Only president Barack Obama who had mastered the hard -- -- scare tactics -- apocalypse well -- -- -- he's not alone.
That this somehow while senate majority leader Harry Reid is now found a way to take fear mongering to a whole new.
Not happen yesterday during what can only be described as a shameful display on the floor of the US senate.
That's when the top Democrat on Capitol Hill took it upon himself to imply that the tragic accident.
I took the lives of seven Marines and Nevada on Monday happen because of the sequester.
Allocation miss senator Reid's incredibly insensitive stupid idiotic statement well here -- us.
This president late last night.
Seven of our Marines were killed and -- And many others were injured in the explosion during a training exercise -- the ammunition people it's very important we continue training our military.
But one of the things and sequester.
He has been cut back and training.
That's always -- -- portrait it's just not appropriate.
That have more military can't train and do the mean that's mastering these men and women who are Marines were training and -- And with -- -- it's gonna cut the stuff back.
I'd almost immediately following -- ridiculous comments reaction -- began to pour in including from top Marine Corps officials who accused the -- Nevada senator a political.
Posturing all on the backs of dead Marines but as usual.
What a Democrat when they're caught saying something dumb and stupid they accuse everyone of taking them out of context.
And that's pretty much more or less what a spokesman for Harry Reid had to say yesterday afternoon he said quote.
The idea that senator Reid thinks the -- -- tragedy.
Has anything to do -- to sequester is absurd and unsubstantiated.
But his remarks on the topic Marines would not be forced to operate under unsafe conditions due to budget cuts.
It was very clear that he was implying that maintenance was not conducted in more -- because of -- sequester period a really joining me with reaction.
Former New Hampshire governor John Sununu.
You know what I'm a little so I am fed up what slander.
I'm fed up with a -- governor.
This is the same guy during the campaign you were -- part of it.
That said -- a source told me.
Mitt Romney's not pay taxes for ten years it's got a record of this slander in these lies.
Happy Wednesday -- look this -- the that this is I had a majority leader in the senate that has gotten caught lying many times.
And when the Marine Corps says that what he is saying is unsubstantiated.
They're saying he's lying again.
Harry Reid has made a habit of being dishonest on the floor of the senate.
And what he is trying to do is just covered the presidents but on sequester.
The president himself started to cover his own but.
By playing such silly games as shedding the White House tour is down.
This is just another version of that remembered Donald Trump offered to pay for all those white -- toward -- and the president didn't take among.
NN I offer to pay for a week after my body are rolling out his -- don't forget me your -- up but not much like my operas off the table that are not -- anymore I -- -- -- taxes.
You know you don't want to -- I I.
I you don't Bill Maher 80 yeah my buddy Bill -- but -- even get a second pay in taxes.
And he said California very proud to loosen him G-8 plot well.
Time to wake up bill.
But here's my point.
These Democrats get away with this slander this non stop libel this constant demonization where's president civility now.
You know lectures republicans' ability only when it suits him.
And he himself -- this parade.
Well look that that's terrible and its own right and and the press -- him get away with it.
But the worst thing that he does that the press lets the president get away with is no lack of leadership.
There is no leadership on the main issues.
Facing America today in terms of the economy.
Coming out of the White House because it did leadership on on tough issues requires the president to take political risk and he won't do it.
This is a guy who will say anything.
That is appropriate to the group in the room and that's exactly what he's doing in Israel today he's saying what's appropriate.
To the group in the Rome.
I know Bibi Netanyahu pretty well.
People are my first book when it came out back in 2002 he's a strong leader and thank god at least there was one adult in the room.
And as one adult that understands the nature of of -- battle -- conflict between good and evil in our time.
BV there's no way he does not see through this president's -- yes I didn't give rarely he's you know it.
He knows where Obama's comment from I think I think he knows full well he can't trust them.
Luck sometimes -- sometimes folks that we don't completely agree with.
At least go about things in a constructive way Bill Clinton.
Went about trying to deal with the Middle East question in a way that that really began to make some progress that was a balanced perspective.
It was something that began that that that.
Certainly looked like he understood the nuances that were important to both sides this president is clumsy.
He is he he says one thing on Monday changes his mind on Tuesday and says a different thing on Wednesday and he doesn't understand.
That what that does is create a lack of trust in farm policy.
The one thing I learned -- working with George Herbert Walker Bush is that the most important thing in the world this for people to trust America.
And I have a feeling that America world will be very dealing with the national security issues.
On both counts this President Obama has lost.
People do not trust President Obama and they are not sure that America will be there on national -- That's an awfully honest I don't trust them.
He's so dishonest and the way it plays politics to get these are demagogue he -- will abandon and the media doesn't -- out on it.
I -- I don't trust them I don't believe what he says -- -- -- -- it.
And -- DP DPT.
Happy Wednesday back -- that this right nobody -- this man I don't trust them I mean I have if I'm BV no way what I trust them.
You go through the if you go through whatever the motions have to go through.
It would be better if he had a strong ally especially if -- gonna have to take out Iran -- nukes within a year.
They need they needed seed but if not Israel -- to go Lorenzo.
Has to understand he has to build trust that home.
He has to -- he has to build trust around the world he has to take some political risk.
Instead of just political demagogues are capable of it he's rigid radical all the time.
Never stops -- right governor good to see if they -- he has he he he has a strange agenda.
That pretty soon even his own friends are gonna begin to understand.
Is designed around an Obama legacy.
Not preventing problems per hour in the world let's see what the senate Democrats.
Up for reelection in 2014 in these.
Red states let's see how long they stay by -- appreciate being with us.
It's going to be an interesting election cycle here as as Democrats who are looking -- -- report.
From the White House discover that the White House is only concerned about the man in the White House.
Johnson and thanks for being with us coming up.
