-- -- -- It is up to your leaders.
As someone who knows firsthand how politics can encourage division and discourage cooperation.
I admire the NORTHERN IRELAND executive in the Northern Ireland Assembly all the more for making power sharing war that's not easy to do.
It requires compromise.
And it requires absorbing.
Some pain from your own side.
And that is evidence of just how bad things are in Washington as President Obama.
Arriving last night our time.
-- -- In NORTHERN IRELAND.
In the proto hillbilly firewall with my cousins over there in NORTHERN IRELAND comparing this -- -- in Washington.
To the troubles in NORTHERN IRELAND for centuries of -- strife between Catholics and Protestants.
And this is power play and I and -- -- -- And happy about it faith in regard to this morning as the president gets ready four -- meetings at the G-8 with -- Vladimir Putin whose taunting him.
President Jie of China who had some concerns about US online snooping.
Interesting point of view for a country that is age digital dictator.
So what about that.
What about what he left behind here -- We will do all of that you'll get into that and more.
We'll talk about presidents credibility.
As it is seen dropping in some holes in the end.
As a special Monday delight -- -- one break there.
The anchor of special report with -- there.
Who sorry Scott Kelly has more than a thousand words we'll do all of that you'll enjoy it I guarantee -- will enjoy it because.
When it started right we're gonna kick it off right we're gonna do it properly.
And that is to say hello to David -- he's the senior congressional correspondent of the Washington examiner follow -- David Drucker.
And while it good to be recognized on the Internet some breaking news -- today's the first day first day of the new newly reborn Washington examiner.
We talked on Friday with -- makes -- a former colleague who.
Basic good -- to -- print newspaper correct -- Where.
But today as we say hello to the new Internet presence of congratulations thank you very much it's -- great -- it's easy to navigate its clean.
And make huge critic of -- when it's so.
Everybody should go check it out and enjoy it that's good stuff there today.
One thing that is good that's there today in fact -- that he mentions it is benefits and orders a Q&A with Marco Rubio yes.
Written by some guy named David tour.
I don't know what this is all about.
But you had a chance to talk to.
Senator rubio now conservatives are giving him fitness program I I mean they are lighten him up.
About this immigration bill and all -- -- mean to the Schumer rubio immigration something like that yet.
So let's take a listen to what senator rubio had to say.
-- -- -- -- -- -- Nine B 596%.
Of the bill.
Isn't perfect shape and ready to go but there are elements that need to be improved.
-- 6% perfect.
Now conservatives see this legislation.
That's correct I think it's fair to point out the conservatives are split this isn't your usual partisan divide Washington with with Democrats on one side and Republicans most conservatives.
Ask congress stands right now on the others you have a lot of conservatives not just revealed.
Who are interested in comprehensive immigration reform and willing.
To either vote for a bill or not screened down a bit.
And -- not scream that art instead includes a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants that are currently in the country.
And I think what rubio is trying to do we talked about this and what -- it is -- in my QNAS that.
He lays out one that he does plan to propose -- border security amendment to his own bill that he negotiated as a part of the game today.
And what he wants that bill to be what he wants that amendment to look like if he wants to take away.
The -- -- makes delegation of it border security plan from.
Homeland Security from whoever is in the White House and their Homeland Security -- -- with the way the bills right now it's where the original bill was written is basically that.
If it is up to it would be up to if -- -- in place now Janet Napolitano to say the border is secure let us now proceed to correct legalization correct.
And he wants congress through this bill to say exactly what the border security plan will be determined what success will mean and the administration.
According to his plan would then have to carry out what congress has directed in this regard so.
I think there's a long way to go on this yet either for people who want to pass where people want it.
And I think to get up.
Review process -- her for everybody working on his rubio may be among the most inexperienced in terms of longevity but I think he's Smart having.
I think he smartly understands the way you do something as politically sensitive and that's by.
Trying to treated as a process that is guaranteed to pass or fail but that tries to build from one step to the next.
And so he's trying to.
Influence senate floor today that doesn't just look for any way to get to sixty votes in the passing move on and try and pressure house Republicans who you're not a pressure.
But he's trying to get a lot of -- -- from senate Republicans.
So you can get to somewhere where you actually have seventy votes for more.
Hey come god Panama and -- food that's what he wants now I'd say it's possible but.
Look at it this way if you have a bare majority sixty votes.
There's things dead in the water it it's not that this bill did in the water in the house.
But it's that the -- there's no momentum is the idea is okay basically they scraped together sixty votes in the senate.
This is going to be really hard to do if you can get let's say a dozen Republicans in your right fifteen Republicans all of a sudden.
It's looking more easily.
It's looking okay it's looking more feasible as we know -- good lap that he has Judiciary Chairman is going to.
-- he's breaking it apart correct and but they're collecting it sort of in the silos are three.
Essentially there -- 33 silos buckets inside the senate bill that has to do with.
That have to do with the immigration system as we know this would include pieces that -- guest worker programs that edit -- and then there's the then there's that one big bucket that has everybody so freaked out.
Which is about about those ten million illegal immigrants correct is one due crap that so there's the -- -- good -- says.
I'm not doing them together but I'm gonna do them bucket by bucket correct and I actually think Bob -- let it.
And speaker Boehner this regard they're very Smart and they understand that the way you get to a potential outcome and house.
Is doing them separate inviting a lot of buying and participation from various house let's man.
Batman -- say don't say this is good this is all make sense it's.
Understandable but aside from the fact that we are experiencing.
Eight total crisis essentially in Washington is everybody's freaked out around NSA DOJ IRS -- I mean every Akron.
Every acronym you know -- FDA is next right.
EPA immediately you guys in the makes everybody's email but it's freaked out so you got that part as Washington is -- game it.
It reformation and counter reformation cycle.
And it's brutal.
-- from that.
Every day brings us closer to the day that the budget deal has to be made.
Correct and the one piece of breathing room here is that we're not -- debt -- until the fall which pretty much means to me we're going to be your Christmas Eve message that's him it's not.
-- very I don't think that that will get.
-- to folded into the -- and well acted with your what do you know that depends it depends on what the Congressional Budget Office -- of the senate bill and you know many house races and that.
Is -- be -- chat out there that you don't really know what it's gonna do.
What it's going to do to the immigration debate is seriously this is why people want this thing to pass.
Are very concerned about all of the things you -- loaded up with you know if you build a huge fans what's the cost I mean it's not even so lots of Republicans the gang -- -- against -- -- -- what is -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- this -- -- -- France online wherever you may find that you will find him to be delightful and an excellent David -- thank you for being all of those sincere thanks to an easy -- -- -- -- let's go examiner at.
After -- -- -- power play which I'm just about to tweet.
Right now about to give it to you Internet I'm sorry I was withholding.
But I just wanted it to bright enough or maybe I'm sure but I don't send it out while we take this quick break.
Terms of credibility I don't think he has credibility and one of the biggest problems we have is we've got an important point where.
The president of the United States ought to be able to stand -- and this is -- program it's a good program at save American lives and I support it.
And the problem is the guy has failed to be forthright and honest.
And credible and things like -- Gaza in the IRS so he's got no credibility.
And that's is -- painful lesson to hear from one that Richard B Cheney former vice president of the United States talking air.
To Chris Wallace on Fox News Chris Wallace.
About Barack Obama's credibility as it relates -- administering the NSA's.
Domestic surveillance program and this is power play and welcome back.
We're gonna talk about some people -- apartments and -- -- -- generally what does Barack Obama to about the fact that people are giving him -- eyebrow.
Hairy -- as they look at.
Things all of those things that are sending his administration.
We will do that.
With your eyes and into -- because.
When your friends Terry -- He's a partner at HD and K he's a former spokesman for John Boehner and he is structures were.
Bush Cheney aptly enough campaigns of 2000 weakness were terrible welcome back.
Last few years it made me really miss -- is -- stories especially after yesterday saying vice president well.
It looked so good and cartel so much truth that your heart is working out well yes yes yes yes Doug shown who needs no new -- because these.
Is agreed with.
Great with pride for this country and the good work he does -- Addiction is a Fox News contributor he is the co host political insiders right here.
On the Internet.
And he is also pollster strategist for the house of Clinton he is a Democrat and he is our welcome guest and friend welcome back respect.
OK so Dick Cheney when Dick Cheney feels free to -- you on credibility for domestic surveillance.
You're not having your best week on credibility.
Well I was a little surprised by some of the vice president's comments -- It's undeniable from the Fox News and indeed CNN polls that.
The president is losing votes.
-- job approval and credibility is right there but as I heard the president he's defended.
And there are oversight -- there's checking phone records and the prison programs as being necessary for national security so I don't believe that he's necessarily.
Hopeful -- -- but if you go to you know -- guys see you go to the IRS.
-- and certainly are many many unanswered.
Terrorism there's a -- that you could hear old what Doug said it does but basically Doug said was whatever one thinks about the evidence that.
As Cheney pointed out -- vice president out when you've got other problems with other things that go to your credibility it's hard to say but on this one.
I swear everything's on the up.
If it's it's impossible after this cascade of revelations about about the Obama administration to rescue yourself by saying I don't know are we really are here -- that's their credibility.
Has been eroded slowly at first with Republicans and conservatives who are always suspicious of President Obama.
But when it comes to these national security issues and and and privacy and -- the Big Brother issues those have always been.
Really core interest -- the left and for some of his most ardent supporters.
Who wanted him to -- -- shut down Guantanamo Bay who wanted him to have a more humane approach.
And and and and to avoid things like two grown assassinations.
And now he goes to Europe.
And the Europeans who are pretty much -- last allies.
-- Europe he's now.
Got them sort of repelled by his behavior over the last couple weeks so I think there there in a tough spot right now.
Thankfully doesn't have to be -- -- Paying down you don't see that CNN did a poll I -- And let me quote view from my favorite column of -- -- Like it today's news CNN poll reaffirms that the effort is not succeeding the assessment of Obama's honesty trustworthy dropped under 50% for the first.
And nine point slide from last month -- job approval.
Down overall tank with young voters dropping seventeen.
He was down ten points with independents to this thing with the -- the president.
You know it it's sort of a catch 22 from a polling and strategy when -- because the voters that dislike this the most.
Are not going to be that they're not -- if the president -- -- to defend these policies right.
-- it's absolutely true and Chris there's one recommendation US.
At the outset what does the president do.
The answers change the subject if -- -- that -- possibly do that that is talked about the economy talked about job creation.
Health care talk about anything other than an -- IRS AP.
James Rosen Ben Ghazi -- there are no good answers and to the extent there are good answers their answers that are not necessarily.
Gonna help them with core constituencies that he needs so he's got to just emphasize.
Is doing the people's business and trying to read to achieve.
Progress and accuse the Republicans.
Of overreaching in excess of partisanship.
And certainly he's here that I haven't heard anything and I certainly feel -- what what what yeah how -- you -- now but I -- you I want -- I would -- does farmers aren't available pressure in the simultaneous translation much like who you're talking about people beating hearts and in -- -- the and the deal is Doug says that the president asked you.
-- that he's doing the people's business moving on yes these things are going -- but I've got important stuff to deal with.
We're George W.
Bush when he reached this point he didn't reach this point really after Hurricane Katrina that it started the -- the puncture occurred.
And you could feel the -- really go to three years along slows yes it belongs let's -- and then to come out.
For the president.
For president George W.
Bush he made a decision which was.
The Iraq War has to take precedence over.
Everything else I would say veteran who has been nationals that the national security of the United States of America in the form of of our policies is that -- a better idea as as it was you've surmised in those days the global war on terror -- -- right that that had to take precedence protect the country was the first and only priority and if people didn't like it so basically bush rode down to it 30% job approval rating with the spurs job.
It can Obama do something you know.
Does he need to make a choice and decide what's really important in and then defend that to the end -- well.
The erosion of his support you mentioned young people that.
The erosion of his support is now as a -- now occurring in his own.
Demographic support groups if you're young person you were so high expectations in the first term of the Obama administration.
And yet you've seen an economy still leaving you behind you you've seen a promise to get uninsured more health care.
But the Obama care story is is is more about the cost of it and who will not be included.
And what kind of insurance won't be provided for people and then -- at the end of the day young people wind up paying more for their health insurance under President Obama.
And then you see that.
You know if your college -- right now and you've got student loans Obama was supposed to save you from the student loan police.
And now they're looking at a huge new increase in student loan and in this administration seems to be -- -- even for its its core supporters in that that is.
Really it's not a long slow slide that's right right over the cliff for -- -- specific.
What is an issue that the president could pick up and carry forward what is there that he could grab ahold -- right now and say look you may not like this stuff but I.
I have these things and I'm going to carry broken immigration -- -- form.
-- he's taken Terry's advice and he's doing student loans.
Absolutely immigration is is there.
The challenge that I see Chris is the bill as it.
Now -- appears is pretty draconian in terms of a path to citizenship I think he's gonna lose some people on the left.
I also worry is I think you were saying.
That he runs the risk of losing some people on the right such as Marco.
Rubio and I I'm curious yours and terrorists -- -- is to the likely chances of passage.
Well to get -- reaction to that -- on whether.
Where where -- I thought.
-- -- now does not is that that is -- -- -- notices it is it is somebody will record.
The writes opera unfortunately.
Old man musical can't hold on this issue is whether his other hillbilly like me -- -- digital divide.
Here we thank you -- him.
-- we thank you and that is approximately 22% Smart.
So you can think these guys that were going to take a quick break.
When we come back you'll get even smarter -- because -- -- waiting in the wings to talk about one is -- areas of expertise.
Which export policy excellence here he -- Smart yeah -- it's different.
We have to be very discerning.
About what's in our interest.
And what the outcome what outcome is best for us and the prices that were willing to pay to get to that place -- I would rush to war in this region in the past we're not gonna do it.
-- Massive understatement came from Denis McDonough he is the White House chief of staff he was appearing on face the nation on CBS.
Us and his power play and welcome back and what mr.
McDonough was saying that was -- we're not rushing towards here.
Well that's true in the sense that there's been a inner religious ethnic civil war -- -- that nation and maybe a 100000 dead.
That's been going on for a couple of years and that president now -- publicly saying her.
People please and we're gonna -- and -- US arms to flow into the hands of the rebel forces.
What about that.
What about Bret Baier -- heat and the team aspect report with Brit Brit air which you must and should watch every night at 6 o'clock eastern have been reporting.
We're definitely not rushing whatever will be said about -- this is not -- to right.
No definitely not this is been a long time coming and there's lot of criticism of Capitol Hill about.
It's too little too late in the interim between the time when.
Many lawmakers said there was confirmation that Syria did use chemical weapons against people -- now.
The number of -- increased and Hezbollah and Iran -- in a lot of people and equipment and funding so.
Things have gotten -- worse not better the question is you know.
-- -- Putting in small arms machine guns ammunition and training.
Is going to turn any tie against Russia's SA sevens.
And Hezbollah Iran.
It's a tough calculation to think that that's going to be enough to do to help the rebels overcome.
You were JD points as we were rushing to war in the last fourteen months -- you would have thought that we would have already been there.
Now we have to choose between helping al-Qaeda groups in Syria or really helping them by doing nothing so it is this like if you do nothing.
The al-Qaeda groups gained strength as part of the rebel forces and push out.
Last militant islamists that the militant as they're fighting some war but they say they won't be militant after they -- and or were you join the fight and you are those folks as we -- and -- guys in Libya the results Arnold.
And this is no good choice deal yet but it seems like -- in an effort to split the difference.
It's the worst shorts the worst of the worst -- worst of all she had the worst of all possible options.
Is that you end up with islamists but they teach you more because you didn't really good so we're -- and then now -- rocket launchers near here's what Vladimir Putin had to say yeah -- She -- -- a public shaming of David Cameron.
Ten Downing Street let's take a lesson.
-- know it's denying that not a city that the bailout is -- the hands of the both parties have both of the parties.
That would -- -- and there's always a question -- Who these -- to blame momentum was to blame -- -- I believe you will not deny the fact that president repudiate according to 100 for the fact those foothills that time it means that you.
In the needs of that or guns.
One should Hartley back those who kill their enemies and keep their organs now I'll just point out if you would if the Russian history was any -- -- would have liked series several noble houses of Russia would not have been.
Ever constituted but that's that's -- -- Is -- is just playing the west and Cameron and Obama at this G-8 summit over Syria because.
There -- -- video guy -- somebody's heart that Gilles sort of put a damper on your enthusiasts.
Yes and Russia's not -- that it is fine yes funneling money and weapons everything into their allies Syria.
And this meeting to be a fly on the wall between President Obama and -- -- Something tells me frosty may not be.
What we need to describe.
And he says as it turns -- you have less flexibility now and your second term than you did before you have almost no flexibility you -- your business and this is true and you've seen this in presidencies before you've covered it.
You -- at the White House.
When you've got domestic trouble when you're under siege -- -- it is real hard to go on the road and go out there and not take more brick bats to the head.
Not only that you have Edwards Snowden typing away at what documents he has including one that says that British and SA along with the US knowing.
Snooped on the G-20 summit in 2009 including listening ended.
Russian president -- -- -- so you have these things that complicate an already complicated diplomatic situation.
I don't think that there will be any.
Upper hand to be gained in that Vladimir Putin made.
And lives as museum twenty points out here who steals another -- if -- Yes if he adds that with them.
And I I will defend -- in this regard is that the Russian standard out.
What do you know who gets what -- -- or whatever like like look at this -- -- -- thank you thank you I got go -- -- Well that's Brit Brit does it all the time to check out this new what does don't believe that's him right there -- on and tonight.
We have Charles.
Steve and more.
Breathe a sigh of relief that.
And we'll be back so we can get back stealing from -- every -- as we like to do what we thank you for -- -- first -- sure.
We thank you for your time today as previously disclosed there is no -- -- whichever word from Vladimir so that's something.
