For leaking secrets from the NSA.
Both Russia and China have now refused.
US demands to hand over -- Edwards noted.
And senator Lindsey Graham a Republican fired offer remarks in the last hour saying quote.
-- is an autocratic dictator there defying us in the world and I expect to push back.
I've had it with best the president of the United States is the most powerful force in the world views that force stand up to -- A last -- special report Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer.
Suggested that the president is no longer effective as our commander in chief.
The fact that people don't like state is not new.
What's new is that these.
None lawmakers have no respect for the United States.
As Jason indicates nobody worries.
Or cares about what Obama says because he carries no weight.
-- the president said we're gonna hold accountable those who killed our ambassador in Libya who you know hold -- the authorities and Syria who have been killed so many of their own people he's talked a hundred times about holding.
X or YNG accountable nobody's held accountable and everyone knows that.
And Africa -- they Alan Combs hosted the outcome showed -- Fox News contributor.
Well after template and Chris -- is -- radio host of the Chris plant shows are about ballots.
All right so there you see it news -- -- -- senator Graham is.
Very upset by the way -- that I expect us to do something that I expect I expect us to do something about it.
Let me take it let me give it to you first on your sponsor those two well you know.
Conservatives these are people who are not particularly -- of Obama to begin with -- you know.
I as far as we know I thought we don't know that there are not back channel communications going on between the United States and Russia and for us to jump but at this point to.
Accuse the president of not doing enough or -- bad -- -- does not help the situation what what if diplomacy indeed is still in play.
Why I think it's inappropriate that may be bad -- the Russian leader at a time when it's very sensitive.
Is -- still in play -- because well we're all right let go after we said don't do that and Russia has apparently said.
Now why would give it our play what we assume it is because of their reports they are that they said no we're not giving him -- him back here while that's what they say publicly you and we all know that what goes on behind the scenes of what is that publicly by this leaders.
To appease their -- are two very different things but so far the diplomacy now working.
We don't -- it is it we don't.
You better not let him go all right given back to us and they said.
I think it's too soon to know exactly what is going on besides we don't have control over everything that who doesn't -- put did say today all that the problem could well why should we.
What why is that our role look -- -- have some legitimate.
Issues with the United States including the way adoptees retreated they've got some issues with an American -- that we are -- options my goodness isn't inclined to look.
I was -- this is a question about whether they need to -- standards and more fear us more.
In order to comply with that direct demands of an America residents -- to be an ally Chris I give you that if I -- about fear.
Not like it's you're you're -- respected your feared or your -- Barack Obama has none of the above Barack Obama.
Doesn't know how to use the tools of the presidency he's proven that again and again the Chinese and the Russians Vladimir Putin.
Don't respect Barack Obama they don't fear Barack Obama -- the United States Barack Obama has said he wanted to fundamentally transform the United States.
Nobody ever asked him into watched.
But he's transformed us into a paper tiger I mean you know they they close have no emperor.
He's turned the bully pulpit into the what's -- pulpit and everybody knows that around the world.
The -- we've got people lining up it's not just the Chinese baguette and Allen has not just Vladimir Putin.
We've got Ecuador are lining up to take a shot at -- to jam their thumb in Iraq we've got Venezuela and Cuba you can take -- -- But we've got we've got tyrants and thugs and and tin pot dictators big and small.
Lining up to take shots at the United States because Barack Obama leads from behind Barack Obama's threats are empty Barack Obama is not the leader of the free world he's he's just the leader of the Democrat party -- happening agenda is very.
Existed here in just a -- never like the president begin with -- you didn't which Charles Clark hammered ever particularly like them conservatives were never fans of his.
Use this as an opportunity beat up on him -- to call put names which doesn't help any thing.
And this situation is still evolving situation I don't think this helps anybody to have this kind of rhetoric at this.
Minority say it's still evolving and it's true you know -- mr.
Snowden as far as we know it's still alive.
So it's still -- -- is still evolving but the reports today are that Vladimir Putin's said that.
Russia will not extradite him to the united -- and the foreign minister said.
That our demands to have him extradited to America are un grounded an unacceptable so it seemed like our diplomatic efforts are working -- -- little -- so -- Diplomas and -- -- sort of get Russia did help us with the Boston bombing situation.
Did it help that we do have a complicated I guess this would basically say it's complicated so complicated relationship it -- mean we always get everything you want.
Nor -- meaning every night getting everything we want.
Mean that the president is ineffective you want -- column names fine but that doesn't really help the situation.
Company isn't there now yeah.
Let me jump -- -- -- -- -- the Russians helped us with the Boston bombing well ahead of the Boston bombing and Barack Obama lack of leadership -- under the provisions recklessness and helplessness.
-- the bombing to go ahead and I don't Russians were -- red flags in our face went about it that would be like.
These I didn't really I think that's -- yeah I -- that -- -- -- 9/11 happened left.
Observed the second two are given that I'm Linda -- what you brought it up although I -- an example of some patent okay.
I'm reasserting control.
Let's do our deal of the Boston -- because I want to talk about whether this particular episode.
Where we had a direct I mean we saw President Obama yesterday say.
You know we are speaking.
With the Russians and we are hopeful that this will resolve -- and Jay Carney with some very strong language for the Chinese.
Feeling that they had at a date they had not responded to our direct demands they told us -- what do we can't stop from -- does your paperwork wasn't right.
Before we knew what he was -- -- flight.
And the question is whether they have.
-- respected our president is expected the United States of America and if so why Chris.
Well again because of President Obama look at conservatives are an American I've -- you know I I was raised in the in the Reagan era when I first became politically aware.
Peace through strength has not just a bumper sticker that actually -- there are bad people in the world and and you know they aren't all in the United States says Democrats and Barack Obama apparently softened thanks.
There are bad people out there who are eager to take shots at the United States and when the United States appears weak.
The United States is going to get hit and and this is about.
Deliberately going out of their way the Chinese the Russians that Ecuador's that's up to insult to us curious as when they believe that that they're free to take shots at us and this -- goes to Brock having what would you like Barack Obama actually mr.
plant would like to.
Well first of all it's a little late because they have more on what it is not the -- -- -- -- -- when he wanted to lead and with determination you you are reliable your word means somebody wanted to declare him or she should just declare -- -- -- of course not of course he wanted to -- Let's have a good looking.
I don't know what he what he what he should do now it's a question of how we found ourselves in this position but that's but it is a good question about.
You know how -- another president have gotten himself into a different place -- mean I was so sure that Ronald Reagan who was tough.
Would have gotten a different result from president from from president -- -- us.
No doubt yeah of course Jeff President Obama met recently with the Chinese later in California met recently with Vladimir Putin.
In Europe -- that the G-8.
And -- -- neither of these meetings went well even according to the White House reports that it's clear that what if President Reagan was in the meetings were from they'd know that this is a formidable force that the United States is not something that you -- -- it.
But obviously the impression that they came away -- is that the United States is something that you can mess with that you can get away with it.
Without consequence otherwise they would not be behaving like this yeah Alan you know I could.
That's on that.
We can't -- -- -- behavior of every other country like -- but other countries -- -- that's whether it was 9/11 when bush was president but what happened -- I mean this is not about one person this is about complicated relationship with other countries -- require diplomacy that a bunch of -- -- getting -- people don't even know what might be going on.
Behind the scenes that we can't really -- at this.
Our Ali now as having a guy sees but in front of the scenes -- doesn't doesn't look that up.
Yes thank you thank you.
