Liters -- not born they evolved.
They earn respect because of their character integrity.
Leaders are direct clear and concise.
Abraham Lincoln was a leader Ronald Reagan was a leader.
Leaders don't give their vacillate get boxed into corners or play games.
They make the hard decisions they don't pass them off on others they understand.
-- buck stops with them.
Hello and welcome to justice -- -- should mean -- thanks for being with us tonight.
What a difference a week makes first the president is hell bent on a military strike in Syria.
But then backs off and decides to ask congress for permission.
Then he asked congress to delay their vote on giving him permission.
Because John Kerry made an off hand off script remark which even his own State Department dismissed as rhetorical.
And the latest.
We reach an agreement with a rush out to forced Syria to give up its chemical weapons just like that.
The Washington to step in -- swing.
-- president Vladimir Putin now the new peacekeeper in chief.
The go between for the United States and the people we were about to bomb.
We are now going to rely on Russia to dissolve the chemical weapons -- in Syria.
For two years Mr.
President you've said Asad has to go but -- did nothing.
A year ago -- drew another one of your make believe bread lines but did nothing.
Despite over a 100000 people killed last week you suddenly announce it as commander in chief you will order a military strike.
The American public understandably is outraged they don't want more American blood -- What to do.
Back off the commander in chief thing and outsourced the decision to congress.
But if congress faults you say you'll go back to being commander in chief and go ahead where -- limited strike.
You're the leader of the free world.
Do it or don't do it don't talk about it if you are talking and dithering that got us into this mess in the first place.
Now why watch the west wing.
Diplomacy and done in secret behind closed doors what's without my cell man we're gonna go win and -- want baloney.
Every time you open your mouth you get engine trouble.
Do you even think about the consequences of what he's saying.
Don't check hash this stuff out ahead -- time isn't that what your cabinet and advisors are for.
It's amateur hour in Washington.
You can't even keep the script straight into we knew when -- secretary of state and your own State Department.
The only thing you've done is prove to the world -- -- nothing to be afraid of not to be respected but -- don't say what you mean and -- don't mean what you say.
Why would anyone even want to be the ally of the United States.
Enter John Kerry who tells congress that it will be quote an unbelievably.
-- -- makes no sense to me.
How -- an unbelievably small strike eliminate chemical weapons or bring the civil war to an end in Syria or change anything at all.
And to show you knuckle heads are not even on the same page you -- then disagree with -- year old secretary of state.
The united states military doesn't do pin -- Even a limited strike will send a message to a -- that no other nation can deliver.
-- by the way Mr.
How can you guarantee.
Your tomahawk missile won't kill civilians and children.
And don't give me that satellite laser thing.
A thousand pound missile will bring down buildings and cause immense collateral damage well beyond your precise strike zone.
But and -- big bad -- -- doing up food and they have it.
The Russian president throws a lifeline to both Syria is -- -- and to the president of the United States.
Who knows that the American public and the international community is against him.
President Putin's CG was an easy mark -- -- you like -- -- the president of the United States has been played cornered.
-- the water supplying arms suicide.
Putin is the one of the things a little wasn't he wouldn't even handover someone you -- -- -- after five weeks of negotiations.
-- is a one offering the anti missile defense system to stop our missiles from hurting -- son.
Potent as the one who last week called her -- secretary of state and out right liar.
But today he's our ally the -- upon whom you relied to save face.
And is food and rides -- avid sports.
He tries to sway the public.
In an op Ed piece that other than just criticism of the United States exceptional is that most Americans -- -- -- I for one believe in American exceptional listen.
And I hate kowtowing to Moscow.
Especially to -- former KGB agent for resolution to our problem that we should have been able to handle ourselves.
Put -- what Americans are asking things you Mr.
President can answer.
How was a strike against Syria in our national security interest and why would the United States risk entering -- civil war that will clearly spread far beyond Syria.
And on this who -- credible.
Russia is the patron of Syria as well as Iran.
Russia has a vital interest in the region that a -- I've talked about attacking.
The Obama administration drinks its own Kool Aid.
Now says that a -- was really afraid of a military strike and that was only the US threat of force that prompted Asad.
To make these concessions.
Do you really think it's not is afraid of boss he -- that papers he do that -- First the international community the UN the EU NATO and the brits or all against a strike.
And no surprise.
You and still hasn't issued its opinion on who issued and use those chemical weapons in Syria.
So why -- we letting -- would be the intermediary.
Delivering messages from a guy who we say.
Is in no position to set terms and who we don't believe who we now want to believe.
Just to save face.
If you were serious.
You -- -- forward with congressional permission to show strength.
In the event of what I think is the inevitable refusal by Syria to hand over all chemical rapids.
President admit -- you've been playing caught flat footed by -- dabble who doesn't Wear Prada.
Through your effect lists and inept foreign policy -- squandered the goodwill.
And the reputation.
Of this great nation.
You engage in diplomacy through public conversations with your finger to the wind.
United States of America deserves better.
The man who made the monumental decisions that contributed to the greatness of America.
Did it from a position of strength and respect.
They didn't make these decisions on stage.
But rather in the quiet of the Oval Office after consultation.
Of the consequences.
You sit in the same office where Lincoln FDR and Reagan sat.
But you are no Lincoln no FDR.
And you wore no Reagan.
To most of us 20s16.
Can't come soon enough.
