All right -- let's move on to an article on foxnews.com.
About President Obama being urged to seize the reins as the crises -- -- A conflict approaching the civil war in Libya and any time soon nominee in Japan a congress that can't reach a budget and gender equality amid chaos around the world and on Capitol Hill.
President Obama Saturday radio address was devoted to women's history month and a call to pass the paycheck fairness act.
Then the president went golfing.
Dana Perino says I don't know if they don't realize the disconnect or maybe they don't care but it does matter what about that.
While I do like -- not.
If she's watching and she and I were sparring buddies and at they are Reilly factor out regularly and and still do I'm -- shows -- time to time.
You know but I don't it agree -- that same I'll tell you why.
Last week the president met with us senate Democrats regarding the budget on Friday he spoke to Japan.
He spoke to Libya.
And even though he's the commander and chief a great leader not only knows how to lead by example they know how to delegate.
And -- our secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton and in my opinion is there is more than capable of working with the United Nations and NATO.
On and our military our our pentagon.
Deciding if we need to have a no fly zone now remember there are people on both the left in the right that say we need to be cautious about this.
Because this could result in further military intervention.
And we're talking about two wars we're involved in already do we need a third.
In the Middle East and especially in -- a Muslim country and especially with a madman like adopting.
So I find did ironic that you know the president's.
You know get you know I think he's really in touch by talking about.
In a woman's history month.
And by you know talking about equal pay because we obviously have not come a long way baby if we're still talking about that and we don't have that which is the case.
So I think he has covered all the bases and I think this president.
He deserves day off.
Didn't -- get one out of the sudden -- I think well even Karl Rove said you know what I don't begrudge him that day off thing but you know as for.
And a general sense of tone deafness coming from the White House.
That there is definitely their criticism out there from the right.
We do have now our catalyst on the other side yeah.
I have a Bachmann political strategist and analyst thank you so much for joining us usually used -- that's okay.
I'm sure Leslie -- -- -- -- don't -- a you have Leslie Marshall -- I give your opinion for you.
It's about an article -- Foxnews.com.
Where some people are criticizing.
The president for focusing his Saturday radio address.
On women's rights when we have so many major crises going on domestically and overseas in new.
The director of the conservative Heritage Foundation Nile Gardiner says he seems paralyzed.
And on Libya specifically he says the US position is an unusual abdication of leadership by the world's only superpower do you agree.
I absolutely agree although I do agree with it will pay we have to figure out how to get the job stress that we get bigger had to pay people but what -- -- people but when it comes -- stunning aspect of Libya I do think he's kind of been stagnant.
He has made a couple of statements that he has -- actions toward it.
And that's an international perspective that we cannot afford right now we are still a superpower whether we are economically for Edison and -- -- strain our not.
We -- still seen as a leader.
In the national security international security perspective and once we have our president making famous than I'm making action it sends.
Of the wrong message internationally.
On this budget issues going on right now in congress West Virginia Democrat democratic senator Joseph mansion.
I took to the senate floor to say that Obama had failed to lead as congress struggles to agree on a budget for the rest of -- -- eleven.
Just because Heather has gotten.
And I'm looking at -- way to respond.
And I you do -- that aspect also there's there's been.
No will focus on the aspect that earlier.
-- -- -- And we are spending more than -- -- receiving it and we are also creating a debt for futures that are already been affected by in the job loss by any other economic situations that are.
Following this I think the perspective right now is that there hasn't been a focus on.
Really making -- hard and fast cuts that would.
Obviously will not be popular expert says they are in ages of the Chris Christie but required in aren't -- to thrive as a nation colleague of mine sent to -- the end of the -- If we don't cut now we -- now have an.
It's -- -- well what about that even a democratic senator saying that the president has failed to lead on this budget issue.
He's won and he's the only one that saying that I don't think so I mean and the president put forth his budget and basically be a GOP the Republicans have said.
You know we want to cancel every single program that you want to continue to fund.
Item that the Republicans have put forth as a non defense item we all know.
That defense is an area that needs to be caught.
We all know entitlements is an area that need to be -- dirt or need to be -- and and quite frankly there's -- didn't -- to do that on both sides because.
In the sense some fear its political suicide and it's really tough Heidi because the cut huge entitlement programs -- since the first of the year you have 101000 people today entering into those -- of the next nineteen years.
I don't think the president spend.
Yeah I would it what does he need to do and he's not their daddy he's the commander in chief -- last time I checked.
You know it and when I was taught about how you know the the process works.
You know these guys have to come to an agreement -- fifty billion dollars apart and I don't think having coffee the president.
In the Oval Office the west wing or even a Starbucks is going to change.
-- well I am.
I personally disagree with that and he's one of one I think he's one of many I think when you look at numbers such as the congressional budget from the Congressional Budget Office bipartisan organizations as well as partisan organizations on the -- -- They are seen that this budget does not work and when it comes the aspects of cuts no we don't want to cut every single thing he wants to increase -- even every single thing he wants to create.
We want to make sure that that -- the money is spent wisely the money spent his craft a correctly.
And the money that we ten say it.
In order to make -- -- that's it does not become a national and national security issue as it already has the com.
It is as the only way we're going to get at this alive so to speak and the and a perspective we have to say is that an angry with you.
This is Obama's budget this is not democratic budget however with some of the -- famous from Harry Reid who seems to worry about.
Cowboys how poets we have to realize -- there's a perspective here that we need to.
Maintained which is that we do not have the money to spend on some of the programs including entitlement national security -- he was Mitch McConnell said.
The national security issues are issues.
But it managed as we should be throwing money at a swap.
On that note unfortunately we have to ended we wanted to thank Leslie Marshall love for joining us from the LA bureau and.
