Right joining me now our congressman Cory Gardner of Colorado and congressman's Pete Peterson -- Mexico.
Let me start with you congressman -- your your new to the show I believe I'm not mistaken.
Should the -- in this part the president spent the day at the UN podium today.
But He also spent last night yesterday afternoon last night and he'll spend most of tonight.
Fund raising what what what's going on here is this a UN trip is a set.
Of foreign policy diplomacy trip boards this fund raiser.
Let's make it clear I think this president has decided he's going to be doing nothing but campaign for the next fourteen months He talked about.
The politics it's just map -- the White House will you know what He has decided that it's the politics of division.
And that's what he's doing to this country to spending time in New York instead of addressing a very serious situation 100% of the time dealing with what the Palestinians are attempting to do.
United Nations is decided that you can nest in money in and campaign for -- -- I believe this president needs to concentrate.
Let's take a listen to what mr.
Obama said about the Palestinian state take a listen this.
I know particularly this week.
-- for many of -- hall there's one issue that stands and they test for these principles.
And a test for American foreign policy.
That the conflict between the Israelis and the Palestinians.
One year ago.
I stood at this podium and I called for an independent Palestine.
I believe that -- and I believe now.
That the Palestinian people deserve a state of -- Okay.
Top Thompson appears -- you heard him say mr.
Obama say a year ago He thought the Palestinian there could be a chance that the Palestinian would the state would be a sovereign nation.
A year later here we are.
Now Israel's standing up saying what are you doing to us how could you support.
The Palestinians when they have Hamas a known terrorist organization.
On their parliament so what what's your response to President Obama.
He says that the Palestinians -- estate.
But the also has said he's going to be told that -- the Security Council again it's mixed messages those mixed messages I think are creating more instability in the Middle East.
We have to deal with the fact that the Palestinians are are supported.
That they're actually involved with Hamas terrorist group so we really.
The president needs to be clear if He supports Israel support Israel.
If He supports the Palestinians as far as being a terrorist -- -- go ahead and support them.
But don't give us both sides.
-- congressman -- what is it that you know you you're a Tea Party freshman you guys are fiscally conservative.
Then you hear things like the in 2009 we send bilateral aid directly to Palestinians.
980 million dollars and the following two years 20102011.
Somewhere around 500 million dollars that's just direct aid that doesn't include the UN aid that we supported the rate about 22%.
What does that tell you what -- your constituents will.
What does that tell them who -- a smaller government and by the way were already broken and we what are we spending all this money on Hamas and and Palestine.
I think this country since about one point 2% of its budget on foreign aid.
And if you go back to president George H.
Bush what secretary baker then had said.
And that their position was if there is a -- for statement by the Palestinians who -- outside of and negotiated peace strategy that the United States would cut off funding for the Palestinian Authority in -- that is something that needs to be.
Taken into consideration that promise made by president George H.
Bush it by this president today.
I took listen of it throw this out there -- -- -- guys can see a natural we're gonna put this up.
-- we're we're working their way through this the flag burning do we have the flag burning check of the business you guys don't have returned.
You're not seeing about I'm in an area for your congressman -- right now while mr.
Obama was making his way to be UN podium.
Intended Gaza -- are in the West Bank.
Burning American flags please comment.
I just don't think that we have pay people hate assembly they'll do it for free zone.
I would support cutting off aid to all organizations of all countries that work for the out -- of Israel or the overthrow the United States.
It and congressman Gardner.
Both caught both Rick Perry governor Perry and then -- Michelle Bachmann came out.
Really kind of trashing mr.
Obama's stance on Israel.
What's your assessment of Obama is He pro Israel or is -- anti Israel.
I think this president has tried to have a.
Both ways on Israel trying to appease both sides of this issue there is no.
That both -- when it comes to Israel we will stand by Israel we will defend Israel.
They are greatest ally in the Middle East and we have an obligation to make sure that that relationship continued strong.
Not by the United States leading the negotiating process but by letting the Israelis and Israel and the Government of Israel.
Through its own negotiate peace congressman -- take a listen to governor Perry on his.
His calling -- mr.
Obama on on his Israel policy.
We would not be here today at this very precipice.
Of such a dangerous -- If the Obama policy in the Middle East wasn't and I need.
And good standing right next to mr.
Perry at that podium right behind his right shoulder.
Was a brand new congressman a brand new Republican congressman.
Who won a seat that was 488 years a Democrat held that seat and now New York nine is it one of your fellow members in the Republican side of the house what what say you on mr.
Perry's assessment of the Obama Israel plan.
I think -- areas that going things that we all worry about that mister Obama is forgetting how long term friend and ally Israel and they've -- -- states that have not -- even yup where.
I think He is speaking for this Arabs praying.
Which have potential to inflame across the Arab countries.
I'm worried about present -- wrote an -- bad about it after his speech on the floor of the house.
After his comments and when mr.
Netanyahu came on the floor of the house.
We made comments that we should support Israel there first line pants and a very unstable region all right.
