Heard the political sphere for a second Ed I know you've been following everything that's been going on.
Lots of questions tonight as Daniel was just saying.
About the president and his role is he doing everything we he can you know we -- -- beautiful pictures of him.
At this ceremony this very so percent ceremony which he presided over -- so elegantly.
Is that gonna play well with voters.
You -- to a certain extent and for a short period of time and obviously as Americans we all have to be saddened by this terrible.
Tragedy for the same time we need some strength here and I think that's what's going on in this region of the country is they wanna drive us out of there.
If they wanna drive us out of -- basically we have initial strength we basically get out we take our money with us we take our protect them.
Troops and what have you that we basically.
Help stabilize that whole region the country.
My sense in this point in time is the longer it goes on it'll slayer and lots of different places and then to be very detrimental to the president.
While it has the president done enough -- his -- -- -- the right one.
Look once the incidents occurred obviously the intent to form a format he did I mean a he has he has acted as the US president the issue is not there.
What has been done towards the Arab Spring and -- of policy.
-- strategy is the issue when we have the opportunity.
Two years ago when youth and women and secular groups and Google guy and FaceBook this is a crowd that did.
The Arab Spring -- -- beginning.
And Egypt when they -- and we did not partner with them what did what did demonstration -- -- the -- with the Muslim Brotherhood not a Muslim Brotherhood are in charge.
Their allies this -- office.
-- strengthen and this is how down now waging this that campaign against that was a mistake in choice two years ago.
How do you respond that can't Danielle having -- -- -- people of the Arab Spring people are are these people who can't get jobs frustrated.
Easily motivated by people who might want -- you.
Get them to protest.
I think that there are certainly other there are some very strong -- -- elements sure there are soccer hooligans -- -- and are unemployed among them.
But the problem here really is PE is is a deeper one than just what happened in the Arab Spring.
Number one it's the abdication of US policy in US leadership in the Middle East if you think of everything that we have done in the region.
For the Arab world at the fact that this is -- we're being -- is.
The other problem I -- is and I -- it real with -- lead here.
I think the president's reaction has not been appropriate I think it's right to stand up and say that the United States will not tolerate these kind of attacks on our citizens.
To condemn these attacks on our citizens is not just a moment for condolences.
It's also a moment to remind the Middle East that we are not a power to be trifle with and that this must end.
Wally you want to respond.
Yes I would like to -- -- agree with the fact that in substance in the speech that was presented we didn't see any explanation now.
From the secretary of state and from the president.
But that is another important thing and I would indicate to you how this crowd is different from the crowd we saw an -- before where are women.
Have you seen women in this footage now where -- the -- -- Now where are the signs that would for change in policy not of course this is -- -- -- crowd or Jihad in -- crowd different from the Arab Spring of -- -- I see are able Ed -- -- is this an October surprise -- what you mean is this gonna provide some kind of turning point.
And you said Romney should not talk about no what I said Romney should not talked about a -- -- the facts.
IDC and -- and and time of crisis when time and and ambassadors.
Is murder you basically don't second guess the president.
Three or four days -- now five days analysis thing goes on.
He has to clearly lay out what his middle east policy would be what's the difference obviously -- -- very significant debate he can be very aggressive that point in time.
But a time of crisis we only have one present we have to be supportive.
This president has chose -- strength though and I think all.
These people understand he's a weakened president he hasn't shown any strength in the past he wants to be loved and I think that's encouraged a lot of this to move forward.
Daniel one what one more question for -- -- -- -- the administration had asked YouTube to look at this video.
What do you make of that.
I think it's absolutely stunning that the president of the United States is asking an American company.
To censor an American no matter how stupid that American has no matter how much of a bigot that American is.
We stand for the proposition that -- America.
You can BS stupid as you need to be and that you can put it on YouTube let me tell you if we wanna start down this road.
There -- all -- awful lot of insulting things on YouTube that Jews and Christians and Muslims and women and men and whites everybody get everyone else aren't gonna love everybody can get angry and for the record the administration is saying that they're not trying to trying to censor anyone they just wanted a -- -- interesting stuff.
Danielle -- Molly thank you so much for coming -- tonight great job everybody appreciate.
