Joining us now is senior Romney campaign advisor former New Hampshire governor.
Former chief of staff at the White House John Sununu up for president George H.
Governor great to have you with us -- Let's start with first your thoughts about that unfavorable reaction on that on the part of so many people.
To the governor's handling of his comments following.
The tragedy in been -- Looked Lou that the the important thing that happened last week wasn't the comments the important thing that happened last week is that all of a sudden people are seeing.
The failings of the Obama foreign policy I think I used the phrase on one of the shows -- gone.
That this is the emperor has no clothes moment for that foreign policy people are beginning to understand.
That that even though he's been telling us everything is fine that everything is not fine.
And we see countries around the world demonstrating against America.
And really emphasizing the fact that they're no longer is after.
Three and a half years of of -- policy that has no red lines no definition of what it wants or doesn't want.
The rest of the world does not respect America anymore.
That to that point -- I want to share with your poll that we have just received from pew research.
I don't know if you're aware of it but it -- just been released a survey over.
From September 13 through the sixteenth response to the attacks and Middle East and views.
All of the views of those respondents to the United States if we can go to -- -- please.
Do we have that -- Okay I'm told it's coming that's the technical parlance of our.
In our craft governors or you'll be patient -- read the numbers to -- -- because I don't see anything on the screen OK I will do that we can do that without benefit of graphics which.
I'm going to ask one more time are they coming.
I'm getting -- yes sir that's but usually about buying government.
Nope this everything they have city you for anything -- -- just say yes Citi you've already -- Not -- Not all of my best I don't find policy we need we need somebody that establishes that kind of credibility for America around the world.
That's -- you need Mitt Romney.
Well since -- represented the broadcast I can say that yes that's -- that's credit and what it here half but.
True to their word my colleagues have provided these numbers -- want to share them with you.
As the audience -- this is their view of the United States in 2009 as President Obama took -- in Jordan 74%.
At an unfavorable view of the United States and I -- remind everyone.
The President Obama said he was going to change all of this what he did.
Now the numbers 86%.
In short again the survey of the thirteen through the sixteenth by pew research in Pakistan.
Moving from 68%.
To now 80%.
And in Egypt from 70%.
Hardly the direction that I do this president.
Assumed that he would be able to take this country three and a half years ago partly that's -- the American people.
Those numbers are even worse than than than they hit you with on first blush.
And here's why.
The numbers at the beginning of the Obama administration was when the US was suffering -- from a very difficult long war in Iraq.
And and President Bush before him had started the withdrawals they were finished.
After President Obama came and -- you would think that those withdrawals.
Would have had a very significant positive impact on this.
So I actually think that this impact is from.
From better numbers than the seven before.
And so the erosion is even worse this president has has had a policy which is created disrespect for America.
The like ability factor is not the most important the respect factor is the most important.
And you are seeing in the reactions that that have so much violence involved in them.
The definition of what happens when we'd lose respect around the world -- the last superpower we have a responsibility to help stabilize.
And instead we have created a vacuum of power.
That has destabilize the world I said this president is responsible for.
I suppose that is they differ coal.
If you will balances that knowing when.
-- refusal to exert.
Capriciously our -- -- responsibly power in -- region of the world.
And understanding the difference between creating a vacuum in that part of the world the United States.
Has not happened -- is president George W.
Bush famously -- it.
Foreign policy sense frankly.
Well I think you can argue the date but you would have to go back to at least I think.
The the very administration.
To talk about integrated -- -- humility and our foreign policy.
Look that you you've touched on administration that absolutely understood how to create that balance and and and they understood because they it was a president that came in with -- experience.
That's why Mitt Romney's experience is so important when you sit down to deal with a complicated issue.
You evaluate what you can do what you can't do how much you can push here how much you can push there you're negotiating -- business deal in negotiating with the legislature.
In Massachusetts are you negotiating.
A policy that affects people around the world.
You have to be Smart enough.
To have done it before.
We have a president that came into office -- zero experience in sitting down and negotiating anything.
What you need is somebody that understands that there is give and take.
In the process.
And I think the most important thing Mitt Romney brings to the table.
Is having been through that in difficult situations.
Not only in the private sector but as governor of the state of new head of Massachusetts.
So John I'm not gonna have to put -- down as undecided in this contest at all.
I didn't put me down this scared and I I'm scared that this president has created a situation in the world.
That puts my kids in my grandkids in jeopardy.
The mayor Johnson and -- hours apart back.
Thank you --
