Hello everybody I'm Gerri Willis President Obama and Mitt Romney back on the campaign trail.
Where the president is blasting Romney's foreign policy is wrong reckless.
But one Republican senator says it's for -- -- under Obama's watch that needs to be looked at.
And is bringing his -- to several key senate races with more on this.
Rand Paul of Kentucky.
Welcome back to the show always great to see you.
So even talking about foreign aid for a long time now and now you're putting your money where your mouth this tell us about these ads.
Who were running ads in now West Virginia Ohio Florida.
Missouri and were contemplating going into Montana and Pennsylvania next.
Letting people know that their senators continue to vote to send aid.
Two countries that are burning our flag and not protecting our embassy -- I think most Americans would be a.
All to know this well and then it's not chump change.
We get past Pakistan two point one billion -- to one point six -- Libya thirteen point one million.
She only yank all of this money from these countries and what's the basis for deciding who gets -- who doesn't.
Well there was a story today the president of Egypt.
Saying -- -- to annihilating the Jews.
And I don't see giving money to people who use our policy is to annihilate to -- I also don't see giving money to countries who were allowing the mob to attack our embassy -- to burn our flag.
So what I ask in my and then meant that many of these senators voted against was to make the -- contingent.
They have to be willing and able to protect our embassies.
Pakistan should turn over the doctor that helped us get bin Laden.
And Libya should turn over the people who assassinate our ambassador.
Does the very least you can do.
The we're putting these the senators on notice who voted for -- say.
And letting them know that we will participate election and let their voters know how they voted.
I wanna show up picture of these senators that you're talking about here Joseph mansion Bill Nelson Sherrod Brown.
Claire McCaskill mention responded to this what's -- what he had to say.
Oh -- we don't have that sound right now but yeah.
I think these senators probably aren't too happy about having your pac dollars go into the air raids have they talked -- at all about this.
I haven't talked to anybody personally know what I would say is that I think 980% of Americans Republican or Democrat.
Are tired of seeing our money go overseas -- we have problems at -- We have bridges that need to very repaired we have -- need to be repaired and people in Kentucky.
And across the United States don't understand why we're sending our money to countries that are burning our flag and -- chanting death to America.
I don't think most taxpayers understand that these senators all have some explanation but it makes no sense to me and I think it makes no sense to the American voter.
Well really -- -- to -- debate last night I'm I'm wondering if you thought Romney missed an opportunity.
To attack the president on his handling of Libya.
You know our -- would have been stronger but I think Romney is so far ahead that he doesn't wanna come out and be.
Two antagonistic towards a president -- about the president look defensive.
Like someone who's behind.
And looked unhappy throughout most of the debate I think Romney looked very competent.
-- what I would have said that I think -- didn't say strong enough was.
I would have said to the president.
Why -- there -- no Marines guarding the ambassador.
Why did you remove the security team guarding the ambassador and why did you remove the DC three the plane that was there for security.
I think those are really important questions the president hasn't fully answered.
I wanted to ask you to about defense sequestration.
Is something the president address last night and curiously he said that it's not gonna happen.
What do you make of this and the fiscal cliff looming in front of -- Seems to me that our economy is already on a precipice will it get worse.
Well you know the president signed the sequestration bill and so I thought that meant he was in favor of sequestration happening.
When he says it's not happen.
-- some pundits in Washington may agree with him.
But I don't know -- no one's come up with a legislative fixed as to how we cut the money that we do need to cut from the spending.
So I think ultimately we do have to look at military spending we do have to look at domestic welfare spending and both really have to be looked at if we're -- gonna balance a budget.
Paul thanks for coming on tonight so it's a pleasure to talk to you and Jack.
Be interesting is did -- get much reaction to these ads you'll have to let us know thank you so much sir thank.
