For more on travel -- the growing mountain of other Obama administration scandals were joined by former Arkansas governor.
Host of Huckabee on the Fox News Channel.
Former presidential candidate and all around good guy Mike Huckabee good to have you with -- governor -- one thing about it blew -- never taken a hundred million dollar one week vacation.
And you know let's sequestration is making all the different right away this White House operate yet we can't tell you know the blue angels can't do air shows can't have White House two hours.
But Barack and Michelle's.
Excellent African adventure will go on.
And I were about as -- -- because today there.
No other real responsibly -- and since we -- -- a -- about it a bang for the -- it's a bang all right but I'm not sure -- for the -- don't you feel better -- knowing that.
Efficiency is Paramount to their minds that the way to you know what I don't understand is why anyone left to right.
Would not be outraged for the fact that the president would.
Even say look it's okay to spend this kind of money.
And talking about a bang for the buck in the world teleconference and after all NSA's got all the information anyway just dial it up you'll be able to get it anyhow.
I don't know -- that's sufficient outreach governor army I am thinking for a hundred billion you can find all the the White House and treat incurred.
A couple of weeks in and in steak dinners and some of the finest restaurants in that.
In the district differ that much -- might even be able to finance a few extra phases -- that emerging democracy thing for those nations.
Let's talk about the the NSA -- Edward -- Who has apparently.
Decided that Hong Kong is the if you will -- set the -- of democracy and fairness in the world.
And that Communist China is -- really.
Good place to put your concerns if you happen to work.
For the National Security Agency this country.
I can this get more bizarre.
No it really can't other than you had Vladimir Putin who is advising President Obama.
That he needed to be careful about being too heavy handed.
And not snooping on citizens as the -- from the KJ -- Kate KG -- heaven's -- at least telling us about.
Become law but wonderful thing about president -- he can do with a straight face well he can and he does.
But then President Obama can with a straight face tell us.
That we can trust him.
Don't worry will never use that information for anything nefarious.
Today we we do feel better about that going being so assured.
If at the same -- -- I think a very serious issue here the issue of national security.
It's civil liberties.
And the trade -- therein and this president is the guy who said five years ago.
That's a false choice as he campaigned for president.
And -- they would never happen.
To him certainly that would be a bush prepare for it looks like he -- taken this country in directions on a national.
Well here's a simple question that I think people need to recognized.
If we say we're collecting all this information because we want to stop terrorism.
Yet when a man stands up at Fort Hood Texas -- all -- Bart kills fourteen people thirteen plus an unborn child.
And the president still has yet to acknowledge that that was terrorism.
What I want to know is exactly define terrorism farm -- because if that's not terrorism if the Little Rock shooting isn't terrorism.
Then what are we collecting this data for -- And at the same time I'm watching these several of these members of congress just.
Officials military officials.
Justice department officials some of whom believe -- story and look for other reasons.
And it's as if they don't realize they're the ones -- -- 10%.
Respect reading on the part of the American people.
Trying to -- raped.
The leaders of our intelligence agencies are sitting there -- some of them with four stars on their uniforms and served this nation for their entire lives.
I don't Anderson and and suddenly we're not worried about what the cyber attacks from China were worried about data mining.
That at this point no one has demonstrated to be either -- -- or on our inappropriate.
Well I do think we need to be concerned about if the government is collecting vast amounts of information on private citizens who are not suspected of any crime.
Question is why and what are they gonna do it and it if if this were in a world where we can really trust the people in the government maybe so but after the IRS.
I think people are genuinely concerned.
That information could be used to completely dictate a presidential election suppose information could be going on every candidate.
And people -- don't say -- you're running but let me tell you some -- we found out.
I love the fact that you put that into some sort of future tense hypothetical that.
Rather than worry about the last.
If the same time.
Are again there seems to be no sense of irony that our congress is not held a very high regard to -- kind.
That we have lost sight of the assaults on this country right now there cyber attacks from China we have just watch this administration get out.
Bought outsmarted and made to work rules.
By president -- and his regime in China might just utterly obliterated that two day summit that was supposed to have -- -- one of its primary.
Our agenda items.
China's cyber attack.
My concern is not so much for the people who work any intelligence -- -- many of -- work very hard they work anonymously they don't make a lot of money they're never gonna get Richard what they do they love their country.
And they're following the orders and the policies that somebody else is set.
So I don't want excoriated them I think we need to be very respectful of people in the intelligence community but we didn't need to demand of our policy makers.
What are you collecting the data far and can you tell us that it is really necessary because that collection method didn't stop.
The shoe bomber the underwear bomber the time square bomber.
-- we have no real evidence that is stop the New York's subway are prevented a New York subway bombing.
So what did it was Alexander acknowledge that it was not an NSA.
Intercept that led to -- -- are -- -- some London police shared with the New York police.
That it had more to do with.
Human intelligence rather than -- rhythms and I.
Computer program you know I'm I'm one of those kinds of just delighted to see human intelligence work on our top of this rare occasion.
It seems you know there was a time -- -- human intelligence in this country going back to September 11.
George Tenet told me very clearly.
So -- -- five years to have a plan that's fine service that's a factor and thank goodness we have we've done that that process -- numbers always great to talk with -- pleasure to be here thank you.
