2:52 am
attack since 9/11. pete, good morning to you. we heard president obama speaking yesterday, refusing still to call it radical islamic terrorism. do you think that that makes a difference or do you agree with president obama when he just says it's a political talking point? >> i don't see how we can address a problem if we can't even name the problem, and it baffles me that the president -- he has a terrific opportunity here to bring the nation together. politics is about addition, not subtraction, especially in the wake of tragedy, and instead he chooses to talk to democrats one way and republicans another, and finger wag and scold and that's not appropriate for the president after a tragedy like this. >> hillary clinton even saying she's happy to call it radical islam. what do you make of that? are democrats in trouble? they are not all in agreement on
2:53 am
how we go forth fighting terrorism. >> democrats are in trouble because of the failed policies against isis. you know, president obama famously calls them a jv squad, completely ignored them. said that it wasn't something that we needed to address and here they are influencing our own citizens to take action and kill 50 american citizens. so it's a clear problem. it's going to be a problem for hillary clinton. she's tied at the hip with this administration, so sure, they are struggling with it. >> pete, do you think that this is helping or kurt -- hurting donald trump? >> look, i think this is a perfect opportunity for donald trump to talk about what he would do specifically to make our country safer, and do it in a way that brings all americans together versus divides like the president. so far, i don't think he's been able to get that message across. it seems to be all over the map, and really this is a great
2:54 am
opportunity to show him as a leader that can bring americans together. >> pete, have you heard any politician getting it right? anyone that's talking about it in a way that really makes sense to you? >> sure. i think rick scott, governor of florida, is doing a great job. i think ben nelson, the senator from florida, as well as marco rubio. i think all three leaders in florida are doing it right and that's because they are bringing people together, not going down rabbit holes of partisan attacks. >> yeah. interesting that you mentioned florida governor rick scott from what i understand, president obama has called the mayor of orlando but has not called rick scott. >> i simply don't understand that one. the president has the time. i mean if he can lecture the country about their behavior and what they should and shouldn't be doing and lecture donald trump and throw partisan bombs, he can pick up the phone and call the governor of the state that is dealing with this horrible tragedy. >> pretty easy call to make. pete snyder, thanks for joining
