LOU DOBBS (HOST): The national left wing media is going nuts, as they always do, no matter what the president says or the way in which he says it, on the issue of maintaining a steadfast relationship with Saudi Arabia. Your thoughts.
CHRISTIAN WHITON: Yeah, you see these journalists and these others, these commentators shrieking at the president, like it's some freshman seminar in feminist literature at Smith College. I mean, this is the man who's charged with defending the United States who has to weigh very important things. What they would have him do, turn our backs on Saudi Arabia, the same way, incidentally, we turned -- Jimmy Carter turned his back on the Shah of Iran, 1979, what did we get? Oh, you know the Shah had some civil rights violations, but instead you get the Islamic Republic of Iran, huge human rights violators, huge problems for the United States even decades later. That's exactly what these people are preaching: we turn our back on Saudi Arabia, the country that spends $70 billion a year on defense, three times what Israel spends, mostly defending against Iran and what, we just open the door to the people in the Middle East, the Iranian regime? Huge problem. I mean, these people do not know what they're talking about. Thank god we have a president who will stand up, look at this, and approach it in a balanced manner and defend our country.
