7:12 am
day and it resonates. >> but why can't you have more res nonsense from telling the jeb bush story? what is the problem with talking about it? >> it's not the problem. you go into the super tuesday states and we are building an organization in all of those places. i feel pretty confident where we are right now. >> you know, during the democratic debate, bernie sanders said the american people are sick and tired of your damn e-mails to hillary clinton. are you sick and tired of donald trump? he seems to be getting all of the attention in the race and all of the other candidates are saying, look, we are over here, we have something to say. how are you and your team dealing with the donald trump candidacy? >> first, i admire the fact he is a little politically incorrect. i think we are uptight as a nation and admired that he doesn't feel embarrassed by his wealth. what else do i admire about him? let me think. i'm running out of things. he has a great family. >> is it frustrating -- >> now that i got that out of the way.
7:13 am
look. ultimately people want to know who is going to sit behind the big desk and who is going to be making decisions that impact millions and millions of americans. are we going to be safe? are we going to create a climate where people can rise up to? >> is there anything about donald trump think we may not be safe and you would be worried if he was there? >> i have no idea. if he talks how putin ought to take care of isis and the week before, isis ought to take care of assad. these are serious times. i think you need a person who has the temperament when the leadership skills to fix the things that are broken and do it with passion and conviction but also have the skills to lead. over the long haul, i think that -- that is the lane i'm going to stay in and i believe i'm going to be effective at doing it. i don't know about donald trump's views of leadership because he talks about himself the whole time, rather than what he would do. >> governor, i want to ask you a couple of those policy serious questions. first you talked about being your own man.
7:14 am
do you see your brother george w. bush coming out on the campaign trail for you? >> i don't know. i don't know. he has been helpful raising money for me and giving me advice and the last republican to have been elected and the one before that. he is the one guy that i rely on, you know, the ebbing and flowing of politics because it's pretty wild and he has done it. >> let me talk to you about afghanistan the front page of the papers today. president obama leaves office in 15 months and essentially saying the drawdown will be left to his successor. you said obama is short changing our military commanders so how many american troops would you leave in the ground in afghanistan? >> i would take the recommendation of the general that was responsible for it who is now the chairman of the joint chiefs. 10,000 troops or 9,800 troops i think the is proper place to be. >> do you agree with president obama? >> you need a time line. when you create a time line your enemies are organizing for waiting you out and thank you is
7:15 am
the proper thing to do. situations has changed and i think the president has made the right decision to keep troops on the ground and it looks politically and cut it in half and off we go. you're right the drawdown will take place in 2017 and the next president will make a decision based on a long-term strategy. we have none in the middle east and we are react to go events and it looks pretty ugly. >> speaking of that. at what point do you think the president has to react more and how to the russia's increasing presentation presence in syria? >> i should have earlier because that void now is filled. we see even cuban generals in syria. we see the iranians. >> what should he do? >> i think we need to create safe zones to have a safe harbor for refuges and allow u.s. to rebuild the remnants of the syrian free army and we need to engage the arab world to provide support for a unified effort and we need to have no fly zones.
7:16 am
the argument well will get into the conflicts with russia. maybe russia shouldn't want to be in conflict with us. i mean, this is a place where american leadership is desperately needed. russia is there to prop up assad. we are there to deal with both assad and isis. and we should -- we should garner the support of europe in the middle east countries to do just that. >> all right. your advice to joe biden this morning is what? >> continue to speak korean as effectively as he does. >> thank you. thank you for joining us today. this morning, escalating violence in israeli has many people living in fear. protesters are clashing with demonstrators. palestinians threw bombs at another site and some believe is the tomb of joseph in the west bank. smoke and fired poured from the stone structure. johnathan vigliotti is at the temple mountain in jerusalem are security forces are preventing some worshipers from entering.
