particular religious creed and don't critique your opponent. george washington drove his wife to church but stayed outside. our founding fathers were deists, had a belief in god and the here after. >> isn't that a short hands for this is a set of my beliefs? >> no, they are not. you can express your sets of releafs without saying that they come from god, come for jesus, president. that is not appropriate political dialogue. >> that's come from a surprising number of candidates, that god told them to run for president. >> i know, i know. god has better things to do than decide which candidates, as abraham lincoln once said, the question is not whose side is god on but are we on god's side? if you want to be on god's side do it privately, live your life in a godly way but don't bring religion into politics. >> allen dershowitz . the third rail panel is next. >> former gop strategist and a pat >> i wake in the morning i wait on the lord and i ask him to give me the strength to do right by our country and our people. >> ever since i was a little girl i felt the trust in god. >> our laws do not

part of the i.s.i.l. it seems george w. bush looks sage like on the landscape. >> we didn't hear that from our democratic friends, we didn't hear them applaud george bush, or were they said great job, you brought us together. >> no, that's not it. that is not the point. >> george w. bush unleashed the wars that we are coming home to roost in the country, he said we have to fight them there so we don't fight them here. that. >> what can be done to have both sides coming together. we have one side of the issues saying we need prayers, calls for greater health. donald trump is extreme. his speeches are better in german, and then the speech that gun control alone will not do it. >> the new york times and reporting didn't seem fit to refer or mention it. it was diplomacy and talks. that will not be helped by anti-islamic language. >> this is not a country. who are we talking to? who are the leaders? >> radical islam, or whatever you are calling it. >> what are you calling it? >> as a movement, it's not something that we have been against. if this mr the 1980s, and they were fighting a

cunning plan? >> i think every president we've had since george washington could easily have said don't do stupid stuff. i don't think anybody can disagree with that. the basic thing is that other countries may be rising, the chinese may work in the direction of trying to catch up with the united states. at least in one area, they aren't and the russians didn't do it under the soviet union. the chinese aren't doing it under communism which is develop a society that integrates in the outside world as a democratic, free expression society which is what -- >> do you have to be democratic to be a superpower? >> i think in terms of having the kinds of things that michael is talking about, i think you're going to have to. what i'm getting at is the united states is not declining. others may be doing better but -- and it is true that we need to be smart in terms of what our strategy is and sometimes i worry about it. i don't think we're investing enough in education or in health. not investing enough in maybe some other things like infrastructure but nevertheless the united states remain

the original - i say the original - george w. bush would be anything to do with an invasion of i.s.i.s. like wise, it's simplistic to pinpoint that as the only cause. human being, i say, is not like water, we don't all boil at 100 degrees celsius, we react differently to different stimuli. for some people, in the counter-extremism policy, you can't say there's one path into radicalization or one path out. grievance is a factor. they can be domestic or foreign policy. i add to that the role of charismatic recruiters, and the role of ideology. unfortunately liberals are comfortable talking about grievances, identity politics. we don't feel comfortable about talking about ideology, we add that there. deliberately. we have to have that. a desire to impose a version of islam over society. >> i feel strongly about it. it's a mistake, and too easy to blame what is happening with i.s.i.l. and the recruitment of westerners into the fold. on the policies of george bush, it's like saying we would have been better off if you left saddam hussein in iraq, and no one would be better off. i disagree w

that killed a u.s. citizens without process. al-maliki. he might have a pass that george bush will not get. >> there has been a realisation during the period of the bush administration into the early years of obama administration, that when you deploy conventional sources to a period of conflict, we are bound by the rules of engagement of the geneva convention, i.c.c. and others. the enemy isn't. he had to take a clandestine approach, using the c.i.a. and drone operations to achieve the degrading effect, because the problem is there. >> president obama made a lot of promises in 2008 that he was not able to keep. when he got into office and reality has a way of hitting you in the face. the world was more dangers than he gave it credit for. i think the national security agency. the c.i.a., they were agencies created at a time, in the 1950, where the world was a different place. i don't think we are up to speed as we head to another presidential... >> when the president makes promises and pronouncements, the security is none of them know. they may have to go through a anyone. >> no, t

thought. this week president obama gave a 7th and final state of the union. it began with george washington as a report card on the state of the nation. we have seen political parties inter minimum dpel with democrats and republicans sitting side-by-side. if you look at the special guests invited by members of congress, you saw great division, people that stir political arguments, the president tweaked his opponents by gun laws to leave a chair empty. not to be outdown paul ryan invited two members of the little sisters of the poor to watch the president. that's the order of catholic nuns currently suing the government over obamacare. people engaged in the debate over same sex marriage saw both sides represented. a controversial clerk kim davis, or at least a staff if you believise ignorance of the invitation. the first lady had the named plaintiff for the supreme court case who won marriage rights. both of these people were featured on tv shown in cut aways. the divide continues more than 20 democrats invited muslim guests to attend. when two members of care, the council on amer

obama is more responsible for the rise of i.s.i.l. than anyone else in the world. more than george w bush or more than the founder of the group that became i.s.i.l. >> what i've said is that his policies, the policies of in president, this administration, have not been successful. they have led to the destabilization of a number of regimes and a number of geographic areas in the middle east, in northern africa that have let the groups control territory and begin to claim that they have established a geographic caliphate >>> talking about the refugee crisis which is of remarkable proportion. you have said that there's no way to vet syrian refugees who want to come to america. james comey have said similar things. if the u.s. can't vet them they're going to be told they can't come in here. in other words, we're not letting people in who we can't vet. >> i think that is a good and a reasonable policy. if the objective is to maintain the security here in the united states. again, as people have said recently, many of these people would much rather return home. so the process here is not

killer. as george bush was. >> even if it's not donald trump many can marco rubio says if a woman is raped she should be forced to keep the baby. forcing someone like hillary clinton -- good if that were the only issue yes. but elections are it's a patch work quilt of other issues. rising to the four different campaigns, different years have a different issue matrix. if this were the only issue i'd say yes. but there are other issues that people are concerned with. a candidate that doesn't emphasize this put it out front i don't think it's going to hurt them. if you have someone like donald trump out there it's going to be damaging. >> do not emphasize i think the key, because republican candidates would like to move on. democrat candidates would like to put this back up, it's greatly for fundraising, it's also great for the story from the media side. >> lot of eye balls on it. >> it's hard to move on from these conversations but you'll see reasonable republican candidates trying to. >> you sure we're not going to be talking about this -- [simultaneous speech] >> they're facing this
