economic issue and that is china. romney has been hitting china hard since the beginning of the campaign. the president hasn't said anything. and when i travel through battleground states, you hear people talking about china more than you hear them talking about afghanistan. chris: what's the cutting edge of china to the average person? >> they're eating our lunch is what -- that may or may not be true. and manufacturing jobs are coming back but people think we're falling behind china. they want to hear what the president has to say about this economic situation. and he hasn't talked about it. >> the other area i think foreign policy does count is how it reflects on the president's character. you inoculated the president against the charge that he might be weak or a bit of a wimp in some way. i think the actions he took against bin laden and the reminder of his actions this week would have given him the character of advantage on that particular subject. chris: let me go back to how i think romney's going to do it. the romney camp revere ronald reagan especially because he brough

got back from liberia and i was struck by the battle between united states and china. it's the larger fight for africa that is ongoing between america and china. but there america and china are fighting over who is going to supply the country's electricity. there is none throughout the country. things have been sort of stuck as these two superpowers battled it out. who wins will say something about where africa is going. >> there is actually an obvious solution that's looming on iran. that's something called nuclear latency. the iranian regime will prove to the world that they have the capacity to make a bomb and the ability to do so quite quickly, but will not go the next route and the question will be how tough an inspections reyeem they will agree to in order to reassure us that's the case. they will move to demand the united states, if they're not going to have a nuclear weapon, move against israel and that will be interesting. chris: this week's big question, the president is getting closer to formally announcing his afghanistan plan. the question, who will be angry aseads the ne

through russia and china so it's not as easy as president obama to hit iran. he has to hit russia and china and that's what he doesn't want to do. >> the big thing he has not done, the trigger they haven't pulled is cutting off the central bank. england has done it. others have done it. the state department said this week that they aren't doing it because of the energy situation. the senate is pressuring them with legislation to do it now. >> it's actually pretty complex because it's not just a question russia and china. if he were to cut off central bank, he could create problems with the export of oil, say, to japan, and japan needs the oil right now. you could look at quite a big disruption to global energy markets. >> and a spike in energy prices here. >> absolutely. in addition, the iranian regime is not monolithic right now at all. mahmoud ahmadinejad has many challenges inside the regime and they don't want to box people into a corner and inflame anti-american tendencies. >> how much pressure is there on president obama to do something? >> there's real fear that with american t

huntsman. >> he was pro civil unions and worked fo' years for president obama as ambassador to china and said we have to have someone who can unify the country and i know about china better than anyone else who is stealing american jobs. i know how to get back and fix that problem. and put more jobs -- >> and back to china this week, $3.4 million house, that's a neighborhood you -- that's not a neighborhood you run for president from. >> huntsman's other weakness is he's been pro cap and trade. and that's a bit like obamacare for the republican base. this is another of those socialist issues, that can be a policy litmus test. and i think that if he decides to try and find some way to flip-flop his way out of cap and trade, or a civil union, that could be a character -- chris: who climbs to the top? >> if i said tim pawlenty can fix his flaws because his main one is he's so boring to anyone -- to everyone. set his coat on fire and he's in good shape. >> i think john huntsman. >> huntsman. >> i don't know. i give up. i'm sorry. chris: before we break, commencement time. 1.5 million college

countries which brings us to our big question this week. is that passimism or realism? >> china has money. that's what people think is a great country because they're not bankrupt. >> i think it's both pessimism and realism because these kids can't find jobs. i conducted a quick survey and asked my son who falls within this demographic and he said it's cable tv's fault. my generation has never turned on the tv and not heard that everything is gloom and doom and going to hell in a hand basket. chris: will it him to watch "hardball." >> i think it's pessimism. and i think it's because of china. the polls i look at show who's going to be economically dominant in the next decade, everybody says china. >> it's always because kids are better educated and they travel more, they all study abroad. number two, the internet is global. they see the reality elsewhere around the world for better or worse and it's the economics as jim says. they're being realistic. disturb anybody. thanks to you all, jim cramer, cnbc debate wednesday night. kathleen parker, gloria borger and howard fineman. thank you, a

china? what if the globalized economy -- what if the advantages the u.s. historically had has disappeared? what if this is really grim? chris: on that note, before we go to break, let me recall a time when politics was fun. back in 1982 on the first day ronald reagan's tax cuts took effect republicans faced a good photo-op on the washington mall. they went out and had someone bake gigantic apple pie 17 feet in diameter. the idea was to have someone go out there and slice up that pie to a long line of young republican activists. well, at the time i was working for democratic house speaker tip o'neill. when i heard about that pie stunt coming, i put a call out to my friend mitch snyder, very aggressive activist for the homeless. i just gave him a heads up on what the reagan people had planned. take a look at how it all played out on the evening news that night. >> the washington monument grounds today, the american conservative union and senate republicans staged a media event to celebrate the first day of the reagan tax cut. things did not turn out quite as planned. henry king

countries, china is one of the examples they throw out. so if it's something that people will get beyond, we seem, and to see in the public polling that people will trade some privacy for greater security, but i think there is a critical mass that's coming. at least on capitol hill. where people are saying we needed to know more. we're now learning more. and while there may be some tweaks to these programs, they think by and large -- chris: knowing what's going on. my question is the president, different from a pundit or any of us, if something goes wrong he has to bear responsibility for not having done something he could have done technologically. >> i think you're right. barack obama comes into office. he's a liberal. he's not a big -- pro-surveillance hawk. and every morning he gets a threat briefing. and he knows that his first job is to protect the american people against what are really scary attacks. for me, the clearest sign that these programs are powerful is the fact that osama bin laden, hid in plain sight for five years for one reason. he went silent. he left no digital foot

president. he struck a lot of conciliatory notes when he was china. japan and the united states don't want that story line. they push back a lot on that. they are a little bit skidish about that storyline. that's not one that they want to see out there. chris: that's funny. they wanted to be the country that's part or the world again. >> right? >> absolutely. and there is a difference between the obama policy and the bush policy. they don't want to lose that america should lead the world. we set the agenda. if obama loses that and we saw it late last year when he accepted the noble prize, that fed into the storyline that he doesn't necessarily believe in american exceptionalism. it's more that i want to be president of the world. it's a very effective one. and i don't think -- i think that's a constant in american politic, people want the president to believe in america exceptionalism. chris: what do you think that this president is tilting to the world? >> i'm always amazed by people's warmth towards me. at the the same time having a president who grew up in indonesia. this was alway

promising a trade war with china, taking on russia as america's most dangerous foe? it has the tone being to try to put daylight between himself and a president who is strong on national security issues because he doesn't have a strong position on foreign policy. chris: so who is he listening to? is it ideologues of press attack types or who is it? >> the folks at the highest level of the romney campaign said the governor drove a lot of this. with consultations with john bolton and richard williamson and former state department officials. chris: which comes out of his book. >> the governor saw this as an opening for himself. and in part drove this message and collaborated then with his staff. it wasn't something brought to him and hey, governor, here's an idea. why don't you jump into this? he initiated it within the campaign i'm told. the obama campaign and the president remember not only romney's very different positions on libya as that was developing. you about also when they were negotiating for the release of the chinese dissident gen wajiang. while negotiations were going on
