Santorum: Obama Is ‘Feckless’ And ‘Marginalized On The World Stage’ [VIDEO]

Rick Santorum blasted Barack Obama Friday calling his leadership “feckless” and ​that he is ​”marginalized on the world stage.”

Santorum complimented China’s President Xi Jinping while ridiculing Obama on the Hugh Hewitt Show insisting, “the president of China… looks like the dominant figure… the confident one, the one that is in control of the situation” while Obama is “incredibly weak [and] indecisive.”

Hugh Hewitt: And I appreciated, I think, both the first and the second debate combined for the largest extended discussion of national security issues in the history of debates, which I continue with you now. Today, amid all the noise and hoopla and the grace around the Pope, and the political shockwaves around the Speaker, the president of China went to the Rose Garden, and the president of the United States said you know, we’re going to keep an eye on you and we’re watching you. And it was impotent, Senator Santorum. It was absolutely impotent.

Rick Santorum: Yeah, well, you know, this is a president who has now been marginalized on the world stage. I mean, he’s seen as someone who’s incredibly weak, indecisive, makes statements that he doesn’t stand behind, enters into negotiations where he capitulates on every front, and is in a word, feckless. And so you have the president of China who comes in who looks like the dominant figure, and is certainly, there’s no doubt, he’s feeling it. You can see, I’ve seen some of the pictures. You can see the guy that seems like the confident one, the one that is in control of the situation, and it’s a very sad, it’s a very sad time for America to see a president who has given away so much of America’s prestige and America’s strength around the world. And that’s why it’s so important to have someone moving into office in 2017 who our enemies know and respect, and our allies know that they can trust. And one of the things I talk about on the campaign trail a lot, there a lot of good men and women running. You’re looking at we need someone who has a strong track record of standing up and opposing radical Islam and has actually led the fight on it, which I have for a dozen years, particularly on Iran, someone who has a strong relationship with our allies. Those are the things that we need to look for, and really, I would argue that we’re in a stronger position than anybody else to take that helm and lead this country.
