Syndicated columnist, Fox News contributor, and best-selling author, "Things That Matter" DR. CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER dropped by the studio and talked about the 4 year anniversary of Obamacare, the missing Malaysian airplane and the crisis in Crimea. Dr. Krauthammer explained that President Putin is pausing before taking the rest of Eastern Ukraine because he will find opposition unlike the response they got in Crimea. What alarms Dr. Krauthammer more than anything else is that he doesn't learn and that his world view is totally wrong.
New York Post Columnist MICHAEL GOODWIN was on talking about the 4th anniversary of Obamacare and that more people have lost insurance than have become insured. The fact that the White House says they don't know how many people have paid into Obamacare is because they don't want to know.
Fox's Chief White House correspondent ED HENRY called in from The Hague in the Netherlands, while traveling to cover the president on his European trip, and expressed that President Obama's trip is to reinsure our allies. Ed also explained that Europeans want to make sure that what we do isn't too severe because they need Russian trade.
Energy and Enterprise Initiative Executive Director and former Congressman Bob Inglis (R-SC) talked with Brian about the importance of liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports to Ukraine and Europe. With increased exports other nations will not be held hostage by Russia and it's whims.
Fox's Chief Washington Correspondent JAMES ROSEN was on with Brian and explained how things in Crimea got violent over the weekend and that more can be expected. James also expressed his belief that Vladimir Putin is basically asserting his "sphere of influence" and daring other countries to stop him.
