KT McFarland: Obama Blocked Mitt Romney From Meeting With World Leaders at UN (Video)

FOX News contributor KT McFarland told America’s Newsroom that by not meeting with foreign leaders at the United Nations this week Barack Obama has blocked Mitt Romney from meeting with the same leaders.

“Everybody is missing the point on why Obama is not meeting with these world leaders. Because in an election year it is the responsibility of the leaders to also meet with the opposition candidate. Romney has the right to meet with all of those world leaders too if Obama does. If Obama doesn’t, Romney doesn’t. And so the administration doesn’t want to get Romney in those pictures with world leaders because he’ll look presidential.”

    Were I Romney I’d go ahead and arrange meetings with Netanyahu and select other allies anyway. There is no way Obama is “blocking” Romney simply by refusing to meet with them himself.

  • Blocking how? Is this some sort of UN protocol or something? KT is a very smart woman, but this sounds a bit goofy to me.

  • Robert

    I agree with #1. Once again Romney fails to seize the opportunity.

  • JW

    Mitt can request meetings but the other leaders would turn down the request because they don’t want to be seen as influencing the election by favoring one candidate over another. Bad optics. I am sure there were some behind the scenes phone calls, however.

  • JimR

    Obama has already fumbled the globe,. Nothing else he can do but stop Romney from picking it up and running with it.

  • Agent 99

    And ppl wonder why Romney does not poll higher?? Comments such as Romney Failed to seize an oppurtunity is why….
    As for me.. I support Romney All The Way. ((And KT does know her stuff)) So why question her??
    I see this a lot…ABO ….then “Romney did not do this or that…^^^^ Fence Sitters and “fair weather friends” for Romney…huh??
    BHO is the one question..Not KT nor Romney.
    Sounding like Ed Koch “”Obama will probably win ..BUT “””I don’t trust him on Israel””

    Romney/Ryan 2012

  • Amjean

    I always wait for the “back story” and the “aha” moment. If one waits the truth surfaces.
    I think this woman is 100% right.

  • MN Jim

    If Occupy Wall Street can meet with Adimbulbajob, why cannot Romney meet with world leaders?
    I will vote for anyone but obama, but I really wish Romney would get out there and attack just a tiny bit. I haven’t seen much from Romney, who should be on the news every night with a major speech.
    obama is screwing up badly every day, and the media continues to cover for him. It will take an attack dog to get in the news and set things straight. All I hear is 47%, Romney gaffs, etc. when obama has the whole mid east on fire, the economy in shambles, jobs lost, world hates us, US is weak and hands tied on the battlefield, etc.

  • At least Romney attempted to meet with World Leaders, unlike O who choose to go on the View to have his big ego stroke…….

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    …by not meeting with foreign leaders at the United Nations this week Barack Obama has blocked Mitt Romney from meeting with the same leaders.

    What exactly is stopping him?

  • Patty

    Oh, is that how that works. So, Romney going to Israel was a great idea, not that he could predict this would happen, (no publicity or pictures) with leaders.

    There are advantages for being president, oh, as I said that, I am laughing. Obama has been one lucky guy, bias media, campaign that cover ups and btw, even though Obama blocked Romney, as Mcfarland said, Obama has shot himself in the foot so often when around world leaders that it is doubtful with all that has transpired he will make a World of differences.

    kt is brilliant

  • American Woman

    Seriously, the “World Leaders” at the UN are the people from the Islamic hellholes. They are the ones working to limit our freedom of speech. The West and Hillary Clinton and Susan Rice have given them control (thanks to Obama).

    When Romney becomes POTUS he needs to put the West back in power at the UN or throw the parasites in the UN out of our country and rent out the property.

  • Chris Light

    I have to agree with KT. I think there are some election campaign rules regarding this issue, and Obama is blocking him in this way. Obama doesn’t want to speak with these foreign leaders for two reasons. First, he will have to take a stand for or against certain issues and countries that he would rather not emphasize before the election. Second,ly preventing Romney from meeting with allies like Netanyahu would prevent him from gaining photo ops that would benefit Romney by receiving “visual”, non-verbal support from Netanyahu and so forth.

  • Tom63010

    Mitt Romney would be skewered by the press if he was to perform an endaround Obama and meet with any of the other World Leaders. I believe K T may know a lot more about protocol than people making comments on The Gateway Pundit’s blog.

  • Sparky

    What garbage! Romney can meet with whomever her chooses, just as Palin met with Netanyahu in Israel.

    Romney just needs to grow a pair instead of coming across as a total pansy.

  • Agent 99

    Where is Romney??
    As TERRY GAIN noted:
    No One is Covering Romney’s Speech
    But Michelle Malkin did. ((It is a great speech))

    Don’t see why that’s a problem, as Obie’s been doing all sorts of end-arounds via executive order. Stick it to him for once.

  • Katielee

    Huh! Didn’t know that. Protocol ( which is important in public and international relations, and very important in many culture’s– bypassing it could be a tremendous faux pas, then ) and procedure…something Obama eschews, until he can use it to his benefit against his ‘enemies’. And put Romney in a corner.
    Visiting world leaders in this context could be a breech in protocol, that visiting them otherwise is not. Could be very sensitive, but one I’m going to guess other world leader’s are aware of, savvy, and if this is correct, know what Obama may be playing.

  • BridgetGB

    Bobama is a jealous tyrant

  • Amash

    If this is true, and I’m sure it is, this boy president is beyond childish. His only concern is winning an election he doesn’t deserve and ruin this country even more. He thinks the world revolves around him. Of course, the media worships him and plays into his unfounded high opinion of himself. Then we have Moshell. This woman believes she should be able to use our money for anything she pleases. They both need to be evicted from OUR White House in January if this country is to survive.

    Romney will have plenty of time to hobnob with world leaders after January of 2013.

  • Thelma

    I’ve noticed that a few people have commented that Romney should do this or that. Sometimes I feel the same way, but I just don’t think he’s that kind of a man. I saw him on an interview a few days ago where the interviewer was asking him what was he gonna do to turn his campaign around? Romney’s response was “he does not need to turn it around, he’s comfortable with what is going on.” I keep hoping and praying that his current approach will work well.

    Agreed.. I think this is one of those where Romney _can’t_ meet with foreign leaders in any diplomatic regards unless Obama does so first.

    Mitt Romney would be skewered by the press

    And that’s any different from normal how? I’m thinking Mitt should have the meeting anyway… but he’s too principled in that regard to do so.

  • Baby Dress

    WHY must we endure new casts given by “Baby Dress – clad” women ?

  • Ray

    Y’all need to understand the polls are wrong, the media are in the tank with this moron, to
    Romney IS leading. Put on your thinking cap, remember 2010 election? Well? The turnout WILL favor Romney. Chill and vote! Show up, we’ll get this. Bastard out of office in November !!

    Of course Obama wouldn’t want Mitt Romney to meet with World Leaders at the UN. After all, the World Leaders might just compare brains! And after Obama invites the World Leaders to visit all our “57 states”, well…need I say more?

    I can understand world leaders being afraid that if they meet with Romney, and Obummer wins (God help us), that because he has such a fragile ego, he would possibly take that in a personal way, and snub them, or be less than helpful, at best. The US still has a little clout, and they have to be careful about not publicly offending someone who holds the purse strings. Everyone, that is, but Obummer, …..as long as they are not Muslims, he doesn’t care who he offends.
