John McCain: Never Seen World in So Much Turmoil

Sen. John McCain says he has never seen the world in as much turmoil as it is today, and that President Barack Obama is naive in not understanding the U.S. leadership role.

"I think he's having great difficulty in his presidency," the Arizona Republican said Wednesday on Fox News Channel's "The O'Reilly Factor."

Obama is doing nothing, McCain argued, as the Middle East sees strife in Iraq, Syria and Israel, and he has refused to visit the Mexican border as thousands of children have flooded across it. At the very least, McCain said, the president could visit with overtaxed border workers and thank them for the job they are doing.

"I have never . . . imagined there would be such a lack of American leadership," McCain told host Bill O'Reilly, "and the consequences are horrendous."

O'Reilly opened his show accusing Obama of "socializing" as the humanitarian crisis boils over on the border. He showed video of Obama shooting pool in Colorado even though he said in a Wednesday speech that he didn't want to turn the crisis into a "photo-op" by visiting the border.

"In a calm time there would be nothing wrong with that," O'Reilly said, "but this is far from a calm time."
