On Monday's edition of Lubbock's First News, Congressman Randy Neugebauer spoke with Chad Hasty and Rex Andrew about the latest going on in Washington.

One of the big stories in the Capitol is the attacks on Americans in the Middle East. The attacks were allegedly sparked by a film that depicted the prophet Mohammed. Neugebauer isn't buying it, however. He said that the Middle East has always been an unstable, violent region, and that they are always looking for a reason to attack us. Neugebauer also said that he was not happy with the response from the Obama administration, saying that there is no reason for us to keep apologizing to the Arab world.

"We have done nothing but befriended these countries, and the President, for some reason, has tried to be more tolerant, and I'm not sure that strategy is necessarily working for us.

Neugebauer said that the Obama administration needs to focus on protecting the U.S. citizens overseas, and is in favor of withholding American funds to these countries.

Neugerbauer also gave his thoughts on the Romney/Ryan presidential campaign. Neugebauer said that Romney really needs to focus on the message he wants to give to the American people, and to define himself and his campaign instead of letting Obama's campaign define them.
