-- -- hear an awful lot about this throughout the day Joseph Trippi former advisor to several democratic presidential campaigns also a Fox News contributor.
And Joseph good morning to you thank you for your time today -- I wanna take.
Once charge first that this president is not willing.
To face up to the challenges to be bipartisan and it's essentially what you say and he also went on to say that he won't change how do you view that.
While the -- you know president Obama's now one.
Election twice for the over 51% 50% of the vote which is that you know he's the only.
He and Joseph Biden are the only are those the only two offices everybody votes for city.
The -- and he's -- he got over 50% say he's gonna make his case I think what's different with significantly different.
I think there's got to be confrontation.
But I think the first time you're seeing.
The president moved his campaign organization.
And we just saw -- the last few days move it.
Into an advocacy on the issues for his agenda during the the second term.
That's unprecedented -- no president's ever been able do that.
And this time it's not with some you know -- -- campaign organization that we've seen in the past this is the biggest campaign organization.
Ever seen in the United States 2830 million people.
Those people making the case -- -- members of congress regardless of party whether the members Democrat or Republican.
May -- I think could change -- The way we look at a lame duck -- second term presidency because of the power I had grassroots organization.
That that that that's a bit that's a big statement Joseph back to the initial question though -- what makes a heavy charge there are are there Democrats in congress.
Who agree with him.
-- look I think I think there.
Vote the way this works is you got Democrats who -- in.
More conservative districts in you know -- -- let's take gun control for for example.
Live in there -- senators from states like month Montana.
That have a different view of what we should do on guns and didn't the president does.
They're gonna make that that case and they don't want to see that confrontation on on that issue because it.
It hurts them in their reelection efforts coming up in 2014.
The same on the right with with Republicans who live in areas where -- people want something done about guns now that.
When you take what I said in the beginning where -- you put the president's campaign organization.
Into that mix in their banging on both of those sides of the of the political equation.
Does that give the president more power to get his agenda through right I think it's it may change of the way we look at the second term okay.
Now would David Plouffe is arguing is that there is common ground despite the perception on the outside it is here in Washington between.
These two parties and this president.
Where is that you know.
Well I mean you look at a -- Graham I mean that you look it the the people on both sides accept them like 92% of the American people we -- party.
Think there should be universal background checks on on -- so.
Right there is a place where the president again putting -- -- That his organization to work might be able -- make a stronger case.
Too many conservatives on the hill as well as the Democrats like pointed out live in somebody's more rural states represented them that.
That that's something that they that that they can find common ground and come to agreement on.
Or even last night the vice president Joseph Biden in his speech -- in the presence has -- for.
Gun control legislation as he turned it also look for immigration to be two of the biggest points of pushing.
Here in Washington to sort this term -- attribute thank you -- Enjoying itself.
