Nor your efforts to try to get them head on -- sequestered -- The -- -- threatened to veto it got 92 Democrats in the house voted yes.
So my question to you is.
Do you still have the juice to get the rest of your agenda.
My if you put it that -- job.
And then there's -- -- back -- and go home and go -- You know they.
I think it's it's a little.
As mark towards.
There -- rumors of my demise -- -- little exaggerated at this point.
President Obama's first 100 days press conference today we're back with the panel Charles.
Pack up and -- not a bad idea.
Look I think -- the essence of it is is that Obama.
We really writing on Election Day and he crushes the Republicans.
On the the fiscal cliff and he thinks he's the -- the Washington.
And he's got an open the road and and all of us and humans into sequester the Republicans.
Call the administration's -- And they won on that the initiation has been -- bit embarrassed and all of the elements of sequestered.
They had to caved on an air traffic control which is going to be a way to push.
Republicans into accepting tax hikes and gun control -- the -- was unable to get.
The minimal who what he wanted simply reported.
And a background checks he -- had a really too bad a couple of months I think the momentum -- of Election Day is over he's treading water right now.
He was asked Pearson about a -- stand off at gitmo basically.
The city and starvation basically by the gitmo detainees.
Take a listen I was asked.
Determined and that they would not let us close.
And despite the fact that there are a number of the folks who are currently in Guantanamo who the courts have said.
Could be returned.
To their country -- you know it's potentially a third country.
I'm gonna go back after us.
Gonna go back after this -- close Guantanamo.
And that's their term problem way past.
This is something he railed against in the campaign it's something that is a complete blemish on the United States in my opinion.
I don't quite understand why -- so helpless you know it's always somebody else's fault -- and this is not something he's been a high priority at this for some news -- -- mentioned it and he he was asked about it so.
I do think this first hundred days thing is a little arbitrary and and may be unfair to the president that he you know he hasn't -- had a great start to his second term -- at the same time.
You know I don't know and all -- his fault that the gun control stuff.
It's a little with a little bit out of his hands because I think congress is so under the sway of the NRA.
And there's still a lot of time for him to get perhaps a big deal on immigration which would be a big win for him.
-- -- clarified that the detainees are not taking meals are being force fed.
Liquids and they're being sustained there.
It is is a standoff with the the guards.
-- obamacare actually.
The president said that it is.
Going to be implemented but it could get -- And like any government program he says.
Everything won't be perfect they'll be glitches involves they'll be a lot of stories that it will be.
Bumpy along the way.
Yeah I suspect this is the kind of comment that will strike people.
Well listen to this at home as totally out of touch -- mean the president has basically asserting.
That there's no difficulty with the implementation.
Of obamacare and that those people who are either confused or are having difficulty.
The following the rules are understanding the rules have their own problems.
For the people who are actually having those problems -- I can be persuaded by the president insisting that they're not having those problems.
So I think this is an argument that's not gonna make a heck a lot of sense what was more curious and mine.
Was when the president in effect said well look 85% of Obama -- been implemented.
And we've got 15% it basically deals with these uninsured or underinsured people but if you're not Mac group.
You're not gonna have to worry about it that is complete and utter nonsense on stilts if you look at the people who are having to deal with this question right now.
It's small businesses who don't know -- if you have fifty employees or less.
Are you going to be subject it to these new regulations.
If you -- business with you or father or your mother you gonna have to split the business into these are the kind of questions -- small businesses are trying to answer every single day.
In consultation usually with a team of lawyers right now -- for the president to downplay that.
It's not an argument he can win because this is gonna get more difficult as we go along and -- -- -- was senator Max Baucus and recent testimony Democrat from Montana said the implementation was a train wreck in his -- we'll see.
