-- tonight we begin with President Obama left off earlier today and that's celebrating the many failures of the first hundred days of -- second term.
-- it all happened at a hastily called impromptu news conference early this morning.
Hello all the reporters and attendance eagerly awaited the president break some kinda news.
They were instead met -- often incoherent rambling unimpressive commander in chief and factor in the 47 minute filibuster he found time to take get this.
Only six reporter questions now here's why.
His first answer lasted more than five minutes.
As he refused to state clearly whether or not Syria had crossed that so called red line by using chemical weapons against its own people.
Science and number two was nearly five minutes of lecturing all of us -- -- Boston MA -- terror attacks.
We're not intelligence failures then came my favorite answer of the mall.
He actually had to spend eight minutes five seconds trying to explain why his second term hasn't been a complete and utter failure.
Not a pretty tough sell.
And he did not take well to be and asked about some of those potential failures.
-- listen what he said to ABC's Jonathan Karl when he asked Obama during the press conference about just some of these failures.
You is do you still have to choose to get the rest of your agenda.
My if you put it that way job.
And then there's -- our government -- home.
It's our way.
T I can help you pack Mr.
Now all jokes aside -- let's consider the state of the Obama agenda.
-- made gun control a centerpiece of a second term that was the emotional touchstone of the State of the Union Address back in February.
And yet not a single part of this legislative agenda made it out of the democratic controlled senate.
Then there's Obama's effort to once again push an agenda directed against global warming.
Something again he highlighted in his inaugural address -- that agenda has exactly zero chance of becoming law.
And as for Obama's budget while it was submitted two months late and it's dead on arrival and this is after all a president whose last two budgets -- zero.
Zero votes from Democrats -- either the house of the senate.
-- this budget will simply continue that trend a failure it's simply not gonna be taken seriously.
And let's not forget the disastrous way Obama sequestration.
Strategy played out how Obama if you were -- portrayed these sequester cuts is becoming of the apocalypse.
Then the sequester came.
And America yawned and last but not least the famed Obama care when asked about his health care proposal.
Well let's just say its implementation.
Does not exactly sound all that promising -- that's.
It's still a big undertaking and what we're doing is making sure that every single day.
We are constantly trying to hit our marks so that there will be in place and and last -- -- -- Even if we do everything perfectly -- -- You know glitches and bumps and there'll be stories that can be written that this is all of -- things.
Not working the way it's supposed to and this happened in that have to mess for much true every.
Government program that's ever been set up.
President Obama cares implementation is to quote democratic senator Max Baucus it's a train wreck it here's a prediction.
He disastrous effects of obamacare will be huge and hugely negative factor for Democrats in the 2014 mid term elections but.
Getting back to the minutes of the press conference as Obama moved to finish his time at the podium.
Guess what he closed with an eighteen minute monologue marathon where we learned that he still believes -- get -- needs to be closed.
Not exactly a news flash considering they -- to do that on his first full day in office job well done Mr.
-- -- mission accomplished.
Joining me now with reactions today's riveting news conference author columnist Pat Buchanan democratic strategist Fox News contributor Joseph Trippi.
-- I -- -- check off all of these Patrick.
I don't see a lot of success here or potential.
You know I was gonna -- off of our -- -- four out of those five that you did and I would add to.
Immigration I think after Boston.
I think the president's gonna get some -- border security.
I think amnesty is dead when you're gonna give that to twelve million people.
And included in them as folks like this are not house so I don't think he's gonna get that unfortunately for our country Iraq seems to be coming apart.
The Syrian war is disintegrating.
And you take a look at Afghanistan and is not terribly hopeful I think the country's got problem but I think Sean.
You are right this president is facing.
Basically what he must see it's just stacked deck I don't see what he gets.
Between now and November of 2014.
And brother -- and I were talking about -- agreement.
-- -- -- -- -- His gun agenda dead on arrival didn't happen because the Democrats.
Then of course we have with the president zero chances global warming agenda you agree with that right right -- -- I don't agree with you on the gun control thing I don't -- this happened that.
They didn't know he didn't get anything but it wasn't just Democrats Republicans were gonna filibuster.
I don't know where I was at the red state Democrats -- support them -- Well three year for wearing red state there are important reds -- Democrat what I need sixty votes in the senate to get it done because of Republicans -- every -- that it -- you need everything plus 45 Republicans are -- clearly isn't gonna happen.
Yeah I finally pat -- -- -- -- -- home.
He's not going to get gun control this is.
No I mean your bottom bottom line -- -- right -- they're not that your I think he hit and I think.
That's what we're gonna end up running between now and 2014.
Is nothing he is gonna get done.
The parties didn't get together after this after the election and 2014.
Will be a fight about whether he didn't get anything done or whether the report.
It is -- -- -- -- -- nonetheless his budget dead on arrival dozens everybody's at a three budgets in -- -- He can't get one Democrat to support -- -- -- Shawn he is not gonna get ten cents in new taxes out of that Republican House which means just what you said is correct.
His budget is dead the big budget deal is dead the best -- gonna get -- cobble some little thing together.
Yet no against him shot just to be clear the only part I disagree eighty about it that somehow this is -- -- 'cause he can't get enough Democrats he can't get enough of either party.
With that woman who is that it's they have I don't want to -- -- Maybe it's because he's a demagogue and maybe please stop saying like in the case of the -- maybe the demagogue should stop saying that the world is coming to an end.
What we're gonna spend more money this year than last year.
Maybe you should stop -- Republicans won dirty air and water and hate grandmothers and wanna kill woman stabbed them in shoot them and -- all over the cliff may -- the demagogue isn't working.
I think del waters flown out of the broad broad -- thing is that there is a long long time ago pat -- Our Jeanne let me ask yeah -- did -- not read it terrible and did not make a terrible mistake by issuing the Red Line in game changer this Syrians do this.
An -- to back off it now I don't think he's got the authority to attack Damascus congress had an authorized war.
But why -- what president -- face guard there and threatened war great question doesn't have the power and -- Then we're -- -- doesn't -- wants to do not.
Know we're I think he said Dave we want to be sure before he does that they've crossed the -- while we're going to evaluate intelligence agencies confirm that our government is confirmed he had shot to shot perfectly.
Yeah I remember about weapons of mass destruction that we waited -- -- never -- tell -- -- a red line.
And they cross did pennies on didn't know any -- You mean you do not know that the Syrian government use those weapons according to the Israelis.
Allies in the -- -- -- he did it accordingly there -- weapons of mass destruction in Iraq to.
Sean what they have -- -- agree with brother -- here.
I don't think the American air force ought to go into action against Syria.
And make us de facto allies of the Muslim Brotherhood I don't know you -- group called -- notre front listen.
I agree but here's the problem.
-- president of draws red lines in the sand and has no intention of ever back and a mob.
He -- puts us on -- world stage looking tremendously weak.
And that we don't look committed and he's not somebody our allies can trust and our enemies are gonna fear that surprised -- You know that child at least gotten he's got egg all over his face on this issue no doubt about he should never done that but I do think he's better off.
Think get it -- now rather than plunge -- ahead and go on with -- ultimatum and start dropping bombs -- award the American people don't -- -- fight.
And the last inning and I thought my parents when he knows for sure what he knows for sure I think he will do what he said that's the difference here obviously everyone wants Hillary Clinton said -- -- weapons of mass destruction Ted Kennedy said it all the Democrats said it -- well -- so everybody and I didn't I didn't say it everybody won't be long jail or you were right for once.
But health care is going to be the biggest problem and -- the yeah.
-- -- -- -- It is a train wreck have just ahead I would say January 1 January 1 -- group Patrick Patrick.
Good to see -- --
