-- tonight it is becoming increasingly difficult to deny that the Obama presidency is very much -- and this week in particular.
Has been a typical one for an administration that.
Impermissibly coined the phrase leading from behind now make no mistake -- on the first 102 days of a second term the president has lived up to that motto.
From legislative defeats to -- political stunts these very high profile missteps have made an already unpopular president even more polarizing.
And on Tuesday ABC news correspondent Jonathan Karl asked the president if he thinks that he can shake the case of second term blues take a look.
President you're a hundred days and years seconds.
On the go until you put it seems everything into -- try to get past.
Obviously it didn't.
Colors ignored your efforts to try to get a benefit under the sequestered -- -- -- threatened to veto it got 92 Democrats in the house voted yes.
So my question do you is.
Do you still have to choose to get the rest of your agenda.
My if you put it that -- -- And then there's a good back -- all night and Galloway.
You know they.
I think it's it's a little.
As mark -- There are rumors of my demise here -- exaggerated at this point.
-- for somebody is arrogant as Obama's typical to consider the possibility that is magic may be fading and unfortunately.
If you take a closer look at the events that have transpired over the last three months the age of Obama mania appears to be coming to an abrupt end let's take a look at it step by step.
Now first he kicked off the year by failing to avoid the sequestration.
Now always working behind the scenes to make sure that each and every American is impacted by the budget cuts there's only wore a minor problem with that strategy.
Sequestration was of course his idea in the first place now simply put.
If you're looking for somebody to blame for the White House towards being canceled well call Obama.
Have you want to know who's responsible for all those airport delays across the country last week call Obama.
-- meanwhile on Capitol Hill two of the president's top legislative priorities they're now on life support.
-- first and foremost his tireless attempt to limit the Second Amendment Rights of law abiding Americans it failed and -- failed miserably.
And secondly he's been completely capable of making any sort of progress on immigration reform and of course his budget is -- on Iraq.
A rival so much for this problem.
Just to enact comprehensive immigration reform once and for all.
-- if not we can't wait morning years from out of we can't wait many of them out of we need a good.
By the end of my first service -- that -- the United States of America.
But he missed that deadline -- think he spends a little less time on vacation a little less time on the golf course over the next three years maybe could actually accomplish something.
However keep in mind that even when the president is able to implement a piece of his radical agenda.
It doesn't always work out the way he -- take for example obamacare.
Now the liberal law that has now has Democrats calling it a quote train wreck even Harry Reid under the agreement and that statement.
So as you can see from sequestration.
Gun control immigration global warming Obama care.
It's been a very tough year so far for the president but -- At least he picked Louisville to go to the final four joining me now with reaction former New Hampshire governor a good friend John Sununu former New Mexico governor Bill Richardson.
Now by any objective measured governor Sununu.
-- -- run through the global warming his budget DO way gun control nobody wants him involved in the immigration legislation.
He can't get anything accomplished.
But Sean that's exactly the same as last term except that he got Obama care and he got -- The stimulus money he got nothing else.
He does not know how to lead but what he had last term -- he constantly blame bush now we can do that.
Now that we can't do that even the liberal press.
Has to see that the emperor has no clothes.
There's a man with no experience.
And the lack of experience is hurting America today he doesn't know that you do more.
Then say I want a bill called gun good -- And that somehow it comes -- magically he's got to work.
He's work of.
Worse yet you know look at look up for example obamacare.
You have you have this race going on and in South Carolina and you have Stephen cold -- sisters in the race.
She's running as far from what Max Baucus a Democrat calls a train wreck.
Now wouldn't people's finally see Harry Reid reiterated Max Baucus -- comments we'll play later in the show today.
What I what agenda item is -- -- why won't Democrats even support his budget why won't they support among gun control.
Well let me take each each of the issues you discussed the -- Obama care more and more Republican governors are accepting the Medicaid provisions that's number one.
That is moving in the right -- -- secondly.
On sequestration what there was an agreement on the flight controllers on some of the budget cuts it was temporary.
But I think the president in his press conference laid out.
An agenda that might lead to more compromise.
On the gun issue extremely device Obama's Second Amendment supporter.
But you know the the the members of congress are home.
They're listening to their constituents may be some kind of compromise.
Will move forward -- but not that I think even being proposed.
So let me address those can I address those -- on Obama care people are discovering the three point 8% tax on their wages.
-- under the Medicare tax to pay for this.
People are discovering there's a 40% tax on some of -- health care insurance all these taxes are beginning to hit it is a train wreck.
Just because some of the governors are being bribed.
Into -- in the Medicaid.
The Medicaid package into their -- by threats of what could virtually bankrupt them if they don't accept the federal money.
Does -- mean that Obama -- is working.
But let me go into this level -- -- don't we don't control migration present job.
John you've had most of the time they should just let me.
-- that I don't.
And I didn't finish yet the president announces that title and walks away from it wears his contribution.
To the kind of give and -- that's necessary to solve a complicated thing like immigration.
Right now immigration is going in the right direction you've got a bipartisan compromise the gang abate.
Marco Rubio John McCain.
-- Chuck Schumer all segments of the party both parties.
Progressive but nobody wants -- part of -- -- -- nobody wants that everything is he's been the leader he said there hasn't already hasn't have to -- -- there has to be a more border.
Here are they -- is that I don't he's a leader.
I announcing his high horse is not imagining what is -- his bringing people live and mediating that different.
Since well that is what's happening there's a senate compromise -- is moving forward.
You just want it not to succeed I think that's the problem.
Well I know I'm all for eye getting getting the border sealed I'm all for stopping the flow of illegal immigrants into the country.
And added that requires us to make some kind of a deal on people that are already here -- the right way I'm I'm very comfortable with that in the long run.
But sealed the borders in forestall laws and don't let holder let people go just to make hay out of this requests.
Well it's moving in the right direction I don't know what your complaining about on the sequester.
Look the I probably -- a short term problem guns aren't going anywhere.
His budget -- -- three years in Iraq.
Global warming dead on arrival.
Obama care plummeting and is a disaster train wreck for 2014.
Not as sequestration.
Apocalyptic fear the -- -- What is he doing that's market.
Yeah it's out under my days.
A hundred days into the second term -- -- guys Udall well this is I don't hear you coming along the way are well.
We got a long way to go half and I think the president is doing -- -- here in -- and our kids.
On immigration reform is moving in the right direction on sequestration.
Something's gonna happen there you watch all right we got to go guys good to see you by discovering the liberal press is acknowledging the president is a loser.
Right thank you both believe that there.
