Morning I'm Doug -- on here with my.
Friends and colleagues -- a gallon.
John Mobley -- we are political insiders.
We take you behind the headlines we tell you why things are happening what it means and what's likely to be the result the only program on cable or.
I dare -- broadcast.
And certainly the web where real political professionals.
Tell you the engaged audience.
What why and when things are gonna happen.
We -- breaking news to start this morning.
The PPP poll -- -- recollect correctly has Mark Sanford in South Carolina one special election tomorrow.
One point ahead of Colbert the bush Elizabeth Colbert bush the younger sister of Steven Cole where.
Pat you live in the district you followed the campaign what's happening.
Well first thing is two things in there that are really important first ball she was ahead by nine points in that poll will win last fall -- Last week because -- been conventional.
One of the things it's happening is.
That and we talked about this the makeup of the electorate in the polls people -- student voting.
Was far more democratic in the last poll it's now much more Romney voters than the wires that happen because Republicans are returning to the poll.
She has been under attack by Stanford not by the parties parties pretty much deserted him.
But the -- look it's a concern to issue -- -- about Pelosi about money.
-- in the in the -- sought support.
She there's a lot of dirty there's a lot of other stuff going on the district but what it is is Republicans holding their nose.
And coming back weather will be enough.
No doubt she does have a ground game.
For turnout they've been working on he really does not have won but it's a very simple matter are Republicans.
Who really don't like Sanford to put Republican women are not on the amount to vote remember this is an 18%.
Romney victories district the -- radius -- thirty on even those same production ever mention Obama.
But it would all the health care all the stuff going on -- -- question whether they're gonna come out and she's being in the district -- -- pretty liberal.
That's they've succeed and how do you -- well I'm not there pats -- pat has described -- seeing Sanford three Monday nights ago and he was flat and delivered a flat.
Performance that night I feel in these races the passion differential decides who's gonna win which side wants it more.
And I don't know what I gather I think there's more -- still behind her pen and against him then there is for and against her -- John what's your prediction I think -- Greece and out by a point.
So I I think she'll probably win but he could go -- go -- now what do you think yeah man might take is and I agree with your analysis.
My sense is it is such an overwhelmingly.
If they're able to get even -- to a quarter of their base vote out right.
He will win well -- collecting has been nationalized in the race so which device at all along with sticky.
Yes you get into that he and VoIP -- -- -- I think it's pick from right now but you know well we will we will update you.
-- next week or on Sunday.
Depending on the results and what we will speak to is what are the implications if any for -- you know -- He loses tomorrow about Doug -- we -- -- says before happen.
It could be that all the attention on this race came two weeks too early for her -- in effect will peaked a little early.
Everyone woke up down there are some almighty god we're gonna lose this -- of -- -- from Europe Europe's right time the other the other thing -- but let's not forget.
Even if this is close -- to discourage it -- -- a victory for her -- let's say it's their proposal -- part about whether or not she wins.
This is a district no Democrat should be believable is this to me and lose their -- message.
This says that the Democrats are now.
Potential and I -- Potentially competitive.
Today we're hardcore Republican.
District showing what we've been talking about.
Are -- -- here for sometime now.
The absolute weakness.
Of the Republican Party apps in you know what if this was two months ago and we -- started this from -- and said all that race is gonna end up being like a dead heat.
We're -- -- about it or disaster for Republicans and a great time for Democrats so because she has been ahead at one point we shouldn't underestimate.
Young and now -- I don't I think it's more anti him.
Thought the GO pay him in the Republican Party in South Carolina State GOP's lack of enthusiasts -- -- part of what is it because it.
Moore is a -- -- going to pull themselves together in contrast to the democrats' ability.
To really get in there and work together I think they cleared the field.
They got so that she was you'd have to face a millionaire Democrat.
Republicans didn't try to get somebody to -- in the run off -- -- so they're left with this guy who look he's got problems if he's being -- it.
But but you know the Republican establishment has come out of the end in South Carolina and.
And that is -- it is clearly you know see Mara let me go fight and to this side of President Obama act the press conference earlier last week.
Where he was asked by Jonathan Karl of ABC news whether he had any -- slept less levels relative at a club on it.
Do you still have been.
You can -- to get the rest of your agenda -- My if you put that which.
And then there's this back up and go home and go away.
Pat what do you make of that.
Well it's the kind of question you don't want to -- like old dodge and that's kind of funny.
The fact it's -- yes it's a problem -- who has an interest in press conference.
Pretty -- -- who has no press conferences he had nothing really to announce which sort of opens him up.
I mean there was no opening stage was a hundred day anniversary first hundred days what what you don't what you people skip those -- -- -- it's.
But I that was he's never gonna press conference -- Scott said that wasn't the only weird thing he said.
You know -- what what I consider we are off track he.
He was you know he -- it was fast he is he's had these for several days where you -- health care obamacare.
As a few bombs but basically already people or or or in Nirvana -- -- at a time when it's coming apart.
He was you know he was he got into the plan -- -- -- I just thought it was.
-- and an insult radicalization of Muslims and I'm glad Jonathan Karl asked the question we haven't seen this kind of question of this president till now and that's not that's up for questions now but why would you ask -- unless you sensed what we said amongst the three of us on TV yesterday it's not just an administration adrift.
He is a true Christian which should look -- it there's no passion coming out of -- say they do is any.
-- there was no agenda item I heard from the press conference.
That broke through I mean yes there's immigration guns all of that.
But ultimately you don't have a sense as to what the president is staking his name and reputation.
You would think when asked that -- -- a look at the guys said I have no Jews are you kidding me on spending four hours this afternoon.
With these three senators trying to get -- -- vote for this and I'm doing that.
And really take it and flip it and show that he's got a lot of Jews of course but the truth those.
This is a guy Jews for one thing.
He got himself reelected it's over he's reelected he's going in the history books.
I don't think that guy is into the job the way he should make the way he would be if he -- -- running in -- look at look what's on the.
On the Specter you have what's happening in Syria where -- from the Red Line in the sand which -- -- faded disappeared apparently.
In -- we need custody the Israelis for a few days apparently now having to pick up our marbles.
To do to -- -- something on the chemical weapons.
The president has gotten random things going on right now -- and all of this disaster in the Middle East.
The presence god and an economy that's still suffering.
Were more people were today the story about income for workers is down whatever we have much -- to.
And what is the president doing he's -- he's going to Planned Parenthood.
First person to go never mentions the -- know situation -- put an end or abortions but it's an odd thing for him do it's it's kind of what you said any.
Clears his schedule to make the most important phone called for week not to pollute and not to the Chinese Government.
Right now he's a senators know not just senators on immigration and or on good background checks not up we clear the schedule.
To call a gay basketball player a journeyman basketball player who's come out of the closet.
You can and then and congratulate -- then then announce it from the press.
Press room a huge is an important thing I'm going on you -- what are you doing this is a man who on the night of the -- Couldn't call anybody.
The much -- call senators and congressman -- -- It is like he has this image now -- out and Ohio -- game he went to Ohio and gave basically use campaign speech from 2012 I got a did -- yesterday.
Which uses an Ohio State's graduation you know which is my agenda for that.
Of whatever of -- none none none of which is happening.
But there is and you said this yesterday dog that we should speak to you look at those polls in the New York Times on specific -- -- -- -- Let's get those polls up from the New York Times.
We can we've -- The and I've -- look at that -- -- his initiatives.
And look at the deficit one.
The deficit -- we didn't emphasize yesterday too much but it bears some focus here.
13 approve of his handling of the deficit.
Gun policy which he states an enormous amount on 41 well all now want.
That what did you told media today the public.
Favors this thing that -- ninety percentage you have the -- public favoring.
Gun control by 90%.
Immigration the fact have -- plan by eighty to 85%.
-- the president has got decidedly negative numbers.
Bottom line people have lost confidence.
He had his ability to solve problems could be a leader -- lose the leadership in the use the issue that if the Republicans have been Smart.
Once the issue in 2012.
That whatever you like about him he doesn't he's not an effective leader.
And they and they both of course it did nothing he can't run a guy against Obama was not a leader either and a mom had some problem or are Republicans -- regardless whether or not they are totally legal us find me anybody.
Who speaks for the Republican Party who's connecting at all -- all over the map.
And look at the issues they have and parliament and let me just stop and say you know I feel like.
That it will look social conservatives -- that some of the issues that get up there are very harmful.
But you have this issue on the plane.
Which is -- parents accused -- that now.
Any girl at any age can go into the drugstore and all the -- get a morning after pill.
But Obama's tried to do added eighteen -- Justice Department assuming he's had all this is based on scientific evidence the FDA.
It would it would amazes me about abuse is that the Republicans this is a big issue most even many people who are.
Pro choice and Democrats.
Think parental ability in the eye can solve -- you can't -- cigarette and eighteen in the Bloomberg would like to do your your -- want to I want.
In New York you can't.
Get a tattoo that -- -- mission.
But -- eleven or twelve -- fourteen year old girl.
Can -- win.
Without any consequences no doctor no prescription no nothing with that they're doing that they've uproar right so -- -- -- -- of it right when we come back.
With John and -- will be talking about the implementation.
Of obamacare so please stay right -- this.
Good morning again I'm Doug -- with pat.
-- on John overlay and we're back political insiders we're gonna talk about two subjects -- that time we have remaining.
This morning first -- gonna open up on.
The implementation of obamacare and to that end up like -- put up the pew.
Our poll on favor or oppose financial advisor hi sorry and I apologize yes it is it's 35 favor forty oppose.
-- -- no opinion pat what do you make.
Of course is -- lowest numbers they've had remember this Kaiser.
Has been built around promoting obamacare.
And telling trying to show the American people really want to.
The American public doesn't want it and what's happening is it's blowing up I mean it's coming apart.
You had Max Baucus who's one of the principal writers.
Of the -- say it was.
Train -- Last week Harry Reid.
The majority leader said.
All baucus is right you -- -- -- train wrecks and we need to spend more money and take money from other programs to put into this thing to get it going to get it going.
The country's discovering the impact on the drag on the economy.
People everything that has been said and here's an example of what I think it's important.
When the president signed the bill he promises it or was -- -- the end of my first term in this thing is is passed law.
Premiums will go down twenty -- -- the averaged 4500 dollars.
Or more for people instead -- -- average up 3000 so what's costing more people are not getting what they want.
And I think that the problem use that.
-- he's -- trailer in whereas if we announced seven feet that's twenty some thousand regulations and more every day.
It's not -- they can get the exchanges up.
And so let's let's let's get into the politics of -- if this is the train wreck and it's a democratic bill Republicans opposed to unanimously.
To their credit.
Now they need to seize this oncoming train wreck and ride it to victory in 24 team that questions.
Did a today recognize that it it's doable thing in recognizing twentieth twelve and I think generally I -- either -- great Canada -- actually -- -- -- -- from the grassroots.
Which -- Tea Party.
But the Republican Party didn't really do know in 2012.
And we did on the show many times and I particularly argued.
Why it was an important issue -- -- in the exit poll but a majority of people in an election they want to repeal and Holbrooke.
The Republican strategy though is insane mainly it's pitching did it's it's mindless.
-- they may get up there and they keep producing these repeal bills.
They're just gestures.
I thought that ten crews have the right -- and I -- would introduce -- every other week which is postpone this thing.
-- the economy is -- and until we know we're doing.
Which would have the same effect but Democrats are going to be panic about this what you have to have because that narrative every day.
This says this is the latest outrage and this is novel we were promised Mr.
President you know right does -- mean.
It is and they have a little bit but they have not done -- they've not engaged and they've not really taken.
The full benefit of the issue the other issue which is coming to the -- this week I think.
Darrell ice is holding hearings that if I'm correct on Wednesday.
Is the whole issue -- -- -- Should we have a select committee pat.
Yeah I absolutely -- this loses big.
We have four dead Americans and what we now know.
And we will hear Winston is all of the stories he narrative of the administration put out that night and beyond what the missing present.
Is all a tissue of -- hate to say there's applause.
Of -- in an election in an election of an election six weeks away that's what they were doing.
It turns out quite a wedding of one of the groups that they have hired to help security was an al-Qaeda related I grew out -- -- We have the guy who's number two abuse saying we all that was an attack from the beginning send -- to -- the -- but more importantly.
We've seen to help beat the house.
Republican conference yes that's partisan but they did put out.
-- and Steve Hayes of the weekly standard pulled out.
The interest being -- about the video about the talking points.
The CIA talking points never ever said it was about a video and seven demonstration they said al-Qaeda to begin.
The national security deputy national security partner Tom -- -- -- Who is Obama's lead writer -- on pro Muslim outrage.
Takes out all that stuff.
We still don't know how we got to be video.
And what is gonna happen is these three people to -- and not spoken.
Are gonna cause of the -- question -- only if you're serious and I passed via select committee.
And so far Boehner has resisted.
What I think he's done what's your take -- at all.
Actor I mean I think the Smart politics of it.
Without even having to look partisan because we issued the the House Republican Conference two weeks -- issued -- in -- -- report criticizing Hillary.
For turning down.
Requests repeated requests for more security you could say that's political because it's the Republican conference criticizing a democratic secretary of state.
But if you have a select committee you have Democrats on the committee have a minority counsel and a majority counsel they get to sort of weigh in equally.
-- it's inevitable they gonna have to have the -- Let me -- -- big cities take what they want to make regular.
-- -- here's what he's got here is something to think about.
Nixon tried to cover of Watergate he resides.
Bill Clinton tried to cover up Monica gate.
He be canning Susan -- is the democratic standard where Obama tried and is still trying to cover up.
But got -- he got reelected Hillary Clinton may become the next president as secretary of state for Americans died.
On her watch she got a headache to cover it up.
My question is is this lowering the bar for president or is -- the true meaning.
A fundamental change you can believe it but at -- a very good -- -- obliterate them.
Served -- game over the good luck look what I think really -- happened to do as I have been god I'm back on the front burner is the Boston Marathon.
These -- blended together.
It all has to do with the administration's instinct in it and -- what he -- amazes me the instinctive that this instinct is say.
You know every time something happens it must be -- right wing extremist attacks and thirty of the 31 terrorists only terrorist most wanted terrorist list or.
Among fundamentalist -- out of G hottest him.
This instinct of all the president's saying all the -- self radicalized we don't know that same kind of went from Russia they got loud cough jihadist -- -- -- hottest is the vice president.
There instinct is always just like.
The far left in the thirties forties and it was to diminish Communist.
And so you have elements in the Democratic Party.
Whether it was Hubert Humphrey Scoop Jackson John Kennedy all people trying to George -- trying to.
You don't fight all that in state and what's happened is I think it was a wake up call that thing because he comes back into it.
This was an effort any time you cover up this way and I've said for a long time sooner or whether or dead Americans.
Sooner or later -- coming off -- -- is -- cover.
Now I think it has -- when you have people invoking the whistle blower law which we did not happen.
I don't think the Watergate engaging council.
-- claiming their pressured now this does come from Watergate.
Pressured not to talk and in Watergate case they were paid not to talk yeah that's a cover up.
And engines CBS yesterday coach.
Bob Schieffer of CBS actually talking -- -- worse.
All of the major network the first leg up and done so so -- -- the NBC some of the mansion in New York Times continue -- and Chris is Chris Matthews yesterday and NBC there exclude the thing in their in their role as the chief propagandist or.
Whatever for Obama and in in cover up it did but sooner or later the American people one of the most interesting thing was impressed me as some -- this -- What does that -- -- -- a third of the people 32% -- the administration and honest with the American people.
The rest -- plurality said they were not and a lot in some people would know.
Of -- 66%.
Of those people interview despite.
The press -- generally.
Other than fox and a few other 66%.
Said they were following.
Seeing god be closely or very closely.
There is an interest in news.
And I think you will be we can't use being rekindle any evidence is coming out contradicting what was been told and -- -- and when you have that.
You're gonna get somewhere upward to about a couple of minutes.
What do you see is the fallout implications.
Next steps -- and -- us.
Well I think that the hearing will be highly publicized including on these other networks on Wednesday.
We already know what these guys are gonna say they've been to post or -- That's gonna juice up this issue all over again -- as I said at the end of our show yes I think the Republicans speaking just politically.
Should do two things now they ship institute this select committee in the house.
Boehner should give in on that thing and I think they -- to get they ought to -- themselves on Obama care.
And call for a delay not a repeal the -- not happened that's not going to be -- You literally just as we're closing today offer a comment from one of our.
Viewers are -- Johnny -- and -- not generally say it is not here tonight we have Sean McDowell.
And Sean says Obama care is designer legislation.
That was created long ago as an end all and be all.
Well I wanted to it is 16 in the economy was twenty some Davis.
2000 some 2400.
Pages 25000 -- -- -- this is the biggest boondoggle bowl time.
But you won't end on your point about -- select committee.
That people really have to decide to some Republicans -- -- is resisting the ball he can't 135.
Members of his call his best work.
It's time to stand up for the country and I said -- -- -- -- start telling him no more money into you do these issues.
Now he will be under another portrait to -- -- -- -- this point where we're the only way where everybody know the truth and that's all like -- but I don't care about Boehner and are probably -- I want to know what happened that night when Ford dead American level and -- the president -- -- only conclude by making one quick point.
Pat says he wants the truth John it certainly.
Is committed to the truth our program is committed to the truth.
We've analyzed why this system in Washington isn't working what -- -- see what Boston.
What obamacare I think underscore taken more broadly is we have a system that is not working.
To the benefit of the American people and that is in the elites in Washington.
Are -- representative -- out of -- is in the biggest character she just put your pre grow the beginning to tie up your great comments that are.
-- truth he's dispensable truth is dispensed wagon because it isn't -- here will be back at 530 on Sunday.
-- on the Fox News Channel.
Next Monday thanks for joining us.
