President Obama getting a taste of the summer doldrums.
And then some.
His poll numbers really going down staying down and take a look at the latest real clear politics polling average this is an average mind you.
He finds 46% say the president is doing a good job nearly 49%.
Say he he is not.
Let's bring in our political insiders -- probably -- former Republican congressman for New York packet -- all Fox News contributor former pollster for president.
Jimmy Carter Doug -- also -- Fox News contributor.
And a former pollster for Bill Clinton right -- -- -- water and be going in the wrong direction but if you look at a couple of the categories.
The millennial skids under thirty.
Points he hasn't lost among those voters you know independence he's taken a beating.
Well two things going on I think with millennial combination of the economy and particularly the NSA scandal has really hurt him and I think with the independent state tend to be performance oriented and if you look this week.
Greg at what happened at the G-8.
What happened with president.
Prudent and now this week government today.
Going to Moscow.
Right and apparently heading to Ecuador all the while Syria being effectively under the control of the Russians.
We are losing and losing big internationally were weakening at a home bottom line no surprise the poll that you GI wolf.
Who doesn't really lead in May not have the skills of leadership -- leadership has been a problem for him on these issues.
The issues he talks about 8% think they're important immigration.
Whatever but you know what my whole team of all this is the contempt for the American people he's going to Africa spending a hundred million dollars toward the post the White House tours are -- We have and -- we have mr.
Mueller was -- the IRS you know.
He didn't even know who is investigate Washington this is his attitude of contempt the seventy million dollars being paid above all -- he recalled how much money.
By the new acting director of the IRS.
Contempt for everyone -- we -- we all of these scandals.
That the president he's knee deep in I think easy already approaching blamed.
Up status is approaching it needs weakening.
He's got less power politically because.
But here we're talking about the deterioration of the Obama presidency.
Where is the Republican alternative to this thing this past week did we hear word from them about NSA.
Fire us Ben Ghazi.
Now they spent their time on the floor debating a late term abortion bill did pass the house he will not going to be brought up in the senate.
They knew it wouldn't be brought up so they spent their energy on that to assuage their base.
Instead of capitalizing on the president's weakness if it was reversed if a Republican president.
Was in trouble.
None of us believe that a democratic congress would let him off the hook this.
You know and it is not just here in America -- because ever gives a big speech in Berlin that crews out not to beat beat that all the crowd wasn't very big -- is anemic crowd.
The speech was according to critics delivered very very poorly and Doug you know there appeared to be.
Either apathy or did see -- -- -- interest among the people.
Well we have the Specter the president going talking about the need to.
Eliminate nuclear weapons.
When the Russians and the Chinese -- army and certainly the Russians are upgrading their nuclear weapons he goes to NORTHERN IRELAND and sort of says.
We need a model and serial like northern Iowa.
Great it doesn't play overseas it doesn't play at home this is a presidency that is close to Linda and would have.
Is to Syria for example -- -- you see the president who needs it and sitting together next to each other and it kind of an awful picture.
In which two people are definitely not communicating so much -- for the president's desire to reset.
Relations but you know he's -- eating his one each -- over Syria.
It just -- contempt that the body language of Putin's contempt for Obama he's winning in Syria.
Obama is losing and Obama's table we gonna get together we'll have a conference and the -- I don't know why why would -- do that they have any say over when to cut nuclear weapons -- -- I'm increasing my -- full.
You know it's like insist it is all of that left -- and let me talk about the IRS a lot of -- -- the IRS we got a couple of -- John wanna get your reaction on this Rasmussen poll.
Decision by the -- are asked to target conservatives.
Think he came from Washington -- buying in this business about -- a couple of low level folks in Cincinnati.
And then when you -- -- Washington look at these numbers.
41% from the White House.
From the DC office of the IRS people are smarter.
Than we think they're way ahead this is why it kills me that the Republicans are investigating this thing more aggressively and driving this thing.
Right up into the White House to find out the things we -- later that doesn't -- I mean what is that -- can't speak for -- but it doesn't seem that he's that eager why -- there select committees being appointed and already at work on the IRS thing.
And bank Gaza that -- -- does it one has been called for by a majority.
Of the Republican conference and he still -- There's another one I wanna put their small business fear of the -- and he -- the IRS has always been pervasive but look at these numbers.
Well the numbers are all pervasive with 61% insert they speak to a larger issue that.
Pat and I and John have been talking about which is the fear the American people have.
There's the IRS there's inclusion through the NSA there's journalists like James Rosen being investigated unfairly.
Bottom line in America we have traditional liberties and freedom there being -- road and -- Shields goes up to Capitol Hill AKA FBI director Mueller and I know nothing I see nothing I hear nothing he he he doesn't even know the only thing we need to invest.
Students are not serious it's like the collusion -- when when the two.
When they the other say hearing when the FBI guy and it just doesn't go to call by you BR we hear about what it's all about how were fleeing the country.
Who could we don't care about it.
Part of the Republican problem is that look you two thirds of Americans who believe it -- multiple -- of the governs direct threat to their freedom.
They're not only -- -- trust they're afraid of the governor.
Well makes matters -- John win the president's new appointees to clean up the IRS announces seventeen million dollars in.
-- know it's all partisan thing but here's a big picture fought for us.
Conservatives not Republicans conservatives for decades have warned against the power of -- large federal government out of control.
Here we have we have -- reelected president who doesn't have to run again running amok in the IRS EPA the NSA.
A lot of covering up -- God's a god knows what else we're gonna find out about other scandals.
Pat has pointed this out their part of the problem they -- the ballot bowl like political class has just look at this the image of Republicans is to add an historical low according to account with -- that.
Do you hear any Republicans talking about what we just talked about -- that the government is the enemy of the people.
Problem is withdrawn when you have a party -- leadership is horrible Washington -- junior government party.
That you have a problem because the messages that people want to hear -- -- and I.
