hour, "outnumbered" fins right now. ♪ >> this is "outnumbered." i'm harris faulkner. here today is andrea tantaros. katie pavlich is here, host of brand new show, "kennedy," fox business, kennedy herself. fox news contributor tony saying. -- tony sayegh. he worked on number of campaigns. our whole resume' in the prompter. >> great to be with you. >> you guys have storied history. you have known each other a long time. >> about a decade. we worked on political campaigns together. >> in the trenches. >> long time ago he was political director. i was press secretary. we have been in the trenches. like a brother to me. so i'm pretty happy. >> andrea is the best. >> let's get rolling. trouble is brewing in washington already. just one day after president obama asked for new war powers to fight savages of terror army
isis. democrats and republicans expressing concerns almost immediately what they say is vague language how our military will fight, specifically what we will do on the if needed. the president defending his plan. watch. >> i'm convinced the united states should not get dragged back into another prolonged ground war in the middle east. that is not in our national security interest. it is not necessary already foust to defeat isil. this resolution strikes the necessary balance by giving us the flexibility we need for unforeseen circumstances. for example, if we had actionable intelligence about a gathering of isil leaders, and our partners didn't have the capacity to get them, i would be prepared to order our special forces to take action because i will not allow these terrorists to have a safe haven. >> but democrats want that authorization to be more narrowly tailored while republicans say the president needs even more flexibility.
senator john mccain chairman of the armed services committee weighing in earlier today. >> this was a study in obama incoherency. of course we're grad to know they will be defeated but i will tell you an ugly truth, martha, that is we're going to have to have boots on the ground. unless they can articulate a strategy that will convince us will work in order to do what the president said our goal was to degrade and defeat isis. i believe is it must have something to do with bashar al-assad as well. i don't think it will go anywhere to tell you the. >> >> 73% of americans according to a fox news poll believe obama administration does not have a clear strategy for defeating isis. katy, i will start with you. this is actually how it is supposed to work right? >> right. >> you've got the president boeing through congress.
what might look on blush as something new the president hasn't always gone through congress. >> i do want to give the president credit for going to congress to ask for more author have been asking for at the beginning but i fear he is not doing it because he thinks congress should have a say. he is doing it so congress fights with each other over what they should and should not do. as we've seen, the president's plan he is supposed to be presenting. it isn't really a plan. kind of same thing he has been saying over and over again which by the way hasn't degraded or defeated isil or isis as he said they claim they want to do. certainly hasn't pushed them back concerns territory. the president lays out plan with no specifics. now democrats are fighting and republicans are fighting how to move forward how actually to defeat isis. >> it is interesting. congressman ed royce, california elliot engle new york democrat both issued a costatement yesterday saying the president needs to take his case to the people. if what you're saying though is true, and the kind of motive behind this, that makes it
difficult. >> what's the strategy? i mean really he is all over the place. i think if he came to congress with a clear strategy, this a is not a substitute for one of those, then not just the american public but congress would have better idea what to do. katy is absolutely right. he wants them fighting. >> why? >> harris, one political party denies him boots on the ground i would have done it but they stopped me. if they green light boots on the ground, he jumped in, they wanted to put boots on the ground, i had no say in this matter, it starts to spiral out of control he can blame congress. if you want to take out isis, you wipe them out with two weeks, u.s. military. turn their territory into a ice rink or do nothing. needs to do one or the other. very wise man said, halfhearted measures in war are madness and that's exactly what we're doing. >> military leaders corroborated much of what andrea said. take the handcuffs off the military and strategy, let them
do what has to be done, isis is solvable problem not manageable one, like the president said back in the summer he wants to do. the problem he is waging political battle when he should be waging a battle against islamic tear terror. the problem i think is most significant, sending our epmies wrong message showing it is all on the table. he is willing to compromise defeating something we all know is a major existential threat. that is why our allies are not are supporting us. president obama constantly sent mixed signals to our allies he lacks resolve to really go in there and taking pressure after assad which turkey wants's well. >> what you're say is kind of a disconnect. you're saying everything is on the table but previously, kennedy, he said everything is not on the table because u.s. military would not have boots oned ground. >> he doesn't know where the table is. that is what is scary about it. he wants republicans to have
unlimited power. the wise people here are the american public 7% of them saying the -- 73% says the president has no idea. why would you give so much power to someone with no idea what they're doing? if they have no strategy and absolutely no confines with geography or timeline or anything else that is terrifying. >> actually that is what the point is from the democrats. they're saying, look you've got to narrow this. we want to know what it is. that is interesting in his own party. the other part is the territory. not just the timeline of three years. which will bring everybody kind of back where they are talking about this which is a healthy debate because this is how it is supposed to work but puts everybody, pitches us back here in 36 months. the other thing the war is now changing. senator mccain talked about this yesterday as well. you've got new fighters. guess where they are? afghanistan. roll that, talk about. >> in afghanistan we've seen an initial emergence of isis. the threats are real and the stakes are high.
we can't let afghanistan become a sanctuary for al qaeda or isis. >> all right. how do we know this? because the pentagon confirmed it when they conducted that drone strike in afghanistan's helmond province. they killed the former taliban leader. held at gitmo guantanamo bay. he skipped over to isis to lead and recruit for them. >> that is the problem with the territory thing right? islamic terrorism doesn't exist in one place or the other. it is truly a global war on terror whether the president will admit that or not. essential problem is not what republicans want what democrats want president obama not putting together a coherent plan listening to commanders, strategy you continue to lay out to congress is one that isn't working. comes back to the president refusing to identify the enemy which is islamic terror. >> let me ask about this too because this is really a sticky wicket. we're leaving afghanistan right now. we have 10,000 combat troops. we're going back down to 1,000
by end of this year. how will you ramp up fight of isis in new territory of afghanistan if taliban rebrands themself as isis? >> this is one thing that concerns me i guess as limited bought person here, so what do you want to do? want to keep 10,000 troops in afghanistan? want to send 10,000 troops to iraq? 10,000 troops to syria. >> even limited government people, i'm one of them, believes one of the most premiums thing we have to do as government is national security and military. so your strategy, kennedy, i agree with it, i know where you're coming from if they would have confidence in our president i agree where it is coming from, the problem that also leads to defeat. not only tie president obama's hands but tie hands of military generals. disconnect, harris you're right. the president doesn't want to send american ground forces but not doing what he needs to be done give confidence to the moderate sunni states like iraq like turkey, that they will put
boots on ground. >> i think we need to get over this fantasy we'll let iraqis fight isis, syrians fight isis. we spent billions of dollars -- >> kurds are doing it. >> to train 190,000 iraqi forces ran away with their hands up and let the cities go to isis after we trained them. we shouldn't train them. if we stop isis we get the job done ourselves and leave. >> american boots on the ground, nothing else? >> absolutely. >> okay one problem with that is once we leave, they pop up again, right? >> they're already there. >> that happened this iraq. that happened in afghanistan. it will happen in syria and everywhere else. once we leave there is a new isis. it will have a different name. same kind of people with the same motivation. no one has appropriately addressed the problem of what you do about recidivism? even president obama said -- >> if i could jump in, even president obama said last fall he didn't have a strategy. remember he stood up at the podium, and said, i don't have a
strategy. admitted it to the world. who would do something like that? the department of defense went crazy. again either we go in and flatten them with the full power of the u.s. military and get out, no democracy building, no ink fingers and hearts and mind. think about harris what he is doing. provoking jihadists without doing anything. if i were republicans i would make this point. this is his war. he had opportunity to defeat isis a long time ago he didn't do it. this is obama's war. he made it worse. he is asking to go to war the republicans need to hammer the point home. >> one thing i would say, taliban rebranding themselves to attract resources what we're reading. what is kennedy saying is true not only fill the gap but they're already there too kennedy. >> proliferate. >> with two years left in the obama presidency one of the lost at thissest promises of hope and change campaign could be slipping away.
what could that mean for his legacy. >> they won the national little league championship and america's hearts. the scrappy little legal team lost hits title because of decision made by other adults. is it fair to punish the kids? ant r can't get enough of "outnumbered"? we got you covered. after the show go to fox news online,/"outnumbered." we put you via conversation with our live chat. sign on to facing book and twitter. stay with us. it is close.s kn ♪ just sit down and savor. marie callender's. it's time to savor. okay, listen up! i'm re-workin' the menu. mayo? corn dogs? you are so outta here! aah!

with two years left to go in his presidency that central goal may be slipping way out of reach. the "washington examiner" says, quote, obama's path to the white house was paved by selling himself as a transformational figure who would fundamentally change how washington operates. more than six years since he entered the oval office, the american public now has less faith than ever before in federal institutions to get big things done. in fact, according to gallup, public trust in government stood at nearly 50% just before president obama was inaugurated. and by september of last year, it had slipped to just 40%. all right, tony. let's talk legacy. what do you think the president's legacy will be? i'm guessing it is not hope and change. >> two statistics jump out at me, polls i've looked at last several months that are shocking and startling, paint the picture. one you just showed. 40% of number of confidence american people had during watergate, keep that in mind.
nixon days. those were the dark one, right? other one came out of a "wall street journal" poll came out in the fall 76% of their americans do not believe their children will have as much a bright future and opportunity as they did. destruction of the american dream is unfortunately one of the things happened on this president's watch. lack of confidence that the government can be positive agent of change. the president sold, we're seeing exposed, that government can fix all problems and it can't. thing that worries me about the legacy, he will use this as excuse washington is broken. i have to go through executive orders to fix this myself. his legacy will be overreach in the way of the executive that we've never seen. >> kate at this, even if he does that, people are not satisfied. you follow polls religiously. people have dissatisfaction with the middle east. arab spring. middle east is burning. legacy is how the middle class
is suffering more than ever. >> i thought the president is not concerned with his legacy with the american people as whole, but his legacy with the far left. the executive orders and way he run washington past six years prove that. based on how overall americans feel about their federal government institution, this is huge indictment of barack obama and liberalism far left ideology as government as you said fixes all problems. the growth of government helps middle class. you see opposite actually occur. that will be a long-term thing that republicans can take advantage of, when we say you're dissatisfied with washington. why is that? government has grown out of control and smothering the american people so they can not achieve american dream. >> kennedy what about the point tony mentioned the generational damage that the president has done? parents aren't feeling that their kids would have the same job they would. he promised change but pretty radical change what the president said. >> thing about things parents pass on to their kids like family businesses. also in gallup we saw the
statistic that 470,000 small businesses close every year. only 400,000 are created. so we're under water with small businesses. and you know. entrepreneurs in this country live the american dream breathe the american dream. they pass it on. this president is so antigrowth and so anti-corporations he think he is taking on big corporations but he is really destroying the small ones. that is messing up the economy and ultimately families. >> harris, you've been a journalist a long time, the media, how big of a role do you think the media played in this? they certainly amped him up when he came into office. expectations were high. he won a nobel peace prize. how do you think the media will cover his legacy? >> one way the media let everybody down not fox news, about you when you look across the board and look at questions president has been asked, he promised to work together to have us as one nation. i think legacy not having done that really calls into question about what his dynamics of
leadership really are? he likes to divide things by win or lose. terrorists are going to lose. that is what he said yesterday. every time he gives state of the union i think, maybe three out of four i'm not sure, he says, i won. meaning first election right? so i wonder about his dynamics of leadership. does this president have the ability and in last two years to leave a legacy behind that calls for statesmanship in terms of coming to the middle? is it going to be win-lose or can he do a win-win? >> one of the biggest criticisms he talks a lot about himself a lot. i won, i won. when are the united states going to be winning? when we i will try up for us and spike the football for us? president may toot the horn with an improving economy but when it comes to what americans think a new "fox news poll" shows most americans think it is not getting better for themselves. what does this say about the state of the economy. some democrats are uneasy about

at ally bank no branches equals great rates. it's a fact. kind of like shopping hungry equals overshopping. ♪ >> well, with republican race for the white house ramming up potential democratic front-runner hillary clinton ask giving some democrats heartburn over her intentionally low profile. she has made just two public appearances since christmas and there is nothing on her schedule until late next month. at this point in 2008, president obama and hillary were candidates taking swings at each other. that is causing concern among some of her allies. "wall street journal" saying
quote, some democrats are concerned if mrs. clinton coasts to the nomination without much of a fight, she might be rusty when she squares off against republican opponents during debates. fund-raisers backing mrs. clinton saying it is tougher to draw large financial commitments from donors until she jumps in. missteps of likely gop candidates are exactly why some supporters say she should sit on the sidelines as much as possible. kentucky senator rand paul and new jersey above chris christie coming under fire on controversial comments on vaccines and scott walker making headlines about refusing to answer questions about evolution and foreign affairs while on a trip to london. andrea i will go to you first. i know you don't think hillary clinton is the best candidate for democrats going forward but why should we jump? why would she get in now when republican perfectly finiting each other and have all the
resources in the world while they're done with their primary process. >> that is what she is thinking. she knows if she jumps in becomes the front-runner which she arguably is. she can stay in the shadows and define the republicans. that is exactly what she is doing. she is waiting for them to implode. he you outlined some of things they said recently. she is giving them rope to hang themselves. it comes to a point where she should define what she believes. not pen fit of being able to criticize republicans. if she gets in she would have to acknowledge the administration she was a part of and does not want to define her stance on anything. >> we saw her book tour which was a bit of a disaster and plenty of fodder for republicans to pick on if she chooses to run in sift is. they don't want to give them
that. on issue of fund-raisers i'm not sure they are that concerned considering there is not a lot of options when supporting other candidates. >> fund-raising will not be hillary's concern or internal process of getting a team. she will have of top talent in the democratic party. what andrea said, "new york times" poll, a month ago, a poll hillary clinton was looked at very popular 71% of respondents said they want their next president to take them in a different direction than barack obama. she has to keep as far away from this administration publicly because at the same time that is when her popularity, at least stays where it is if not increases. funniest thing about hillary we keep talking about -- >> the funniest thing? >> is there a funny thing? >> look her political -- is hilarious. we're talking about how inevitable she is yet moveon.org ugov poll yesterday she is losing to elizabeth warren in iowa and new hampshire. now look i don't for a moment
think elizabeth warren will primary hillary clinton. think about what is says, the base of the democratic party is dissatisfied with her a corporatist, centrist, someone not populist obama pretends to be at head of the ticket. that is the problem. >> i love hear you use the word primary as a verb. >> i'm a linguist. >> if she jumps in too early i would imagine that she then has barack obama to define her twice. then senator barack obama defined her as someone who is opposite. she had to jump in 2008 because he was stealing headlines and gaining recognition and gaining something else she couldn't get her arms around that was likability. still struggling with likability. >> and a win. >> as many as woeful moments this president had he still has quite a bit of likability in the polls which is interesting. she doesn't want him jump in yet again to define her in any way, shape or form. >> i think elizabeth warren will run. why you would she be developing this whole team? >> longer hillary clinton stays out she keeps other people out.
once she jumps in fair for other people to jump in as well. she controls the field from the sideline as long as she please. >> you think she likes to control? >> i absolutely think she likes to control. she is getting the head to toe brazilian -- >> don't go there. >> you can not say head to toe brazilian and hillary clinton in the same sentence at lunchtime. >> i'm saying if i were hillary clinton i would go to brazil to have procedures and look like jennifer aniston. >> don't say it again. >> speaking of which talking about how the administration and mainstream media trumpeted jobs picture in this country unfairly so. as far as what we the people think, most americans don't things are getting better for them. a new fox poll shows 65% of country still thinks the country is in recession. that is down 20 points from 2010 but the number of people who say their family is falling behind financially, it is up a point from six years ago at 18%. and, you know, i have been
saying this all along because the, you know especially the administration, they're saying jobs picture is royce sy. economy is picking up. but if you ask people how hard it is to put food on their table to secure a good job, it is a very different picture isn't it? >> when you listen to the president in the state of the union, essentially say everything is great, right? like lego movie. everything is awesome. that was entire mantra of the state of the union. you had people like chris matthews basically challenge him that saying, what are you talking about? 56% of the american people don't feel any economic recovery in their own personal life. when you hear the administration champion economic growth numbers. jon: it is growing 3%, what good is that if the middle class is shrinking? this president presided over biggest allocation of people from middle income brackets into lower income. people are leaving the job force. we have the lowest labor participation in nearly four decades. so this president really has veil thin economic policy as far
as the middle class. which is why he has gone back to the very old antiquated leftist ideas of redistribution. that is his solution. >> what do you mean gone back to? when did he ever depart from those? >> that is his mantra. that is very old way of thinking. remember bill clinton, john kennedy democrat believed in economic growth. they believed in cutting taxes and reinvestment. >> we both agree president obama is profoundly different from bill clinton. always squarely placed on the left. hillary clinton used to be on the left. she moved to the middle. look at stats. why josh earnest and others talk from the podium, people watching go, i don't feel that way. 30 million out of work. >> he gutted the middle class. >> premiums have gone up. record number of people on food stamps. tried to take away college savings accounts couple weeks ago. everything he is doing is at war primarily with the middle class. >> it goes to barack obama and left's basic philosophy mediocrity is okay.
mediocrity is great. that is why president acts like everything in the state of the union is awesome. they think everyone being lower level and not succeeding and growing into the middle class instead of down to the bottom, that's okay. so they celebrate that when really people aren't feeling it because they're not okay with mediocrity and poll numbers reflect that. >> i think there is another indication. i was looking today, because i was fascinated by this. i knew that american household debt peaked in 2007 and falling ever since. consumer debt, cars, student loans, particularly credit cards, it is at an all-time high of $3.2 trillion. >> that is because -- >> that means people having to take food off the table here to pay for some things over here. and they're doing it on credit. that is very slippery slope. that takes away feeling i feel good about the economy. they see a bill every month and attached 18.2% interest rate on that money. or depending on your credit rating. that can be such a shocker such
a heart scratch, no wonder they don't feel great. >> that is the best point. if you're robbing peter to pay paul playing a shell game with your personal finances your economic outlook has not improved at all. >> hasn't changed. >> that is bottom line for most americans. new concerns that things could be unraveling inside of a major u.s. ally in the war on terror. gains al qaeda is making in yemen. what that could mean for washington. plus little league champions stripped of title. the kids they're ones paying the price for something their coaches did. we'll debate whether that is fair. right after the show, go ahead and head to the web for "outnumbered overtime." make the day you log on to foxnews.com/overtime. send us your comments, questions. tell us about any topic you want to hear more about. twitter, facebook. jump on the live chat now. get in early. and we are there.
