Chuck Todd: 'Lame Duck' Obama Has Failed to Meet Even 'Modest Goals'

'[Obama] tried to declare 2014 a year of action, but let's be realistic. There hasn't been much'

Todd: White House Tried to Declare a Year of Action ‘But There Hasn’t Been Much’ (Washington Free Beacon)

MSNBC’s The Daily Rundown host Chuck Todd called out a “desperate” White House that tried to make 2014 a year of action, saying “there hasn’t been much” during a segment on the “Six-month stalemate” in Washington.

“White house advisers desperate to turn weakness into a strength and to make Congress look like the impediment tried to declare 2014 as a year of action,” Todd said. “But let’s be realistic. There hasn’t been much. The president was careful to set the bar about as low as he possibly could do it. In his State of the Union address there was no mention of big things, like entitlement reform, no lofty plans for deficit reduction, tax reform, no big challenge of his own party or challenge to the other party.”
