Jake Tapper on Obama's next 100 days: "There will be some pretty difficult fights"

As Tuesday marks the first day of Barack Obama's second term, this evening "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed a live audience, and a full collection of guests, all charged with evaluating the job the president has done thus far during his tenure in Washington, while also laying out expectations, predictions and inspirations for his final four years in the Oval Office.

Joining the program as part of his first official day on CNN, Jake Tapper shared a bit of insight from the nation's capitol, offering a glimpse at what the commander-in-chief will look to accomplish over the course of the next 100 days:

"Obviously he's talked a lot about trying to combat gun violence, and we'll see efforts legislatively right off the bat on that," said the anchor and Washington correspondent. "I also would expect, of course, some of the budgetary issues, of course, will be forced upon him because of the forced spending cuts, the so-called sequester being pushed back."

In terms of both parties working together, to actually pass legislation, Tapper told Piers Morgan that things could get complicated:

"There are areas where there should be some bi-partisan cooperation. Some of them, there will be some pretty difficult fights."

Seated directly across from the host, meanwhile, Mark Cuban offered his opinion as to the state of the country at present, specifically from a financial perspective:

"First of all, I don't think America is in bad shape at all," said the millionaire businessman and owner of multiple companies, including the NBA's Dallas Mavericks. "When we talk about debt, everybody likes to compare it to households. It's not the same. A sovereign debt is not the same as debt I might have or any of us might have as individuals. We can't print money, the country can. We don't have a central bank, the country does. So, it's not even apples to apples."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interviews, as Tapper, Cuban, and Morgan all evaluate the state of the nation, and look forward to the next four years in America.

    Very very disapoointed that Jake has left ABC. He is one reason I watched ABC. I go to CNN for extended coverage of the day's stories but not those brief stories which regular networks carry. I don't think this is a good fit for Jake but hey sometimes you take a chance. The job change can often work. Good luck.

    Jessie Duff – World Champion Shooter – Gun Myths Debunked go to youtube and check it out your being told lies by Morgan and the others . they are the same guns no gun sparys. But its not what guns that are out law its one down the rest to go. I only ask one thing of Morgan stop having any one on the show you do not let talk, it to hard for me and many to watch how bad you treat them you are a bully. laughing at her when she couldn't stand up for her self coward!

    A gun puts me on equal footing with some low life street walking who has no problem beating my head in raping me killing me and spiting on my blood broken body as he takes my wedding rings money and car.
    Why do you work with them that stand arm at your work and why do you have security at home. Come on coward go walk on the real street work in real jobs and live in real homes. Tell me you don’t need guns. By the way what gun was it they used today?

Know one is taking guns away but yet his scaretactics he tries to speak is so embarracing to hear, hes a scarred little boy that would be at the very back of the line behind his psse tofight the good fight.

    New Year's 2013 Wish, No More Cancer Causing Radar Assaults in the Royal Kingdom!

    Thick metal plates, thick copper wires or cables, and a good ground source like a city-household's copper pluming are what is needed for a good faraday cage and protection against radar assaults from neighboring homes or any other source. Note: another problem technology used by organized crime, focused ultra sound, the weakness is water containers.

    Q. Piers, do you deny that the British regimes, the Royal Kingdom, are use energy assault weapons, powerful radar, on targeted citizens from neighboring homes, public places, and at their court houses in attempts to inflict deadly cancers link leukemia and lung cancer on a long term, hidden homicides linked to their claim of a low homicide rate?

    Freedom of Expression vs. Right to Bear Arms

    In Canada they use to say we had the freedom of expression, "the free press", to protect us from tyrannical governments and didn't need to be armed. Now freedom of expression violations are not reported by the Canadian "free press" and people who criticize or vilify the Canadian regime or British regimes by saying that they are tyrannical are censored.

    Q. Piers, do you believe that the freedom of expression is what protects a free society from subjugation and tyranny?

    Canadian Judicial System Broken Through Organized Crime

    Q. Piers, I was unable to address Charter of Rights violations in the criminal code, 20 year old basic human rights violations, due to organized crime. Do you have any idea why the Canadian Judicial System is a broken system through organized crime?

    A. ?

    Non-criminal responsibility before trial in CDN CC 672.12 (1)(3) violates Right to Trial when successful, a human rights violation.

    Allegations of Uttering Threats 264.1 (1) in published articles are not protect by freedom of expression 2(b), goes to trial. (false alleg.)

    Q. Piers, how did Kings, Queens, and Dictators manage to stay in power for so long?

    A. ?

    Q. Piers, the 2nd Amendment is to deter and prevent tyrannical governments, dictators, etc. How do semi-automatics deter tyrannical governments or dictators?

    A. ?

    Cigarettes to lung cancer like guns to gun violence?

    This comparison is incorrect. It took years for the medical community to prove the negative health effects of cigarettes, cancer. It has taken years to prove or show that gun violence is not only linked to organized crime, gangs, mobbing, but that organized crime is also committing acts of terror to advocate gun control, a defenseless population.

    Microwaves vs. Radar Assaults

    Rhetoric update for everyone, when people say they are assaulted by microwaves stick to "did you try wearing a tin foil hat" but if they say they are assaulted by powerful radar say "just don't sit on the antenna like the pigeons, the dead pigeons".

    Thanks for your participation.
