( - "[H]ave you noticed really works under this president, from the Secret Service to immigration to the economy?" conservative talk-radio host Mark Levin asked Fox News's Sean Hannity Wednesday night.

"Is there anything this president, from your perspective, has done well?" Hannity asked Levin.

"No. There's not a thing he's done well," Levin replied. "And here's the problem, Sean. People who support big government, centralized government, liberalism -- well, congratulations, you have it. And it's an absolute disaster.

"And here's what's remarkable to me. He doesn't go back and actually look at something, have some circumspection, say, You know, we're going to fix Obamacare. Let's pull back. Maybe we bit off more than we can chew. It's full speed ahead, the foot on the gas pedal.

"Now it's going to be executive imperial fiats for amnesty! He's looking for all these other areas where he can nationalize what shouldn't be nationalized, where he's undermining what shouldn't be undermined. It's just like one thing after another after another!

"This guy does not want to be president. This guy continues to be that community organizer, or disorganizer...sitting in the Oval Office, throwing political mudballs in every direction he possibly can!

"Have you noticed when he's happiest?" Levin asked. "He's happiest when he's campaigning, trashing Republicans, trashing conservatives, trashing capitalism, trashing the Constitution. That's right. He's never really happy doing the job he's supposed to do!"

Hannity asked Levin about Obama, in a "60 Minutes" interview, blaming his national intelligence director for underestimating the ability of ISIS/ISIL "to reconstitute themselves and take advantage of that chaos" in remote areas of Syria.

"It is my contention that the president of the United States right now is in a full-blown cover-up. That's why he went to his favorite '60 Minutes' correspondent, Steve Kroft. That's why he blamed his intelligence agencies for this," Levin said.

"This has nothing to do with the intelligence agencies. It has to do with the intelligence between his ears! And the fact of the matter is, he's not paying attention to his job! He's not attentive to what a president's supposed to be attentive to because he's so busy revolutionizing our economy and our government and transforming it, he's not doing his job!"

Levin wondered if Obama is even reading his intelligence briefings when he reportedly has skipped 60 percent of the face-to-face meetings to discuss those briefings.

"It's time to hold him to account," Levin said, noting that some of the information passed along to Obama shows up in newspapers. "The country's falling apart! It's unraveling! Everything you look at is a mess! It's time to pin him down on something! And this is life and death. This is war and peace.

"And by the way, while we're at it, Congress declares war! Will John Boehner and Mitch McConnell draw up a declaration of war, or are we going to continue to allow this president to conduct himself -- and let me be very clear, and I don't mean to be provocative about this -- he is now fighting a political war! These pinpricks are not stopping ISIS. ISIS is about to conquer Baghdad. It's on the move on the Turkish border. It's more powerful this month than it was last month, despite our bombing raids.

"Obama has the military on a short leash. Now, let's let them off the leash. Let's declare war. And let's defeat them. This is World War III, and we need World War II tactics."
