Gingrich: Obama's immigration comments a declaration of war

(CNN) – Reacting to huge midterm election losses for his party, President Barack Obama Wednesday said he would – if he had to – go ahead with executive orders, including on immigration reform.

Former Speaker of the House and CNN political commentator Newt Gingrich called Obama's comments a declaration of war.

It was "a very conflicted press conference. He's saying I'm going to talk with Republicans, but by the way,
I'm going to punch them in the face as soon as I can," Gingrich said.

Check out more analysis from Gingrich, alongside CNN political commentators Jay Carney, Stephanie Cutter, and Kevin Madden, in the video above.
