President Obama aired out his beef with Republican House Speaker John Boehner last night on CBS News, revealing that Boehner and the Republican caucus are taking deliberate action not to help him succeed in moving forward and getting things done.
Obama spoke to CBS's Scott Pelley about his working relationshio with the Speaker:
"I like the speaker personally, actually. You know, I actually think that he is a good and decent man who I think wants to do the right thing for the country. His challenge is that there's a wing of his caucus now that is prominent, vocal and thinks compromise is a dirty word. And he hasn't been able to control that caucus."
Later in the interview, Obama pointed out that Boehner is not shy about his endorsement of presidential nominee Mitt Romney, and in order to help Romney, Boehner does not want to aide the president in making changes that would help the American people.
"Two months before an election, the speaker is obviously supportive of my opponent and his party and he wants to win as many seats as he can. And he's not gonna go out of his way to try to help me get things done that he thinks I may be able to take credit for," Obama said.
Politics should never take precedent over the will and needs of the American people. It's time to vote out politicans that place their agenda over ours!
