President Obama on the Daily Show
Jon Stewart does a very good job interviewing the president. He asks progressive questions. The President never backed down. He didn't run and hide. He did explain that the Healthcare Bill and several other pieces of legislation were not "timid". As I mentioned on this blog, these pieces of legislation were the best that we could squeeze out of this Congress. The president mentions that we needed to get 60 votes to get anything passed. This is a great interview. If you have the time I recommend watching all of it.
Are we the people that we have been waiting for?
President Obama acknowledges that people in the US are still hurting. He correctly points out that an economy that was collapsing has been stabilized and is now growing. We have had 9 straight months of private sector job growth.
The President discusses what was in the Healthcare legislation. He correctly points out that the legislation is helping Americans right now.
Jon Stewart asks about Larry Summers and changing the culture in Washington. President Obama mentions that we can't change everything overnight. We have made progress and we have more to do.
