Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) “had some harsh words for President Barack Obama on Wednesday, accusing him of using the media to manipulate the American people,” The Hill reports.
From his interview with Radio America:
“The president is the one who put the kibosh on working together, and now he’s just trying to use the mainstream media to confuse the American people. The fact is I think he thinks Americans are stupid, and he’s going to play this out until he gets a headline in every paper that Republicans are obstructionist. The fact is, he’s the one who’s obstructing real bipartisanship.”
