Greta Van Susteren of Fox News interviewed Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) last night. She was discussing the general unwillingness to take on entitlement reform and deal with fraud and waste in the government.
Senator DeMint acknowledged that action was needed on those issues and said he felt this past election reflected that. But an increased Republican presence in Congress is not enough in his view.
“Frankly, it’s going to take another President. This President has failed to lead,” DeMint said. “He’s not telling Americans the truth. He’s actually misleading people about what he’s doing and what he’s done. We need a new President and until then we’ve got to minimize the damage.”
