60 Minutes Broadcast Edits Out Laughable Obama Claim as 4th Best President
What? You sat through the thing and never heard any such thing?
That’s because 60 Minutes edited it out of the broadcast.
TRANSCRIPT – December 2011
KROFT: Tell me, what do you consider your major accomplishments? If this is your last speech. What have you accomplished?
PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, we’re not done yet. I’ve got five more years of stuff to do. But not only saving this country from a great depression. Not only saving the auto industry. But putting in place a system in which we’re gonna start lowering health care costs and you’re never gonna go bankrupt because you get sick or somebody in your family gets sick. Making sure that we have reformed the financial system, so we never again have taxpayer-funded bailouts, and the system is more stable and secure. Making sure that we’ve got millions of kids out here who are able to go to college because we’ve expanded student loans and made college more affordable. Ending Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. Decimating al Qaeda, including Bin Laden being taken off the field. Restoring America’s respect around the world.
The issue here is not gonna be a list of accomplishments. As you said yourself, Steve, you know, I would put our legislative and foreign policy accomplishments in our first two years against any president — with the possible exceptions of Johnson, F.D.R., and Lincoln — just in terms of what we’ve gotten done in modern history. But, you know, but when it comes to the economy, we’ve got a lot more work to do. And we’re gonna keep on at it.
“The issue here is not gonna be a list of accomplishments.” — which he says right after listing his so-called accomplishments!
“I’ve got 5 more years of stuff to do … accomplishments in our first two years” — I’m confused. Did this man LOSE the past year? We already knew he’s no math whiz (57 states), but this is seriously pathetic.
One can only guess how many times the media would’ve played the clip if George W. Bush had made the same bombastic claim to presidential greatness. — Obama can’t count that high, that’s fershure.
