House Speaker John Boehner had some especially strong criticism for President Barack Obama in an interview Thursday with Fox News Radio’s Kilmeade & Friends, saying that Obama has “never had a real job.”
Kilmeade asked Boehner about Obama’s campaign speech on Wednesday, in which he appealed to the middle class by slamming Mitt Romney’s tax plan, using an independent analysis from the Tax Policy centre.
Listen, Brian. Sometimes I have to catch my breath and slow down because the rhetoric in this campaign is just so over the top. And that’s because the President’s policies have failed. Listen: 93 per cent of Americans believe they’re a part of the middle class. That’s why you hear the President talk about the middle class every day, because he’s talking to 93 per cent of the American people. But the President has never created a job. He’s never even had a real job, for God’s sakes. And I can tell you from my dealings with him, he has no idea how the real world that we actually live in actually works.
