President Obama seems baffled by the numerous problems facing the country, suggested freshman Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) on Wednesday.
“I realize, very sadly, he doesn’t know what to do,” said Johnson of Obama, as reported by The Sheboygan Press. “He never did.”
Johnson added it “would be a disaster” to reelect President Obama based on his mishandling of the debt crisis, healthcare reform and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street regulatory reform legislation.
Johnson, who was speaking to a group of Rotary Clubs at the Oshkosh Convention Center, said he fears the U.S. is losing its gift and called for good people to join politics to fight to save the country.
“We have got to demand that we start making changes in this country, that we actually seriously address the problems facing this nation,” said Johnson. “[T]hat’s going to take people stepping up to run for office. Good people, not people … that want the title, but people who recognize America is something precious. … We’ve been given a gift here, and we’re blowing it.”
