Obama: ‘It Doesn’t Really Matter’ Who GOP Nominates
Defiantly proclaiming “it doesn’t really matter” who the Republicans nominate against him, President Obama declared that he is ready to take on either Newt Gingrich or Mitt Romney and ask voters to contrast his vision with that offered by the GOP nominee. In an at-times feisty interview with CBS’s “60 Minutes,” the president suggested there is little difference between the two front-runners for the nomination.
“The core philosophy that they’re expressing is the same,” he told Steve Kroft in an interview conducted in two parts last week and aired Sunday night. “And the contrast in visions between where I want to take the country and… where they say they want to take the country is going to be stark.” He predicted “a good debate” and a clear choice for the voters.
