Obama Calls America Soft, Puts Forth Sales Pitch


President Barack Obama called America soft and noted that the country needed to regain its competitive edge to return to glory in an interview in Orlando, Fla., Fox News reported.

The President and his Vice President Joe Biden were all over the air waves as part of a push to get support for the economic stimulus plan that the Administration put forth. Biden noted that the current problems facing the country could no longer be blamed on former President George W. Bush, according to the news outlet.

"Right now — understandably, totally legitimate — this is a referendum on Obama and Biden and the nature and state of the economy," Biden told public radio listeners. "It's soon going to be a choice."

Though the Obama Administration began to take some of the blame for their complicity in the current economic chaos that exists, Biden went on to say that he believed that America could be in a worse place.

The Washington Post reported that Obama gave the interview in Florida to try and reach across the aisle to grab voters in the swing State.
