SC Senator Jim DeMint Denies He Said What He Said While Watching Himself Say It
On “This Week,” South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint was played audio of him saying, “If we’re able to stop Obama on this, it will be his Waterloo; it will break him.” Terry Moran asked him about it. (via Think Progress)
MORAN: So did you break him? And is that really how Americans want you to behave here in Washington, break the president? […]
DEMINT: I did not want this to be the President’s Waterloo. But pushing through a massive government take over of our health care system was certainly not a good idea. … We’ve been as Republicans pushing health care reform for years.
Senator Bob Menendez of New Jersey pointed out that DeMint said exactly what he claimed he didn’t say.
