“No, listen, when I spoke to the president, we had a lot of laughs, and I told him he has to keep his sense of humor. Even in my acceptance speech, I joked around because, you know, I’m a regular guy. I have a sense of humor. That’s one of the things that insulates me from a lot of the negativity.”
And he went on further to say:
"So, you know, I agree with him on a few things. I think he’s done a great job with North Korea and Iran and the war in Afghanistan. I thought he’s done a very nice job. The simple fact that he had the guts to step back, analyze the situation and then make a determination that we need to finish the job and provide the tools and resources for our soldiers to do just that, that was great. So, you know, the health care bill, which you’re probably thinking about, for Massachusetts, it was not good. To think of paying higher taxes and have a half trillion in cuts and basically desensitizing places like Nebraska, when we already have 98 percent of our people insured, we have a very good plan, it didn’t make sense."
