Obama: Core Philosophy of GOP Candidates the Same


President Barack Obama said on Sunday that it doesn’t matter who the Republicans nominate to run against him in the 2012 election, because the core philosophy of the GOP candidates is the same.

In a wide ranging interview on CBS’ “60 Minutes”, Obama said that if voters believe in the Republican agenda of lower taxes, including for the wealthy, and weaker regulations then he will lose.

“I don’t think that’s where the American people are going to go, because I don’t think the American people believe that based on what they’ve seen before, that’s going to work,” he said.
