President Barack Obama sat down with Philadelphia-based radio host Michael Smerconish on Friday to discuss his reelection effort and his plans for his second term in office. Obama promised that he would do whatever it takes to reach an accommodation with Congressional Republicans, including washing House Majority Leader Rep. John Boehner’s (R-OH) car and walking Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) dog.
President Obama said that one of his first goals in a second term is to try to strike a deal with Congress to address America’s growing debt. The president said that he would pursue both spending cuts and increasing tax revenues to accomplish this goal.
“Will you make the first move,” Smerconish asked. “Will you go to Capitol Hill?”
“I’ll go to Capitol Hill, I’ll wash John Boehner’s car, I’ll walk Mitch McConnell’s dog,” Obama said. “I’ll do whatever is required to get this done.”
