During a speech covering the national debt, earmarks, the 2012 Presidential election and the repeal of the health care law on Thursday, DeMint told members of the D.C. chapter of the conservative Federalist Society, “This whole idea that the President is the leader of our country is a mistake.”
DeMint added, “Leadership starts in the homes in the communities, in businesses, in churches. I’ve lived in a community and I know where the leaders are and it’s not in Washington. And this pretense that he’s our nation’s leader… I’m not just talking about Obama I’m talking about any President.”
“A candidate who goes out and makes all these promises about what he’s going to do in all areas of our society needs to be removed from consideration,” DeMint said to applause from the audience.
“It’s pretty clear this President is not going to lead,” DeMint explained to his audience. “We’ve got to replace this President.”
