President Barack Obama “doesn’t understand the country we live in,” Speaker of the House John Boehner tells Newsmax.TV in an exclusive interview.

Asked what he believes are Obama’s greatest assets and greatest liabilities, Boehner responds: “His greatest asset is that he’s a very smart guy, very well educated.

“In terms of the other side of the equation, the president’s never worked in the private sector. I don’t think he really understands how the American economy works, doesn’t understand the country that we live in and what makes it go.

“He’s got the belief that the government plays this giant role in our economy.

“But the president’s got a tough job. My job isn’t to make it more difficult. My job is to work with him to get things accomplished for the American people.

“While we may have very different ideas about what will help the American people, they still expect us to work together to find enough common ground to be able to move our economy forward.”
