Former Republican Sen. Jim DeMint of South Carolina on Sunday said it’s clear that President Obama “plans to keep spending and borrowing and putting more debt on our children.”

Appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” DeMint also praised former GOP vice presidential nominee and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan for his comments on the same program regarding the president’s apparent failure to recognize that the U.S. has a fiscal crisis.

DeMint said. “We can show where President Obama’s ideas go. The tax-and-spend and big-government approach has always failed us. Our job as conservatives is to make sure Americans know that, and we need to show it with real people and real faces.”

He called Ryan’s ideas a “complete contrast” to Obama’s.

With respect to foreign policy, the incoming president of the Heritage Foundation said that the United States needs to better understand the root causes of its failures as well as its successes in order to develop coherency and avoid the perception of weakness.

“We don’t understand what North Korea really is doing right now,” DeMint said, referring to nuclear weapons. “It’s not just to provoke us, but it’s a product demonstration for Iran and other countries that want to see if these things work because we know North Korea wants to sell them. Our problem here is a failure to really understand what is motivating these countries.”
