DeMint: Put brakes on Obama or he'll break country

SC Sen. Jim DeMint talked with Greta Van Susteren last night, and delivered another stinging soundbite.

VAN SUSTEREN: All right, you said this comment about Waterloo. Why did you say that?

DEMINT: Well, if we don't put the brakes on the president, he's going to break our country right now.

And the last time we let him ram something through Congress, we ended up with this catastrophic stimulus failure that's hurting our jobs and mortgaging our future. And now he's trying to push this trillion-dollar health care bill through in two weeks, before we go home on the August break. And we've got to slow him down.

And Greta, that's what I hear from Americans more than anything else, Slow down, read the bills, find out what's in them. The president wants to go too fast. We need to put the brakes on.

The exchange comes about a minute in.

Have you noticed DeMint's recent penchant for quipping his way into the press. And have you noticed he's out with a new book that Greta plugs in the interview?

To be fair, DeMint's ideology has remained consistent through all of this, but the timing of his battle with Obama's a welcome coincidence.
