President Barack Obama swiped Fox News in a televised speech on Thursday, in which he mounted an aggressive defense of his economic record.
“There’s a reason fewer Republicans are preaching doom on deficits — because the deficits have come down at almost a record pace, and they’re now manageable. There’s a reason fewer Republicans are running against Obamacare – because while good, affordable health care might seem like a fanged threat to the freedom of the American people on Fox News, it’s working pretty well in the real world,” Obama told students at Northwestern University, to applause.
The anti-Fox line was also tweeted out to Obama’s nearly 48 million followers.
President Obama: While affordable health care might still be a threat to freedom on Fox News, it’s working pretty well in the real world.
