Brian Schweitzer has given every indication lately that he’s not exactly a President Obama fan.
Now there’s MSNBC’s Benjy Sarlin’s profile of Schweitzer, who struggled to identify a single positive achievement under Obama’s belt.
“My mother, God rest her soul, told me ‘Brian, if you can’t think of something nice to say about something change the subject,’” Schweitzer said after a long pause, before slamming Obama’s record on civil liberties and the Affordable Care Act.
While ramping up speculation that he’s preparing a 2016 presidential bid, Schweitzer has made it a point to distinguish himself from both Obama and Hillary Clinton.
