On Monday, President Barack Obama said at a town hall meeting Monday televised on CNBC that he wanted those in the tea party movement to offer some specific ideas to address the economy, the federal deficit and the country’s debt.
Brian Goettl, the Jessamine County Attorney who was among the first group of activists in Kentucky to organize tea party rallies early in 2009, responded to Obama’s challenge on the conservative site he co-founded, the Conservative Edge.
I spoke with him via Skype this week. Here’s the portion of that interview that aired Wednesday night on Pure Politics:
