  • VIDEO: Jim DeMint Appears on NBC's "Meet the Press"

    Heritage Foundation President-Elect Jim DeMint appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” today to discuss President Obama’s liberal vision for America and how conservatives must counter his radical agenda.

    As he did during a Saturday speech to the National Review Institute, DeMint called on conservatives to do a better job of explaining how their ideas solve problems and lead to more prosperity.

    “One of the reasons I left Congress is that I don’t believe the politicians are going to solve our problems unless the American people force them to,” DeMint told host David Gregory.

    The roundtable discussion included NAACP president and CEO Ben Jealous, The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward, NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell and NBC News’ Ted Koppel. The video runs about 13 minutes.
