Yesterday on CNN’s Situation Room, host Wolf Blizter interviewed former President Jimmy Carter. During the interview, Carter said that he believed that Obama should “stick to his guns” and not let “the Republicans deter him” as he continues his campaign to pass the economic recovery package:
BLITZER: So what advice do you have for the new president as far as the economy is concerened? [...]
CARTER: [S]tick to his guns on what he comes up with as a best approach to a stimulus package. Don’t let the Republicans deter him, don’t back down too much. Stick to it. And take advantage of the fact that the American people have turned to the Democrats to bring us out of this mess.
