With the final financial regulation vote just hours away, Sen. BobCorker, (R-Tennessee), told CNBC Thursday that President Obama lacked the leadership skills needed to create jobs and to drive the country out of the recession.
“This administration came into a situation where the economy was down. Instead of focusing on that, they pressed an ideology and continue to press an ideology that basically creates a malaise over jobs,” the senator said.
“But, Number 2, [the administration has created] uncertainty,” he added.
Corker also said he believes very few people in the administration know how to grow the economy.
Corker is a member of the Senate's Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee.
