This meeting was like many of the meetings that I would go to over the course of two years. The only way I can describe it is that, well, the president is like a blind man in a roomful of deaf people. There is no discernible connection.
I used some vivid language that, if I could take it back, I'd take it back. It's not my intention to be personally critical of the President or of anyone else.
I'm not willing to say I want to return to private life because I'm too old to begin telling lies now.
I pray daily... for peace.
Our intention is to give people, however you might stylize it, a tax cut or a pay raise.
