Obama: ‘TV and Talk Radio Doesn’t Tell the Truth About What’s Going On’

‘We listen to a bunch of hooey on TV and talk radio’

"I want to make sure that some kid stuck in the inner city somewhere, that they got a shot. I can't do it for them, but I want to make sure at least that they got a shot. I want to make sure that somebody down in some little border town in Texas whose parents maybe  never went to college, that they got the dream, that they've got a shot. And I am willing to do something about that. We all have to be.

When we make those commitments to all of our children, the great thing about it is that the blessings are returned back to us because you end up having a  workforce that's better educated, which means suddenly companies want to locate, which means businesses starts boom, which means business start hire, which means everybody does better.

So not only is it the right thing to do, it's the smart thing to do. That's our tradition. Not Democratic or Republican, it is the American tradition and we forget that sometimes because we're so caught up in our day-to-day politics, and we listen to a bunch of hooey on TV or talk radio that doesn't really tell the truth about what's going on. (Applause)

I proud of [indecipherable], I am proud of these young people. I am proud of Choctaw Nation and I surely am proud of these United States of America. And let's get to work and make sure we are leaving the kind of country we want for our kids. God bless you. God bless the United States of America."
