Much of POTUS' answers in the interview, which was made available in full this week, were directly aimed at the Republican party. He blamed Republicans for political gridlock on Capitol Hill and spoke out against GOP members of Congress' who sent an open letter (written on March 9, the day before the Vice interview) to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, warning the Iranian leader that any of Obama's nuclear arms deals would not last past his presidency.
Some of Obama's answers were typically presidential, with only abstract ideology presented and no clear-cut solutions offered. But a few soundbite gems definitely emerged, particularly when it came his views on how the Republican party could improve. Oh, and his thoughts on young people's obsession with marijuana legalization? Priceless.
On how his two daughters give him hope for climate change policy
On political gridlock in the federal government
On the Republicans' letter to Iranian leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei
On U.S. foreign policy and the ISIS threat
On the federal government legalizing marijuana
Watch the full interview as Vice sits down with Obama and asks the questions we're all wondering.
