Former Memphis congressman Harold Ford Jr. was on “Meet the Press” Sunday for an appearance during which he tried to give President Obama some economic advice.
He also seemed to suggest that Obama and the rest of the Democratic party needed to “look beyond” the Occupy Wall Street movement.
Said Ford: “We Democrats can’t criticize Republicans for catering to the tea party and not be–and not say to our Democratic Party you’ve got to look beyond Occupy and be willing to do what’s in the best interest of the country.”
Ford is the former U.S. Rep. for the Ninth Congressional District. He’s currently a Bank of America Merrill Lynch executive.
