Mike Barnicle on the President’s approach toward tackling poverty in America

On the heels of President Barack Obama’s participation in the bipartisan Catholic-Evangelical Leadership Summit on Overcoming Poverty, Mike Barnicle and Joe Scarborough debate whether the President’s remarks where divisive or not. The President called to task Fox News and the media in reporting on poverty. Joe called the President out for "arrogance" in his remarks. And Mike disagreed with Joe, saying:
“The entire conversation revealed an aspect of the President that I think is wholly admirable, because he has a grip on a big problem in this country today: We no longer know who the poor are," says Mike of the President’s approach toward tackling poverty in America. "Being poor is the hardest job in America." Listen in on the conversation on MSNBC’S Morning Joe.
