President Obama just held his first press conference since being re-elected.

I thought it went extremely well.

One of thing things which stood out was Obama mentioned he was planning to talk with Mitt Romney to discuss Romney's ideas for improving the economy. I think this is a true sign of great leadership. Obama shows he is open to ALL ideas from both sides of the isle.

Obama also praised Romney for his work in the Olympics.

Obama also mentioned he wanted to hear ideas from both Republicans and Democrats to deal with the Bush tax cuts, which are set to expire in January.

Below is a video of the conference on YouTube streamed from The White House:

I love when people talk about bi partisanship being a good thing in our current environment.
Mish mashing all the bad policies Democrats and Republicans have inundated our nation with over the last 2 decades does not instill confidence.

It is time for Americans to look for different ideas not a mix of old bad ideas.

Mitt "I know how to grow the economy" Romney knows as much about improving the economy as John "I know how to get Osama Bin Laden" McCain knew about capturing Osama dead or alive.

Obama became angry and petulant again. He skirted questions and bloviated about unimportant stuff and the reporters let him get away with it.

I love how he Alinskied the Susan Rice question. He blamed the questioner. "How dare you do that to that poor little helpless female, little Miss Susie."

God, I despise that. And lefties slurp it right up. And don't see that it's 0bama himself who hates women and thinks they can't do a single thing by themselves. Gotta send in the Government Militia to help the poor little things.

The "woman in question" wasn't there to comment, so what are you talking about? Obama was speaking to the typical republican slimebag cowardice of going after the weakest target. Conservatives are basically bullies, and that's what they do. The more they are called out, the better.
Referring to women, you say "the poor little things"? You sound very much like the child Limbaugh, and it seems that you have woman issues as well. Pathetic - but typically conservative. You righties love women of course - in their place.

Obama wants to implement Romney's 'sketchy deal'?

I think the only hope how to avoid the cliff is Simposn-Bowles whch mnay on both sides favor. Send that to presdient and he either signs ot he doesn't. His request to duble what he has preevoiuly shows he not i on any compromaise at all. he is suhig towards the cliif ;not compromise.The senate fiance committeee was right months ago when leadership form both sides they don't like everyhtig in Smpson-Bowles nut its likely the only coprmise likely.
