President Barack Obama told CNN’s David Letterman on Tuesday that a U.S. president should work for every American, whether or not they voted for him. The president’s comments came in the wake of the release of a video showing Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney suggesting that Mr. Obama’s voters were freeloaders who believed that they were entitled to all the help they received from the government.
Any new survey conducted by Democracy Corps between July 21 and July 25 found that the number of Americans who believe that the country is headed in the wrong direction has fallen slightly of late, although the majority still believe Mr. Obama‘s economic policies are not in the best interests of in the nation.
According to the latest survey conducted by The Field Poll in California, the majority of Latino voters will be supporting President Barack Obama on Nov. 6. The same poll shows that Mr. Obama currently garners the support of 48 percent of all voters, while former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney has the support of 32 percent of the California electorate.
According to journalists who overheard a private meeting between Mr. Obama and French President Nicolas Sarkozy, both leaders expressed their frustration at Mr. Netanyahu’s behavior.
Mr. Sarkozy is reported to have said he “could no longer stand him” and that “he was a liar.” Mr. Obama is thought to have told the French head of state that he was getting away lightly. “You’re fed up with him? I have to deal with him every day!” was Mr. Obama’s response.
