    Like just about everyone already knows, congress has stonewalled every move Obama has been trying to make. Charlie Rose interviewed Obama and Obama expressed his frustration with the combative Congress. He wishes he had been tougher in dealing with Congress. “The mistake of my first couple of years was thinking that this job was just about getting the policy right, and that’s important. But, you know, the nature of this office is also to tell a story to the American people that gives them a sense of unity and purpose and optimism, especially during tough times.”

    His second term should hopefully be a lot smoother as the economy continues to get back on track under his Presidency.
