It's time to get back to work and there is plenty of work to do.
As I said on Tuesday night the American people voted for action not politics as usual.
You elected us to focus on your job's not hours.
And in that spirit I've invited leaders of both parties to the White House next week.
So we can start to build consensus around the challenges that we can only solve together.
President Obama on Friday repeating what he said in his victory speech Tuesday night promising to work with congress and move forward.
To fix the problems that Americans are facing it was an interest in speech and maybe a conciliatory one -- but.
I also heard him say it's up to congress.
To fix this fiscal cliff thing that's coming up at the end of the year or the beginning of next.

Right I totally agree with that and I would also add that as of Friday.

Well and and and there are some huge issues you got Iran apparently pursuing the -- You've got North Korea having the bomb there are all kinds of thorny problems out there in the world in this president.
Is going to have to deliver.
-- power the media gonna cover.
Well I hope they cover with more skepticism.
Than we have John the first time.
Because there are great many questions like why is it that the famous shooting down of that -- shooting out of the -- story.
Only got released after the election and not before eventually the media have to say wait a minute why are we finding these things -- in a timely manner.
It would help -- the at a news conference.
-- it was to help the -- times followed up on their report that we are negotiating with the Iranians.
And and what they -- -- about administration denies it will the New York Times have the courage to defend his own report against Obama denials.
