Press conference was brief, with Obama doing another one on the economy tomorrow.
It’s clear Obama is taking a page from the smart pol’s playbook, while getting good reviews from the skeptics. Continue to woo the press, which will be critical in his first 100 days. Each presser gets better, with Obama more at ease at the podium and in his new executive role. However, it’s clear he has no intention of moving in, making the point again that there is only one president at a time.
One point, Obama did separate himself from the notion of a “new New Deal.” Cutting waste “line-by-line” in the federal budget, while making sure government is efficiently using taxpayers dollars was the message. Speaking to Wall Street more than main street.
