Wednesday during his post-election press conference, President Barack Obama said the only change he is making is to work hared to find areas where Republican agree with his agenda.
“The key is to find areas where the agenda that I put forward, one that I believe will help strengthen the middle class and create more ladders of opportunity into the middle class and improve our schools and make college more affordable to more young people and make sure that we’re growing faster as an economy and we stay competitive,” Obama said. “The key is to make sure that those ideas that I have, overlap somewhere with some of the ideas that republicans have. There’s not going to be perfect overlap. There are going to be some ideas that I’ve got that I think the evidence backs up would be good for the economy. And republicans disagree. They’re not going to support those ideas. But I’m going to keep on arguing for them because i think they’re the right thing for the country to do.”
