Obama Addresses the Economy

Maureen Cavanaugh : President Barack Obama has been on television a lot lately. First, Jay Leno, then "60 Minutes." And last night, a prime-time news conference.

The president is trying in as many ways possible to bring his plan to fix the economy to the public, hoping support for the plan will grow and most of it will be approved by Congress. During the Tuesday news conference, the president fielded lots of questions about the economy and foreign affairs.
