WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama acknowledges that the
fall elections could amount to a referendum on his stewardship of
the nation's affairs.
Obama tells NBC in an interview that "nobody in the White House
is satisfied" with continuing high unemployment.
But he also says the midterm congressional elections could come
down to "a choice between the policies that got us into this mess
and my policies that got us out of this mess."
The president said in the interview he believes voters "are
going to say the policies that got us into this mess, we can't go
back to." He also said Washington "has spent an inordinate amount
of time on politics - who's up and who's down - and not enough on
what we're doing for the American people."
