60 Minutes Interview With Obama Video at cbs news 60 minutes
In an interview on CBS’ 60 Minutes— his first since the election — Obama spoke about the economy, home foreclosures and whether his mother-in-law will join the first family when it moves into the White House.
“There’s no doubt that we have not been able yet to reset the confidence in the financial markets and in the consumer markets and among businesses that allow the economy to move forward in a strong way,” he said.
“And my job as president is going to be to make sure that we restore that confidence.”
Obama, a Democrat, vowed to quickly establish a program to help homeowners avoid foreclosure and said Congress and the Bush administration should find a compromise this week to provide financial aid to the auto industry.
