Friday morning, President Obama spoke at the White House and took a few questions from reporters.
The president chastised Congress for failing to approve his jobs bill that he says would improve the economy and he suggested they're sitting on their hands for political purposes. He also talked at some length about the European debt crisis.
Meanwhile, he's had to deal with signs the economy is faltering. Last week's jobs report was disappointing and this Friday, new data showed that last month U.S. exports fell, showing a weakening demand for American goods.
Here to talk about how this all figures into the campaign is Ron Fournier, Editor-in-Chief of National Journal.
