WHITE HOUSE (CNN) – White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said Tuesday that President Obama enjoyed his first prime time news conference Monday evening — and plans to stick with a campaign promise to hold them regularly in the future.

Obama answered questions from 13 reporters Monday night during the hour-long press conference.

Gibbs also confirmed that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi visited Obama at the White House Tuesday morning and formally invited Obama to speak before a joint session of Congress February 24, and the President accepted that invitation.

    Thank you Mr. President, it's refreshing to hear you speak with intelligence and in complete sentences. Eight years of double talk and butchery of the English language by Bush was hard to listen to

    @SNIFFIT:

    you might do well to learn a little something yourself. I have read your statement several times..."our education system needs to be "FIZED"?
    How does an educated moron like yourself explain that statement?
