(CNN) - Three days after being re-elected, President Barack Obama will deliver a statement on the economy Friday, two administration officials said Thursday.
The 1:05 p.m. ET statement in the East Room will serve as an opportunity to address some of the big issues that Washington will tackle in the next few months - including staving off the so-called fiscal cliff - and to outline his priorities moving forward.
An official schedule released by the White House Thursday said the statement would address "the action we need to take to keep our economy growing and reduce our deficit."
Always to walk to the talk is better than talking the talk.Its resonable plans
Congrats my brother, the good Lord 'll be with u.
Statements are such driving forces of action.
This economic mess has to be corrected in very harsh and austere ways. tax increases and spending cuts must happen. we cannot continue to let the dollar slip against the yen and euro or huang. the 0% prime interest rate must rise. we cannot continue to print more money and junk bonds to get us out of this mess. unemployment may have to keep rising back to 9% and underemployment will continue to set records unless austere measures are taken.increasing sales taxes and gasoline taxes may help offset some of the fiscal issues.
"An official schedule released by the White House Thursday said the statement would address "the action we need to take to keep our economy growing and reduce our deficit." Bla bla bla ..Obama will go golfing.
PLEASE stop news people, Obama, etc. from talking about the economy. They did not mention it for 4 years.
Keep them talking about gay marriage, rape, bIack and women's issues, climate change, etc.
DON'T LISTEN TO TALK ABOUT ECONOMY!
Hey that lamp behind him is nice!
Think we should pawn it or put it on Ebay?
Less talk, more action please. Appreciate hearing the White house view, but let's see a forward moving discussion with key members of Congress so the job gets done. Having each side give Press conferences distracts the fact the holidays are coming and you need to stuff the Washington turkey with more tax payer time and money.
Apparently the economy is getting worse, gas prices are coming down. In his own words gas prices are low when people have little money and the economy is doing bad. So, gas prices are falling, guess we are doing worse now than when prices were 1.89 gallon.
Just what we need. Another speech.
Glad that Obama is addressing the economy and the deficit since he didn't do that the first four years.
Glad that Obama is addressing the economy and the deficit since he didn't address them in the last four years.
Obama is a worker. I have no doubt. Obama go go go!
All is well
If Mitt Romney was sincere about wanting to help with the country's recovery, perhaps now, in the name of public service, he can reveal the details of his plans for taxes and jobs. The president strikes me as a very reasonable man, and I'm sure he would be willing to consider Mitt's plan... especially if it really allows for lower taxes, deficit reduction, and increased spending.
Who believes a thing this liar says anymore. Watch sponge bob square pants, you will lean a lot more.
Speak about how the stock market tanked the day after your election!
What is he going to say that he didn't already say 4 years ago? What a wasted effort.
...can't wait for another 4 years of responsibility avoidance. Now that we're in the 2nd term, the blame will shift from Bush to the Republican House.
we are raising your taxes so start hiring...oK Barry right away...idiot
Oh, does Obama have worries about the 7 million unemployed workers and the 16 trillion dollar deficit? No, I think it's the lack luster stock market over the last two days...over 300pt drop Wednesday and over a 100pt drop on Thursday. Maybe his speech today will put the dow in the green...for at least one day.
For not agreeing to cut deficit S&P downgraded US's rating. Just after that congress passed 1 Trillion mandatory cuts over 10 years. Just by implementing 100 Billion cuts how is it going to cause Fiscal Cliff. Even if that is true, why rating companies talking about cut if the cuts are implemented.
If you have say $100(either cash or credit) will you help one of your family member having hardtime or throw toilet paper on your neighbours yard whom you don't like.
Discussion should be only where the cuts should come from both defense and welfare. It is up to the administration, congress can stay away.
"and to outline his priorities moving forward."
Ummmm, shouldn't we as a nation required him to do that BEFORE the election?!? Of course not, what was I thinking. He can't do any wrong according to you liberals; you all better hope he does something, anything, better than he did his first term or you all are toast in the next election. The republicans learned something this go around and they are likely to nominate a young go getter that will eat the Democratic nomination up; especially if it is Joe Biden!
Hope you that elected Obama are ready for more poverty and less money. You made your bed, now lie in it. . .
