FIRST ON CNN: Obama to make statement on economy Friday

(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."

    Yes another speech. Do not wait to get money from us and fix your failure strategy. You need to ask the 50% of people who voted for you to donate but do not wait from the 48% of people who voted for Mitt to participate

    I hope our nation realizes that for the last two years, Obama has been obstructed in Congess by the Tea Republicans. They have done so for pure political gain and on the backs of most Americans. Should they continue to obsturct and not work with the administration to "compromise" OUT THEY MUST GO !! They have held this country back long enough. 2014 is right around the corner and millions will be watching their actions. Term limits are the key to our childrens future !!
