WASHINGTON (CBSNewYork) — Days after revelations that his approval rating had hit an all-time low, President Barack Obama reviewed his record in office in his weekly radio address Saturday and took aim at his Republican rivals.
Obama began by conceding that Americans have a good reason to be frustrated with their elected officials.
“Over the past couple months, most of the political headlines you’ve read have probably been about the government shutdown and the launch of the Affordable Care Act. And I know that many of you have rightly never been more frustrated with Washington,” he said. “But if you look beyond those headlines, there are some good things happening in our economy. And that’s been my top priority since the day I walked into the Oval Office.”
