CNBC just broadcasted an
interview with Obama.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: No, I think this time’s different. I think they should be concerned. And — I had a chance to speak to — some of the financial industry who came down for their typical trip. And I told them that — it is — not unusual for Democrats and Republicans to disagree. That’s the way the founders designed our government. Democracy’s messy.
