Obama’s priorities

President Obama chose to focus on three priorities in a press conference yesterday.

He cited the credit crisis in Europe as “the biggest headwind” holding back the US economy.

And he criticised Wall Street for banks’ fees, saying that the anti-Wall Street protest spreading across the USA was on the recognition that “not everybody’s been following the rules”, and that there was a desire to get back to “some good old-fashioned American values.”

He also said that he was comfortable with proposed new taxes on American millionaires.
