Obama, on the vitriol directed towards him:
Well, I think, when you listen to Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck, it’s pretty apparent, and it’s troublesome. But, you know, keep in mind that there have been periods in American history where this kind of vitriol comes out. It happens often when you’ve got an economy that’s making people more anxious, but that’s not the vast majority of Americans.
