Obama agenda: 'We did not fully comprehend … how deep this crisis would be'

“While acknowledging that ‘change is hard,’ President Obama touted the nation's economic progress on his watch during a celebrity-studded fundraising stopover Wednesday night in Los Angeles,” The L.A. Times writes. And he said when running for president in 2008: "We did not fully comprehend at that point how deep this crisis would be.” Then talking about the jobs created in recent months, he said, "Don't underestimate the changes we made."

“Vice President Joe Biden will be visiting Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island next Thursday to fundraise and campaign for President Obama,” the Boston Globe reports.
