The final press conference of President Obama's first term was this morning. The highlight is in this clip, in which President Obama takes the ridiculous (but omnipresent) Republican terminology of "running America like a business" and turns it back on their debt ceiling drama:

But this bit, in which he accuses gun manufacturers and sales outlets of "ginning up fear" about the government taking people's guns away in order to sell more guns, is pretty great, too:

You can watch the whole press conference right here.

Has Obama conceded to Republicans yet on social security and medicare? How about more tax breaks for oil and banks?

No crushing one-liners here, just simple statements of fact. But with facts being anathema to the GOP and their base, they'll no doubt see phantoms here that I do not.
