4:00 pm
am i going to be able to look back and say are more people working, are are more kids going to college? is housing improved? is the financial system more stable? are younger kids getting a better education? do we have greater energy independence? is the environment cleaner? have we done something about climate change? have we dealt with an ongoing terrorist threat and helped to bring about stability around the world? and those things, every single day, i've got an opportunity to make a difference on those fronts. >> [ inaudible ]. >> absolutely not. i wouldn't be satisfied as long as i'm meeting somebody who doesn't have a job and wants one. i'm not going to be satisfied as
4:01 pm
long as there's a kid who writes me a letter and says i got $60,000 worth of debt and i don't know how to pay it back. and the american people aren't satisfied. so i want to do everything i can to deliver for them. >> how about democrats? the fact that they kept you out of the battleground states? >> listen, as i think some of you saw when i was out on the campaign trail, i love campaigning. i love talking to ortd peopdina people. i love listening to their stories. i love shaking hands and gettju seeing the process of democracy and citizenship. manifest itself during an election. but i'm also a practical guy and ultimately, every candidate out there had to make their own decisions about what they thought would be most helpful for them. and you know, i wanted to make
4:02 pm
sure i'm respectful of their particular region, their particular state or congressional district and if it was more helpful for them for me to be behind the scenes, i'm happy to do it. i don't have -- i'll let other people analyze that. what i will emphasize is that one of the nice things about being in your sixth year of the presidency, you've seen ups and downs and you've gotten more than your fair share of attention. and you know, i had the limelight. there have been times where the request for my appearances were endless. there have been times where politically we were down and it all kind of evens out. which is why what's most important, i think, is keeping your eye on the ball and that is
4:03 pm
actually getting some good numbers. scott, last question. >> thank you, mr. president. you mentioned that where your policies actually were on the ballot, they often did better than members of your party. does that signal some shortcoming on your part or on the party's part in framing this election and communicating to the american people what it is that democrats stand for? >> you know, iç do think that e area where i know we're constantly experimenting and trying to do better is just making sure that people know exactly what it is that we're trying to accomplish and what we have accomplished. in clear ways that people can -- that understand how it affects them. i think the minimum wage, i talked about it a lot on the
4:04 pm
campaign trail, but i'm not sure it penetrated. well enough to make a difference. part of what i also think we have to look at is that two-thirds of people who are eligible voting just didn't vote. you know, one of the things i'm very proud of in 2008 and 2012 western when i ran for office, we got people involved who hadn't been involved before. we got folks to vote who hadn't voted before, particularly young people. and that was part of the promise and the excitement was if you get involved, if you participate, if you embrace that sense of citizenship, then things change.
4:05 pm
and not just in abstract ways, they change in concrete ways. somebody gets a job who didn't have it before. somebody gets health care who didn't have it before or a student is able to go to college who couldn't afford it before. and sustaining that, especially in midterm elections, has proven difficult. sustaining that sense of if you get involved, you know -- and if you vote, then there's going to be big change out there. then partly, i think when they look at washington, they say nothing's working, it's not making a difference. there's just a constant slew of bad news coming over the tv screen. then you can understand how folks get discouraged. but it's my job to figure this out. as best i can. and if the way we are talking
4:06 pm
about issues isn't working, i'm going to try some different things. if the ways that we're approaching the republicans in congress isn't working, you know, i'm going to try different things, whether it's having a drink with mitch mcconnell or letting john boehner beat me again at golf. or weekly press conferences. i don't know if that would be effective. whatever i think might make a difference in this, i'm going to be trying out, up until my last day in office. but i'll close with what i said in my opening statement. i am really optimistic about america. i know that's counter to the current mood.
4:07 pm
but when you look at our economy is stronger than just about anybody's. our energy production is better than just about anybody's. we've slashed our deficit by more than half. more people have health insurance.ç our businesses have the strongest balance sheets they've had in decades. our young people are just incredibly talented and gifted and more of them are graduating from high school. more of them are going on to college and more women are getting degrees and entering into the work force. you travel around the country, folks are just good. they're smart and they're hard working. and they don't always pay a lot of attention to washington, in some cases they've given up on washington, but their impulses are not sharply partisan and their impulses are not
4:08 pm
ideological. they are practical, good, generous people. and we continue to be a magnet for the best and brightest from all around the world. we have all the best cards, relative to every other country on earth. armed forces, you talk to them, i had a chance this morning to just call some of the -- our health service that is operating in liberia and the amount of hope and professionalism that they've brought has galvanized the entire country. they built a platform effectively for other countries suddenly to start coming in and we're seeing real progress in fighting the disease in a country that just a month or a month and ahalf ago was desperate and had no hope. so all that makes we optimistic. and my job over the next couple years is to do practical,
4:09 pm
concrete things as much as possible with congress. if it's not possible with congress, on my own, to show people why we should be confident and to give people a sense of progress and a sense of hope. that doesn't mean there aren't going to be ongoing nagging problems that are stubborn and can't be solved overnight. the despite economic growth, wages and income have still not gone up. that's a long-term trend we've seen for 10, 20, 30 years. it makes people worried about not just their own situation but whether their kids are going to be doing better, which is the essence of the american dream. i think there are concrete things we can do to make sure that wages and incomes do go up. minimum wage in those five states was a good start. but i think, more than anything, what i would want to communicate over these next two years is the
4:10 pm
promise and possibility of america. this is just an extraordinary country. and our democracy is messy and we're diverse and we're big and there's times when you're a politician and you're disappointed with election results. maybe i'm just getting older. i don't know. it don't make me mopey. it energizes me. because it means that this democracy is working and people in america were restless and patient and we want to get things done. even when things are going good, we want them to be better. that's why we're the greatest country on earth. that's why i'm so privileged to have a chance to be president for the next couple years. all right? thank you, everybody. came in four minutes under the longest ever news conference in the history of the one and a
4:11 pm
half term obama presidency. you heard right there at the enç a nonmopey president obama continuing the theme, that elections have consequences and democracy can be messy and america is a diverse place. we are joined by chuck todd and andrea mitchell here in the studio. chuck, you're finding while he was talking as he was refusing to characterize the results of last night. >> yes, he was not going to get the headline like he did before, shellacking or bush did something during his six years. he seemed determined not to do that. he didn't want to come across that he was going to be a chiassoned president. he didn't make pledges about backing off on what he might do with immigration. he drew some lines in the san on some things on health care. but he just seemed very determined not to look like he had been beaten down by an electorate which, frankly, he was.
4:12 pm
>> and he was conciliatory in that he talked about working with mitch mcconnell, john boehner and said that they could get things done on trade, on tax reform. and he said he would even enjoy kentucky bourbon, having a drink with mitch mcconnell which he once joked about at a white house correspondents' dinner. >> mocking why don't you have a drunk with mitch mcconnell. he said i'd be happy to have a kentucky bourbon with -- >> that's the pair, by the way. he basically said i trust mitch mcconnell. it's a subtle way of saying, i haven't always been able to trust everything with boehner. >> he clearly feels john boehner has not been able to. >> those are the stakes this day after a lot of the people in the press corps visibly struggling to stay awake after such a long night in america politics. no fault of the president's. just the pace of politics and the late results last night.
4:13 pm
we'll have a look at all of it, of course, tonight on "nbc nightly news" coming up in not too long from now. for my colleagues here in new york, i'm brian williams, nbc news. nbc 10 breaking news. >> nbc 10 live here over oxford circumstance until philadelphia. this is at 4900 penn street where there's been a house fire. nbc 10's christine madella over the scene here. christine, do they seem to have a grip on this? >> reporter: this is much better progress than when we first arrived. take a look at the video when skyforce 10 got to the scene about 20 minutes ago, before the fire crews had even gotten there. there were flames coming out of the front of this house, on penn street between harrison and wakeling. we saw police crews arrive first and brush open the door of the adjacent home that looks like it
