Obama pitches his economic plan to conservatives in Idaho

The Associated Press

BOISE, Idaho (AP) President Barack Obama is in conservative-leaning Idaho, saying he still has hopes he can bridge the ideological gaps that have created gridlock in the nation's capital.

He tells an audience at Boise State University that like the school's football team overtime victory in the 2007 Fiesta Bowl, he too can achieve success late in his presidency.

He says: "I don't need to remind you that big things can happen late in the fourth quarter."

Obama is selling the economic proposal he outlined in his State of the Union address. The president says he is addressing skeptics who say his agenda will not find support in the new Congress under Republican control.
