Obama vows to 'get the job done' with Republicans

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama is telling Americans who voted for change: "I hear you."

The president said the Republican victories Tuesday in the midterm elections are a sign they want Washington "to get the job done."

In a White House news conference, he said both parties must address those concerns. But he acknowledged as president he has a "unique responsibility to try to make this town work."

He says he's eager to hear Republican ideas for governing together. And he vowed to work hard during his final two years in office to make progress. He says, "It's time for us to take care of business."
