Obama's final News Conference


As the year comes to a close, President Obama is focusing on it's ups, not it's downs.
     But has the fifth year of his Presidency been his worst?
   
Obama went before reporters Friday for his final News Conference of the year.

Focusing on the positive, the President touched on new numbers showing strong economic growth in recent months.
    He also mentioned the recent budget deal on Capitol Hill. And looked ahead to what he hopes to accomplish next year.

"2014 needs to be a year of action. We've got work to do to create more good jobs, to help Americans earn the skills and education they need to do those jobs, and to make sure that those jobs offer the wage and benefits that let families build a little bit of financial security."

The President faces his sharpest critics on the botched roll out of his landmark health care reforms.
    He defended the new laws, saying despite all the problems, millions of Americans now have an option for health insurance.
