Prez: “I’ve been keeping my own naughty and nice list for Washington.”

PBO at toy manufacturer, Rodon Group, in Pennsylvania, November 30


President Barack Obama addressed the nation Friday about the impending fiscal cliff at a press event held at the K’NEX toy factory in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He took the opportunity to lightheartedly warn Congress to be careful: “I’ve been keeping my own naughty and nice list for Washington.”

The President went on to compliment the K’NEX company, saying, “They manufacture almost 3,000 K’NEX pieces every minute, and every box that ends up on store shelves, that ends up in 30 countries is stamped “Made in America”, and that’s something to be proud of of.”

He continued, joking that “Santa delivers everywhere”, but unlike Santa, he would only be giving gifts to a select few members of Congress. He told viewers, “you should keep your eye on who gets some K’NEX this year. There are going to be some members of Congress who get them and some who don’t.”

The major message of the President’s speech was for constituents to make their voices heard with their Congressmen by using email, Facebook and Twitter to express their wishes. The President reminded the audience and viewers that his administration has created a hastag, “#MY2K“, which Tweeters should use to communicate with each other, and with their politicians, about the looming cliff. He expressed his optimism that a compromise could be reached and again expressed his intention to sign a deal as soon as possible.
