President Barack Obama tried to strike the right balance between being frank with the public about the country's economic problems while moving to instill confidence that he is taking the right steps to turn the situation around, his chief spokesman said Friday. White House press secretary Robert Gibbs was asked about comments earlier in the day by former President Bill Clinton, who said Obama should speak more optimistically about the prospects that the country will recover from its economic woes. Gibbs said he had not discussed Clinton's views with Obama. "But I think he understands, as I said, that ... it's important to be straightforward with the American people about those challenges, to underscore the path that we're taking as being one that he feels will get us on a path toward sustained, long-term economic growth, and to ... give people confidence that those steps are being taken," Gibbs told reporters at his daily briefing.
