Obama’s appearance on Late Show With David Letterman.  What a talking head. Obama made sure he took jabs at Mitt Romney.

Obama commented,

There are not a lot of people out there who think they’re victims. There are not a lot of people who think they’re entitled to something.”

Also Obama stated,

One thing I’ve learned as president is that you represent the entire country, My expectation is if you want to be president, you’ve got to work for everybody, not just for some. When you run for president, you are under a microscope all the time. All of us make mistakes. That incident in 2008, I immediately said, I regret this. What I think people want to make sure of is you’re not writing off a big chunk of the country.”

On the terrorism in Libya and Muslims Obama remarked,

The message we have to send, I think, to the Muslim world is, we expect you to work with us to keep our people safe. And as offensive as this video was , and obviously, we denounced it, and the united states government had nothing to do with it, that’s never an excuse for violence. And in this part of the region, as they emerge, into a new form of government, part of what they’re going to have to do is to recognize that democracy is not just casting a ballot, it’s respecting freedom of speech and tolerating people with different points of view, and it means that you’ve got to make sure that you never have any excuses for the kind of violence against innocents we saw last week, and that’s a message that I’ve sent very clearly to the leaders of various countries, and we expect their full cooperation, because that’s the only way the international order works.”
