Obama Defends His Policies to CEOs:
President Obama rejected assertions on Wednesday that his domestic program amounted to big-government socialism.

Speaking to a group of corporate leaders, he defended his spending, tax and regulatory initiatives as the natural response to a historic economic crisis.

Declaring himself an "ardent believer in the free market," Mr. Obama challenged a line of criticism that has fueled discontent with his presidency. The policies of his first year in office, he said, "were about saving the economy from collapse, not about expanding government's reach into the economy."
"Seriously, dudez," he added. "I'm only acting even marginally like a Democrat because I have to."
