White House takes swipe at Romney WASHINGTON: White House said on Tuesday that Barack Obama strove to be president of all Americans, not just those who voted for him, capitalizing on Mitt Romney's dismissal of half of the US electorate. Obama's spokesman Jay Carney responded to the Republican nominee's comments in a secretly filmed video taken at a fundraiser for rich donors in which he said 47 percent of Americans backed the president because they see themselves as victims. "When you're president of the United States, you are president of all the people, not just the people who voted for you," Carney said. "You've heard the president say so many times, because he deeply believes it, that we're in this together, all of us. "From the time he began his career in public service his message has been about the fact that what unites us as Americans is far greater than the things that divide us." Romney said in the excerpts ...

Romney faced a barrage of domestic criticism Monday over initial excerpts from ...

Clinton welcomes Suu Kyi for Washington talks  WASHINGTON: US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Tuesday welcomed Aung San Suu Kyi on her first visit to the United States since the Myanmar democracy icon was released from years of house arrest. There is "so much excitement and enthusiasm about the fact that you can actually come," Clinton told Suu Kyi as they met in the State Department.
