New Orleans Mayor Landrieu: President Obama doing good job

New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu responds to Rep. Gingrey's comments on jobs numbers and blames Congress for inaction.

"I think the president is doing a good job," Landrieu says. "We have 27 months of consistent growth. And I think that the professor is right. This is an economy that the world has not seen in a very, very long time. We're in a global economy and it's really critically important that we all pull together."

Landrieu adds, "One of the things that the economist said is that Congress has done nothing. It's easy to sit back and criticize. If you're not moving forward fry trying to find common ground, it makes it very difficult. It takes two to tango."
