NBC NATIONAL NEWS — Before sweet talking and strong arming Congressional leaders at the White House, President Obama had a pep talk for business leaders.
The President told small business leaders Washington needs to put aside politics in this election year and get do some work.
"Let's make sure that we don't lose steam at a time when a lot of folks like these are feeling pretty optimistic and are ready to go."
The President is taking a break from the campaign trail today, unleashing Vice President Biden on presumptive Republican Candidate Mitt Romney and his party.
"They don't get us. They don't get who we are!!!", said the Vice President.
Romney has his own surrogate - Herman Cain - who endorsed his former rival and urged Tea Party skeptics to get on board.
"Gov. Romney gets it right on the big issues. Obama gets in wrong on all big issues," said Former Presidential Candidate Herman Cain.
"We really cannot afford trillions of dollars of new federal spending," said Mitt Romney, Presidential Candidate.
Romney himself continued his attacks on President Obama's fiscal record.
Two campaigns, two visions for getting America back on track.
