President Obama on NBC’s “Today” Show Tuesday blasted critics who claim that he’s emotionally detached from the economy calling it “nonsense.”

“Ordinary folks understand I spend all my time thinking about this stuff because I’m talking to these folks every single day,” he said in the interview.

“For us to employ the same numbers of workers as we need to, to get the unemployment rate down, we’ve got to look at new sectors, new markets. We’ve got to do more exporting. So one of my big areas of focus has been on increasing exports.”
