President Obama told ABC that "the country needs" him to win a second term in the White House, explaining that he needs to block unfair Republican economic policies and finish implementing his own.

"Badly, because I think the country needs it," Obama replied last week when Dian Sawyer asked how much he wants to be reelected. "That work remains of making sure that the economy is working for everybody," he explained.

Obama dismissed the Republican economic agenda, saying his opponents believe that "America succeeds when the most powerful can play by their own set of rules."
