Last night President Obama was in town for two fundraisers, but he also stopped by the Late Show to discuss the surreptitiously-filmed video of Romney writing off half the country as shiftless moochers who are a lost cause for his campaign.

The president also discussed the recent attack in Libya that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. After saying he was committed to bringing those who committed it to justice as well as promoting democracy in the Middle East, he added:

Letterman also expressed a desire to want to blame someone for the economy, which Obama said he blamed everyone, describing how the country has had economic issues for at least ten years. "Can I blame Biden?" Letterman asked. "I love Joe," the president replied. And (probably) so does she.
