President Barack Obama talks about the economy, Friday, June 8, 2012, in the briefing room of the White House in Washington. The president said that Greece needs to recognize that "hardships will likely be worse" if it leaves eurozone.

As for the economy, Obama urged passage of legislation that he said would create jobs — proposals that Republicans have long blocked.
