Obama: I’d rather get this right than get it rushed

On trade negotiations with South Korea:
"Mr. Obama made that clear in a meeting with his advisers after his arrival in Seoul on Wednesday, after Ron Kirk, the United States trade representative and chief negotiator, told Mr. Obama there were sticking points he had yet to overcome. 'I’d rather get this right than get it rushed,' Mr. Obama told Mr. Kirk, according to a senior administration official who was present."
Too bad President Obama didn't feel that way on the healthcare bill which affects a lot more of the U.S. economy and American life than trade with South Korea.
