Obama defends delay in response to AIG bonuses

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama is defending his decision to wait a few days before expressing his anger over the bonuses paid out to executives at troubled insurer AIG.

Critics questioned why the president seemed days behind the populist anger over the $165 million that were distributed at the company bailed out with federal tax dollars.

Said Obama: "It took us a couple of days because I like to know what I'm talking about before I speak."
