(Newser) – Generally speaking, this is not how to address the leader of the free world: "You're a hottie with a smokin' little body." And yet that's exactly what a Buffalo woman told President Obama when he visited a chicken wing joint today, reports the Chicago Sun-Times. The president responded by giving 45-year-old Luann Haley a hug. "Hi Michelle, eat your heart out," she said.

On more substantive matters, Obama repeated the pitch that his administration's economic policies were working, reports the Washington Post. "Today, we are heading in the right direction," he said. "Those tough steps we took—they're working. Despite all the naysayers—who were predicting failure a year ago—our economy is growing again." Republicans disagreed, as did the Buffalo billboard with the message, "I need a freakin' job," notes CNN.
