Obama plugs Pelosi for 'cracking the whip'

At fuel efficiency event in Rose Garden today, President Obama said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has been "cracking the whip and making Congress so productive over the last several days."

Obama's plug comes as Pelosi is under significant fire from Republicans over whether she knew the U.S. used enhanced interrogation techniques, such as waterboarding, on detainees in 2002.
