LOS ANGELES (AP) - President Barack Obama is defending his appearance on Jay Leno’s late-night talk show.

He says his Thursday appearance on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” is not keeping him from pressing matters. Some critics have questioned whether the television stint distracts from his work to fix the economy.

Obama says he can do more than one thing at a time and is working on a host of issues, including climate change and health care reform.

Obama is in California on a two-day swing to promote his economic agenda. He is the first sitting president to appear on the late-night program. Aides say it’s a way for Obama to make his case to more Americans.
