QUICK TAKE: Obama Comments on Penn State Scandal

Speaking to ESPN on the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier Friday night, President Obama called the child sex abuse case against the Penn State football program "heartbreaking."

"I think it's a good time for us to do some soul searching," said the president, "Every institution, not just Penn State, (should know) what our priorities are and make sure our first priority is protecting our kids."

 

Obama also echoed a statement released by the White House yesterday that expressed condolescences for the victims of the alleged abuse.
