President Barack Obama pulled out a pen Wednesday to keep track of a stream of questions being directed at him from CBS reporter Major Garrett during an afternoon news conference.
After asking Obama about whether or not he would still take executive action on immigration following heavy Democratic election losses Tuesday, Garrett followed up asking the president what action he would take when the GOP controlled Congress sends certain items to his desk.

"Republicans haven't made a mystery of some of the things they intend to send—," he said, before the president interjected.
"Do I have to write all these down?" Obama said before cracking a smile.
"You're very well familiar with these," Garrett replied. "These will not be a mystery to you."
Obama, nevertheless, pulled out a pen from his jacket and began taking notes as Garrett continued his lengthy question.
