Yah? We heard that 4 1/2 years ago! Remember when he wasn't going to do anything but concentrate on jobs? We just have 3 1/2 years before we can really get someone who doesn't play golf/basketball/vacation/party and will really concentrate on bringing us together and put in place an atmosphere where jobs can be created! Hope I live long enough!

Yah? We heard that 4 1/2 years ago! Remember when he wasn't going to do anything but concentrate on jobs? Then reality set in when the GOP members of Congress, in frantic efforts to keep their ultra right wing supporters happy, began their campaign of "Just Say NO and hope we can make this guy a one-term president!" We just have 3 1/2 years before we can try to elect members of Congress who will really concentrate on bringing us together and put in place an atmosphere where jobs can be created! Hope I live long enough!

“an economy that is growing and creating well-paying middle-class jobs must be the guiding principle for Washington policymakers.”

OK, BO, if that’s what you believe, then repeal Obamacare and get the EPA to back off a little. Reduced hours and stagnant wages are what you have done to us.

Erecting additional barriers to hiring, especially for the unskilled and young, like an increased minimum wage, will only prevent the workforce from gaining experience and skills needed to improve their value to employers.

You need to remove the barriers you have created to private job growth so the economy can fully recover.

His administration promised his porkulus, passed four years ago, would keep unemployment below 8%. We know that was a lie and he has NO credible track record on managing a complex economy.

Old man,
How quickly you forget his party had control of both houses of congress for his first two miserable years. You cannot correctly blame his incompetence on the opposition.

Job opportunity tour? Wow! I hope it comes to my town. I am pretty sure the Comedy Club will book it. Smoke and mirrors all the time.

It takes a special kind of coward to go to bed when people he is supposed to be protecting are in harms way.

Who will get the jobs first, LEGAL Americans or illegal trespassers?

I think I know the answer.

All this amounts to is a massive waste of jet fuel....but at least it sort of get's the man out of town and attempts to redirect attention as the Libya scandal hearings unfold where he is at the top of the liar list along with Hilary. Our country is REALLY hurting and states like Texas and Utah are able to keep their heads above water simply because they are run by conservatives...unlike California, Illinois and other liberal run stink holes who are basically dying from over taxation , regulations and massive debt.

Mr. President, tell us how immigration expansion and amnesty for Hi Tech workers here illegally benefits the middle class.

Tens of millions were given to Pakistan, to advertise an apology of a video tape of Muslims. This was falsely the blame for a massacre at Benghazi.

That money could have gone into business investments, and created middle-class jobs.

But that was eight months ago, and what difference does that make? We couldn't build that.

How about the Community organizer get jobs to find out what happened in Benghazi? After the truth comes out about this coverup he'll need a job
