(Reuters) - President Barack Obama said on Tuesday there were a range of policy options available that could create up to a million new U.S. jobs, in remarks ahead of a major economic speech that he will deliver next week.
Obama must boost growth and bring down unemployment to be confident of winning another White House term in the November 2012 general election. Economists are skeptical he will get Congress to agree to significant new spending on jobs.
"We don't have magic bullets, but what we do have, I think, is the capacity to do some things right now that would make a big difference," Obama said in a interview with popular radio talkshow host Tom Joyner.
The White House says details of the job creation proposals Obama will unveil next week are still being worked out and it has yet to announce an exact date or location for his speech, although Obama hinted at some of the ideas he would put forth.

If wishes were fishes we’d all have a dirty tank.
Maybe us smart people should start a new nation someplace else?
You were supposed to do that with the trillion dollar stimulus prompter man.
Monkeys COULD fly out of my butt. Just sayin’.
You got to aks yourself, if they can creat 1 million
jobs now, why didn’t they do it before??
Yeah; 1 million more hires by the Federal Gubmint, joining the SEIU, and borrowing to fund it.....no news here; just move along.
Hey Hussein, where is that 8% unemployment you promised when you spent that TRILLION DOLLAR PORKULUS MONEY?
Shove it. You had your turn. We're replacing you in 2012, and America will throw your festering policies on the dungheap of history.
Why monkeys fly out of Obama's butt every day!
Decoded: more Shovel-Ready Manure®.
million new U.S. jobs to the unemployment line ?
“You were supposed to do that with the trillion dollar stimulus prompter man”
If I’m counting my zeros correctly, even a million jobs created by a trillion dollar boondoggle would cost...a million dollars apiece.
Obama COULD add 1 million government jobs.
“if’s and buts were candied nuts, we would all be rich and fat”.
Wow. A million jobs. Is that on top of the 2.5 million jobs Obama has already created?
There will be nearly zero support for another failed stimulus. This will not work well for the president.
1 million new jobs? All gov workers?
The caveat word is, ‘could’. I could also add a million new jobs and so could you.
America, if they work together, ‘could’ add 310 trillion new jobs to the economy of the world.
“We’ve got to do it, unfortunately, at a time when money is tight. George Bush left us (a) $1 trillion deficit,” he said, referring to the former Republican president. “
Reagan was “left” with a mess. He got to work and not once complained about Carter.
A nation will do itself good when it rids itself of a little $hit like O in 2012.
If ifs and buts were candy and nuts, we’d all have a wonderful Christmas;)
