Skip to comments.Obama: Pass jobs bill without 'division or delay'

WASHINGTON -Doubling down on his economic agenda, President Barack Obama on Saturday kept up his appeal for public support of his $447 billion proposal to boost jobs and consumer spending, calling on Americans to press Congress to pass the legislation.
In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama reiterated a message that has become a central focus of his presidency amid stubbornly high unemployment numbers and dipping approval over his handling of the economy.
The president announced his jobs legislation to a joint session of Congress last week and has since gone outside Washington to build a case for its passage.
"The No. 1 issue for the people I meet is how we can get back to a place where we're creating good, middle-class jobs that pay well and offer some security," he said.

YEP....this is ONE of THOSE battles in this WAR....
Obama: Pass jobs bill without ‘division or delay’= The madness of King George!
What is the president’s strategy here?
He has to know that its going nowhere fast, and probably won’t make it to a vote in House.
Yet, his shrill advocacy of a DOA bill continues as if it the thing could ever possibly pass in this Congress.
Problem is that no one on either side of the isle, is rushing to write or co-sponsor a bill...hmmm...
This might prove to be quite embarrassing to the obummer.
Has he even found a Dem to introduce HIS bill in the House yet?
If not, that would be a worse embarrassment than his previous bill getting zero votes in the Senate a few months ago.
That is bad when his own party members see his legislation as too toxic to handle.
>>”The No. 1 issue for the people I meet is how we can get back to a place where we’re creating good, middle-class jobs that pay well and offer some security,” he said.<<
It is seeping into “Peoria” that the gummint is NOT the way to create those jobs. Most people think this won’t work. Many people think this will make things worse.
This is DOA and barry’s childish passive-aggressive “if nothing happens it is THEIR fault” blame game has no more currency than the race card his proxies play all the time.
Blah blah blah....Idiot says something....blah blah blah.....
Quick, for the good of the USA!
Already wrote to Sen. Toomey. The other two from my state are lost causes.
At a fundraiser in DC on the 15th of this month, the usurper-in-chief claimed that this bill would create 1.9 million jobs. The bill costs a half a billion dollars so each job would cost over $250,000 per job. What a deal! /s/
Typical whinyass commie snotnose! “I waaaaant it nooooooow!” Knock off the whining Barry!!!
Why? At the moment, there is a Republican Majority in the House, and without some kind of quid pro quo, the level of interest in this bill is ZERO.
Like maybe, repeal the "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act"? Defund EPA? Get the Senate off their duffs and pass a 2012 budget bill compatible with the Ryan version, as has already been passed by the House? How about, expediting a Balanced Budget Amendment through the Senate, and submitting it to the various states?
What's your move, Mr. President?
GoPM to Obama:
Shove it up your a$$ without division or delay.
Our master hath spoken.
“What is the presidents strategy here?”
When the economy doesn’t improve in the next year (and it won’t), he’ll try to blame Republicans for not passing his bill. It won’t work.
If he tries to do that, I will turn him in to #attackwatch, a new conservative site on Twitter. (/s)
