ARLINGTON, Virginia (Reuters) - President Barack Obama said on Friday he would urge Congress next week to implement "common sense ideas" to accelerate job growth, as he sought to deflect blame toward Republican lawmakers for not doing enough to bring down unemployment.
Obama, in remarks after government data showed the pace of hiring by U.S. businesses slowed in April, acknowledged that too many Americans remained without work.
"That is why next week I am going to urge Congress, as they start getting back to work, to take some actions on some common sense ideas right now that can accelerate even more job growth," he said at a school in northern Virginia, a state viewed as a key battleground in the November 6 presidential election.
The economy will be a dominant factor as voters weigh whether to grant Obama a second White House term, and he took the opportunity to remind Americans that congressional gridlock on legislation that might lift growth was hampering progress.

Advice from someone who does not have a nodding acquaintance with common sense. He wouldn’t recognize it if it walked up and bit him.
He’s suggesting that he be impeached?
“Obama” and “common sense” should NEVER be used in the same sentence.
Get out of my head! That was the exact thing I thought when I saw the headline.
Pass more laws for jobs?
Common sense for job growth:
1. Obama should resign to boost confidence in the economy.
2. Congress should repeal ObamaCare to reduce the cost of hiring.
3. Congress should balance the budget so that employers can have confidence that their profits will not disappear after inflation.
4. Congress should repeal excessive regulations and specifically revoke all the nonsense decisions made by the Obama administration’s bureaucrats.
Fund teachers, police, more government workers, and highways and bridges? Assuring accelerated future expenditures on the backs of taxpayers is a real fix for the economy.............
Did I guess correctly?
Repave all da roads sooo da unemployed have a smoooth ride to unemploymeent office!
Obama farted, halllellluuujah!
“Common Sense” comes from The Laws of Nature and Marxists threw out Natural Law Theory-—so they could reorganize and shape men for a utopian society.
In other words-—there are no Natural Laws (basis of what made America great and originated Common Law in England-—only possible with a Christian paradigm.
Marxists throw out Common Sense and the idea of God. It is what is killing America and American Legal System (Right Reason is about logic, reason, common sense) and the idea of Supra Positive Law which only comes from the Judeo/Christian God—Revelation.
Post-Constitutional Republic—under zero—as Mark Levine calls it-—is unconstitutional-—as is using NO “Common Sense” like in the promotion of sodomy or “homosexual marriage”. Ideas that throw Natural Laws (and common sense) UPSIDE DOWN. On purpose, by Marxists to destroy order and create chaos and No Rule of Law and eliminate the Natural Family so children will be emotional and intellectual cripples and brainwashed and conditioned by the State like “Julia”.
We need to return to the intent and meaning of the Constitution. Throw out all laws not aligned to the principles in the Constitution. As John Marshall said—all such “laws” which ignore the Constitutional principles (Supreme Law of the Land) are “null and void”. We need to make judges stick to their oaths or be impeached.
Common sense....like drill baby drill??
Complying with Federal Regulations costs business $1 trillion/ year. Set a goal to cut that cost 20%/year for the next 5 years.
“Common Sense” has a different meaning for people not intent on destroying this country.
