ABC News Rachel Martin and Sunlen Miller Report: President Obama said that on Labor Day its time to reaffirm the nations commitment to rebuild, and declared that the stimulus plan is working.
Speaking before the friendly crowd during the annual AFL-CIO Labor Day picnic in Cincinnati Ohio this afternoon, the President said that its time to ensure that the middle class remains the backbone of the economy, not just a vanishing ideal we celebrate a picnics once a year as summer turns to fall.
In rhetoric similar to the campaign trail, the President said this has been is an ideal that hes been fighting for since office, and pointed the finger at those who say he has not brought change yet.
Some people have already forgotten how bad it was just seven months ago. You noticed that. They have selective amnesia, the President joked in feisty remarks more reminiscent of candidate Obama.
The President defended his administrations efforts after inheriting an economy on the verge of collapse, and crafting a stimulus package that would put people back to work.
Our Recovery plan is working, Mr. Obama declared, The financial system has been saved from collapse. Home sales are up. We're seeing signs of life in the auto industry. Business investment is starting to stabilize. For the first time in 18 months, we're seeing growth in manufacturing. When was the last time you heard that here in United States of America?

Lets see if the libs can spin the truth when we near Christmas time, when the unemployment checks end and jobs are not to be found, 2 out of 5 are now jobless in California.
Wow! He’s astoundingly delusional.
Dude, they will be spinning such long into the 2012 presidential campaign. Bet.
CREATE JOBS....in USA industries that will support our energy needs...like coal, oil, gas.....Wind, solar and other cra*** solutions will take years and it means destroying working systems AND MORE DEBT....just like the CARS program.
IN THE MEANTIME...
really?? How high was that unemployment rate 7 months ago? A lot fewer were out of work then, thats for sure.
I had a job 7 months ago. I think Obama is literally insane.
“Sure the unemployment rate is officially 20% but it was much worse when Bush was President” Obama says. The MSM won’t challenge or correct him.
Remember how they screamed under GW when unemployment rose to 5.2?
Barry acknowledged the true unemployment numbers than tried to play off such by blaming the previous tenure of the previous administration? lulz!?
Barry is smoking some pretty bad arse stuff there.
Stability is established....
The socialist stimulus of historical proportion and greatness is working....our success must be attributed to the exalted oneness of the omnipotent Obama-inspired and glorious DOUGH FOR DICTATORS program....
Keep the expensive merchandise out of the display windows.....especially in Kalifornia....
Over 16 percent real unemployment. It’s way early to start calling it a recovery.
7 months ago the Unemployment rate was at 7.6% and we “HAD TO” pass the stimulus to keep it from getting above 8%.
9.6% = OBAMA’S ECONOMY, OBAMA’S FAILURE.
Commies messing up commies over money, shock ahroo.
Michigan has a 15% unemployment rate and Detroit has a rate of 28.9%, an all-time record high. Been under Democrat rule for WAY too long.
