President Obama’s push for his jobs plan will span months

Senior administration officials say the president will be making his case for Congress to pass his jobs plan for much of the rest of the year, taking his message outside Washington as he has in recent days, visiting Virginia Friday, Ohio Tuesday and North Carolina Wednesday. The push will include another bus tour, though it is not yet scheduled, officials say, and will target regional media, including local radio stations, with ads. The president will travel to non-battleground states to make his case for “The American Jobs Act,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Monday, though officials won’t yet say which non-swing states he will visit.

    Obama's "JOBS" plans have already failed or haven't you people noticed already.

    Doing the same thing over and over while expecting a different result.......................I'm sure you get the idea.

      I certainly do understand. What I understand the most is that Republicans are standing in the way of real progress for the American people. It is an insult to America when Congress puts their jobs before doing the right thing for the country. Stop concentrating on defeating the President and help pass the jobs bill that will put our people back to work.

    After November 2012, he won't have to worry about it any more.

    Before Congress gives the additional $477 billion of the people’s money to Obama to parse out, a full accounting ot the last $1.5 TRILLION dollars needs to be done. One of his contributors is set to gain up to $500 million on a failed solar energy company. The White House appears to be close to the people running that California company- Solyndra . How many other situations are like that one. Shameful at best, criminal at worse. Follow the money if you dare!

    Yeah ... Obama ... continue to feverishly HARD sell your failing policies to Americans, instead of spending your time fulfilling your duties as president, from the last time your were elected. Your strategy of pandering to the free loaders, and malcontents could possibly work. After all, appealing to the lowest common denominator provides you with a huge audience ... even if the results of your self-serving efforts will be to transform America into mediocrity.

    A very small percent of Americans are free loaders as you call them. Most just need a break. Obama is trying hard to help all people but can't if Republicans keep being unproductive. And by the way, the"free loaders" come in all sizes, shapes,religions, ideas, cultures and colors. Obama is the best thing that has ever happened to America whether it is recognized or not.Republicans will only look out for number one and the rich. Obama will lift our country up . He needs us and he needs Congress.

    It seems mighty odd that all the OBAMA-HATERS keep coming to the blog delivering their hopes and wishes, even their predictions, haughtily that he has 'failed', and not be re-elected in 2012. Ever since he took the oath, they started on their 'trek' to sabatoge and cause him to fail! Outside of denigrating, dismissive, degrading, denouncing, disdainful, disrespectful lip/blog-service, they must be afraid it's not going to be enough! Repitition doesn't work all the time folks! Give it up! OBAMA/BIDEN 2012!
