Defiant Obama urges Congress to pass jobs bill

How tired are you of our President and his speeches. Please, Mr. President, please shut up and stop spending our money.

From Yahoo News:

ELYRIA, Ohio – A combative President Barack Obama exhorted Congress Friday to pass a new job-creation bill, taking a populist appeal to America's recession-racked Rust Belt in hopes of recapturing the energy of his campaign and moving his presidency beyond this week's blows.

Obama weaved angry us-against-them rhetoric throughout the day, telling a town hall audience that he "will never stop fighting" for an economy that works for the hard-working, not just those already well off.

"This isn't about me. This is about you," Obama shouted in a rousing defense of his presidency and not-so-subtle slaps at his critics. "I think that I win when you win. That's how I think about it."

No, it is all about you and your agenda, Mr. President. It's about you and your fellow "progressives" marching us into commie hell.

So in his at the town hall meeting at Lorain County Community College near Cleveland, the president assailed Washington and Wall Street alike, hoping to connect with public's frustration and position himself as the solution — not the problem.

He strongly defended unpopular actions he has taken to bail out banks and insurers and to rescue automakers from collapse. Such measures have not gone over well in many quarters, derided as expanding government and swelling the deficit while many on Main Street still walk unemployment lines.
