Geee Posted January 15, 2013 Share Posted January 15, 2013 Investors Business Daily: Jobs: Just two months after saying job creation was his "top priority," it's suddenly nowhere on President Obama's agenda. Instead, Obama is pushing policies designed only to score political points against Republicans. At a press conference exactly two months ago, Obama stood before reporters and opened his remarks by saying that "our top priority has to be jobs and growth." "We've got to build on the progress that we've made," he said, "because this nation succeeds when we've got a growing, thriving middle class." That declaration shouldn't have been a surprise to anyone. Obama ran his re-election campaign vowing to focus on job creation and the middle class. His second-term agenda booklet was titled "A Plan for Jobs." And on election night, he promised to "focus on your jobs, not ours." Voters made clear that the economy was their top priority as well. Election Day exit polls found that 59% of voters ranked the economy as the nation's top issue. Nothing else came close. And the two biggest economic issues were jobs and wages.
