Obama takes jobs bill push to North Carolina

Raleigh, North Carolina (CNN) - President Barack Obama took the push for his $447 billion jobs plan to the politically pivotal state of North Carolina Wednesday, telling an enthusiastic college crowd that it's time to "finally get Washington to act."

"If you're in favor of America's job creators, this is your bill," Obama told an audience in a campaign-style setting at North Carolina State University in Raleigh. "The time for hand-wringing is over. ... We've got to pass this bill right away."

    Love the way Obama supporters claim Republicans are nothing more than obstructionists and haters – as if they invented today's "do nothing" Washington politics. If true, GOP learned it from Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats (read your history – you need only go back to 2006).
