JAMESTOWN, NC (AP) — President Barack Obama says he’s touring Republican areas of North Carolina for a simple reason. “I’m the president,” he says.

Visiting Jamestown on Tuesday to continue pressing his ideas for creating jobs, Mr. Obama said he’s not the president of Democrats or the president of Republicans. He says he’s the president of all Americans who are going through tough economic times together.

Added Obama: “We don’t need a Republican jobs act or a Democratic jobs act. We need to put people back to work right now.”

Senate Republicans blocked Obama’s jobs bill last week. Obama says lawmakers will now break up his $447 billion jobs bill, a package of targeted tax cuts and direct spending proposals, and vote on the individual components.

I find it funny that this article says Senate Republicans. Yes, they were partially responsible, but what you failed to acknowledge is that our “dear” President could not even muster enough backing from HIS OWN PARTY to pass said bill. You should probably do a better job of reporting from a less bias standpoint. You, after all, are only a local channel and don’t think you can really afford to lose followers simply because of biased reporting. Be professional.
