Obama wants voters 'fired up'?

President Obama tried Sunday to recapture some of the excitement of his 2008 campaign, imploring voters not to reward what he called Republican cynicism and incompetence by sitting out the Nov. 2 elections.

The president delivered a stinging indictment of the GOP record to several thousand people in Philadelphia's Germantown neighborhood.

Obama acknowledged that many Americans are frustrated, especially about the economy. He said Republicans have decided "to ride that frustration and anger" without providing solutions. And he said congressional Republicans deliberately opposed his administration and the Democratic majority on almost every issue.

When the 10+% of American workers who have been fired find new jobs, they'll get "fired up" in support of Obama.

In the interim, while unemployment stays flat at record high levels, with no relief in sight, Obama needs to get back to his office and do his job. He was elected to be president of all Americans, working full time at solving our problems, not campaigning full time for his partisan buddies and fundraising full time from those seeking corrupt favors from his administration.
