By what President Obama said on September 8, 2011, it's obvious he cares a great deal about getting Americans back to work. You can tell that by listening to just a very small amount of the speech he gave, introducing the American Jobs Act to Congress.
Sadly, it appears that the entire field of 2012 Republican contenders for the Presidency don't quite have the same topics in focus, as you could tell by just a few moments of one of their recent debates.
Take a minute (OK, 63 seconds) and listen to both the current President and those who want the job in 2012 - back to back - and see if what they care about is what you care about.
When they show you who they are... believe them.
