Mr. President, Here’s My Resume, Where’s My Job?: Caroline Baum

Asked whether President Barack Obama has a clear plan for creating jobs, 53 percent of the respondents to a recent New York Times/CBS poll said no.

The 881 registered voters contacted by telephone Sept. 10-14 weren’t asked whether job creation is, or should be, part of the president’s job description. Short of hiring a White House chef, a dog walker for Bo and an urban farmer (organic) to tend Michelle’s vegetable garden, the president isn’t a source of jobs.
