Jobs on the Line (his Included)

Obama Jobs Helber AP

This photo, taken in Richmond the day after Obama’s jobs address to Congress (and the day before BHO played it again in Boehner’s backyard), has had a wide footprint. I’m wondering what the meta is, though. IE:

1. Not messin’.

2. Mad as hell … and not giving in anymore.

3. Grab hold (for Congress end-around).

4. Heat’s there, but it’s still a reach.

Obama is urging voters to get behind his new jobs bill and pressure lawmakers to pass it, delivering the message on the home turf of one of his chief GOP antagonists.)
