But not with him, of course.

RICHMOND, Va. (USA Today) — President Obama came to the capital of Virginia today to campaign against the political culture of Washington while promoting his brand new $447 billion plan to boost the economy and create jobs.

“You have every right to be frustrated,” Obama told a friendly crowd at the University of Richmond, asking them to help pressure Congress to pass the package of tax cuts, construction projects and unemployment assistance known as the American Jobs Bill.

“I want you to call, I want you to e-mail, I want you to tweet,” Obama said as the crowed cheered. “I want you to fax, I want you to visit, I want you to Facebook . . . Send a carrier pigeon.”

Echoing a mantra he used during last night’s address to a joint session of Congress, Obama said: “Pass this bill now — let’s put folks to work.”

In his own effort to pressure Congress, Obama said the items in his jobs package have in the past received support from both Democrats and Republicans — a message aimed mostly at his Republican rivals. “Nothing radical in this bill,” he said.
