Obama Should Focus on Jobs: Today's Outrage

Now, just like a year ago, the public's priorities for Obama and Congress are to shore up the economy, rev up the job creation engine and defend us from terrorists, according to a recent Pew poll.

Nothing else comes close, not even health care or financial regulation.

The bottom line is that beating up on Bank of America (BAC - Get Report), Goldman Sachs (GS - Get Report) or Citigroup (C - Get Report) won't score as many points with the public as hunkering down on some good old-fashioned economic packages.

Job creation is the surest indicator of whether economic improvements are underway, and so far we're not seeing the results.
