Because who doesn't want to take his 747 to Iowa at this time of year?, President Obama popped up in Iowa today.

And you'll never guess what he did.

He pleaded for yet more time to create new jobs and keep his.

Eight hundred and sixty-one days after popping up in Denver, of all places, to sign the Democratic Congress' $787-billion stimulus bill that was going to work almost immediately and absolutely keep unemployment below 8%, Obama offered another jobs speech today (full text below) with unemployment at 9.1%.

He admitted that things are not good for millions of Americans and said it was going to take even more time to do what his vice president promised would be happening 14 months ago.

How could the awful economic hole from you-know-who keep getting deeper 889 days after the guy fled back to Texas?
