Saying that the country's infrastructure needs work and the time for action is now, President Obama offered a hint of the ideas he'll be putting forth this Thursday to create jobs. Obama is expected to argue that the government must do more to spur job growth, investment and economic expansion.
However, even with the economy slowing, many are unsure if lawmakers are going to be able to agree on any of the proposals Obama may detail this week. Many of the people around Obama have adopted a "give 'em hell" style speech to pressure lawmakers into cooperating, but it's unclear as to whether the president will embrace this type of style.
Today on American Morning, Hilary Rosen, CNN political contributor and Ron Brownstein, CNN senior political analyst, discuss if Obama needs to take a hard stance in his jobs speech.
