President Barack Obama attempted to turn the heat back on Mitt Romney and Congress on Saturday as he sought to divert attention away from the third consecutive month of lacklustre jobs reports.

In his weekly address to the nation, the president blamed intransigence in Washington for slowing the progress of measures aimed at getting Americans back to work.

Meanwhile a new campaign video released Saturday accused his Republican rival for the White House of profiting from the outsourcing of US jobs to India and the far east.

The 30-second attack ad also seeks to undermine Romney's claim that he will get tough on China over its trading practices and alleged currency manipulation should he be elected president in November.

The Republican presidential candidate has accused the White House of failing to act over measures by Beijing that have hurt domestic companies.

In the ad released Saturday, Romney is seen at a campaign debate stating that "the Chinese are smiling all the way to the bank, taking our jobs and taking a lot of our future".

"He made a fortune letting it happen," a narrator adds

The claim follows reports in the Washington Post this week that during his time at private equity firm Bain Capital, Romney was directly involved in decisions that led to the outsourcing of American jobs in a bid to cut costs.

    A country at war cannot sustain itself on a TMTR of 35% and tax loopholes such as a 15% Capital Gains tax even if Capital Gains brings you $10 Million per year and is your only source of income. Cons complain about Obama's $4 Trillion in added debt but fail to realize that $4 trillion in 2012 is equal to about $1.5 Trillion in "1980 Money" which means this Administration is spending about HALF of what the Reagan Administration spent... during PEACETIME. (Inflation factor 1980-2012 is between 2.4 and 5.3 depending on the type of spending)

    All Hail Norquist!

    YES, PRESIDENT OBAMA is right, the Republicans are to blame.
    The Republicans in Congress have signed a pledge to Grover Norquist to never raise taxes, even if it obstructs job creation.

    If a bill were presented that was guaranteed to create 20,000,000 jobs in exchange for a 1% reduction in the amount a person could write off in tax depreciation from their Yacht, Republicans are mandated to vote against it.

    All Hail Norquist!

    Wich means we continue tax breaks for the rich, while the poor and middle classes see cutbacks on vital government services.

    All Hail Norquist!
