Obama: Republicans just have bad ideas
The Associated Press
CHICAGO (AP) President Barack Obama says Republicans want what's best for America, but just have bad ideas that they keep recycling.
Obama is headlining a rally for Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn in Chicago. The Democrat is running for re-election in Obama's home state.
Obama says voters this year have a choice to make between two visions of America. He says the election comes down to the question of who will fight for the middle class.
Obama says Republicans always say no to ideas that would help the middle class. He's singling out fair pay, education and a proposed minimum wage hike.
Obama's made his first major campaign appearances of the year Sunday. Earlier, Obama spoke a rally in Maryland for Democratic candidate for governor Anthony Brown.
