AFL-CIO's Twitter question for Obama: 'Where are the jobs?'

(By Michael O'Brien, The Hill) - A top labor union echoed Republicans in their question for President Obama ahead of his Twitter town hall on Wednesday afternoon.

"Where are the jobs?" the AFL-CIO asked Obama on its Twitter page, picking up on a refrain more typical of angry Republican lawmakers than labor groups.

Obama is set to take questions Wednesday afternoon over Twitter; a series of non-White House moderators will select questions for the president, culled using "#AskObama" as a hashtag.
