President Barack Obama speaks in the East Room of the White House in Washington, Monday, July 9, 2012. Facing sagging jobs numbers, President Barack Obama seeks to recast the election as a debate over tax fairness,  calling for a temporary tax cut extension but just for low and middle income earners. The president’s pitch is aimed at painting Mitt Romney as a protector of the rich while ramping up questions about the Republican challenger’s own wealth.  (AP Photo/Susan Walsh)
