President Obama, speaking today in North Carolina, said that "if you love me, you gotta help me pass this bill!"

Obama also suggested in today's remarks that bridges will fall if his jobs bill isn't passed:

Obama ran his 2008 campaign based on the notion that "the politics of fear" was hurting America.

Either way, the president was in full campaign mode today in North Carolina.
