Obama said his central responsibility as president is to restore the nation's fragile economy and to help put the millions of people who lost jobs back to work. The president said that calls for strengthening education and job training, jump-starting industries that create jobs, ending dependence on foreign oil, unleashing innovation and nurturing ideas from entrepreneurs.
