President Barack Obama blasted Republicans over taxes yesterday as he launched a bus tour of the U.S. Midwest to tout his job-growth strategy and distance himself from anger toward Washington that could dent his 2012 re-election hopes.

The three-day trip takes him to Minnesota, Iowa and Illinois, states he won in the 2008 presidential election, although Iowa recently has been seeing a lot of Republicans vying to battle him for the White House next year.

The White House says Obama is on a listening tour to hear from Americans about the economy and talk about how to boost jobs and hiring.
