Speaking to reporters at a sparsely attended press conference Thursday, Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann delivered a response to President Barack Obama's jobs speech.

"Even if the President's plan passes, we already know it will fail," she said, offering her own nine-point plan.

During questions, Bachmann told reporters that her response to the president was not "campaign related."

"This is the president who called 535 members of Congress to hear what I believe was nothing more than political speech," she remarked. "It's an unfortunate plan the president has put forward because it is a plan in all likelihood, that will fail."

"It is so misguided of the President to just put forward a retread of everything he has put forward before that has failed," Bachmann asserted. "This is clearly the President not listening to the American people."

"You don't create jobs until you grow the economy. That's how it works in the real world. I've been a part of the real world for all throughout my life."

The Congresswoman explained that she had not been able to attend the President's speech in person because of bad road conditions.

"I listened to it on the radio coming in and then I caught the tail end of it in my office."
