WASHINGTON (AP) - Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour is accusing President Barack Obama of paying lip service to job creation.

The Republican governor, who is considering running for president, told a conservative gathering Saturday that the Democratic president's economic policies have been more hostile to job creation than any other administration he's seen.

Barbour says the country's problem is that it spends too much. And he says Obama would be wise to heed the lessons of governors throughout the nation who are cutting budgets to spur job growth.

He was the latest potential presidential candidate to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
