CHICAGO - US President Barack Obama urged Democrats on Thursday to help him "finish the job" at the first events of his 2012 re-election bid, appealing for higher taxes on the wealthy and a rejection of Republican budget policies.

Obama, seeking to reignite the energy of supporters that propelled his candidacy in 2008, said "extraordinary progress" has been made during his two years in the White House but "we've still got work to do."

"If you're just as fired up now despite the fact that your candidate is a little older and a lot grayer, then I have every confidence that we're going to be able to finish the job," he said.
