(CNN) – The day before he kicks off a four-day marathon of Inauguration-related events in the nation’s capital, President-elect Barack Obama will head to Ohio to tout his economic recovery plan.
Friday, Obama will travel to Bedford Heights, Ohio to tour Cardinal Fastener & Specialty Company, a company that uses only American made items to manufacture parts used to construct wind turbines. He will meet with workers on the factory floor to discuss his economic stimulus proposals, officially known as the "American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan."
Obama has said his economic stimulus plan aims to save or create three to four million American jobs overall. His plan would also try to create a half million jobs by investing in clean energy, like wind power.
The president-elect and his economic team have been meeting with members of Congress about the plan for days, but a final solution is still in the works.
This will be Obama’s last trip to Ohio as president-elect. The next day, Obama will travel from Philadelphia to Washington, DC to kick-off Inauguration weekend.
Good move PE Obama....Ohio has been experiencing the 'recession' alot longer than most of us in America.....about the only thing progessing in Ohio is the shelter bed count so it makes sense to get them back on their feet first....and with the 'green' agenda to boot! Wise move.
Barack Obama! Will go down in Black History.... The Man who promised so Much, and Delivered so Little....
Reply to Griff:
Wish we all had your clairvoyant skills as he has NOT yet started his term; but then again we just have to take your word for it...
Is he going to see "Joe the Plumber" or is he still in Gaza?
bush is also a man who promised so much and delivered less than nothing.
PE BO has a much tougher road with the way bush left this country.
take your racism elsewhere...like USA Today
Very smart. Americans need to be reminded of how important it is to buy American-made goods. Otherwise, we'll ALL be out of work!
Griff...does it hurt to be so negative?
Griff, give it up. Barack HUSSIEN Obama will go down in "History" as the greastest President. He has a lot to clean up behind Bush but, he will get the job done. We are all in this together and you will benefit from his success. Get on board or silence !
PE Obama has got what it takes......
Our Union is divided and that can be seen by the number of hateful comments posted on this board each and every day. Twenty years of partisan warfare by the Clintons and Bushes, liberals and conservatives, Republican and Democrats, the right and the left and the haves and have nots have left us bloodied, battered, and cynical. When a leader now calls upon us to be better than we are, instead of reaching higher, we pull him or her down into the mire. We rip the wings off our better angels, we blame instead of help and we curse the darkness rather than light the candle. Godspeed President Obama, change begins next Tuesday and I am there with you every step of the way.
Griff: Why so negative. Everybody give Griff a blog hug...It will be ok.
Careful, Griff your ignorance is showing. He has already made history. American History. Maybe I should have said your prejudice is showing
Someone has to say it: You're a racist pig.
Griff get a grip you Low Life.
Is he still trying to win there? Or is his train changing directions and leaving from there–no wait, Lincoln didn't leave from there did he?
BO will stop off in Chicago to visit the rest of his scum bag buddies that have not made it to Washington yet!
Since you're blabbing all this information CNN, I hope the new prez is safe in Ohio. Personally, I like the fact that he travels to different states, but it does worry me when we know so much about his itinerery. There are some whacko people out there.
Hey Griff –
go to the nurses' station in the psycho ward where you live and grab a pair of safety scissors. Get some old construction paper and make yourself a pretty hat. Oh....and find someone to help you spell
RACISTS DUNCE and write it on the pretty hat. Put the hat on and go stand in the corner......you small-minded moron.
I am from Ohio and I am pumped about all the jobs he says he can bring to Ohio. He better deliver on what he promised, that is how he won our state. WE NEED THOSE HIGH PAYING JOBS NOW!!!!!!
XXOOXX; there now, feel better? Good, now go take a nap.
How nice of Obama to stop by for a visit to our wonderful, historical, state. Our good Gov. Strickland will be ready to get our needy state going, again.
I don't care if you all like him or not. I think he will be remember for he will be remember for I don't know what he will be remember for. Tell you the truth I don't know who he is.
Your present personality is much more coherent than the others, but seems to be more sinister than the other of your multiple personalities. I think I like the other one better... more dreamy and poetic, sort of.
Be careful not to choke on your own bile.
