Obama talks economy in Tuesday visit to Albany complex

Washington (CNN) – On the heels of disappointing jobs numbers, the White House says President Barack Obama will travel Tuesday to Albany, New York, where he'll deliver remarks on the economy.

The president is scheduled to visit the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering’s (CNSE) NanoTech Complex, according to a senior administration official.

The official describes the facility as a "research, development, prototyping and educational facility."

It's essentially an incubation hub for corporate partners such as IBM, Intel, GlobalFoundries and Applied Materials.

The event was originally planned to be held at GlobalFoundries in Malta, New York, but the official said due to "logistical reasons" plans changed.

    Investment in research of this type is essential to good job creation longer term.

  8. The Greedy Old Pigs declared class war on US!

    The GOBP cult plan, as reflected by the Rmoney and Paul "The Undertaker" Ryan proposals, are deficit INCREASE plans. Only President Obama and Ron Paul have proposed deficit REDUCTION plans. So it's pretty ludicrous for the GOBP cult to be trotting out their mindless true believers to spout their nonsense about "fiscal responsibility" when history, and the GOBP cult's own proposals, demonstrate the GOBP cult's massive failure in the "fiscal responsibility" department.

    Still trying to get the uninformed young fools to vote for you huh? Why don't you talk to them about how you have killed any chances they may have to get a job once they graduate? The LAST person that should be voting for Obama is a young person. Besides killing the jobs, he's wrecking their future with endless trillions in debt. But they are too young and uninformed to realize this. Their parents are failing them by failing to clue them in to what Obama is doing to their future.

    Wonder if he told the truth that he don't know what to do to fix the economy. The bad jobs report is just more proof of that.

    The job numbers were down but still gaining jobs. Republicans are long on attacks and slamming and very short on solutions.

    Any Tom, Dick or Harry can slam. Romney is either afraid to say what he truly wants to to because he knows he will lose votes or he has no clue what he is going to do. Just saying you will do the opposite has to be one of the dumbest things a Presidential Candidate can say. For someone who is supposed to be a business genius he sure isn't acting like one.
