Obama: We can't get distracted

Baltimore (CNN) – After a week where the Obama administration appeared knocked off course by a number of controversies, President Barack Obama sought to get back on track Friday by focusing on his jobs agenda.

Period," he said during a campaign-style stop at a dredge manufacturing company in Baltimore, the second leg of what the White House has dubbed his "Middle Class Jobs and Opportunity Tour."
