Obama touts manufacturing rebound in Iowa visit

(CNN) - President Barack Obama took his economic recovery message on the road Tuesday, telling a group of manufacturing workers in Iowa that while times remain tough, the administration has made a series of critical investments in the country's long-term development.

He also knocked Washington's harsh partisan environment, saying that lawmakers need to start working more as a team for the country's common good.

    To me these are all lies now. The results for the economy and the debt speak for themselves. Obama, just like Bush is getting America over their eyeballs in debt, while only catering to the international bankers. Mayer Amschel Rotschild already said: give me control of a nation's money and I care not about her laws. That is exactly what is going on! Ron Paul's Revolution may be able to stop the bleeding. Wake up America!

    the administration has made a series of critical investments in the country's long-term development.
    ===============================================================================
    After wasting nearly a TRILLION dollars on a bogus "stimulus package", we are supposed to believe Obama knows what he is doing with these "critical investments". Next joke.

    saying that lawmakers need to start working more as a team for the country's common good.
    ==========================================================================
    Another joke from a president that didn't meet with Republicans for the first two years of his term. Obama plays for only ONE team, Team Obama.

    America finds itself in this predicament because of a short-term, Wall Street inspired, quarter-to-quarter focus. Despite what some GOP cheerleaders whould have you believe, a "corporate" focus is NOT what we need.

    I am glad we have a President that has the vision, foresight and discipline to do the "blocking & tackling" actions required to allow for a lasting, sustainable robust US economy. It takes time to arrest the fundamental declines that have occured over the past 30 years; declines which have staggnated income growth of the lower & middle classes.

    Education reform that produces a 30-year stream of students that are worldclass in math, science, innovative thinking, true teamwork and continuous improvement are fundamental to our ability to develop and build [here in America] new products that people will want to buy. New items like I-PADS & High-milleage Hybrids vehicles fill marketplace needs; people want them; jobs are created. Lightweight, low power consumption, HD-LCD TV's steal market share from old cathode-ray technology sets. This takes jobs from the old and gives them to the new thinkers. Tax cuts to "job-creators" or EPA regulations have NOTHING TO DO with creating these jobs.

    What planet does this guy live on anyways???? Talk about being OUT OF TOUCH WITH REALITY! Add this to the "we aren't involved in hostilities in Libya" and we have reason to demand that Obama under go psychiatric evaluation to determine competency.

    Obama needs to a reality check when it comes to manufacturing jobs. Our total jobs dropped by nearly a half over the past decade. He needs to let the people know this so they can understand what happened to our economy and why the economy will be slow to recover, if it ever will. Without some new manufacturing sector that stays within our borders, we will never again see an economy like we did in the past.

    So he signs into law a debt ceiling, spends right past it in 2 years and then blames the Republicans for the chaos that may become of not being able to borrow more money?!? And then when the Republicans agree to raise the debt ceiling...again... as long as the increase is balanced with spending cuts, Obama takes that opportunity to demand a tax increase? The Republicans are cooperating but doing it responsibly, so why don't we see the Administration finally walk the talk? The Republicans are giving the Administration plenty of cooperation.

    Did he say this is the summer of recovery again? Isn't it funny how the liberal media doesn't report that last summer was supposed to be the summer of recovery? Isn't is even stranger when a liberal hack like Jon Stewart mimics Herman Cain in a contrived "Amo & Andy" voice and the liberal media doesn't even say a word. Where are teh Reverand Al and the Reverand Jesse? Must be hiding out in their hypocritical hole with the rest of the liberal media. Can you imagine the indignation if RusH Limbauh or Glen Beck did something like that. But then being liberal is being hypocritical and I guess even the libertards know that.
