Oh wait, he made no mention of the Ukraine at all. Let’s move on to the important issues.
President Obama is touting recent executive actions he took on manufacturing in his weekly address, arguing that as Congress dallies he’s creating jobs.
“We need to do more to make America a magnet for good jobs for the future,” Obama said. “And in this year of action, where Congress won’t do that, I will do whatever I can to expand opportunity for more Americans. This week, I took two actions to attract new jobs to America – jobs in American manufacturing, and jobs rebuilding America’s infrastructure.”
Obama promoted the launch of two new high-tech manufacturing hubs in Chicago and Detroit — “places where businesses and universities will partner to turn groundbreaking research into real-world goods Made in America” — and a new initiative to improve the nation’s infrastructure dubbed Rebuilding America.
Year of action, yo! It’s almost like he can’t blink and chew gum at the same time.
