Obama Coming To NC To Pitch Jobs Plan

President Barack Obama will travel to North Carolina next week to pitch his new jobs plan, his third stop on a sales tour to get voters behind the proposal.

The White House says the trip to the Raleigh-Durham area will be Wednesday. On Tuesday Obama heads to Columbus, Ohio. He made his first pitch Friday in Richmond, Va., a day after presenting the nearly $450 billion plan in a speech to Congress.

Obama's travels are taking him to politically important states and GOP-friendly territory. North Carolina is traditionally Republican but Obama won the state in 2008.

    Yes I know what acorn did, but what does that half to do with him coming to dicuss jobs, so I guess I should get angry when any person from the gop comes to dicuss a issue because of nixon and watergate, the former governor of sc that was cheating on his wife, even that has nothing to do with that gop member I should put them all in one group right,.

      You seem to have forgotten Edwards and Clinton. Was it dimentia or conveinence? You had better accept the fact that this bill is DOA as its another stimulus failure. Government doesn't create jobs...the private sector does. This is the flawed nature of Obama, he really doesn't know what to do...

      I agree! I want to know where not to be. I would only call him a liar once again and leave in disdain....Even the left has a disdain for him...Clinton was smarter and moved to the middle, Obama refuses to leave the ship after the ice berg strike...

    I have a question, if I make up lies on the president, spread hate, and show proof that I did not finish highschool, Also that can hardly speak english, I live in a trailer, can I run for gop spot as president, or be a tea party leader, then yall could give me all your money while I shout non sense.

      No but I'm pretty sure this allows you to continue to be a Democrat.

      Actually, an upstanding democrat in good graces with the president. Infact, you could get a cabinet position with that comment. I don't think you would want to take on the GOP president...they would throw you out...they like honest people.....How is that hope and change stuff going for ya?

      Why would a Democrat run for president as a Republican or want to join the Tea Party? It seems like the Democrats did a fine job of what you just described the last election and are still doing it to this day.

    It would not matter to some people if he offered them a slice of apple pie they would complain about that,. I guess once you live in the backwoods of the south so long it's hard to open your mind a see he is trying to help you,. And to the person that said something about acorn, that only shows my point, what does that have to do with anything, I'am so glad I'am young enough not to have this old south way of thinking.

      Waht does ACORN have to do with it. Are you totally ignorant of the fact that ACORN illegally registered people to vote. And if you look at Mr Obamas help he is quick to help unions but not so anyone else.

        Misty is right, what does ACORN have to do with President Obama coming to NC? If you would pay attention his jobs bill will also benefit small business, and stop giving tax breaks to companies that ship jobs overseas. Did you even listen to the speech, or were you still overwhelmed with the GOP clown show. Your no Frank Sinatra, more like Frank Drebin.

    Like the head of the Republican Party, Rush Limbaugh, and the minority leader of the Senate, Mitch McConnell, many on this board don't want Obama to succeed. The health of this nation means nothing to them and the removal of Obama means everything. The only thing to look forward to from a Republican president would be the further widening of the gap between rich and poor.

        And when it came to his administrations attempts to water down the Bill of Rights, we were right to want him to "fail" and the SCOTUS decisions that brand his attempt "failure" are a relief to hear about. That's entirely different from wanting the economy to fail just due to political opposition to the concept of government regulation.

      I agree with the anon poster, what comes around goes around. The only problem, Bush was popular after his first term...Obama is in the dumps at 20% and falling. If gas prices stay high and unemployment stays high...better figure on which republican president you want. Oh, and most of us are showing the same respect to Obama that you did with your remarks on Bush....I liked Bush and Obama, however, Obama is no leader.
