WASHINGTON, DC (AP) -- President Barack Obama will travel to Charlotte Wednesday to speak about the economy.

The trip keeps up Obama's weekly visits to politically important states, drawing attention to the economic recovery and steps aimed at sustaining it.

The White House has given no details on the trip. Obama promoted his energy agenda in Florida and New Hampshire over the past two weeks.

Obama narrowly won North Carolina in 2008, and advisers believe he has a shot there again. But the state has been hit hard by the economic downturn, ranking fourth among states with the highest unemployment at the end of the year.

He was last there on Dec. 14 on a visit to Fort Bragg.

I wonder

if he will comment on GM's apparent decision to ashcan the VOLT. That was the vehicle he touted which would save GM & help our Country free itself from foriegn oil dependency.

Obama address on economy

The very weak economic recovery experienced has occurred on its own, and is not due to any of the failed policies of the President. In fact, the administration's policies have delayed our economic growth, benefiting only those in the stock market.

Obama

There hasn't been a recovery. If we could recoup the money he and Lardache (she can't fit into Jordache) have spent on 6 vacations in 2 years we might have a chance at a recovery.

Obama

You're a real class act.

Things must be getting better, They are insulting his wife

Looks like you are getting left behind there John. While the rest of us are working,making money and paying taxes, you are sitting in front a screen all day with nothing more interesting to do than insult a man's wife.

R SIMMONS

You are commenting maybe you are on the screen everyday. How do you know he is on it everyday?? To set the record straight she is ugly and spending our tax money like it is free..

look at your State

there people go again blaming the President on jobs, looks like you need to look at your state, NC has let 2 major companies leave our area with over 1k plus jobs gone, now your fighting Titan from coming, so point the blame on somewhere else not Him, I don't agree with everything He does but this issue does not lie with Him, just look around each individual state and see.
