President Obama’s stump speech Thursday at Veterans Memorial Park in Manchester, N.H., was much like the speeches he’s given across battleground states in the last few weeks. Listen to it, and you’ll hear the short version of what the president promises to accomplish in a second term. It’s not much.
“I will not be satisfied until everybody who wants to work hard can find a job,” the president told the crowd. To make that happen, he promised to do five things.
First, he would “send fewer jobs overseas [and] sell more products overseas.” He proposed to “reward companies that are investing right here” in order to “create good jobs and provide security for the middle class.”
