The return of Candidate Obama
Yes he can politick well.
President Barack Obama got back in the campaign stump and out came the campaigner so many were happy to vote for in 2008.
He promised to fight for a $50 billion infrastructure programme to rebuild roads, railways and runways as a way to secure long term jobs growth and boost the still weak US economy.
He accused Republicans of driving the US economy in to a ditch and said that now that the car has been pulled out of the ditch Republicans are complaining about the scratches.
He directly blamed Republicans for causing Americans’ hard economic times.
The $50 billion would if passed be the beginning of a six-year program of infrastructure improvements.
Republicans said NO.
