Obama cited several signs of positive growth in the economy. But he said there’s still more work to do and, in his words, “our focus cannot drift.”
Obama commented during a visit to a Baltimore company that makes digging and pumping equipment for the mining industry. The visit is part of a new effort by the president to focus on his ideas for growing the middle class.
The trip also came at the end of a week that found Obama consumed by a trio of political controversies, including the targeting of conservative political groups by the Internal Revenue Service.
