President to rediscover laser-like focus on jobs, infrastructure tomorrow!/markknoller/status/317418431236419584

It’s been 100 days since the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre and President Obama still hasn’t banned guns yet, but he assures us he hasn’t “forgotten about those kids.” We’d begun to suspect he had forgotten, though, about that important three-letter word that used to be thrown around during his first term: J-O-B-S. It has been nearly two years since Obama joked that “shovel-ready was not as shovel-ready as we expected.”

Tomorrow, though, Obama promises to campaign like it’s 2008 and recalibrate his laser-like focus on the economy during a visit to Miami, Fla.

Tomorrow: Pres Obama travels to Miami to make his case for jobs programs aimed at repairing & expanding nation’s infrastructure.

Pres Obama will tour a tunnel project at PortMiami and then deliver remarks about economic importance of funding infrastructure projects.

“We need to make smart, targeted investments to create jobs and boost our economy,” says WH spksmn @jearnest44 of the president’s proposals,

So, has the country’s dad plugged that hole in the economy yet? What’s the plan?

Asked if Pres Obama will unveil new infrastructure proposals, @jearnest44 says “I think that we’ve got a couple of tricks up our sleeve.”

@markknoller @jearnest44 Tricks, as in slight of hand, are not exactly what we’ve been waiting on. We’ve had those for the last 4+ years.

@markknoller Really then why didn’t he do it in 2009 with the first $800+ billion.

@markknoller kind of like what the 800 billion in surplus was supposed to do 4 years ago

Patience, please. You can’t change Washington from the inside, after all.
