On Friday I awoke to the sound of helicopters flying low over my home in Portland. Things really get shaken up around here when the President comes to town.
In this video, President Obama addresses on the importance of education to this nation’s global competitiveness:
Companies like Intel are proving that we can compete – that instead of just being a nation that buys what’s made overseas, we can make things in America and sell them around the globe. Winning this competition depends on the ingenuity and creativity of our private sector – which was on display in my visit today. But it’s also going to depend on what we do as a nation to make America the best place on earth to do business.
