In an attempt to draw a clear contrast between himself and his Republican opponent, President Obama on Thursday touted his supposed “rescue” of the auto industry and claimed that he intends to do the same for “every industry”:
“I said, I believe in American workers, I believe in this this American industry, and now the American auto industry has come roaring back,” the president said during a campaign speech in Pueblo, Colo. “Now I want to do the same thing with manufacturing jobs, not just in the auto industry, but in every industry.”
“I don’t want those jobs taking root in places like China, I want those jobs taking root in places like Pueblo,” he added.
The president also advocated the renewal of tax credits for “green” energy projects and spoke about establishing credits for companies that bring jobs back from overseas.
“Gov. Romney brags about his private sector experience, but it was mostly invested in companies, some of which were called ‘pioneers of outsourcing,’” the president said. “I don’t want to be a pioneer of outsourcing. I want to insource.”
