Jamestown, NC - President Barack Obama continued to sell his American Jobs Act Tuesday in the Triad. The President toured Guilford Technical Community College in Jamestown, before delivering a speech to a large crowd at the Ragsdale YMCA.
President Obama told people in our state he's going to break up his jobs bill into smaller parts and ask Congress to approve them individually.
Rebecca Klase who is a political professor with Greensboro College joined Tracey McCain today on the Good Morning Show to talk about whether that's a good strategy.
"It's hard to tell. The President's bill as a whole has already been shot down once," said Klase. "Anything that the President does at this point can be seen as campaigning or simply doing the job of the President."
Klase also compared the President's bus tour to a marketing campaign.
"The President is trying to sell his bill to Congress. And the best way to sell a bill to Congress is to sell it to the American people. He wants those phones to buzz those emails to come in and for people all around the country to say, 'hey, this is a good idea.'"
From here the President continues to push his jobs message in Virginia. He'll make two stops Wednesday. First in Hampton and then he'll stop at a firehouse in North Chesterfield, VA.
