Obama in Ohio to Rally the Base, Defend His Economic Policies

Hosted by

President Obama's handling of the economy is falling to new lows. Today he took time out from a fundraising trip to visit a leafy, middle-class neighborhood in Columbus, Ohio. Joe and Rhonda Weithman's backyard was as intimate a setting as possible with reporters and TV cameras looking on. The President reiterated the administration's success in growing the economy and labor market, but admitted that "that progress hasn't been fast enough." Mark Niquette reports on politics for the Columbus Dispatch.
