On his weekly address today, President Obama outlined some of his plans with a continued effort in Afghanistan, as well as how to bring the U.S. debt down to soften the currently economic climate. To wit:
Because of their bravery and dedication, the tide of war has turned in Afghanistan. The goal that I set - to defeat al Qaeda, and deny it a chance to rebuild - is within reach.
When addressing domestic plans, Obama said:
I've called on Congress to take the money we're no longer spending at war, use half of it to pay down our debt, and use the other half to rebuild America.
With summer on the horizon, the president's reelection bid will go into hyperdrive, with a rally today and stops in Seattle and Los Angeles.
