CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- President Barack Obama is planning to tell voters that they face the clearest choice of any time in a generation.
In excerpts of his speech scheduled Thursday night, Obama says the choice voters face won't be just between two candidates but between two different paths for the nation. He says he wouldn't pretend the path he is offering is quick or easy.
In a nod to voters who may have lost patience because of the struggling economy, Obama says it will take more than a few years to solve challenges that have built up for decades.
Obama will also spell out clear goals, including 1 million new manufacturing jobs by the end of 2016 and reducing the deficit by more than $4 trillion over the next decade.

    1 million new manufacturing jobs?? How, when other countries can do it at a fraction of the cost. Look at car companies. They sent many of their jobs overseas because the cost of manufacturing would double the cost of a car! Unions want the best pay, benefits, and promises and don't care what it costs. That cost has to be figured in to manufacturing. What about the people who don't excel, or desire to work, in manufacturing. Should we just take a curbside seat??
