Channeling Iron Man, Obama announces Midwest manufacturing hubs

WASHINGTON, Feb 25 (Reuters) – Joking that he would blast
off in an “Iron Man” suit, President Barack Obama on Tuesday
announced that two new manufacturing institutes aimed at
creating quality jobs would be located in the Midwest cities of
Chicago and Detroit.

the U.S. economy continues to recover from a brutal recession.
In the absence of a consensus in Congress on how to proceed, he
has pledged to act on his own when he can.
