Official White House Photo by Pete Souza(BOISE, Idaho) — President Obama resumed his barnstorming tour of the U.S. to promote his second-term agenda with a visit to Boise, Idaho, Wednesday.
During his half-hour speech on the campus of Boise State University, the president repeated many of the same themes from his State of the Union address the night before.
Obama spoke of the nation’s economic resurgence leading to the best growth in a decade despite critics fighting his policies at every turn.
To drive his point home, the president peppered his remarks with football analogies before an appreciative audience that included, “The verdict is clear. The ruling on the field stands. Middle class economics works. Expanding opportunity works.”
Beforehand, Obama toured Boise State’s New Product Development Lab to view products local industries and entrepreneurs develop and market with the assistance of students.
This was Obama’s first visit to Idaho as president, meaning he’s made speeches in 47 states. He has yet set to foot in South Carolina, Utah and South Dakota during his six years in office.
