Obama’s Speech Today To Provide Glimpse At The Next Three Years

President Barack Obama is scheduled to deliver an economic speech Wednesday that could give an idea of what will consume the remainder of his second term.

Obama is set to give the remarks at an event hosted by the Center for American Progress scheduled for 11:15 a.m. ET in Washington, D.C.

The White House told the New York Times that Obama’s speech will serve as “a window into where the president will focus his energies over the next three years.”

According to the Times, Obama is expected to “press for initiatives to promote manufacturing, energy innovations, education, infrastructure projects and more.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
