President Barack Obama was back at North Carolina State University to talk about jobs. But this time the speech was more about what he could do without Congress instead of what he’d like done legislatively this year. The event was part of what the White House is calling a “year of action.” Wednesday’s announcement of the first of three “manufacturing innovation institutes” follows through on a proposal the president made during his 2012 State of the Union address. It is also an example of one of the type of partnerships he hopes to facilitate with, as he put it Tuesday, his pen and his phone.
