President Obama Begins Day in Greensboro

President Obama continues a bus tour through North Carolina today. Will Michaels reports.

Mr. Obama speaks today at Guilford Technical Community College near Greensboro. His three-day bus tour started yesterday in Asheville. It's the third time the president has visited North Carolina since June. He spoke at a high school in Wilkesboro before making other stops in Marion and Boone. Mr. Obama again touted his jobs bill. He said he would break up the legislation into smaller parts and ask Congress to approve them individually.

The president won North Carolina in the 2008 election, but he didn't mention next year's race. He told the crowd in Asheville he is more worried about the next 13 months. An Elon University poll shows 51 percent of North Carolina disapproves of his job performance.
