We Might Be Building Iron Man

Yesterday, President Obama announced new public-private manufacturing innovation institutes -- one in Chicago and one in the Detroit area -- that will help attract the types of high-quality jobs that a growing middle class requires.

But the President had another announcement, too:

I'm here to announce that we're building Iron Man. I'm going to blast off in a second... this has been a secret project we've been working on for a long time. Not really. Maybe. It's classified.

Find out more about yesterday's announcement and Iron Man. Maybe.
