This afternoon, President Obama made the trip across town to the Washington Auto Show to look at some of the incredible new vehicles being built by Detroit.
There, he told reporters:

The fact that GM is back, number one, I think shows the kind of turnaround that's possible when it comes to American manufacturing.
