Democracy Now: Obama Calls for “Economic Patriotism” in Virginia Address

President Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney each campaigned Thursday in the hotly contested battleground state of Virginia. Both candidates attempted to court Virginia’s large population of military voters. In an address in the military town of Virginia Beach, Obama called for what he termed “economic patriotism.”

President Obama: “You know, during — during campaign season, you always hear a lot about patriotism. Well, you know what, it’s time for a new economic patriotism. And economic patriotism rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong and thriving middle-class.”
