President Obama says he’s heading to the Baseball Hall of Fame to stress how tourism can lead to good-paying jobs.

In his weekly radio address, Obama says he will be in Cooperstown, N.Y., on Thursday.

“Because believe it or not, tourism is an export. And if we make it easier for more foreign visitors to visit and spend money at America’s attractions and unparalleled national parks, that helps local businesses and grows the economy for everyone,” Obama said.

...except when it involves elderly veterans in wheelchairs trying to visit the World War II Memorial virtually in the White House's backyard.    :whistle:

This is a revelation to him? You know, we might increase tourism if people could afford to buy gasoline to drive to America's attractions and unparalleled national parks, Barry. How about approving some oil drilling and the Keystone pipeline?
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)
