Posted on 06/25/2011 5:37:07 AM PDT by tobyhill
President Barack Obama says technological innovations such as robots can help pump jobs into the economy and spur growth in clean energy and advanced manufacturing.
In his radio and Internet address Saturday, the president echoed a plan he unveiled Friday in Pittsburgh to join the federal government, universities and corporations and re-ignite American manufacturing with an emphasis on cutting-edge research and new technologies.
"Their mission is to come up with a way to get ideas from the drawing board to the manufacturing floor to the marketplace as swiftly as possible, which will help create quality jobs, and make our businesses more competitive," Obama said in his address, which was taped Friday during his visit to Carnegie Mellon University, where he saw a display of mini-robots that explore water and sewer pipes.
He also marveled at robots that can defuse a bomb, mow a lawn, even scrape old paint.
With growing interest from the military, businesses and consumers, the Carnegie Mellon Robotics Institute has more than 500 technical experts and a $65 million annual budget.

I like to mow grass.
He just said, days ago, that ATMS cost jobs. Does he even know what he is saying from day to day?
OK..ATM’s=bad but lawn mowing robots=good. I can’t keep up with this moron.
Hell, we got a roomba to sweep our floor. Why can’t she have a brother to mow the grass.
No, he really does think his voters are stupid, if it wasn’t so said it would be funny.
So you and your family decide to build a new house. You pick the lot, have a house designed andhave a contractor who begins working. But your teenage son wants to build a spaceship in the back yard. How about getting the fundamentals down first before reaching for the stars? Because he doesn’t have a clue about fundamentals and doesn’t care whether anyone else does either. This is what you get at the top when you hire someone with no practical experience with American culture and no clue about history beyond slavery or our fight against communism.
Obama’s ghetto version of how to find work works for his posse but not for mine.
What a jerk. He got ridiculed for his idiotic remarks about ATMs so now he’s trying to take the opposite approach.
One of the problems with Obama is not only that he’s evil and wants to destroy our country, but that he’s STOOOPID.
My hillbilly husband will have weekly robot races with his good friend Bud Weiser...
;) The Mrs.
And the media covers for our first AA president. A complete moron who is where he is because of the color of his skin.
He only confirms the thoughta many have about AA
Let us remember that to the simple mind of the Obamaloon, a wedge is an example of “advanced manufacturing”.
WTF? This is the same 0bama that was whining about how ATMs are killing US jobs and now he wants robots to mow our lawns?
0bama ... the poster child against affirmative action
“And the media covers for our first AA president. A complete moron who is where he is because of the color of his skin.

There are plenty of AAs out there more than capable of running the country.
Herman Cain is a good example.
I have robots to mow the lawn. We usually call them teenagers. Its probably one of the few times they are way from a tv or computer screen.
“...join the federal government, universities and corporations...”
The fascist department of central planning?
I’ve said it before and I’ve said it again. This is not policy as made in the “faculty lounge” as Rush Limbaugh is so fond of saying. This is policy made in the dorm room between bong hits. In my mind there is no other explanation.
Dude - you know what would be COOOOL? What if, like, we had a bunch of lawn mowing robots man, you know, that could mow the lawns and stuff? That would ROCK, man.
Zer0 wants more mind-numbed r0bots voting for him.
