We've all seen President Obama field questions from the press about the economy, but yesterday he took his series of discussions on the economy to a new arena — the backyard. That's right, Obama met with concerned citizens in Joe and Rhonda Weithman's backyard in Columbus, Ohio.

During this get-together, Obama discussed how clean energy can help transform our nation's economy and his administration's focus on boosting the nation's educational system to prepare today's students for tomorrow's green jobs.
