Obama says Path Forward Won't be Quick or Easy

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Preaching patience, President Barack Obama is telling voters at the Democratic National Convention that solving many of the nation's toughest challenges will take a few years.

Obama says that Republicans are calling for tax cuts to solve every problem. While he supported breaks for the middle class, he says he doesn't believe tax cuts for the wealthy would generate jobs or pay down the deficit.

Obama say job gains in the manufacturing sector over the last two years have reversed a decade of declines. He says the nation needs to invest in job training and education because it's the gateway to a middle-class life.

On foreign policy, Obama accused Republican challenger Mitt Romney of wanting to take the nation back to what he called an era of blustering and blundering.
