SOTU Manufacturing Mentions

With 15 mentions of manufacturing in his 2012 State of the Union, President Obama spotlighted a segment of the economy worthy, for many reasons, to be spotlighted.

It caused me to look, though, at the President's three previous SOTU addresses. The total mentions of any variation of manufacturing was just five. Three in 2011, two in 2010, and zero in 2009.

I'll leave the judgement of that to readers, except to add this pondering thought: What changed? Was it manufacturing that changed or the President that did?
