Obama: Ohio economic crisis needs time to reverse

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama says the economic crisis that hit cities like Toledo and industrial states like Ohio built up over decades and will take years to reverse.

The president says it's important to have policies in place that will help manufacturing companies trying to rebound to sell their products at home and overseas. Obama says there is good news in the success Toledo has had becoming a national hub for solar energy research and manufacturing.

Obama made his comments to editors with The (Toledo) Blade and Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Friday in Washington, along with Blade and Post-Gazette publisher John Robinson Block.

The president spoke ahead of this week's Pittsburgh meeting of G-20, a group of industrialized and developing countries that comes together to discuss global economic issues.
