FILE - In this June 6, 2013, file photo. President Barack Obama gestures while speaking at Mooresville Middle School in Mooresville, N.C. Obama traveled to Mooresville, N.C. to promote his "Middle Class Jobs and Opportunity Tour." Back in January 2010, Obama set a lofty goal of doubling U.S. exports in five years. With just 18 months to go to 2015, that target seems to be slipping beyond reach and has vanished from White House talking points. Blame tepid U.S. manufacturing growth, the lingering weak global economy, and a stronger U.S. dollar, which makes it harder to sell American goods and services overseas. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci, File)
