Here's one job-creating strategy President Barack Obama isn't considering.
Obama just said no to a suggestion from a Pennsylvania college student that he consider legalizing nonviolent crimes, including gambling and drugs, to stimulate the economy and create jobs.
Obama told the student at a forum in Allentown, Pa., on Friday that he appreciated the "boldness" of the idea. And he said the young man was doing just what college students are supposed to do _ questioning conventional wisdom.
But he says the student's suggestion is not one he's going to follow.
