President Barack Obama on Wednesday hailed the resurgence of the auto industry and Detroit’s comeback from bankruptcy in a speech that paid tribute to the Motor City and offered a preview to his upcoming State of the Union address.

“Because of you, manufacturing has a future in this country,” Obama told a crowd of auto industry workers at a Ford Plant in Wayne. “The middle class has a future in this country. The auto industry has proved that any comeback is possible, and by the way, so has the Motor City.”
