WASHINGTON With major battles looming in the fall over the federal budget and the debt ceiling, President Barack Obama is trying to regain the initiative, embarking on a campaign-style tour of the Midwest this week to lay out his agenda for reinvigorating the nations economy, administration officials said Sunday.
Obamas offensive will begin Wednesday in Galesburg, Ill., with what his aides are saying will be a major address on economic policy at Knox College. Officials declined to provide details of the presidents message, but said he would set his terms for what they expect will be another bruising battle with a Republican-controlled House over the nations fiscal policies.
White House officials liken Wednesdays speech to one he gave in 2011 in Osawatomie, Kan., where he articulated the theme of economic inequality in American society that became a leitmotif of his re-election campaign; and one at Georgetown University soon after taking office in 2009, when he talked about how the American economy would recover from the Great Recession.

He has had years to lay out his plan, what could possibly be new.
He’s been laying out the agenda for 5 years now. What’s new this time?
He was focused on the economy and jobs from day 1.
More campaigning and more look at ME!
Hey - what happened to those “green shoots”?
yeah I thought he campaigned on that.
No need to read the agenda. I’m sure it includes increase taxes, and a bunch of green energy supposed jobs, more IRS audits, fees on conceal carry permits.
Relax, he can work on the economy during his third or fourth term - after he visits all 57 states.
what was that? Like a Laser?
Does the perpetual campaign never stop?
solar blah, blah, blah infrastructure blah, blah, blah construction blah, blah, blah shovel ready blah, blah, blah create or save blah, blah, blah
The new plan is to take the attention off the IRS corruption, the NSA scandal, Benghazi, etc.
Interestingly, the school motto is Veritas. Won't be much of that in the speech.
Shovel ready bulls*t
Think Teresa Guariladucci ( spelled correct ) and her Super IRA run by the Guberment after it has come to light the Detroit City Pensioner's will get a nasty hair cut. Just Like GM kept their Pension. This is something he can roll out to all the failed Democrap run cities like Chicago who just got their Muni Bond Rating wacked...
Yes more wealth redistribution, they will come for your 401k, IRA's etc next.
No doubt Mike Landler is a True Believer. I wonder if he got a reacharound?
