Skip to comments.Obama to lay out agenda for economic recovery
Posted on 07/21/2013 9:35:49 PM PDT by knak
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?
He is also supposed to be at Central Missouri University here in Warrensburg on Wednesday too. It has people around here scratching their heads as to why he will disturb the peace of our very Republican area to speak at a school where most of the kids are off on summer break. I expect they will be bussing in in a crowd from Kansas City since not many locals will pass the Obama cheerleader screening.
I’ve still yet to hear what the schedule is know whether I need to ask off work to protest though are Rat gov Nixon will be there too.
The foreign major a-hole can go bleep himself. Resign, you fraud.
Step One for economic recovery: resign, and take all your socialist cronies with you.
No doubt he’ll just rehash the same old plan with a different label. He’ll spend a trillion dollars on left-wing private interest groups that have nothing to do with the economy and call it “stimulus II”.
WOW.In year six we gonna’ commence to talk about a recovery that the one doin’ the talking, has torpedoed in ways we didn’t even know existed. He creates more problems than the next for administrations will be able to fix.
But... but... but I thought that the Obama regime told us all that 2010 was the ‘recovery summer’.
Obama wouldn’t lie to us, would he?
So he is announcing his resignation and the upcoming special election to replace him? Surest way to spur a recovery!
You misspelled it. As it is Obambi’s plan, you must correct the spelling of ‘shoots’. Please delete the two ‘O’s and replace with an ‘I’.
... and Bush stole the shovels or what?
I think he just likes to ride around in Air Force One with Reggie Love with the cabin door locked.
Who would’ve known they were all gay (exposing their a$$e$ like that)?
“We’ll do what we do at home in Indonesia or Kenya.if its good enough for them its good enough for us”...
How many times does this make?
0bama ‘economic recovery’ plan = More redistribution of wealth
More communism prattle (yawn).
Same old Democrat vote-buying scheme.
Reverse Midas touch.
Laser focus back?
Well, by definition, it does not -- it's perpetual. ;-)
"Like a laser..."
He’s had the same plan for decades - “End capitalism; raise taxes”.
I guess the existing agenda isn’t working anymore.
Just preparing themselves for prison life.
Great, another big batch of drivel and bullsh-- heading down the pike again.
He’s going to propose that all women between the ages of 10 and 30 prostitute themselves and give the Feds a cut of the take.
