Obama to lay out agenda for economic recovery
boston.com ^ | 7/21/13 | mike landler

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 nation’s economy, administration officials said Sunday.

Obama’s 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 president’s message, but said he would set his terms for what they expect will be another bruising battle with a Republican-controlled House over the nation’s fiscal policies.

White House officials liken Wednesday’s 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.

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.

I see he's choosing these small venues since he can no longer draw a crowd. The school only has about 1400 students. I'd be surprised if 10% showed up.

Interestingly, the school motto is Veritas. Won't be much of that in the speech.

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.

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.

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”.

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?

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’.

~~~Obama to lay out agenda for economic recovery~~~

And the lies just keep on coming. America didn’t learn by November, 2012.

They will. Like a runaway freight train coming down the tracks, this thing won’t be stopped.
