Open thread: Obama’s Chip Diller speech in Ohio

posted at 12:41 pm on June 14, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

As Barack Obama prepares for his “reframing” speech in Ohio at 1:45 ET today, Republicans on Capitol Hill have already produced a response to his likely strategy of whining about dealing with a do-nothing Congress.  John Boehner has a simple visual retort — standing next to a large table completely covered in jobs bills passed by the GOP-controlled House that the Democratic-controlled Senate has refused to consider. Of course, as Boehner reminds us, Senate Democrats haven’t even passed a budget in more than three years:

With President Barack Obama set to take his message on the economy to John Boehner’s backyard, the Republican House Speaker landed a preemptive blow Thursday with a video blaming Senate Democrats for a congressional logjam that has stalled bills meant to create jobs.

In the video, the Ohio lawmaker points to documents covering his desk, identifying them as House-passed legislation now blocked by the Democratic-held Senate.

“This isn’t just our work — it’s your work in progress,” Boehner says.

“You see, we’re going to keep adding to this pile, and we’re going to keep calling on President Obama and Democrats in the Senate to give these jobs bills a vote,” he says.

Meanwhile, Mitt Romney isn’t letting the opportunity to pass, either.  He will deliver his own speech on the economy in Ohio, which is scheduled to start five minutes after Obama starts speaking, at 1:50.  That assumes, of course, that Obama will actually begin his speech on time, as Gabriel Malor pointed out on Twitter:

The Associated Press reports on the battle of Ohio shaping up today,and the delicious karma:

Sharpening the choice for the nation, President Barack Obama and Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney are offering dueling visions of how to fix the economy, framing in their most direct terms the fierce debate that will decide the November election. In a flash of campaign drama, the two are giving major speeches at nearly the same time Thursday from the same state, battleground Ohio. …

Romney will talk about cutting regulation and spending, overhauling the tax system, doing away with Obama’s health care overhaul and supporting a major oil pipeline known as Keystone XL. Setting his own expectations for Obama, Romney told donors in Cincinnati: “He’ll speak with great rhetoric and eloquence. But actions and records speak a heck of a lot louder than words.”

Without doubt, Romney and Obama have starkly different visions of economic rebirth, the issue of top concern for voters. To hear them tell it, Obama thinks Romney’s jobs philosophy is a failed notion of just cutting taxes and gutting regulation, while Romney says the president is a big-government defender who is stifling the free market at the cost of economic acceleration.

Of the two, Obama is carrying more of a political burden because, as the guy in charge, he is saddled with a lumbering economic recovery. Romney can largely blame the incumbent – just as Obama, as a candidate, benefited from blaming President George W. Bush.

One interesting factoid: the White House doesn’t have this speech on the President’s official schedule.  In fact, they don’t have anything on the schedule for Obama today, including an official event at the World Trade Center site to get briefed on progress.  Talk about lowering expectations

Let’s keep this as an open thread.  For fun, I’ll give you this preview of President Obama’s speech:

Maybe that’s a little too negative.  It’s probably more like this:

This lyric might actually appear in the speech: “I hope you learn it note for note, like good little children.”

Update: From the comments, we might expect a little lot of this, too:

This is exactly what he did before ObamaCare passed. He’d have pointless press conferences. When even the press complained how pointless they were, he’d follow it up with even more pointless press conferences.

Open thread?

Any Michiganians, Tea Party or Conservatives around? You might want to give a look at Kerry Bentivolio, the only Republican on the ballot on the new MI-11 – Rep. Thad McCotter’s district. He’ll be facing a write-in effort from a former state senator that was picked by 10 establishment types in a smoke-filled room. She’s a moderate but very well financed. This district was made more Republican and Mr. Bentivolio shouldn’t have trouble winning in November (the Dem candidates are a LaRouchie and a Muslim with a very heavy South Asian accent).

There’s a money bomb going on today, please consider chipping in. The campaign is also looking for voluntaries. If you’re an amateur political operative in MI, this is a great opportunity to play a major role in a congressional campaign and maybe in a future congressional staff.

Bentivolio is a Tea Partier who never held elected office and a Constitutional Conservative (in the mold of Justin Amash but not quite).

lea on June 14, 2012 at 1:18 PM

I haven’t listened to a word President “The Buck Does Not Stop Here” has said since sometime in 2009.

From what I have read it has all been variations on the same old predictable themes — self congratulations for anything good that has happened and blaming others for everything else, including Bush, capitalism, corporations, the “rich”, and Republicans. He has had no serious realistic plan to address our the deficit, the debt, unemployment, declining real estate values, and high gas prices other than to make the US a more socialist country with the government spending more and more, redistributing more and more, taxing more and more, regulating more and more, and hiring more and more government employees.

I’ll check here to see if he says anything different. I expect variations on the same old same old.

Meat Fighter on June 14, 2012 at 12:47 PM

Every time Jackass-in-Chief tries to explain economics to those he believes to be ignorant and uninformed, I’m reminded of an old Beetle Bailey comic:

Beetle and Zero are in a log cabin. Beetle huddles in front of the fire while Zero brings logs to burn. In spite of how large the fire is, Beetle keeps getting colder. Beetle finally turns around to see that Zero has been getting firewood by removing the logs from the walls of the cabin.

That image has stuck with me over 40 years.

At the risk of explaining a cartoon that needs no explanation, it takes someone either extremely mentally deficient or criminally lazy to burn the house in order to stay warm (as some homeless people do). But you can double the mental deficiency or criminality of a Chief Executive sitting in front of the fire instructing the worker to destroy the structure in order to gain short-term benefit from the heat generated.

But Obama doesn’t even realize he’s burning the walls.

This Jackass must go.
