Obama’s Talking Tour Proves Obamanomics is in Full Retreat

July 24, 2013 J,

President Barack Obama recently launched a campaign-style speech tour to publicize “bold” ideas to help the middle class and renew his executive focus on the economy. Of course, the president has political reasons to divert the public’s attention away from touchy security issues. A slew of scandals — Benghazi, IRS conservative targeting, and NSA data collection — have harmed the administration’s reputation and dominated media coverage for much of 2013. This new speech tour, however, isn’t President Obama’s first attempt to forcibly change the national conversation. In fact, the president has already unintentionally made economics the center of the dialogue for the past month. Obama’s problem is that the conversation has focused on the unintended costs and consequences of his policies, not his naïve, unattainable aspirations.
