Obama agenda: Energy pitch

On Obama’s energy speech at the University of Miami today, the AP writes, “Obama is heading to Florida on Thursday to promote an energy strategy that the administration says will reduce dependence on foreign oil in the long term. But Obama's pitch will also have a subtext: that the federal government can do little to halt the current rise in gasoline prices.”

The New York Daily News: “President Obama on Wednesday proposed lowering the corporate tax rate and closing tax loopholes, moves he said would make the United States more competitive and fair. But Republicans said his plans aren't ambitious enough,”

The Republican National Committee’s having a little fun at Obama’s expense, welcoming Obama to Miami. “Fifteen seconds is all it takes for the RNC to sing a different tune than the President,” it said in an email with an online ad and video, called, “Obama’s Got America Singin’ the Blues.” “The online ad highlights how gas prices have increased from $1.85 to $3.59 in three years under Obama. The RNC's day-long YouTube ad buy on Thursday is targeted to viewers watching news and politics content on YouTube in the Miami area.”
