Obama Agenda: Back to the Heartland

The AP previews Obama’s Midwest swing today: “In an election season when the economy is king, the central debate between President Barack Obama and GOP challenger Mitt Romney comes down to what is enough. Enough growth in the economy. Enough job creation.  Enough help for those still struggling to get back on their feet. Obama travels to two Midwest states at the epicenter of that debate, hard-hit Ohio and Michigan, on Wednesday to highlight his economic policies and place them in pointed contrast to the sharp budget-cutting proposals of House Republicans -- and by extension Romney.”

The Priorities ad against Romney is now up to $660,000 in four states – Ohio, Florida, Iowa, and Virginia.

“Star witnesses at John Edwards’ tawdry federal trial will include top staffers in President Obama’s administration and on his re-election team, court documents show,” the New York Post writes. “Political insiders say the White House is dreading the unwanted attention. … Included on Edwards’ (inset) witness list are White House deputy press secretary Jennifer Palmieri; Obama’s 2012 deputy campaign manager, Julianna Smoot; and Mark Kornblau, the spokesman for Susan Rice, US Ambassador to the United Nations.”
