Bad News: Obama's Big "Reframing" Speech A Re-run of Every Other Obama Speech

How about extending Update II to have a visible "Debt Clock" running during Romney's speeches ? He could include some references to how many houses, cars, weeks groceries for a family, health insurance policies, etc. are lost during the time of the speech to pay for the booze on Nancy's plane and all the other wasted government expenditures. I remember how effective the brutal pounding of " Day ___ " was during the Carter hostage fiasco. Also how about a " Daisy " award for the most heinous Obama advertisement of the week ? GBUSA

I'd like to see a couple new timepieces in addition to the Doomsday Debt Clock.

1. Foreclosure clock
2. Unemployment clock - maybe a stock market-esque ticker instead (using REAL data, not the made up, cover your butt stats).
3. Decline in standard of living clock.
4. Time until Social Security "expires".
5. Number of pages of "Orwellian Big Brother State Regulations" passed. (The usual mix of nanny state and police state items).

Remember how the president's "major address" this afternoon was supposed to contain a significant "reframing" of his economic message heading into November?  White House officials hyped this speech as a meaningful  shift in rhetoric and approach, even as they conceded the president's comments would contain no new ideas.  They were correct on the latter point, but astonishingly, the president didn't even follow through on the former pledge -- which was ostensibly the entire purpose of the speech.  Obama essentially repackaged the exact same speech he delivered in April, but inserted the names "Romney" and "Bush" a few more times. ...
