about time.....even if it's a glossy booklet...
After being hit for weeks by Mitt Romney for lacking specificity on what his second term would look like, President Obama is touting his plans with a new glossy booklet titled "The New Economic Patriotism: A Plan for Jobs & Middle Class Security."
Copies of the booklet were distributed to reporters before Obama's post-debate rally here. The booklet distills his plans to bolster the manufacturing sector, hire 100,000 math and science teachers and cut the deficit by $4 trillion.
The campaign plans to distribute the booklet widely in the final days of the campaign.
Republicans said the plan amounts to little more than rehash of old plans. A Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll published this week showed that 62% of voters want major changes, while 4% want status quo.
The Obama campaign is "admitting they haven't been focused on it until 15 days to Election Day," Republican National Committee spokeswoman Kirsten Kukowski said. "But to those 62% of voters who want the president to make major changes in a second term don't get your hopes up.
Obama advisers told The Wall Street Journal the plan won't involve new policies.
