ABC News' Sunlen Miller reports: After receiving his regular rounds of morning briefings, President Obama will travel to Cleveland, Ohio to deliver remarks on the economy at Cuyahoga Community College West Campus. Speaking in the city where Minority Leader Boehner recently detailed the Republican economic agenda, the president, "will lay out the choice between his ideas and the failed policies and failed philosophy that led us into this mess," the White House says.
While the president is expected to elaborate on the three economic proposals already outlined -infrastructure investments, expanding, simplifying and making permanent the R&D tax credit, and allowing companies to fully deduct qualified capital investments through the end of 2011 — the president will talk about the “values” that define each party economically speaking. “The president is not going to Cleveland to make news about these proposals, the proposals are already known,” an administration official said adding thought that he would discuss each proposal in the context of the economic recovery, “he’ll also be talking about where the economy has been, where we are now, and where we’re headed.” The focus will be on economic values – values being the new catchphrase when defining economic policy at the White House. The president will talk about the concepts that Boehner spoke of during his speech and highlight the “different values that animate our thinking about how you build a strong economy.” “The president will be talking about these values and the divergent paths that the two, the two parties are proposing this fall in the speech tomorrow, and that’s largely what the speech will be about," an administration official said Tuesday in advance of today's speech. In the afternoon, the President will return to the White House. -Sunlen Miller
