Obama Isn't Working, and He's Only Halfway There

Here's an interesting news mashup. Turns out President Obama spoke to supporters in Chicago on Wednesday night, a DNC fundraiser and 50th birthday celebration. See RCP, "Obama: "We're Not Even Halfway There Yet" (via Legal Insurrection). Added: A Memeorandum thread now.

Meanwhile, Mitt Romney was ready for it, and released this ad ahead of Obama's trip, according to Lynn Sweet, "Mitt Romney taunts Obama over Chicago’s woes ahead of visit":

If Obama's only halfway there, then no one will have a job when he's done.
