The GOP has nothing to offer even in rebuttal.

Obama channeling Teddy Roosevelt:

UPDATE 3-Obama hits Republicans, Wall St in populist speech | Reuters: “Their philosophy is simple: we are better off when everyone is left to fend for themselves and play by their own rules. Well, I’m here to say they are wrong,” he said.

But Republicans said it was another attempt to distract from what they see as Obama’s failed economic record. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell accused the president and his fellow Democrats of resorting to “cheap political theater.”

Of course being the Party of No, well, that’s expensive political theater.  If he resonates with the Occupy movement, the GOP goose is cooked.  You heard it here first.  Break a leg, Mr. President!
