President Obama and the GOP hopefuls aiming to defeat him next year will take the race for the White House into high gear this month, as noted in a report in the Washington Post.

week, economy, speechesThe Post points out this will be a telling week with a Republican presidential debate on Wednesday and both the president and Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke speaking about the economy on Thursday.

On Monday, South Carolina Republican Senator Jim DeMint hosts a Labor Day candidate forum which will include all the major GOP presidential hopefuls. The next day, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney will lay out his plan for jobs creation in a speech in Nevada.

Wednesday's GOP presidential debate takes place at the Reagan Library in California. Only a day later, Bernanke will be in Minneapolis outlining what the Fed will do to try and stir the economy.

That speech will be followed at night by President Obama's addresss to a joint session of Congress. Obama had wanted to do the speech Wednesday but House Speaker John Boehner objected, with the debate already scheduled. Obama changed to Thursday but had to adjust the start time to 7 p.m. EST so the speech would not run into the 8:30 p.m. kickoff of the NFL regular season. The Republican Party will follow with an official reaction to that address.

The GOP follows with two additional presidential debates in September, both in Florida. Tampa hosts the first one on September 12th and Orlando the latter on the 22nd.
