As Republican presidential candidates prepared to debate economic policy in New Hampshire tonight, advisers to President Barack Obama opened a new offensive on the same subject, charging that the Republicans who want Obama’s job don’t have a plan to boost employment.

White House senior adviser David Plouffe, speaking this morning on NBC’s “Today” program, accused the Republicans of wanting to “basically build a bridge back to the recession.” Their policies would “let Wall Street write their own rules, cut taxes for the wealthiest, let polluters have their way with our air and water.” he said. “That’s not going to grow jobs now or in the long term.”

In Hanover, New Hampshire, this evening, eight Republican candidates will discuss economic issues in a debate sponsored by Bloomberg LP and The Washington Post.

The appearances by Plouffe on “Today,” ABC’s “Good Morning America” and CBS’s “The Early Show” — along with a memo from campaign strategist David Axelrod released late last night and an interview this evening with Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner on Bloomberg Television before the debate begins — amounts to a coordinated effort by the president’s team to counter tonight’s Republican message on the economy.
