All I'm hearing on TV from the political pundits is that Mitt Romney must stop telling us how bad the economy is and start telling us what he's going to do about it:
Nevertheless, this obvious display of a lack of confidence in the ability of a major party’s nominee to persuade voters should trouble the Romney camp, especially given similar comments by conservative pundit Bill Kristol:That's going to be a big task for Mitt. Just look at that list up there...59 policy proposals and a 160 page document explaining them. Yikes, who's got time to read that? A little consolidation is in order. Most people don't have a very long attention span.
The economy is of course important. But voters want to hear what Romney is going to do about the economy. He can “speak about” how bad the economy is all he wants—though Americans are already well aware of the economy’s problems—but doesn’t the content of what Romney has to say matter? What is his economic growth agenda? His deficit reform agenda? His health care reform agenda? His tax reform agenda? His replacement for Dodd-Frank? No need for any of that, I suppose the Romney campaign believes. Just need to keep on “speaking about the economy.”
There is also criticism of his advisers, many who have been with Romney since his days in Massachusetts:
Prominent conservative Republicans excoriated Mitt Romney’s campaign Thursday, publicly ridiculing his longtime core team of advisers — “the Boston boys,” as the Wall Street Journal labeled them — and suggesting they are bungling the presidential race.It's not good to have the guys on your side bashing you every night on TV, on the internet and in the newspapers. I hope the Romney campaign is taking some of the criticism to heart.
Whatever the reason(s), Mitt Romney and the GOP better get their act together soon, or we will be spending the next four years under an Obama Regime that will finish it's task of fundamentally transforming the United States of America.
This still makes my blood run cold...
