    Very encouraging speech from Romney reported today. Accuses Obama of being inept and pushing policies that were ill thought out, ineffective, and waffling. Says they represent a moral failure because of the pain and suffering they caused. He is right, 100% right.
    Nice to see him hitting the right buttons. This is exactly the tack he needs to take in getting to the White House.
    I have come around to liking Romney more and more. I respect the job he's done getting through the primaries,building a formidable organization in the process. He clearly knows how to run something.
    Romney calls Obama

    You're liking him more and more just because of what he says? Congratulations, you're as much of an idiot for Romney as liberals were for Obama in 2008. All we need now is for Romney to say "Hope and change".

    Yeah surprisingly what someone says does actually affect what I think of them. I think you're an idiot based on your post, for example.

    Romney could easily have gotten distracted in the message. He could have criticized Obaam on a bunch of other issues, liek Afghanistan. But he isn't. He knows what the Democrats' weakness is: 4 years of the worst recovery on record. Calling it a moral issue because of the suffering involved is very clever, rather than citing dry facts. It puts a human face on it, and takes away the Dems' conceit that they "care" about people.

    And on the economy, Obama apparently has two narratives:

    1. I inherited this mess,
    2. It would have been so much worse if not for me.

    That's why he's talking about contraceptives and Bain Capital. He's got not one accomplishment he can run on.

    We need to re-elect Obama so he can finish the job.


    Heaven help us if he does.

    Yes, Obama will not sacrifice US lives and run as a "war president", so the economy IS the primary issue.

    You think he isn't sacrificing lives in a failed and futile strategy in Afghanistan? You think he isn't beating the death of bin Laden like a red headed step child? You think he isn't changing the subject from the economy to ANYTHING else?
    Do you think?

    really...? ...then what was his Afghan surge in 2009 all about.....?

    (CNSNews.com) - Although President Obama has only served 39 months in office, 69 percent of the U.S. military fatalities in the more than 10-year-old war in Afghanistan have occurred on his watch.

    I heard the speech. That line drew applause. As did every line that noted negatives about the economy and Obama.

    That line is it. He's going to do everything in his power! Fantastic! Such detail.
