Mitt Romney spoke to several empty seats Friday in Detroit, in a speech that offered Democrats more fodder for their attacks and failed to deliver the major economic address his campaign promised.
Is there a skilled politician out there? Somewhere? I leaned toward Romney (asked by lib Dem close friend) some months back.
Now I aim to cast my Illinois vote on March 20 for the Santorum man, who by the way gets a strong thumbs-up by the extremely well-versed international politics expert Michael Ledeen in the WS Journal.
HOLD ON THERE: Larry Kudlow praises Romney’s Detroit speech, in which
. . . he touted his new across-the board 20 percent reduction in personal tax rates. The language is crucial: “By reducing the tax on the next dollar of income earned by all taxpayers, we will encourage hard work, risk-taking, and productivity by allowing Americans to keep more of what they earn.”
This is supply-side language. It is incentive language.
And what this voter wants to hear. What’s going on here? The Hill has been reliable, ditto Kudlow.
