Chris Cillizza gave a heads up that Romney is back in town. In the beginning of the last campaign, I reported that Romney would be the GOP’s best shot, and he was. The trouble is that the winnable Mitt got corrupted by extreme conservatives and lost his opportunity. The winning Mitt had the entrepreneur and free enterprise ball, and he didn’t play it well.
Now, America needs to produce a sustainable economy that serves the Middle Class and that will come from an optimal mix of public and private enterprise. Brewing that mix is best accomplished by leaders who have experience in both types of enterprise management.
Frankly, until elected President, Obama had neither. He is an OJT kind of President and that is why it is unlikely that he will produce a lasting solution for sustainable economic performance unless he is extremely lucky.
Now is when Americans should be recruiting the next President, one who has both public and private enterprise CEO experience.
One the parties have their candidates, then they must compete for the middle of America, the 68% smack in the middle.
“We must compete for every single vote — the 47 percent and the 53 percent, and any other combination that adds up to 100 percent,” said Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R), in speech to the Republican National Committee on Thursday night.
Romney’s running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), made an implicit reference to the “47 percent” remark in a December speech. “Both parties tend to divide Americans into ‘our voters’ and ‘their voters.’ Let’s be really clear: Republicans must steer far clear of that trap. We must speak to the aspirations and anxieties of every American,” he said.”
