Washington Post Editorial Describes Romney As An Empty Suit
This editorial lists Romney's positions on numerous issues and shows how he has shifted back and forth on each. It describes Romney's tax plan and agrees with critics who claim that it does not add up, and that critical details are not provided. Romney is the invisible man is who trying to become president by withholding critical information about his plans. His campaign is actually based upon an attack on Obama for not quickly producing a recovery from our worst recession in 80 years. If anything, his plan is a repeat of the Bush plan of cutting taxes and deregulating the economy. He is betting that the public has a short memory for what led to the recession. He will get most of the votes from those who backed Bush. The question is whether he can convert voters who voted for Obama to vote for the invisible man.
