The always excellent Jay Nordlinger had a piece in National Review Online about Mitt Romney, and how he was a much better candidaqte than many gave him credit for.
“So, what did Romney offer the “middle class”? I’ll tell you what: He offered to avert financial collapse. To do something about the debt and the deficit. To reform entitlements. To reform the tax code. To foster the conditions in which economic growth occurs. To help put people back to work. To save the frickin’ country.”
