Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will leave on Wednesday for a week-long trip to the Olympics in London, Poland, and Israel.
The period of the Obama tenure, and now the 2012 election, are forcing Americans to reconsider, in a way I’m not sure we have for a good 200 years, what the vote means, and what politics means to our lives. Since 1792, the sense has gradually crept upon us that when we elect a president, we are electing our collective future. That sense took a giant leap forward with the FDR presidency, and frankly, it took another one when Reagan entered office.
A week of setbacks for President Obama has the GOP excited about Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney's chances to emerge victorious in November. Rasmussen's most recent poll has Romney leading Obama by one percentage point, which represents a five point swing from May 20, when Obama led Romney, 47%-43%.
When Romney speaks of the US auto industry recovering, he is speaking in the language of big, dirigiste government, accepting at face value the short-term effect of a bailout process that has served mainly to perpetuate unprofitable but politically entrenched conditions. It guarantees that more subsidies will be needed down the road.
The internet is seeking out the text of President Obama's condolences to Prime Minister Netanyahu, but they can't find it.
Romney must respond to attacks like Gingrich or New Jersey governor Chris Christie would. A gentlemanly, gloves-on strategy will not win this election. This does not mean Romney should call Obama a socialist or Marxist. Instead, he should show that he’s the mainstream candidate while the Obama administration is out of step with historic, successful American practice.
US Republican Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney says Palestinians "want to eliminate the state of Israel."
