Whether one reads The Wall Street Journal, Politico, The National Review, the local newspaper, or watches the MSM or cable news, “what Mitt Romney must do” Wednesday night has itself been debated ad nauseum. Enough already!
I’ve been on record that I don’t think Mitt Romney has run a barnstormer of a campaign, and emotion doesn’t appear to be his strong suit thus far, but unprepared, Mitt is not. Romney and Ryan both understand what’s at stake in this election, and the debates will give them a national forum to explain and clearly draw the contrast between their vision of America vs. another four years of an Obama administration.
Earlier today, Paul Ryan was interviewed on Fox News Sunday, and said:
“We owe the country a very clear choice of a different future. We can either have a dynamic growing economy that produces opportunity, or we can have a stagnant economy that fosters dependency. Stagnation vs. growth, dependency vs. opportunity and upward mobility.”
“Look at unemployment, look at our poverty rates, look at the 23 million people struggling for work … we think it’s critical that people understand, it doesn’t have to be this way. We can get our country back on track.” [emphasis mine.]
For all the hand-wringing going on right now over Romney’s upcoming debate performance, Gingrich had the best advice:
“When he walks in to debate Obama, he’s got to be as tough with Obama as he was with me in Florida.” Romney “is not in a competition to be likeable.”
Without getting too religious, because this site and forum are not for that purpose, I do believe that God has a plan for every person. And this country is also the result of His plan. For Romney, his time is now. When he walks out on that debate stage Wednesday night, he’ll know in his heart Who has his back, and it can’t get any better than that.
