The sighs you hear are Republicans sighing some relief. Finally, the Romney campaign has a spokesman who can do what Mitt Romney has never been capable of doing — defend success and articulate a message of why we must reform our nation’s budget and support free markets.
After all the Romney campaign missteps and flubs of the past few weeks, I am encouraged. But we should be clear here:it is not enough, but it is an excellent start to a reboot.
You’re publicly rebooting something that hasn’t even been released yet. You are renovating a house that is presently a pile of bricks and some blueprints sitting on a driveway. Romney won’t be the nominee until Tampa, not officially anyway, so if you’re already fixing him up that is a sign that something has gone badly haywire.
And nobody accused Ryan of killing old people, only of wanting them to die in poverty. I mean, it’s not like he walks around with an axe.
