Washington Post puts "Romney as a Safe Choice"
In an article that came out today, Michael Gerson wrote that, Mitt Romney was a safe choice for risky times. In the article Gerson points out that Perry, "specific economic policies remain defiantly unspecific, but his rhetoric and intentions are ideologically ambitious." Perry has great intentions, but has no form of showing how these intentions will turn into plans of action. Romney on the other hand he states, "(Romney) refuses to hurl the accusation of “socialism.” Romney argues that an overbroad condemnation of Social Security would leave Republicans “obliterated as a party.” His own 59-point economic plan contains a “number of options”."
Gerson then ends the article with this ending statement, "None of these historical precedents make Romney a shoo-in. But they indicate his prospects are better than his current polling. Perry is a perfect candidate for a time of Tea Party anger — say, around 2010. But Romney has a better case in a time of economic fear — like the one we may be entering — when competence becomes a desperate political demand. In this case, Republicans may choose, once again, not the purist they love but the old hand they trust."
Lets all of us who support Mitt Romney, hope that in the end this statement makes true. Romney does have a plan of action, he does have the leadership skill that is needed to provide the end results we all hope to achieve. Mitt Romney, believes in America.
