Mitt Romney is not really a politician. He’s a family man, a man of deep faith, a superb manager, and a deeply experienced businessman. But he’s not a typical politician. No false promises. If he promises something, he believes he can make it happen. And he means it. If the Republican Convention sent a message, it was not a belligerent Obama-attacking message — but a message of quiet competence.
America is in dire straits which are daily growing deeper. Nearly 88 million Americans are no longer in the labor force. 23 million Americans are unemployed. Fifty states have a cumulative debt of about $4.2 trillion. California alone has a debt of $6.7 billion and growing with every mile of high speed rail. It’s an awful mess, but Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan see a way out, though there isn’t much time, and they believe that they can do it because they have studied the problems and they’re good at math — very good. They know how to start the engine of free-market capitalism going again. Are you better off now than you were four years ago?
Quiet competence. We can do this.
