Romney and the lost faithless

O.K., our own thoughtful Joe Knippenberg suggests how Romney would (or should) respond to those critics (Brooks, Noonan, et al) who chastize him for not leaving room for faithlessness in America in his Big Speech. Joe is thoughtful, and might be more persuasive than Romney, and that is not to Romney’s advantage.

Did you notice that Brooks also, and incoherently, criticized Mitt for not being theological enough and being content with a mere soup of the faithful. So, include the faithless and divide the faithful. David wants an end to the culture war on these terms I guess. Dr. Pat is right on below. Mitt should have left Islam out along with the nihilistic faithless, leaving Joe's philosophic believers in the big tent. Where does that put Tom Pangle?

The world's gone mad.

I've many a problem with the speech, but that Romney didn't answer every criticism and speak to every group, isn't one of them.

The group that put this speech together for him, and intensely polled and focus grouped it, can't be critiqued for giving Romney something that wasn't completely comprehensive.

That's asking a bit much.
