Today's edition of USA Today
features a column
by Mitt Romney wherein he offers 10 pieces of advice for Barack Obama (advice he, no doubt, does not expect the President will actually heed) in dealing with our economic woes. They appear to me to be the beginnings of what could be an emerging backbone in the Republican party and, one also hopes, a sign of life therein. If I were a contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 and my name was not Mitt Romney, I should be very sorry that I had not come out with this article first. But I would also be working very diligently to adopt its central points as my own and to articulate them in such a way as to inspire enthusiasm for and understanding of them in the electorate. It is a good beginning . . . but only a beginning.
For those of you in the Southern California area, you may be interested in checking out this conference
scheduled for Saturday and featuring Mitt Romney as its keynote speaker. The social calendars of my children prevent me from attending and, while I don't resent it, I do regret it.
