As of Monday, the sales staff at Romney's, headed by the CEO, was intent on a new way of getting out the word by emphasizing what he'd do as president to dig us out of the hole we're in (where, incidentally, he helped conspicuously to put us).

Well, we'll see, as we wait with crossed fingers and bated breath. The thing's so plain, you'd think! Obama Inc., according to a stunning essay in the Wall Street Journal by five Stanford University experts, including ex-Treasury Secretary George P. Schultz, notes that the Obama budget "will raise the federal debt-to-GDP ratio to 80.4 percent in two years, about double its level at the end of 2008," with debt expanding from $18.8 trillion to $10.8 trillion in years and annual interest costs reaching $743 billion.

And that's just for starters. Can the CEO of Romney's take this ball, and numberless items like it, making them clear and visible and even a little frightening? This would be ample cause for customers to desert Obama Inc., in droves? Can he show how on his executive watch things in America would get done right for a change?

Seven weeks is what the CEO has left to deploy his fabled experience and close this sale. A little hope, a little change -- it might after all get done.
