Romney also should end his talk of the middle class needing the most help with respect to tax cuts. That refrain sounds just like Obama and his class warfare assault on so called rich, higher earners. Romney would be wise to borrow a play book from Ronald Reagan and advocate for tax cuts across the board. Tax cuts will help create jobs and buoy the economy.
In a match up against Obama, particularly in debates, Romney must respond to questions on his positions with more conviction and passion than what we’ve seen to date. To woo independents, disillusioned Democrats and some doubtful conservatives, and beat Obama, Romney needs to channel the real Romney not the plastic Romney, whose traveled this road before and lost in 2008. Over the years, Romney's positions on abortion, guns, taxes, Romneycare, among others have shifted, so he needs to convey more convincingly where he stands on the issues today, not yesterday but today. But after it’s all said and done the burning question remains can Romney be the GOP’s superhero in 2012 or just its presidential nominee? Inquiring minds want to know.
