Pat gets it right, Romney is turning the corner in becoming more forthright, direct, and aggressive. This is a test of the American electorate as to what direction the country will choose. But, Romney and Ryan must be very careful to frame the issues...and proposed solutions-- properly, clearly, consistently and confidently so as to engender trust in their leadership....and, further, not to scare the electorate, i.e., fall into the Obama campaign "fear trap". Moving too fast with private sector solutions to Medicare and SS, in whatever form, will derail them, given the sad track record of "Wall Street" in bringing about so many of our economic problems. The electorate remains dubious!
