I don’t like it. It is conceding Obama’s assertion that we are in a state of class warfare.

WE ARE in a state of class warfare, have been for a VERY long time, and will remain in one for so long as we continue to abide the income tax and the IRS!

The American people need an education on economics. Glad to see Romney is willing to try to provide it.

Not sure if there is enough time for it to truly be effective between now and November, but it desperately needs to be done.

Oh, please! What next... a thousand points of light? This is nothing but a gimmick.

I can tell ol’ Oven Mitt exactly what government needs to do - get the heck out of the way. Cut government to the bone, lower taxes, and stop the EPA. The only way government can help the economy is to restrict itself to its core function of law enforcement and defense. Too many people feeding at the trough for that to happen, but I can dream.

The best thing he can do for the middle class is the first thing he can do for the middle class - defeat Obama.

Of course it's a gimmick. All election politicking is theatre.

That doesn't mean it isn't worth doing. He's (a) spending time in swing states, (b) talking about how he will improve the economy and (c) giving swing state voters a contrast to Obama's shrill failed ideas.

What's not to like?

No argument here, but that is gonna take years. Have to overcome a public school curriculum that is like twelve years of compiled Michael Moore movies and Richard Trumka speeches.

This is what I’m talking about. Romney should be at 8 of those over the 2 day period.

He should borrow Santorum’s pickup truck.

Because he can’t do what he promises. He doesn’t have the intestinal fortitude. Like all other pols, he will promise the moon and some will believe it. Then when things don’t work out the way these gullible people thought, they will elect the next charlatan who promises what he can’t deliver.

It’s been a long time since any pol told the truth and stuck to it. Perhaps Americans really can’t handle the truth.

We have to stop conceding the language and concepts they put forth. One of the great things about this country is that we do not have a “class” system. We have people who are poor who may or may not become rich, we have people who are rich who may blow it all and become poor, we have people in between. We don’t have “classes” of people.It is this thinking that you are “IN” a particular “CLASS” that takes away your power, takes away the idea that you have it in your hands to be wherever you want to be, that you are the master of your own fate, not stuck inside some class system. “Class” is a word that puts a black box around your mind and your potential.

Obama is swinging with class warfare. You have to parry that move. Obama’s played all the ammunition he seems to have and is desperate. Romney cannot let up.

I’m not crazy about him, but he’s running a very aggressive and solid campaign. The MSM and Obama Regime are in a tizzy about it. He just keeps winning.

Romney’s inside Obama’s OODA loop.

I agree 100 percent! I’d feel a lot better about “strengthening America” vice just one sector of America. It gives creedence to the whole class warfare narrative.

This is good...and I think it better to stretch it out over a longer period of time rather than a shorter time frame where it’d be out of the public eye more quickly...and more quickly forgotten.

I can’t tell from the article whether Romney is going to attend any of the events himself. Do you have any information on that?

1) Somebody has to be president. I truly hope it won’t be Obama again.

2) As I alluded in my initial response, the best thing Romney can do is stop Obama. I believe the spigot of investment will open again once Obama is dethroned and the economy will recover on its own without a lot of help from Romney as long as there is a Republican congress.

3) Romney may not do what he promises but as long as he isn’t gumming up the works or continuing Obama’s policies, American business will heal itself and anything a Republican congress does to help is just gravy.

Hate Romney all you want. Be suspicious of him and, yes, hold his feet to the fire but Business will respond to him and that alone is worth voting him in. America needs to get back to work. Ending the Obama nightmare will be a big part.

Exactly. All Romney ever promises is that 'he won't do what Obama did' because he doesn't have any plans to restore full employment. He is not running on creating jobs for he knows that will require insourcing.

Romney just wants to create the illusion that change will make a difference and we have seen how that works.

“The American people need an education on economics.”

They’ve been getting an up-close schooling in economics for years now, and it has them terrified. One thing that hurts Obama badly is that the impact of his socialist spending spree VERY quickly dropped the value of the US dollar; people didn’t have to wait very long to watch their dollars buy less at the supermarkets, gas stations, etc.

What Europe learned about socialism over several decades we learned in less than three years; while people complain about mortgaging their “grandchildren’s futures”, the fact is that many Americans can’t afford children (never mind grandchildren). Some people complaining about the long-term impact of this spending are actually complaining about the present impact - now - on them.

1. Review and repeal every damn law and administrative action passed since this administration took office. Then a total purge of unconstitutional federal laws and regulations.
2. Lower income tax rates.
3. Appoint conservatives to the courts.

That's all you need to do Mitt.

(What a dreamer, eh?)

The Kenyan must go.
