Uhh, someone is trying to sound more like Ronald Reagan and less like Mitt Romney.
And that would be Mitt Romney.
Speaking Friday in San Diego at a Republican National Committee gathering, Romney appeared to be trying to erase the problems that beset him during his 2012 campaign – that he was too elitist, didn’t offer a vision, and wasn’t a real conservative.
Whether he can change himself at the age of 67 is for you to decide. But he’s seems intent on trying.
A tieless, and apparently tireless, Romney said:
We can win in 2016 as a Party in the House, and the Senate, and in the White House, if we communicate a clear vision of this country and what we believe in . . .
Under President Obama, the rich have gotten richer, income inequality has gotten worse and there are more people in poverty than ever before. Under this president, his policies have not worked. Their liberal policies are good every four years for a campaign, but they don’t get the job done . . .
It’s a tragedy — a human tragedy – that the middle class in this country by and large doesn’t believe the future won’t be better than the past or their kids will have a brighter future of their own . . . people want to see rising wages and they deserve them.
Wait a second. Remove the reference to Obama, and it looks like this could have been a speech by . . . Obama. Where’s the conservative ideology? Oh well, maybe Romney 3.0 is the release everyone should skip.
