Koffler writes at TheWhitehousedossier.com and I usually agree with his take on things so this doesn’t fill me me great optimism. I hope he’s wrong, for once.
Where Mrs. Romney really came alive and sounded most natural was in her praise for her husband. And that’s because wife of Mitt and mother of his children is the main role she’s played in life.
Even there, for me, she pointed to the weakness of the candidate. Mitt, she said, will work hard. He’ll care. He’ll “move heaven and earth” to “fix problems.” Not once did she say he was a conservative or that he had any guiding philosophy.
And that’s exactly the problem with Mitt. He thinks he can assemble America’s Best and Brightest in a boardroom – in this case the Cabinet Room – and just figure things out.
