Politico reports in a popularly demanded sequel to yesterday's Titanic coverage that Mitt Romney "is rolling out a new and broader strategy to make the election a referendum on 'status quo versus change.' "
No explicit word yet on which Romney supports. Half his discombobulated staff likes the status quo, half prefers change, and the other half hasn't yet realized that they're running a nationally covered presidential campaign. Meanwhile, Romney advocates both.
[T]he economy is likely to remain "the dominant focus" of the campaign. But ads and speeches will focus on a wider array of issues, including foreign policy, the threat from China, debt and the tone in Washington.
This means that if you're dissatisfied with the recovering economy, a universally praised foreign policy, current pushbacks against China, a rational debt-reduction proposal and President Obama's congenitally moderate "tone," then Mitt Romney--and God of course--has a plan for you.
However we can't yet call Romney's "new" one an actual "change" from whatever the hell it is that Romney's been hustling. We suspect his message will remain as chaotic as ever; and in that case, nothing new.
