It seems Mitt Romney's new, "specific" line of attack is a platitudinous barrage that'll have us begging for mercy before the week's out:
"Mitt Romney’s vision for America is an opportunity society, where free people and free enterprise thrive and success is admired and emulated, not attacked," [writes campaign manager Matt Rhoades in a "tactical shift"-explaining memo to reporters]. "President Obama’s vision for America is a government-centered society, where government grows bigger and more active, occupying more of our everyday lives."
But you know, this is our fault. If we hadn't ridiculed the poor hapless schmuck so much, he and his staff wouldn't now be shifting rhetorical tactics every six hours and subjecting us to this increasingly offensive drivel. But no, we couldn't leave things alone. We could have had another seven weeks of Obama-as-foreigner and Obama-as-socialist and Obama-as-Other--you know, the classics--but now we're stuck with the "new" Herbert Hoover-Romney and only heaven knows what after this.
