The economic argument
In recent weeks, Mitt Romney has tacitly abandoned his strategy of making this election a simple referendum on President Barack Obama’s handling of the economy.
The New York Times reports that “rather than focusing on President Obama, they plan to stress that voters need to make a choice between two men with different visions of the world.”
This means “Mr. Romney intends to hit the White House with a series of arguments — on energy, health care, taxes, spending and a more direct attack on President Obama’s foreign policy record, rather than focusing like a laser beam on jobs and the economy.”
