Mitt's grand plan

Just before the Republican National Convention, Mitt Romney (finally) unveiled his economic plan, but it failed to impress even the Republican Party's cheerleader-in-chief, Karl Rove, who wrote in the Wall Street Journal, "Mr. Romney must define more clearly what he would do as president. In spelling out his five-point plan for the middle class, he'll have to deepen awareness of how each element would help families in concrete, practical ways, and offer optimism for renewed prosperity."

It doesn't seem that not "actually doing anything" is the best recipe for winning a Nobel Prize in Economics.

Roberto De Vido is a communications consultant, writer, cartoonist and jack of many trades. The former chief of Tucson Sentinel’s East Asia Bureau, he now lives in California (make of that what you will).

My job is not to worry about [the 47 percent]. I’ll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.
