From William Kristol. I agree completely. And furthermore, if Romney actually told us what he favors–in detail, not the overly massaged claptrap sound bites his campaign has allowed him–Obama might be forced to speak in some detail about the programs he favors, like the Affordable Care Act and Dodd-Frank (both desperately in need of improvement) and the precise combination of short-term stimulus and long-term entitlement reform necessary to unleash the economy. But that would involves risks by both campaigns. And we certainly can’t have a presidential campaign where the candidates actually provide useful hints about what they’d do in office, can we?
