Ezra Klein: "Romney’s speech: Where was the policy?" [View all]

Perhaps it was just me, but I had trouble following the basic thread of the speech. Structurally, it began with a riff on how our forefathers came to this country looking for freedom. Then there was a section on the economic pain and personal disappointment Americans are feeling. Then a quick attack on Obama. Then came a riff on Neil Armstrong. Then Romney’s biography. Then a longer attack on Obama’s record. Then a brief look at Romney’s policies. Then the ending exhortation. As the line goes, there was a beginning, a muddle, and an end.
