John Podhoretz highlights Mitt Romney's closing argument on the economy.
Achieving change, he said, “requires that we put aside the small and the petty, and demand the scale of change we deserve: We need real change, big change. Our campaign is about that kind of change — confronting the problems that politicians have avoided for over a decade, revitalizing our competitive economy, modernizing our education, restoring our founding principles.”
The speech presented its listeners with a binary choice: Obama as the candidate of the status quo, Romney as the candidate of the future. If Romney can hammer this home until Nov. 6 as effectively as he did in Iowa yesterday, he’ll be our next president.
