After one blessed debate during the Republican primaries, a conservative pundit said, “Romney didn’t even mention the word ‘middle class’!” This was supposed to have been a terrible failure -- practically a crime against humanity. Romney was talking to Americans as Americans, not as classes. I praised him for it.
So, what did Romney offer the “middle class”? I’ll tell you what: He offered to avert financial collapse. To do something about the debt and the deficit. To reform entitlements. To reform the tax code. To foster the conditions in which economic growth occurs. To help put people back to work. To save the frickin’ country.
That’s not program enough for the “middle class”? Saving the country -- that should have been enough. And if it wasn’t good enough for the “middle class,” then the “middle class” is an ass.
