I guess Mitt thinks that things are just about wrapped up and that there's therefore no point in talking about anything very specific. He's playing, as they say "not to lose". I don't think it does much to get independents and moderates (if there are any left) on your side, either.


@Mark B - perhaps Romney has a very specific strategy for playing not to lose at this point. All Primary candidates move in the direction of their base, and toward the center for the general election. I think any candidate would be envious of someone who can win the nomination without getting very specific. It certainly would help to mitigate the inevitable charge of hypocrisy when he's moving toward the center - and getting more specific. The real fight for independents and moderates will occur in September and October.

Glad to see that Mitt Romney and President Obama are equally patriotic.

Mitt is no singer, but it'll be great having a patriot over one apologizing and bowing to foreign leaders.

Mitt Romney would be so much better for the country...

than the President who ended the war in Iraq and gave the order to defeat Osama Bin Laden.

If Barack Obama single handidly cured cancer, you would condemn him for hurting the business interests of morticians and headstone carvers.
