    I, too, would like Romney to be more aggressive, but we haven't even had the GOP Convention, yet. Let him start the real campaign after that. Besides, his election team helped him win the governorship of Massachusetts. They probably know what they are doing.

    Good comments and points by Fitness Freak, deep in thought, Kouger, and There You Go Again on his campaign.

    How is Romney the most secretive, when he's disclosed quite a substantial amount due to Newt's whining. Unless anyone can prove anything criminal that Romney does, then its a non-issue. Notice how no one accuses Romney of anything criminal, and only says things like "Secret Off shore accounts, that the public knows about"... instead of "He is breaking xyz law"...

    Mitt got specific and lost to Kennedy.

    Mitt got specific and lost to McCain.

    Mitt will not get specific again.

    Watch for the Romney campaign to kick in high gear starting in August with a "shock and awe" ad and message campaign. They have to spend all that money anyway. They say that they are biding time and I think that strategy just might work, with the help of more dismal job numbers like June's. If my instincts are correct, Romney will be in the White House - as the next POTUS - come January 2013.

    For all those who claim the DN is all pro-Romney all the time just take a look at this constant stream of leftist AP articles. Kasie Hunt and Steve Peoples put out a new anti-Romney article nearly every day. It was that way during the primaries and is still that way. There are plenty of pro-Romney and anti-Romney articles being pushed so please take note.

    On this particular article, Billy Kristol is a huge anti-gay anti-Mormon icon and I don't think something he says qualifies as an unbiased Republican voice out there.

    And Rupert Murdoch the owner of the WSJ (WSJ editorial critic) and then Rupert Murdoch again quoted as a separate critic is a creative way to make one person sound like a lot of people.

    Romney is wise to wait until at least after the National Republican convention to give very many details.

    The mainstream media is controlled by this administration. Releasing any DETAILS of his policy platform only gives them longer to harangue.

    The last 3-4 wks. before the election are when voters will finalize their decisions.

    You'll know his positions by then.

    The mainstream media doesn't want his policy positions so WE can see them. They want them so THEY can criticize them.

    Steve Peoples is obviously not a Romney supporter. Just read all of his articles as he is critical of Romney in every single one. Why does the DN continue to use his material...are you supposed to be a fair and balanced news source?

    I was wondering when Republicans would be annoyed with his Kerry-esque strategy of "well I'm not that other guy". He talks a big game but shows nothing to back it up, like his deficit reduction strategy that's short on details.
