Mitt Romney: The Man With the Plan

Why is it whever the Boston Globe tries to do a hit piece on Mitt Romney I get this warm fuzzy feeling all over. Perhaps it's just another confimation that the next Ronald Reagan is only a year away from winning the 2008 election. Or perhahps, it's just the knowledge of the superiority of free market solutions to our nations woes.

After JC Watts last column (which I posted) in which he asks where is the leadership? and where is next contract with America? I felt compelled to outline some of Mitt Romney's ideas for the country in a ten part blog post series. That will no longer be necessary. Mitt Romney has beaten me to the punch. He's gone far beyond the contract with America and has instead produced a 67 page booklet outlining his ideas for change and innovation. It's called a Strategy for a Stronger America.
This from the Boston Globe:

In the introduction, he says that America's future "depends on our willingness to hold to the principles that have guided and built our nation." He wants to beef up the military, get tougher on dictators and radical Islamic jihadists, cut taxes, end illegal immigration, and "promote a culture of life."

"I think the picture is, 'I'm a fairly orthodox conservative,' " said Charlie Arlinghaus, president of the Josiah Bartlett Center for Public Policy, a think tank in Concord, N.H. "There's precious little there you wouldn't see in the Heritage Foundation talking points."

"One of Romney's claims to fame is that he is that guy who can write a good business plan, [and] put all the moving parts together," Arlinghaus said. "This is the thing you can wave around, saying, 'I've put out an agenda where I tell you exactly where we need to go, because we need a plan, and I'm the man with the plan.'
