I will give credit where credit is due. I've knocked Kudlow enough times but I tip my hat off to him tonight. He didn't shill it. He called it as even I was seeing it, Romney didn't give any "meat" to his plans. Just saying "I will create 12 million jobs" without telling us HOW is meaningless. We are to say " Oh OK you said so so it will be true."
At the outset Romney needs to stop making that "titz" sound when he talks. It really was annoying as hell. With that aside he just didn't sell me. He wasn't telling me what he WILL do. Creating 12 million jobs is no small feat. Personally I think he needs to sell it through his energy policy since there you can create millions of jobs.
I recognize the reality that post collapse, any recovery would be slow. I said it back in 2008 and I say it today. An industry was basically annhilated (housing). You don't get a V shaped recovery off that. You need a catalyst to replace all those unsupportable jobs. The only catalyst I saw and see is via energy. Obama may be right eventually in that alternative programs are necessary, however ignoring the bridge to that end was a mistake. Romney needs to push that.
Personally I think both Republicans and Democrats want to shout "USA USA." Neither gets exclusivity there. But until I hear real specifics instead of rhetoric, I am voting for whoever is the third candidate on the ballot.
