Saying he'll do the opposite of Obama is an improvement for Romney, since usually he says he'll do the opposite of himself.

He'll Lose in Nov, the Opposite of Obama.

He is 100% correct.

Blasting Romney for campaign-trail speeches is silly, we all know he is just saying whatever he thinks will get him nominated. Once he's nominated he'll switch to saying what he hopes will get him elected. (Just like Obama is going to do.)

And if he was elected, just like Obama he'd find that half his campaign promises can't or shouldn't be delivered even if he really wanted to.

Both are politicians first, party members second, and "servants of the people" last.
The thing is he is essentially nominated at this point.
His only remaining competition is a guy who was mathematically eliminated from winning more than a month ago.
Why bother with the extreme right wing rhetoric when it isn't needed?
To me it shows, even more, that he is a political Gumby. Willing and able to shape himself into whatever he needs to to win.

The most amazing part of all this is that Repubs are projecting the situation of middle class & working class people onto business, claiming that Obama's policies "hurt" business, when business in general is doing extremely well. There's just no trickledown in trickledown economics, never was, never will be.

Browse the info here to get a sense of what's really happening wrt business-

So, uhh, if Romney intends to do the opposite of Obama, he'd probably figure out more ways for more americans to make more money, rather than just for those at the top to make more money...

Somehow, I doubt that the Ryan tax & spending plan will accomplish that. Hell, it'll just reinforce what's already happening, the austerity in govt spending that already exists-

Austerity? We already have it, which is why the economy still sucks.
