When a reporter asks questions like this, Romney could respond better. He should NOT be talking about the campaign or tactics. As a professional politician he ought to know these things. But since he doesn’t, I offer a suggestion below:
Scott Pelley: Governor, I appreciate your message very much. But that wasn’t precisely the question. You’re the CEO of this campaign. A lot of Republicans would like to know, a lot of your donors would like to know, how do you turn this thing around? You’ve got a little more than six weeks. What do you do?
Better Romney: Scott, I wish you would ask better questions so your viewers could become better informed about the issues facing our country. You haven’t asked me anything about health care reform, or tax reform, or entitlement reform, or how to make government more transparent. You haven’t asked about how to eliminate crony capitalism from our government programs. You haven’t asked about how we can create an environment in which businesses can create jobs. You haven’t asked me what our government should be doing to defend the freedoms set out in our Bill of Rights. Whether or not I run the kind of campaign people like, these are issues that we need to be discussing.
