ACTUALLY......Mitt Romney is doing it again.  He's making statements regarding what he would do to ignite the economy if he is elected President, but not telling anyone how he plans to do so.  In an interview with CNN he said: "I can absolutely make the case that now is the time for something dramatic and it is not the time to grow government. It’s the time to create the incentives and the opportunities for entrepreneurs and businesses big and small to hire more people and that’s going to happen.’’ Problem here, as usual, Governor Romney is skating around the issue and is not releasing specifics for his economic plans.  Could it be that he has no plan??

Romney continues to downplay President Obama's tax plan that would preserve tax cuts for all
Americans except those who earn more that $250,000.  Romney wants to preserve tax cuts for everyone - one small thing though, he hasn't said how he would pay for this. Romney says ‘‘The great majority of small businesses pay taxes at the individual rate so as Obama raises these taxes ‘‘on the wealthy’’ he is raising taxes on small business.’’  Are there many small business that make more than $250,000??

Romney criticizes Obama for not visiting Israel since 2008, during his last campaign.  At that time Obama received a warm reception from the Israeli president who said his fondest wish was for a “great president of the United States.”

When Romney was in Israel recently he caused accusations of racism from the Palestinians when he said "that cultural differences help explain the economic disparity between Israelis and Palestinians".

Was that "dramatic" enough for you Mitt?
