Today, a young man asked Newt Gingrich a question about what changes he could make in eight years as president that would affect his generation. Unfortunately, Newt and the crowd made light of it. Perhaps it was not phrased very tactfully, but it was a good question nonetheless.
My children are of this young man's generation. I, too, am concerned about what their future will be like, if Washington continues on the same path. I believe Romney would have used the question to great benefit. He likes to talk about his grandchildren, and how one of the reasons he is running is because he is concerned for their future. Many people believe that Romney will be just another status-quo, moderate, do-nothing Republican. They say he won't ruffle too many feathers.
I sure hope they are wrong, and I believe they are. We Publish Postneed only look at the past to know that Romney is anything but a do-nothing man. We also know that he has well-considered plans to deal with our problems, and that as governor, he kept his campaign promises.
Romney would have taken the young man seriously, because it is serious. Romney is in the race to actually make a difference.
