Mitt Romney lays out his plans for Jobs and Tax Cuts in Detroit (FULL VIDEO 02-24-12)

GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney outlined his plan for tackling government spending, creating jobs and cutting taxes in a policy speech in Detroit, Mich. He also addressed his ideas for protecting Medicare and Social Security for future generations.

Romney proposed an overhaul of the U.S. tax system to create a "flatter, fairer, simpler tax system," cutting all tax rates by 20% and limiting deductions for the wealthy.

I found myself applauding and cheering more than once during Romney's stellar address to the Detroit Economic Club.

His performance was a classic example of "the whole is greater than the sum of its parts." The individual parts/proposals were excellent. But the WHOLE PACKAGE--delivered by a man of such obvious achievement, drive, and conviction--was simply thrilling for anyone who, like me, believes that the federal government MUST undergo a major course correction asap.

The overall impression Romney gave was that of a strong, articulate, smart LEADER. He'll actually DO what he promises, if given the chance. That's why the Washington Establishment (of both parties) is terrified of him. That's why the entertainers & personalities on talk-radio & TV don't understand him or know how to relate to him. As president, he'd be a "resolute" Do-er/Executive in Chief. That should scare just about everyone who thrives on milking or mocking "business as usual" in D.C.

Romney's response to the final question was pitch perfect. Not only is he the BEST candidate to beat Obama, he is the ONLY candidate who can beat Obama. It's enormously difficult to defeat any incumbent president. Romney knew that going into this race, and he knows it now. But he's a fierce competitor. If anyone can get the job done in November 2012, it will be him.

Most reports are saying it fell flat, and school kids were bused in to fill the crowd. Why the heck did he book a football stadium for only 1000 people who showed up?

Anon @ 6:39 pm: Did you listen to the speech? Or are you just reporting on reporters? They wouldn't know a recognize a comprehensive conservative economic policy vision if it ran them over with a Cadillac. Make that two Cadillacs.

Great speech! I'm a business owner and with these proposals my bottom line would grow and that will only keep me investing my money into my business, employees, and the business of others. This is why I want a business man in the White House at long last. Exciting proposals!

Publius Nemo said...

I might add I will bring back overseas earnings as well if these proposal become law. Like I said, for people in my shoes this is EXCITING! And it will create a robust economy which is exciting to everyone who wants to work and get ahead.

already opponents such as santorum, glenn beck, and others are attacking the individual parts of the plan. of course the individual parts by themselves are not good. However taken as a whole it is an excellent plan.

we tea partiers are asking for revolution in the tax code. romne is doing just that, and of course, it won't make everyone happy but it is a good plan.

Publius Nemo said...

any cut in taxes is good no matter how the pundits spin it. these are the same characters that echoed Bush's one time criticism of supply side economics as Voodoo Economics.

Romney is going to cut NPR so don't even think you will get a honest assessment out of those guys.

This event was relocated from the Westin Hotel to accomodate the record high number of ticket requests.

It was then relocated again due to Secret Service concerns about security at the second venue.

The ABR media is focusing on the 60,000-plus empty seats rather than the record number of people - 1200 - who attended the speech.

I hate to sound like a conspiracy theorist, but I wouldn't be at all surprised if Team Obama had something to do with the Secret Service's decision to move the event to a football stadium.

I wouldn't put anything past those sleazeballs on Team Obama.

BTW, it was a phenomenal speech by Romney, one of his best ever.

Who knew taxes and the economy could be so moving?

I really don't understand the criticism about the size of the stadium. That is so silly.

That picture of Romney in the video clip reminds me that he seems to have been chosen right out of central casting to play the role of POTUS in a movie.

And make no mistake about it, that is one of the main reasons that Obama and the Dems fear him so much.

As Donald Trump said just the other day, "Romney looks like a President, and whether we like it or not, that is very important."

At least Mitt did not plant nuns in his audience for the camera to pan to.

The Obama team has no direct control over the Secret Service. The Secret Service recommends, but does not force candidate to do anything, unless there is imminent danger. The Romney team was simply following the recommendations of the Secret Service. (Privately, I was very relieved when Romney was assigned Secret Service protection.)

Five schools showed up to the event, all together they only brought about 60 attendants. I am a 14 year old who asked to go with my High School (Brother Rice High School) but I chose to buy my own ticket instead because my school was only allowing juniors and seniors to make the trip. When Rick Santorum had his Detroit Economic Club speech, there was no more than 300 in attendance. Mitt Romney's original location sol out in under 9 minutes so they had to move it to Ford Field. It was basically empty because it was a special event. Seating in the stands was too risky according to Secret Service. They had to serve lunch after his speech so there was a fan base that they could serve.He was originally going to speak in the atrium but secret service feared that it was too small so they moved him out to the Field. They audience base was actually very large and compact.
