Remember that old Wendy's Ad: Where's the Beef?
Well it looks like the editors of the Wall Street Journal have coined a new one for Mitt Romney:
Where's the Plan?
Mitt's Speech Gamble
By not explaining his agenda, he left an opening for Democrats.
Wall Street Journal, Editorial -- August 31, 2012
Well, maybe. Mr. Romney's speech did hit all of those essential points, but the one thing it didn't do constitutes a major political gamble. Neither he nor the entire GOP convention made a case for his economic policy agenda. He and Paul Ryan promised to help the middle class, but they never explained other than in passing how they would do it.
In his acceptance speech, Mr. Romney tossed out his five policy ideas almost as an afterthought. Energy got one sentence, education scored big with two. Neil Armstrong received almost as much speech time as what Mr. Romney would do specifically to spur faster growth and raise middle-class incomes.
Meanwhile, Mr. Obama will explain in glorious detail all of the "investments" he wants to make in schools, roads, college tuition, medical research, electric cars -- which Mr. Romney's "savage" cuts would take away.
Well, Mitt did say he was a "severe Conservative" -- did he not?
Just trust him. Yeah Riiiight! That's the Ticket ...
It seems the WSJ is not the only ones have problems with Mitt's lack of "specificity" -- even stone-hearted Republicans are starting to say: there is no there, there.

This isn't the first time Romney has been criticized for being nonspecific. Earlier this week, an opinion piece in U.S. News & World Report said that the convention speech was "was too vague and impersonal to be helpful to Governor Romney." Conservative columnist Bill Kristol told Fox News Sunday in July that "I don’t think you can beat an incumbent president, even if the economy is slow, if 27 percent of the voters think you as the challenger don’t have a clear plan for improving the economy."
With "reviews" like that -- Who needs political enemies?
Hey Mitt, want to get the people to "like you" again?
Here's an idea: Take your Economic Plan out of the Swiss vault -- along with those MIA Tax Returns.
Trust used to be a Two-way Street, Mitt. It's not built on -- My way, or the highway proclamations.
Democracy, is NOT like running Bain Capital, sorry Mitt.
We don't have to just "take it" ... we have a "clear choice."
Besides ... just Trust Me -- I'm a CEO, for Pete's sakes.
