The Romney campaign is turning every political/policy discussion into an opportunity to bring up the bad economy. I have been hoping, praying, and pleading for this to happen for quite a while, so this news makes me glad. Perhaps, this means that Team Romney reads A Chequer-Board of Nights and Days and has decided to take campaign advice from me. If so, I welcome their readership, and will try to give the best advice possible. I’ll even refrain from requesting a retainer for my services, though if the Romney campaign insists on giving me one, I shall try not to object.
