The debates are Governor Romney’s last chance to turn around his flagging campaign. He must communicate what he has so far failed to convey—his vision to give Americans a better life and deal with tough challenges, like the financial meltdown and the Arab Spring, that are unforeseeable when presidents are chosen.
Mr. Romney made his fortune in private equity, and to most Americans, the benefits of such activities are much more difficult to grasp than those of a Steve Jobs. In the confusion, President Obama has unfairly painted the Governor as a man who got rich sending American jobs to China.
What Mr. Obama does not tell voters is that as the nation’s CEO he repeatedly spent US stimulus dollars in China that were intended to create American jobs. For example, components for government-financed wind turbines and materials for construction projects.
