Romney had planned to campaign against Obama in the fall by defending free enterprise. But now he finds himself having to do it in the Republican nominating contests.
His G.O.P. rivals are not only trashing President Obama as a socialist, they’ve become socialists themselves in a last desperate — and vain — attempt to bring down the front-runner, whose less-than-scintillating persona inspired one Democrat to note about Republican voters: “The dog won’t eat the dog food.” Romney’s competitors have been running around New Hampshire and South Carolina trashing Romney for doing what Republicans do: throwing people out of work and making money.
To the giddy delight of Democrats, Romney’s rivals here have softened him up for Obama by making the case that Bain is the symbol of the central problem with the American economy: corporate profits are sky-high while companies aren’t hiring much.
