Romney’s Four Missions

by Ramesh Ponnuru

At Bloomberg View, I lay out what they were and try to assess how well he did. (Short answer: pretty well.) I close by raising one concern:

The Romney campaign seems to think that once Americans see Romney as likable, they will trust him to be president. They may be right. Or it may be the other way around: Not until they trust him to promote their interests will they find him likable. This is what I suspect. I would have preferred for Romney to spend more time making the case for how his agenda would help the country. But maybe what he said about it was just good enough.
