Volt Point

by David Gelernter

Lehrer denouncing “noisy distracting things” like applause is intellectualism all over. It cuts the speakers off from the audience. Why on earth have an audience? Romney has to challenge slimeball assertions.

“The U.S. auto industry has come roaring back.” That’s not what I hear. (How are Chevy Volt sales going?)

He says that he’s making education better. Then how come the international survey, summer before last, showed us losing to Estonia? The schools have never been more grossly mediocre.

Obama will raise energy production? Then what about the Keystone pipeline (and a million other projects)? Romney said “the president pointed out correctly . . .” Great phrase. Respectful but duly surprised.
