Romney's Big Gamble

A Wall Street Journal editorial says Mitt Romney left the GOP convention with unfinished business.

"The immediate media consensus, especially on the political right, seems to be that Mitt Romney 'did what he had to do' in his GOP convention speech Thursday. He repaired an image battered by Obama attack ads, showed he appreciates women, defended Bain Capital and criticized President Obama more in sorrow than in anger. On to the White House!"

"Well, maybe. Mr. Romney's speech did hit all of those essential points, but the one thing it didn't do constitutes a major political gamble. Neither he nor the entire GOP convention made a case for his economic policy agenda. He and Paul Ryan promised to help the middle class, but they never explained other than in passing how they would do it."
