Why We Need Mitt

In an unabashed love letter to Mitt Romney in today’s Wall Street Journal, Holman W. Jenkins Jr. maintains hope for the candidate. He writes that the Gingrich surge has actually led mainstream media to paint a more nuanced portrait of Mitt. “Mr. Romney never really fit his assigned part as Gordon Gekko … His Bain Capital period has already been in the rearview mirror for 12 years. When other private equity pioneers were turning their millions into billions, he left to rescue the Winter Olympics.” And Romney’s record as a successful turnaround artist make him exactly what the country needs: “His strong suit has always been to do what everyone else has put off.”
