Must Read Op-Eds for Tuesday, January 3, 2012

01/03/12 06:20AM

MITT, THE PAISLEY TIGERBY FRANK BRUNINEW YORK TIMESTo watch deliver his gauzy stump speech is to behold a beautifully framed, impeccably coiffed blur: a vague shimmer of presidential-looking light that means everything and nothing. The takeaway from the speech? Romney good. America great. Obama bad. America in trouble. He doesn’t delve into the soporific specifics pouring out of Rick Santorum, who wouldn’t know a sound bite if it ripped off his sweater vest. So you can fill in the blanks as you like. read more
