Romney tries to regain footing and focus on economy
Mitchell LandsbergNEW YORK — Mitt Romney won the Republican nomination for president chiefly by being a steady hand, the tortoise amid so many hares. Others could bolt ahead and inevitably stumble; Romney plowed forward, relentlessly.
He is still fairly unflappable, and nobody could ever call him flighty. But as the general election nears, his campaign has seemed to be searching for its footing, venturing into territory in recent days that is far afield from the economic issues that, by virtually every account, will decide the election.
Romney returned to that central theme Thursday in a speech at a campaign rally in Fairfax, Va., telling supporters that voting for him offered the best choice to get the economy moving again. And he directly confronted President Obama's main argument against him: that he is a fabulously wealthy capitalist who is out of touch with ordinary Americans — and would line the pockets of the wealthy if elected.
