Conservatives have never quite been happy with Mitt Romney on policy. Right-leaning critics worry about his past positions, or they think he provides too few specifics about how he would lower taxes, cut spending, and reform entitlements.
According to Romney-campaign insiders, the clamor may soon be quieted. After Romney returns from his trip abroad, he will ramp up his economic argument prior to the Republican National Convention. At his campaign’s Boston headquarters, fresh talking points are being finalized.
Romney’s late-summer push will focus on middle-class families and how they are faring in the Obama economy. A major policy address may be in the works, sources say, but Romney is more likely to roll out his polished stump speech via a swing-state bus tour.
