Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

Mitt Romney told a crowd in Plymouth, New Hampshire yesterday that he isn’t for George W. Bush economics:

“I’m not for tax cuts for the rich. The rich can take care of themselves. I want to get America working again. And so I want to make sure that whatever we do in the tax code, we’re not giving a windfall to the very wealthy.”

To be clear, Romney on the same day made plain he favors the Bush tax cuts. But in his remarkably moderate tone and the flexibility he’s allowing himself to govern, Romney puts himself in position to pursue genuinely sane policies, a la George H.W. Bush, who compromised on higher taxes in 1990 and set the stage for much of the economic growth that followed.
