Obama Campaign Readies Post-Debate Counterpunch
But the president and his team believe that Romney, smooth onstage operator that he was, nonetheless opened himself to criticism that his tax reform, health care, and Wall Street regulation proposals are a smokescreen - all show, no substance.
Mr. Obama began prosecuting the case against Romney’s vague proposals at the debate, explaining, “He says he’s going to close deductions and loopholes for his tax plan. That’s how it’s going to be paid for but we don’t know the details. He says that he’s going to replace Dodd-Frank, Wall Street reform. But we don’t know exactly which ones. He won’t tell us. He now says he’s going to replace Obamacare and assure all the good things that are in it are going to be in there and you don’t have to worry.”
“And at some point I think the American people have to ask themselves: Is the reason that Governor Romney is keeping all these plans to replace secret because they’re too good?”
