Dean Barnett offers a scathing assessment of the Romney campaign today. I don’t want to focus on that here, instead his closing:

I hope Mr. Romney does well enough in Michigan today that he gets the opportunity to introduce the public to the real Mitt Romney. He is a wonderful and gifted guy. It would be nice if he and his campaign allowed the voters in on that secret.

If Mitt Romney’s closing speech to the Detroit Economic Club is the real, Mitt Romney, then we have an even bigger problem then we thought. Byron York had this analysis of the speech:

Romney’s proposals might not be music to the ears of free-market conservatives who believe Detroit made its own problems and needs to fix itself. But it’s what a lot of people in Michigan want to hear.

In other words, Romney ran to the left telling "a lot of people [what they] want to hear." If this is the real Mitt Romney, still telling people what they want to hear, abandoning his new refound principles, then just wait until a general election.
