Yet following two important rulings from the Supreme Court recently, Mitt Romney’s plan to win has become clearer: Talk as much as possible about the economy, and avoid details on everything else.
Romney’s spokesman tied himself in knots trying to take a position on a Supreme Court ruling on the controversial Arizona immigration law.
When the court upheld the Affordable Care Act, Romney repeated his vow to “repeal and replace” without explaining what the “replace” part would look like.
