The GOP convention preview

The theme for this year’s Republican National Convention in Tampa is We Did Build That!

It’s an interesting choice of a theme. There are a lot of options this year: Mitt Romney is running against a president who simply hasn’t gotten much right. Even the death of Osama bin Laden, it turns out, is something that he bungled, since we saw him “spike the football” about it when his poll numbers started looking scary (incidentally, they haven’t got any better since then).

But it’s a worthy message, one that puts the question of economic freedom front and center, which is appropriate, since it will be front and center in November.
