Fully 57 of Mitt Romney’s 59 policy proposals to fix the American economy are as indistinguishable as Heinz’s 57 varieties of ketchup (and a lot less fun than Hitchcock’s 39 Steps). They are absolute standard-issue Republican dogma—reduce corporate taxes, pass the free-trade agreements with South Korea, Colombia and Panama (have you ever seen a prediction of how many jobs our free-trade agreement with Panama would create, even excluding the number of jobs it would destroy? Does it ascend beyond single digits?), repeal Obamacare, kneecap unions—utterly usual, utterly unsurprising.
