romney's divine intervention

The hell with the fact that Mitt Romney is a Mormon. Or that he is a blatant flip-flopper who has gone from "more liberal than Ted Kennedy" to "more conservative than Ronald Reagan."

What's really a concern is what he imagines is a good economic policy.

Eugene Robinson comes up with a great phrase in describing Romney's idea that spending billions for research into energy will create new technologies that will make a bunch of new jobs and all. As Robinson said, asked about the economy, "Romney went all deus ex machina".

I like that phrase - Mitt "deus ex machina" Romney. Hoping for a miracle to make such an economic policy feasible. Similarly, he said in the interview in question that in order to raise money for these billions of dollars of energy research, he'd cut federal job training programs.

Oh, that'll help.
