Larry Kudlow April 18, 2012:

In my latest interview with former Governor Mitt Romney, he emphatically defends his own business success against Obama’s class warfare/Buffett Rule/Romney Rule attacks. Don’t look for Mitt to back off from his free enterprise vision.

Mitt Romney’s ‘No Teleprompter, No Text’ Jobs Speech: Bold & Comprehensive

Gov Mitt Romney emphasizes his 'no teleprompter, no prepared text' jobs creation speech by holding up his one page of notes. Romney rolled out a comprehensive jobs plan to a large crowd at McCandless Intl Trucks in Las Vegas, NV. Sept 6, 2021 (photo by Julie Jacobson/AP)


DAY ONE, JOB ONE

He said it would be bold and sweeping.

He was right.

59 points contained in a 160 page book…

It was a stunning revelation as Mitt Romney outlined his much–anticipated, comprehensive jobs plan to modernize the wheezing American economic engine.

From Las Vegas, NV, a state crippled with 12.9% unemployment, 300 people crowded into a warehouse at McCandless International Trucks to listen to Gov Romney. Delivered without prepared text or a teleprompter, Romney elaborated at length on his vision for American prosperity – from just one page of notes. He spoke on taxes, regulation, trade, energy, fiscal policy, etc. He also outlined what he would do to spur job growth on his first day as President of the United States:

At best, government can provide a framework in which economic growth can occur. All too often, however, government gets in the way,” Romney wrote Tuesday in an opinion piece in USA Today that previewed his 160-page plan. “The past three years of unparalleled government expansion have retaught that lesson all too well.”
[...]
Romney planned to use the plan’s rollout to contrast his candidacy with his Republican rivals and present a comprehensive outline for fixing the economy just as Obama prepares to unveil his jobs initiative on Thursday.

Mitt Romney Plays Hardball on ‘The Kudlow Report’


Larry Kudlow, host of CNBC’s The Kudlow Report, hosted a quick-paced interview with Gov Mitt Romney this evening. Prior to the program, Romney gave us the ‘heads up’ with a couple of tweets:

@Larry_Kudlow Looking forward to being on @thekudlowreport today to discuss jobs and the economy #Mitt2012

Great talking to @Larry_Kudlow today. Watch @CNBC @thekudlowreport tonight at 7pm. http://twitpic.com/4k4xr8 #Mitt2012

Kudlow, whose program regularly features top officials from the White House and Capitol Hill, business leaders, and top journalists, played hardball with questions on the economy, whose head should roll at the White House, trade and competitiveness with China, health care, Donald Trump, and more:



Many thanks to Mitt Romney. He was tough and intense.” ~Larry Kudlow

Larry Kudlow: The Anti-Free-Market Iowa Result

From the face of the modern market:

The worst outcome in tomorrow’s Iowa caucuses for the stock market and economy would be victories by Mike Huckabee and John Edwards.

Both are anti-business, anti-Wall Street, and anti-CEO. They would employ government regulation, and perhaps taxes, to work against free-market forces.Both are anti-trade.

Both are tax-and-spend. (Governor Huckabee has tried to inoculate himself against the tax charge with his Fair Tax national sales tax idea that would go nowhere in Washington.)

The key point is that Edwards and Huckabee are the left-wing populists in the campaign on economic policy. Their victories would send up a red-flag warning signal to a stock market already beleaguered by worries about an economic slowdown and the ongoing subprime credit problem.
