Laura Ingraham hosted Larry Kudlow of CNBC.
Kudlow wrote after the convention that Romney didn't make the sale because he didn't talk about the economy and any mention was vague. He said Paul Ryan has been muzzled. He noted Romney didn't talk about tax cuts during his speech to the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. He stated that Romney should keep the theme going about getting people back to work in a thriving economy. He stated that Romney doesn't connect the dots on his policies. Ingraham said the campaign is not promoting the tax cuts because they are wary of the tax cuts for the wealthy. Kudlow said Obama has framed the arguments and defined Romney. Ingraham constrasted Romney with Reagan who had honed his arguments over years of writings and debates. Kudlow responded that Romney is smart and can make the case. He said he needs to put meat on the bones and give specifics. Ingraham added that Romney was able to convince investors to put money into various businesses and that he should speak to the voters as if they were investors.
Kudlow said he is frustrated that Romney is so lucid in interviews but not on the campaign trail. He thinks the race is winnable and that Romney is correct to attack Obama on his weak foreign policy.
