Nothing here you haven’t heard before but it’s so rare these days to stumble across an engaging, concise, confident presentation on economic issues by a top Republican that he deserves some extra publicity for it. Yeah, he voted for TARP, and yeah, he voted for that awful confiscatory tax on the AIG bonuses, but he’s made to order as a message man: Young, comfortable talking about the economy, and not from the south. More TV time, please.
