Since there is no agreement on entitlement cuts, let the fiscal cliff kick in. Let taxes rise on 100 percent of Americans and 100 percent of small businesses.

Mitt Romney opened the general election campaign last night in Manchester, New Hampshire, using his acceptance speech to unleash a fierce attack on Barack Obama's "false promises and failed leadership." He said little about his own policies, preferring to contrast his free enterprise vision with what he called Obama's government-centered vision. After the absurd charge that under Obama, we will have "effectively ceased to be a free enterprise economy," Romney made his defense of privilege: "Those who promise to spread the wealth around only ever succeed in spreading poverty." What world is he living in?
