Mitt Romney is delivering a rabble-rousing stemwinder describing Washington as an out of control bastion of liberalism. He isn’t talking about Democrats; he is attacking liberals. Wow. We haven’t heard campaign speeches like this since Bush versus Dukakis, when pollsters discovered that the word “liberal” had a higher unfavorable rating than the word “communist.” Some of this is overdone, of course. But if the Democrats let the race slip into a contest between “liberals” and “conservatives” — the trap that Bill Clinton was absolutely determined to avoid — they are in trouble.
