Romney could be on a dangerous path

For those who believe the once-reasonable Mitt Romney has been body-snatched, it is worth reading this recent interview with him in Fortune magazine. In it, Romney lays out a strong critique of President Obama and a reasonably coherent top-line economic plan.

The interview plays to Romney's strength: He sounds like a pragmatic problem solver. The problem, of course, is that this interview is so at odds with his on-going courtship of the Tea Party and his overheated rhetoric about how Obama is destroying capitalism. More interviews like this one and he could be dangerous.
