The Romney campaign reveals that a mastery of Powerpoint does not, in itself, translate to mastery of Venn diagrams.
We all get the point -- if you plug the 5.6 percent unemployment projection into a job calculator, millions more people are owed jobs. The Bernstein-Romer paper is to the Romney campaign what the longbow was to Henry V's army. Damn it, though -- a Venn diagram overlays two subjects and reveals what they have in common.
That said, it's a distracting image and it refers to the issue Romney wants to run on. The pivot away from health care is on.
