Mitt Romney started to lay out his energy plan at a Tuesday event, but because there were reporters in the room, he decided against doing so. During a Houston fundraiser, Romney told a room of about 125 donors that he planned to unveil his comprehensive energy plan this week. He said his proposal will specifically relate to fossil-based fuels. But then, he said no more. "I know that we have members of the media here right now, so I’m not going to go through that in great detail," Romney said, according to a pool report from the event.Because we the voters might find out what it is and have a chance to evaluate it -- and that just isn't done in Mitt Romney's version of democracy.
In fact, I believe the default setting, enunciated personally by Willard, is that virtually all issues are to be discussed "privately" and not allowed to be contemplated by those who may or may not vote for him.
That's healthy in any democracy that goes beyond being "self-styled" as one.
