Not Forgetting Manufacturing

On a campaign swing through Ohio, Mitt Romney asserts the importance of manufacturing:
"Manufacturing is big part of Ohio, and of course, its history," Romney said. "I happen to believe that going forward over the coming decade, you're going to see a lot of manufacturing come back to America.
"If we finally crack down on China for cheating, if we also take advantage of the extraordinary energy resources we have here, and therefore low-cost energy, we'll be able to compete with people around the world," Romney said. "I think you're going to find Ohio, and particularly states that are right to work states, bringing a lot of manufacturing jobs back."
These comments seem to indicate Romney's openness to the idea that the current globalist regime might not really be "free trade" after all.  It will be interesting to see how hard he will hit Obama on this issue (especially regarding China policy) in the months ahead.
