Is Mitt Romney clock-blocking Obama?

Is Mitt Romney clock-blocking Obama? — In other words, is the GOP candidate trying to block Obama’s chance at re-election by merely running out the clock and allowing the poor economic climate to do the president in rather than offering a bold contrast? Conservative columnist George Will thinks so. He also thinks it’s a bad strategy. TheDC’s Jeff Poor reports:

Will added that Romney can’t win by just running out the clock. “On the other hand, Gov. Romney seems to be risk-averse. He seems to be in something of a four-quarter stall, that almost killed basketball,” he continued. “So, they put in a 30-second shot clock. But you can’t get the NCAA Championship — you can’t get to the presidency — running out the clock.”
