Romney for…Congress?

One reason Mitt Romney may be sinking in the polls is that he seems unsure for which office he ought to be running. I see the other day he gave a speech, where he promised, if elected as President, to make sure “In God We Trust” is not removed from U.S. coins. According to the Constitution, though, Mitt as President doesn’t have much to say about coining money; that’s the baliwick of Congress:

Article I, Section 8: The Congress shall have Power…To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures.

He might be doing better in the polls if he’d stick to spelling out things he could actually do if he’s elected.
