Liberals have been bashing Mitt Romney and Republicans for some time for having no specific economic program tailored to current conditions -- Romney does have an economic program (free trade agreements, low taxes, etc.), but none of it, liberals say, is anything different than what Romney would be advocating if unemployment was a 5%. What about that? Do you think government policy should react to current conditions (as liberals certainly do, at least in part), or is the current conservative position that there's a set of objectively good policies regardless of current context, and the best thing to do is to attempt to implement those policies whenever you can?
