    The last and only two Presidents we've had that were actual and self-proclaimed businessmen were Herbert Hoover and George Walker Bush. And how did they turn out?

    Both their Presidency's were COLOSSAL FAILURES.

    We have to face it, the modern-day Republican meme that says that "we need a businessman to run the country" just. doesn't. work. Running a country is NOTHING like running a business.

    When will the hard RWers get this through their thick skulls? I don't know.

    im not saying it works but the model of businessman isnt fully described in this half ass thread. Can Romney be a businessman and a good leader, yes, because success in business is helped by being a good leader. Businesses use many many talents and sometimes u might be weak in one skill or talent but be successful with another talent or skill/ the problem wit the OP as a poster is his description of the business man is NOT fully described OR where he is attempting to point the finger at which skill hes trying to demean Romney for.

    Really? Your response is MORE lies?

    Get a clue batch...

    List of Presidents of the United States by occupation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Look for the keywords "investor" and "businessman"

    Then get a clue on the DISMAL history of self-proclaimed and actual businessman in Office...
