    “CAN A BUSINESSMAN FIX THE ECONOMY?”
    The Week. June 15,2012.
    Does America need a “CEO in Chief?”


    Bain Capital, Romney’s private equity firm, made rich investors richer by buying struggling companies, laying off workers and driving the company into the ground.
    “Romney economic didn’t work in Massachusetts and it won’t work now.” Massachusetts ranked 47th out of 50 states. His four year in Massachusetts are a gaping “hole to Romney’s resume.”
    Its’ true that Massachusetts lost manufacturing jobs under Romney from 2003 to 2007, but the state’s employment figures had been to free fall for two years before he become Governor, and “the average annual rate of loss lowed every year doing his tenure, (isn’t that he same as Obama claiming that he inherited a failing economy from Bush when he took office, that he has been attacked for?)
    Timothy Egan; “A business background is more often than not a prelude to a disastrous president.” Our economy has boomed under presidents that had no business experience at all, including Franklin Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower, Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton. Businessmen Herbert Hoover and George W. Bush gave us the two worst financial crises in history. …“the less experience in business , the better the president
    Romney has already revealed what he would do to revive the economy if elected…cut taxes for the rich by 20%, deeply cut domestic spending for the needy under Paul Ryan radical “path to prosperity” program. If you believe in trickle-down economics, Romney is your man.

    Suggesting that people get off welfare and get a job is heartless. That's the government message.

    Let's see. A businessman with a solid track record - as per Willie Clinton - vs. the community agitator in chief who'd be highly challenged running a lemonade stand? It remains to be seen where the folks in Hyde Park let him park his new stand come January.

    The message this evil and reprehensible regime intends to send is that people in business are evil so don't be evil and be a success in business. Be good. Be a government dependent.

    Seriously? Dems are actually asking this question? LOL

    Let's see:

    A. Successful businessman with an awesome resume of success

    or

    B. A community organizer who never had a job

    That's an EASY choice.

    Yeah, what we really need is someone with ZERO business experience and no executive experience as well...oh, wait...that's what we have now! How's THAT working out?

    42 months of unemployment over 8%...GDP grinding along at 1%...yearly deficits of a trillion plus dollars...the first credit downgrade in our nation's history...four dollar a gallon gas? Why would ANYONE want four more years of THAT?

    It is obvious that you don't have a clue as to who the people are that is on welfare. They are mostly single mothers with no job training and no programs for them to train and not baby sitting subsidies to assist them in working. Then there are the disabled who cannot work. Single men and womne without children do not qualify for TANF but they go to the County for help and it is usually a one time thing. Why do you think there are so many homeless men and women? No welfare to sit on.
    Romney is out of touch also because he has never been on welfare but he should know something about it.:eusa_hand:
