    In his new book, "The Great Deformer, former Reagan budget director David Stockman directly addressed and refutes Mitt Romney's stated primary qualification for being able to turn the economy around. Specifically, Stockman deals not only with Romney's claim to be a businessman, he deals with the whole concept of crony capitalism and how LBO have corrupted Wall Street by allowing men to become rich while not creating any wealth or overall economic benefit in the process.

    IMHO, Mitt Romney is essentially a salesman. And there's nothing inherently wrong with that. But when the salesman/candidate tries to sell anything (including himself) by offering false information about his qualifications and running commercials (like Romeny's ads about Jeep) which make a mockery of the truth, people are right to question that candidate's central qualifications for higher office. And that's whether or not the candidate is trustworthy enough for the American people to entrust him to the office to which he aspires.

    Below is an excerpt of Stockman's book in Newsweek's article as well as the Daily Beast website link below.

    I suggest that people actually READ the article prior to commenting.

    For anyone who's interesting in reading Stockman's book, it won't be published until March 2013.
