    Paul Ryan is an example of the people Romney will select for his advisers. Unlike what we have seen in the Obama administration. Let’s take a look at the swinging door administration.

    1. Obama’s economic team. Here we have Director of Economic Council. Larry Summers who lasted from January, 2009 until Dec, 2010 and had a hard time getting along with people and then Gene Sperling took over in Jan. 2011. Then there were Chairpersons of Economic advisers, Christine Romer, Jan, 2009, to Sept. 2010, until Austan Goolsbee took over from that Sept until Aug. 2011 and Alan Krueger on Nov. 2011.

    2. Peter Orszag, Director of OMB lasted over a year from Jan.2009 until July 2010 before taking a job as Vice Chairman with City Group and Jeffrey Zients held the job as acting Director from July until Nov. when Jacob Lew took over. He lasted until Jan. 2012 and then becam White House Chief of Staff and Zients appeared on the scene again.

    3. The Jobs Council, consisting of 22 members (or did) and CEO Jeffrey Immelt of GE as the Director (or was). Some of the business leaders did not embrace Obama. Obama did not enorce some of the recommendations of the Job Council..
    Part of Councils political value was to show the American people Obama was working closely with the top business people.
    But those at the White House insisted ot would lead to real action. The last met in January.

    4. Van Jones, Green Jobs Czar, admitted communist didn’t last long after he was outted an a controversy ensued.

    5. The sheep. Not necessarily known to have their own thoughts, but can read a memo and follow directions, we have Eric Holder, Janet Napolitano, Timothy Geithner, and the prominent intellectual, Joseph Biden. Biden does go off course and sometimes has to sit in the “Time Out “ chair.

    These are some of the selections that made up the appointments of the Obama administration. One would need a scorecard to say the least, but it is interesting to say the least. Compare this to steady and firm Mitt Romney whose first choice is Paul Ryan, an expert in his field and everyone respects.

    I think I would say Romney has the talent of picking the right people for the right time in history and many of you would agree. Romney has always surrounded himself with experts and that is what we need.

    It's hard to have an economic team of communists, so they have to hide it and when it becomes public, they resign.....

    So far Romney’s ‘experts’ are doing a lousy job of running a presidential campaign.

    When you think about it, most Democrats at the political level are pretty much assholes.

    Romney just went to North Carolina where over 10,000 came out to hear him and Ryan. Biden had an appearance where 600 showed up.

    I think Romney has been waiting to run his ads until later once people are ready to think about the election. By then, Obama will have spent his wad.
