    RUNNING THE GOV’T NOT LIKE RUNNING A BUSINESS.

    Romney believes just because he turn around businesses and create jobs the can turn around the gov’t and create jobs. The Federal Government is not a business. If he cannot run a state Government, how can we expect he can run a state government.
    When Mitt Romney was governor, Massachusetts lost 40,000 manufacturing jobs, a rate twice the national average, and fell to 47th in job creation, fourth from the bottom.

    Mitt Romney blasted China for taking American jobs. “They’ve been able to put American businesses out of business and kill American jobs,”
    Bain Capital, the private equity firm that Romney headed, played its own part in sending jobs to low-wage countries, including China. In fact, Bain “invested in a series of firms that specialized in relocating jobs done by American workers to new facilities in low-wage countries like China and India.”

    In one example, Bain was the largest shareholder in a company called Modus Media, which “specialized in helping companies outsource their manufacturing“:
    Other companies that Bain invested in sent jobs all over the world, including to Ireland and Mexico, while Romney has tried to claim that Bain was all about creating jobs and turning around American companies that otherwise would have gone under.

    Is Romney’s plan to crate jobs, balance the budget and pay down the debt by using cheap Illegal Aliens? “Old habits die hard.”

    Well, since it's never been run like a business and it's failing big time let's just try it, K. Stupid is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

    Obama can't fix anything, he's made it worse. So let's give the businessman a try and see if his ideas work. It sure as heck can't be any worse than what we have now. Cronie Chicago Politicians that lie, cheat, take payoffs and are some of the most corrupt politicians that exist.

    Time for a change. :)

    We did.

    Under Coolidge, Hoover, Reagan, and GW Bush.

    It was disasterous each and every time.

    Massachusetts tried it too. They had a "big business" governor...that was 47th in job creation. Probably why he won't talk about his time there.

    Spot on!

    "Government should be run like a business"

    One person said it... It sounded intelligent to simple minded folk...and Waboom! It kind of reminds me of the Chicken Little story

    Governing a Nation with diverse peoples, conditions, rights, freedomes and privaleges is no where as easy as running a business, which isnt all that easy either.
