With the exception of Ross Perot, Romney is a far more successful man in his private endeavors than just about every individual who's ever run for the presidency in this country's history. But what makes someone a better candidate is not his resume - it's the political knowledge gleaned from years of experience in the field. There are many political judgments that can't be outsourced. Because Romney lacked the (election-winning) experience to know any better, he chose the wrong advisers, and they lost the election for him.
One thing I clearly remember being said about Mitt is that he can’t close the deal. He was very successful closing in business, but not in politics. From what I’ve read, he was never interested in politics, instead devoting his life to doing missions for his church.
Oh well, not much we can do about anything now. Obama owns this - the people who voted for him - own this and the only one obama can now blame for the last 4 years is himself.
You make good points. Even Reagan lost a few times and gained valuable experience as a candidate. He carried heavy duty respect by the time he ran in 1980 .
Well what frickin’ seasoning did Barry have before he ran in 08????
