    Romney was good at turning around failing companies. Sometimes that included hiring, sometimes it included firing. Sometimes it included streamlining portions. "Stock Price" is just another way of saying "the worth of the company".

    Guys like Romney made the US business sector more efficient in the 1980's and 1990's. Even the companies that didn't get shaken up (which turned out to be a minority) made themselves better because of the competition. Again, and Again, and Again, Romney proved himself extremely good at taking on a failing organization and turning it around. Given the current state of the US Deficit and Federal Government, I'd say that's a skill-set we the US Government Shareholders might be very interested in.

    Which I think most conservatives and independents would generally agree with. Worth is superior to sloth - earning money superior to receiving it. Turning welfare into workfare is hardly some kind of off the wall screw-stay-at-home-mom's measure.

    especially when you consider that it took on failing companies... and so the baseline is not hires v fires, but rather when you realize that each job not fired was a job saved as the company survived.

    perhaps the govt should have just bailed out the ones that couldn't be saved?

    It wasn't just any comment Rosen made. She spew liberal vitriol that express the feelings of the left, who by the way are the real culprits of instigating "the war on women."

    Obama is also to blame for perpetuating the war. Now he can take the heat for it.

    I would say that's unproven. Romney claims that it's true but he hasn't provided a shred of evidence to back it up.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Umm, BS.
