    America isn't a business and numerous politicians can make vague claims about willingness to form a consensus. An extra billion dollars of federal aid helped romney revitalize a scandalous and mismanaged Olympics.

    How come financial success is only a sign of qualification if you're a republican?

    You seem to be making it up as you go along. Have you actually read much about those Olympics or have you just read Leftist headlines?

Jon Huntsman would have done a far better job than Romney did.
    Jon Huntsman should have run as a Democrat. Romney is closer to Conservative values.

    Oh, yes, Romney's wealth was used against him implying he was not 'a man of the people'. That's why, with $100,000,000.00 dollars in the bank, Hillary claims she is struggling to makes ends meet and will fight for income equality (though not effecting her own income) and the War on Women. Real issues like the debt, open borders, Middle East, etc. will be ignored or rendered meaningless with her meandering platitudes.

    There are many areas of the economy that should be looked at in a business-like manner. Income and outgoing expenses being a couple of the basics. The lack of business experience has to contributed to the economic mess and moral malaise we see in America today.

    And yet liberals remember FDR, a member of New Yorks richest upper class families, as one of the greatest presidents of all time

    Maybe, perhaps after he decided to run for president as a Republican and changed a whole lot of his stances on different issues. Romney doing this has created a trust factor, even within his own party. That trust factor defeated him in the Republican Primaries in 2008. In 2012 Romney had the organization and the money, in many states he outspent his opponents by 10-1, that is all his opponents combined. He won the nomination, lost the election.

    But that trust factor stayed with him. I seen it in Georgia, quite a lot of Georgia Republicans didn't trust him. Sure they voted for him vs. Obama. But they showed no energy, no enthusiasm. In fact any Tom, Dick or Harry would have done.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Interesting article. My favorite parts:

    "Voters are annoyed with Obama’s stilted ideology and the strong odor of incompetence"

    "Call Mitt Romney what you will, but his core competence is just that: competence. Unlike career politicians who tend to rise or fall on the level of their oratory, Mitt is, at his core, a chief executive"

    "No doubt Mitt is more comfortable tackling complex problems and analyzing data than kissing babies or yucking it up on a rope line. But maybe that's what America needs in 2016, and given the multitude of today's challenges..."
