It’s not that I don’t like Mitt Romney. I’m certain that he’s a good American and would be a terrific neighbor.
But take this. When he says,
“I have spent most of my life outside of politics, dealing with real problems in the real economy,”
All I can say is…”Go back!”
Is this all you got against Perry, Mitt? You’ve worked in the private sector more than he has? You’re running for a government job. Specifically, head of the federal Executive Branch. Did you know the Presidency is, like, the national version of being a state’s governor?
Did you know that…Gov. Romney?
Perry has been running Texas’s executive branch for over a decade! (Possibly) apart from governing California, there is no other job on earth which gives a better feel for what a Presidency would be like.
This “most of my life outside of politics” jawboning is pathetic. Both men served as chief executives of a government, and they’re campaigning to be chief executive of a government. Why give a rat’s patootie about resumes when there’s ample job performance to study?
Is there? Sure there is.
Romney’s Massachusetts ranked 47th out of 50 states in job creation. Well, Governor?
Romney blames the poor job numbers on Democrats in the Massachusetts state legislature.
Oh. Well, thank God there are no Democrats in Congress, then!
And…apparently none in Texas’s legislature, either? Or else, when it comes to jobs, Rick can handle Democrats but Mitt can’t.
Which is it, Mr. Romney? If all you’ve got is more “real economy” experience than a much more successful governor…please, go back to that real economy.
For all our sakes.
