The problem isn't one of poor salesmanship.
The problem is that Romney is a lousy product.
This is a similar thought I had recently. A conservative friend of mine is all in for Romney and he made a recent facebook post that ended with, "We need a businessman to run the show."
I responded with the following: "Really? I thought the businessman was already running the show, considering that he caused the meltdown in Wall Street and got bailed out for it."
Then I thought some more about the "businessman" in the White House idea and concluded that America never needs a businessman in the White House. America always needs a statesman in the White House.
The businessman idea is a lousy product.
The Repubs sold George W. Bush in 2000 with the same line of bull.
They said that America needed a businessman in the White House.
We've been there and done that.
What did we get with businessman George W. Bush in the White House?
A trillion dollar war that killed thousands and accomplished nothing
A housing crisis
A banking crisis
The worst recession in 70 years
Surpluses that turned to deficits
The doubling of the National Debt
Now the Repubs want to put another businessman in the White House?
And have him implement the same failed Bush policies?
They must really think we're pretty darn stupid.
They're wrong on all points.
