One of the points made was that Obama and the Democrats were planning to emphasize Romney's experience as someone who dismantled companies and/or sold off the pieces. I guess the idea here is that Romney was supposedly responsible for some folks losing their jobs. What I'm sure the ads won't point out is that some of these companies were going under anyway and that sometimes cutting away the waste saved jobs that would have been lost otherwise.
“It will be a huge battle, and I think it will be a scorched earth campaign on both sides,” said New Hampshire-based Republican consultant Mike Dennehy.
“Romney will push to turn it into a referendum on Obama’s mishandling of the economy, and Obama is going to make Romney out to be the rich, uncaring business guy,” Dennehy added.
Am I missing something? I look at this portion of the multitude of experience Romney has as some of what I ADMIRE MOST.
Recently in one of Romney's Town Hall meetings and for the life of me because he has done SO MANY, I can't remember which one, he talked about the birth of Staples. I remember him stating that they began in the back of an old King's Department store warehouse with all used furniture and equipment. I remember him saying something like, "Every investment dollar had to be spent wisely and be accounted for". If you don't do this, you don't stay in business.
It's obvious to me, that when it comes to business, the man lives for efficiency and getting the most out of each buck.
Now, lets look to a Romney Presidency and how those skills will transfer to policy. Just off the top of my head....eliminating agencies that are inefficient or in many cases duplicate services supplied by other agencies...
We all remember the jokes about contractors charging $40 for screw drivers and $5 apiece for bolts just as an example, How do you suppose waste like that would fare in a Romney administration?
