Though not a fan of Mitt Romney, I do find valid the following observation by the estimable Lee Rodgers (whose always edifying and entertaining blog can -- and should daily -- be reached by clicking here).
Thoughtful people hoping for a president who can actually accomplish something in a leadership role should be considering the respective backgrounds of the candidates.
Mitt Romney built, from the ground up, a hugely successful business enterprise that created thousands of jobs.
What has Barack Obama ever actually DONE? Besides and before bedazzling those enchanted by either his complexion or white guilt . . . what?
And this, from Don Kates, a liberal Democrat and eminent civil rights attorney:
The one outstanding characteristic Romney has is that he is not Barack Obama.
Or to put the case for Romney in its most compelling way: when you've hit rock bottom, doesn't any change have to be for the better?
