“[I]f there were a magic key to unlock spectacular growth and widely shared prosperity, you’d think we would have found it by now. There hasn’t been a president in decades, the current one included, who didn’t have lots of businesspeople working in his administration. And Barack Obama talks to corporate leaders all the time. If Romney knows something they don’t, he hasn’t told us what it is. If you read through his economic plan, you’ll find that it contains the same things Republicans always advocate: lower taxes, reduced regulations, free trade, and so on. You’ve certainly heard Romney say that his business experience helps him understand the economy. But have you ever heard him say what exactly he learned that no one else knows?” Paul Waldman on Romney’s economic policy
Nice debunking of the “run government like a business” myth. And Romney is currently unable to talk about his business experience because it involves things like outsourcing, takeovers, shady possibilities of perjury and, yes, aborted fetus disposal.
