The President is no leader; he's a perpetual campaigner! Herman Cain said it best: “He couldn't run one Godfather’s Pizza restaurant. He’s not decisive, he dithers. He has a structure that doesn’t work. He’s inconsistent, and he’s broken a lot of promises." Besides, for Obama, only the rich would pay, and they'd soon find another place to eat! He has the least administrative experience of any President ever elected. From running our national Olympic team to turning around struggling companies, I've made the tough decisions and inspired achievement. In the White House, I'll walk the talk and lead.

How can the average American relate to someone as rich as you?

True Americans respect citizens who've earned their success, because they want to do the same. This is the country of the American Dream. The ones who don't believe that won't even try. The achievers and new immigrants take advantage of our freedoms and opportunity. Instead of punishing achievement, I'll positively gossip about the Americans who are making America work and what we can learn from them. I'll measure my success not by how many are receiving aid, but by how many no longer need government support.

The President wants more stimulus funds to get more Americans working. What do you...?

Stop! We need fewer, not more government workers! Where does the money come from to hire government workers and invest in failing companies like Solyndra? It comes from your pocket in the form of higher taxes. I want you to keep more of your money so that the companies who provide the services and products you want will prosper. President Obama believes government knows best; I believe American citizens do. It's time to get government out of your wallet and out of micromanaging our economy.

But what about President Obama's many accomplishments?

Accomplishments? Hearing him talk, you'd think America is working again. Are you better off? My job is to bring a spotlight to his administration's dismal record. He talks transparency, but we'll deliver it whether he likes it or not. I want your vote. I'll earn your respect as President when I get America believing in itself again. Join me in inventing a future we can again be proud of.
