I would much rather elect a President who's been successful in his/her life than someone who hasn't. Gov. Romney's role in business was twofold: 1) to make money for investors, &; 2 to save fledgling companies from going out of business. Of course, if the companies failed, investors didn’t profit as much, so Romney & Co. were motivated to save them. This sometimes meant having to let employees go,, but at other times companies prospered, allowing them to add many new jobs. An example of the same process used by the government was Obama's bailout of auto companies, during which he closed 100's of dealerships throughout the country. The NADA projected the closings cost 110,000 jobs. So how is this different from what Romney did?
