Romney on his experience
Mitt Romney, the candidate "ready to lead his party and nation," states that he knows what it is like to build a buisness from scratch, and how the government kills many jobs. He says that his leadership has lead him to the oppurtunities to save the Olympics from scandal. Romney says that with his supervision, he can "end the Obama Error, and start another error of American prosperity." Mr. Romney thinks he is qualified for the job, and he wants to make America like it was before. He says people have come here looking for America's great things it has to offer and they haven't found them yet. He believes he could change things if he were president. - Tess
Criticisms of his political experience
During an interview with Sen. John McCain, who is supporting Mitt Romney even though they competed against one another in the Presidential primaries in 2008, and Former Sen. Fred Thompson, who is endorsing Newt Gingrich, said that Mitt Romney's campaign was a "Drudge in their back pocket", to Meet the Press. Gov. Christi of NJ said that Gingrich is an embarrassment to the Republican party, and that they didn't need another legislator in the oval office. One reason why Mitt has the elective ability is his experience as governor, as a business person saved the Olympics at Salt Lake City.
