You shouldn't buy into the Romney myth. He was not a particularly good businessman. He borrowed money from his dad to start it, and then had to get a government bail-out when it failed. Interesting that he was so vehement about opposing the automaker's bailout, but was quite eager for one of his own.

Yeah, the choice is very clear. Incompetent, rich, out-of-touch guy who will screw everyone in favor of his rich compatriots, or the guy who kept us out of a depression, got us out of a war, and really did work his way up from humble beginnings. Both are seriously flawed people, IMO, but given a choice between the two it's no contest...rich guy needs to go away.
