"That's how I feel about a candidate whose primary experience was that of being a "community organizer."We differ there, but thanks for helping restate my point. This idea (that someone able to get rich will be able to run the country) really makes no sense to me. It is like asking a celebrity for a medical opinion because they played a doctor in a movie. "Gee, he got very rich, so he must be able to run the country". Huh? Someone who was interested more in making things better for other people (like a community organizer) would, in my view, make a much better political leader than someone more interested in filling his own pockets. Just my way of thinking, but I see nothing in that skill set that would make him a good President. Add to that his willingness to change his positions on a whim to suit his supporters - well, it tells me his convictions are, at best, malleable. Not a good trait for a world leader. Sorry, but Mitt isn't the guy.-----------------------------ANYONE who uses the "community organizer" term clearly means to be derogatory. That is a shame but why not mention that Barack Obama was a civil rights attorney and law professor, then a state senator for 8 years before becoming a Senator for Illinois in Washington? Sure he wasn't in the Senate in Washington for very long, but Mitt Romney brings up his experience running the Olympics almost every campaign stop. Why? How much time did that take? Why doesn't he talk about his time as a governor? Why doesn't he actually say what he DID running Bain Capital -- not just a blanket statement that he created jobs. Everyone knows he also destroyed jobs. He doesn't talk about the details because his experience is not even as good as Barack Obama, who actually worked for years helping people and holding a government office for much longer than Mitt Romney. He was governor for 4 years. He is only twice as qualified as Sarah Palin. Think about that one for a moment. <shudder>
