Mitt the CEO vs Hillary the Leader

I’ve been waiting for this letter for quite some time.  And here it was: a letter from the Romney campaign asking for money.  I used to donate money to the Republicans; I thus have never had a doubt that they would ask me again.  So the only amusing thing about the letter was its signature:

Romney for President, Inc.

Mitt Romney is not a politician.  Even after having served for four years as the Massachusetts governor, he’s still a businessman, a CEO.  When the media accuses him in "flip-flopping" on such issues as same-sex marriage and abortion, I laugh.  Of course, he is flip-flopping because as a true CEO he says and does exactly what is needed — here and now! — to get the job done. 

I haven’t yet decided whether to vote for Romney if he gets nominated.  But it’ll be easy to decide: I’ll just listen to how Romney the CEO (the President) intends to solve the problems his corporation (the U.S.A.) is facing.  If Romney runs the U.S.A., Inc. as he runs his campaign, the results will be terrific.

Things are different with Hillary Clinton.  I can’t care less about whether she’ll apologize for her 2002 vote authorizing the war in Iraq.  The real problem with Hillary Clinton is not whether she was duped by the malicious president.  The real problem with her is that she voted for the war when the country was for it, and she stands against the war when the country is against.  At the same time, she’s running for president as

Our Leader

Mitt wants to run this country as CEO, which he is.  Hillary wants to be our leader, which she isn’t.  It’s that simple.

(I was about to write a check to the Romney for President, Inc.  when my daughter suggested that I gave the money instead to an animal shelter she’s volunteering for.   For a second, I reflected about multimillionaire Romney and homeless kittens and decided that the girl had a point.)
