America needs an experienced business man

I am a product of the last depression and know how very, very tough it was. I don’t want to see this country go there again, but I am sure we are well on our way if we don’t get some experienced leadership very soon!

I am a business man and know what it takes to be successful in business. It takes good management, hard work, plus smart leadership, from those who have had years of experience.

Our president is a nice guy, but a complete waste of time as far as business experience is concerned. I would never have hired him to manage any of my businesses, as he has had no experience. Is this so hard to understand?

We must remember our country is the biggest business in the world. Would you fly with an airline pilot with little or no experience? That is why we are crashing; it’s as simple as that. Do we want to crash into a depression or do we want an experienced pilot to save us? I don’t care if you are a Democrat or Republican, our problem is jobs, without them, we are just heading for a crash!

So after nearly four years of this administration, where there has been little or no progress, as unemployment is still at 8-plus percent and we are borrowing 40 cents of every dollar we spend. We are already in a downhill spiral. The very simple question is, do you want to stick with nothing, or do you want a chance with a very experienced pilot and co-pilot, Romney plus Ryan?

Just common sense should give you the answer.
