Barack Obama V. Mitt Romney: Comparing resumes.

It’s only fair. President Obama wants us to focus on Mitt Romney’s history at Bain Capital, and the media is on that like white on rice – an expression which made more sense before my wife told me that brown rice is better for you, no political metaphor intended.

While the media and Newark’s Cory Booker are busy wondering whether it’s fair to criticize capitalism, I’d like to take a different tack. I’d like to compare candidate Romney’s resume to President Obama’s prior to his running for President. (We all know what he’s done since then.) If he’s asking us to consider Mitt Romney’s preparedness to be President, we have every right to ask the same question about President Obama.

Mitt Romney’s resume is simple and pretty much speaks for itself: Bain Capital. 2002 winter Olympics. Governor of Massachusetts. Management, management and more management. Private sector and government.

President Obama’s resume is equally telling: Community organizer. Civil rights attorney, teaching constitutional law. Three 2 year terms in the Illinois Senate. Four lackluster years in the U.S. Senate, during much of which he was running for President. President of the United States. Zero business or management experience, except what he’s learned on the job since being elected to his current position.

Okay, let’s forget about precisely how many net jobs Mitt Romney created while he was at Bain Capital. While there may have been a bad deal or two on which the Obama campaign is focusing, no one really disputes that Bain’s overall record for jobs creation, under Mitt Romney, was exemplary. President Obama, on the other hand, was wholly unprepared to be President during difficult economic times, and still is. “Wholly unprepared.”

Look at President Obama’s resume. Is it any wonder that he’s the “Poor Johnny One Note” of Presidents, if you remember your elementary school choir songbook. All he knows is government. His only solution to any problem – economic, fiscal or social – is “government.”

As you may have surmised, I didn’t vote for President Obama the first time, although the Republicans didn’t exactly make it easy for me. And I’m certainly not going to vote for him this time now that we have a real alternative in Mitt Romney whose experience is not only superior, but more relevant.

Barack Obama, like so many incumbents we need to replace, is a good man, just not the right or best man for the job or our times.

    Obama can't even wipe Romneys shoes on resumes. Romney has helped so many people without him bragging or taking credit. Yes he did it himself quietly. Obama blames so many others it makes volumes of his resume. His starts with HOPE and CHANGE and we got no HOPE and a lot of CHANGE that we did not want.

    No comparison. Experience should be the deciding factor and Obama doesn't have any.

    We don't need someone who only cares about half the country. That is NOT helpful... that is divisive.

    Too bad people want the divide to widen. :-(

    The only thing on Obama's resume is Failure! The rest is sealed so the American people cannot see what he really is.
