Success is the new failure. That is the message behind The President and his cronies' attacks on Republican Presidential Nominee, Mitt Romney's time at Bain Capital. Those aforementioned surrogates have stated that Romney's history at Bain makes him a corporate raiding, outsourcing, tycoon unfit to serve as our president. The one thing they do not mention about Romney's tenure at Bain was that it was a success.
When examining a presidential candidate isn't success a good thing? Think about it this way: when you are invited to a job interview don't you talk about your successes with the interviewer? When Romney started working at Bain & Company he was a Marketing Consultant. Within a few years he was so successful at his job that Bill Bain offered him the chance to run his own subsidiary company, Bain Capital.
While Romney was the CEO of Bain Capital the company rescued many companies from the brink of failure. These companies included Domino's Pizza, Staples, and The Sealy Corporation just to name a few. Bain's involvement led to record profits for these companies. This is the kind of leadership we need in the individual running our country.
When this is measured against President Obama's history, there is no comparison. Before ascending to the presidency, Barrack Obama never ran anything. After almost four years under his control our national debt sits at about $16 trillion and unemployment cannot seem to fall below eight percent. Underemployment is also at a three-decade high at fourteen percent and the economy shows many signs of falling into a double dip recession. With results like this, why would we not want a person who was successful in business to be president?
Romney's past at Bain also demonstrates that he is capable of making tough decisions. Along with a dismal economy our country is facing crucial choices on entitlements and spending, and something needs to be done to keep us from following in the footsteps of nations like Spain and Greece. We simply cannot afford to continue the reckless spending. Obama's response is the complete antithesis. Albert Einstein once said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over again and expecting different results. That is essentially what we as a country will be doing if we do not go with the experienced choice of Mitt Romney this time around.
So please let's stop trying to demonize success.
