Was it the sort of organization that could provide the deep experience needed to run the World's largest, most advanced military or the World's largest economy?
HIS 2008 campaign, wasn't that a billion dollar annual budget?

This question was asked and asked in 2008 and nobody could or would answer it. Maybe if the media had asked the question somebody would have told them but nobody was about to tell us of the right lean. I think that they had a reason to ignore it.

Candidates don't run their own campaigns. They have campaign managers who are in charge of that.

And now they are too busy trying to find out if an ex-girlfriend of Paul Ryan's matters even though he has been happily married with children for years.

Obama now has four years of experience being president. Mitt Romney has none. And don't forget about the experience in foreign relations that Obama has. Again, Romney has none.
OMG are you really trying very hard here with little success, too. We now have a president who thinks he is the king of this nation. He gives orders and his subordinates listen. He has nearly made the Congress completely unnecessary and has gone a long way toward destroying the Supreme Court. I don't remember him doing anything like give and take and yet you say he can.

He also has given himself the right to kill American citizens without the pesky interference of the courts or the Constitution.

Romney has proven his executive ability as Gov of MA showing he can reach across the aisle and manage compromise. Obama is a hater

Oh, you mean like corporate CEO's that have others manage the business while they're on the golf course or Jetting off to the Cayman to visit their money?

Oh, so that's what you think CEOs do, huh?

Congratulations on your tenured position at Ivory Tower University!

The CEO of a campaign is the campaign manager NOT the candidate.

Just like the CEO of the Los Angeles Lakers is not Kobe Bryant...its Mitch Kupchak.
