Obama did have an impressive college career apparently.

They say he is very smart.

Book smart and common sense do not always go hand in hand.
He wants to improve the economy? Was he an economy major?
He thinks he knows how to make a business thrive? Has he ever ran a successful business?
he has surrounded himself with some questionable characters. They treat our economy like a lab experiment.
He hasn't done everything wrong, but he has made some huge mistakes. Solyndra being one of them.
The Chevy Volt is another.
personally I feel we wasted a lot of money in Libya.
Obama makes a habit of mispeaking requiring a team of people to constantly explain what he really meant. As a lawyer he should be trained to do better than that. Then there is Biden.

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.
CEOs are executives, who are held responsible for their decisions, and they learn from their decisions. From their mistakes and successes, they learn to take advise, they learn who to trust, when to trust, and they learn how to trust their own judgement, and lastly, they learn if they are even cut out to be a leader. 0bama has never had any of that type of training from the school of hard knocks.

0bama has had four years, and he hasn't learned anything, because he has no peers, he does not have to show success, because he can blame kiosks, ATMs, tsunamis, the Arab Spring, Republicans, yadda, yadda, yadda. If he were a CEO or a football coach, and three years straight everything has either remained the same or gotten worse, he'd be fired, and out on his ear.

A CEO or a NFL coach has to face the owners, or a board of directors, 0bama doesn't have to face any of that. As president, 0bama just has to razzle-dazzle the stadium crowd with free beer, or impress the customers with free samples and promotional give-aways. Being the president is much easier then being a CEO or a NFL coach, because as a CEO or coach, the people who can fire you want to see results, and will not be bought off with fancy speeches and free beer.

Romney was a CEO, it's a brutal and competitive world, because everyone wants your job. If Romney even semi-regularly made bad decisions and was a poor leader, he would have been kicked to the curb by the board of directors.

That would be off topic!!

Community organizer whatever that is......... This qualified him to be President.

Annual budget: screwing the American people over later when elected for President.

I don't.......... it's who was elected. I'll vote for him to stop the Obama train crash if it doesn't work Romney will go in 4 years. By then hopefully someone worth holding the Presidency will be in there.

Your childlike view of the day-to-day activities of your average CEO is adorable.

In the real world, however, CEOs put in 14 hour days and lose sleep as they try to figure out how to make payroll.

CEOs have to carry the world on their shoulders while lower level workers have no such responsibilities.

Why do liberals with zero business experience think that the CEOs of America's 200,000 private companies with revenue over $500,000 per year are all billionaires?

By the way, if you actually read about the founding of Oracle you will see how Larry Ellison worked harder than you ever will while earning less than minimum wage as he tried to build his company from scratch.

THAT is entrepreneurship.

THAT is wealth creation (as opposed to Obama's belief that welfare builds America).

THAT is America!

He is still president and he is running again here in 2012. The time to move on is when he loses in November.
