When Mitt Romney says that he can fix the economy because he's a businessman...

That's like some guy who says that he can raise cattle because he knows all about bullshit.

His wonderful skill at making lots of money and hiding it in off-shore tax shelters doesn't equate with running America's economy at all. I'm wondering when someone will tell him that to his face.

5. Obama mocked his claim that he's a great...

...business man and credited him for making good investments. That was way subtle and sweet.

10. He believes he should be President for your own good and will tell you what it takes for your vote.

 

He thinks you don't know what's best for you, so he has no problem lying to you to get you to put him in power. He has no respect or genuine concern for you except in a general "all mankind" sense; he has pity and resentment that he needs you for a vote. In his mind, you probably aren't even going to heaven.
