    Mitt Romney has a long and successful career as a hedgefund manager, however his political skills are underdeveloped in my opinion. His only political office was governor of Massachusetts, whose legislature was by his own acknowledgment 87% Democratic, and I cannot see biparisinship. By composition the 13% had such an inferior bargaining position that to me that I have to question Mitt's claim to success as governor.
    I considering the presidency: He has no foreign policy experience, no experience with the civil war that is our congress, extreme right wing republicans al qaeda or should I say tea party republicans,liberal democrats. Would he become a puppet for those in his party who want to destroy the government,and reap a profit in doing so. The presidency will present a challenge that I think that Mitt is not prepared to handle. How good is his judgment to publicly dismiss the significance of 47% of the Amercica citizenship, how many more does he secretly not care for.
    In researching his past he has done little for America as a nation other than his Olympic service(fund raising). I think that he should have to convince people that he has the ability to lead a whole nation 53% won't do it.
