JENNIFER RUBIN ON THE MAN WHO WOULD BE MITT:
The key to understanding Romney is his resume. He had his great success as a turnaround specialist. As founder and CEO of Bain Capital he identified failing companies, saw potential if their direction could be changed, and revamped them for a new and successful future. . . .
He does get points for candor by admitting he is â€œunlikely to be the top pick for those voters looking for a â€˜war/strong leader.â€™â€ That may not go over well with supporters of the President. That is ok. Romney seems indifferent to their concerns and is willing to distinguish his brand from Bushâ€™s with one word, the document says, â€œintelligence.â€ Maybe this is his cross over appeal to Democrats who think the President is dim.
Not a very positive assessment, overall. You can hear our podcast interview with Romney here.
