Peggy your fawning over Mitt constant dissing of Newt is wearing thin, very thin. I respect the role that venture capital firms play in our economy but to equate thier activities with being job creators is foolish and wrong. Mitt Romney may well be a great manager of money but that in and of itself does not make him a job creator. Those are the folks that own operate and build the companies that really create jobs and wealth. Most do it without Venture capitalist using their own resources and risking ALL to have an opportunity to move up the economic ladder. Bane capital and its like move when these companies need money to make their ideas into a reality.
Do we want someone whose idea of creating jobs is to do a better job of allocating money to enterprises who he thinks is worthy? Whose claim to be best suited to be president is to CREATE jobs himself when that is not true. We have the ultimate in venture capitolist in the White House now in Obama. He believes it is the role of government to pick the winners. That is what Mitt has done and I have not heard him detail how he will govern just that he know how to pick better than the guy now in th WH.
Newt,Santorum and Perry on the other hand have stated a plan and desperate need to restructure the government especially the regulators and the gigantic bureacratic structure that exists. Only Newt has put forth such a plan.
The fate of the nation is at stake and I am not comforted by Peggy Noonan’s missives that Mitt is the best we have he is not. She also only creates words nothing of substance.
