One of the more amusing ironies of this Presidential campaign is the Democratic effort to portray Mitt Romney and his agenda as "extreme" and "radical." The former businessman and church-going father of five may be the least radical man alive. The real question is whether this candidate who is at heart a technocrat has the political and persuasive skills to win the Presidency and rally the country at a time of economic anxiety and national self-doubt.
Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney promises to create 12 million new jobs, make America energy independent by 2020, giving school choice to parents, and fewer business regulations if he's elected.
If a resumé decided the question, the former Massachusetts Governor would win in a walk. As convention viewers have heard this week, his range of experience, and success in multiple endeavors, far exceeds anything Barack Obama could boast in 2008 or today. It's clear he can make decisions and delegate authority, and his choice of Paul Ryan as a running mate suggests good judgment and an eye for talent.
