Do you really need to know?

EDITOR:

Obama keeps telling Mitt to tell the particulars, what for? He passed a 2,500 page healthcare bill and told us that we would have to wait until it passed before we would know what was in it. This guy went behind the backs of 65 percent of us and passed something that we didn’t even want; he wants Mitt to lay out all the particulars? Being president is nothing more than being a leader and being able to put things together that will change thing for the better. General plans can be conceived without having to lay them all out prior implementing them, I owned a small successful business and for sure all of the methods that I used to make it successful wasn’t written down and followed. it was my ability to put it together as problems confronted me, the president will have to have that ability to do the same and Obama doesn’t have it! but Mitt Romney does, he has proved it through past experiences. If you want the U.S. to succeed you need someone with experience in job creation and has the ability to put two and two together, not a community organizer or a good speaker; use your heads, if Obama was a Republican you Dems would be pulling your hair out trying to find someone with the experience that Mitt Romney has.

    Mr. Schumann, perhaps you should have been the Tea/Republican nominee. But, even if you were, we would still want to know, preelection, the particulars of your plans to recover the economy. We need more than "I will create 12 million jobs."

    Mitt Romney is for every man (not woman) -- but the problem is that not all these men see the Same Person..... He's a liberal-Republican-teaparty-conservative-severly conservative.... I bet you he would even have some "Green-party". The problem is that you don't know who you're voting for.... (I don't think he really is part of the 47%) but then he is on record saying he is (sigh).... He's a well-greased Weather Vane.

    Mitt Romney, the job creator. Someone yesterday mentioned to me that he kind of liked Mitt because of his business experience. I asked if he was putting me on because Mitt was not a job creator, but rather a corporate raider -- either buying into a company to send jobs to China or attaching himself to a company like a parasite, sucking the company dry, and then quickly jumping off and running out the back door. A job creator indeed.

    Once our natural resources are opened to development jobs will follow, housing will double and manufacturing will leap into gear. Obama has proven that he can’t create jobs even by dumping billions of dollars into the economy; it is time for a change. Our congress is in shambles and it isn’t going to get any better with this administration it will stay without a budget and our debt will continue to climb. Obama has failed on most of his proposed plans even though he owned both the senate and house for two years. That is his fault not Bushes.

    Wow, Schumann, one man...alone COULD DO ALL THAT! and the Bush and Rumsfeld team couldn't find the WMD even though Cheney said on Meet the Press "We know where they are!"...... Obama was responsible for the 3 Million jobs lost before he took office, he setup all the bad mortgages and bad loans through Freddie and Fanny ALL BY HIMSELF..... and he failed to over-ride the Congress (What a lousy dictator).... You're right Martin.... Great leaders like Fidel Castro or Chavez..... They are good at creating jobs, walking over the existing law... They get things done...

    Obama won't have to blame anyone in a couple of weeks; Oboma-nation will be no more. I will be able to take off my tinfoil hat and hang it up.

    Mitt Romney is doing exactly what his campaign spokesperson said he would do...Erase his previous positions and Etch-A-Sketch a new, more moderate persona. Who knows what he is going to do? No specifics, no character.
