Fred Barnes article in the Weekly Standard is another take on the familiar question of how Romney's business experience relates to what type of President he will be. I enjoyed this segment where Barnes is giving examples of how Romney's business experience may shape his foreign policy:

"[One] example occurred on Romney's trip to Israel last January. He arranged to visit the fence along the West Bank and was surprised by the reluctance of Israeli military officers to defend the building of the barrier. Romney asked the number of terrorist attacks before and after the fence was erected. Romney, an aide says, is 'a before and after guy' in making judgments. When told attacks had dropped to zero, Romney said the Israelis shouldn't be apologetic about the fence. If the United States had faced the same terrorist threat, 'we'd have built it 10 feet higher and called it a wall.'"

Ultimately, the article does a good job of contrasting Romney with Bush and essentially highlights a central premise for his candidacy: "Unlike everyone else running for president..., Romney has a new method for solving problems and taking on difficult issues." His extensive experience in business is the basis for his decisions, not his Washington connections. "Romney is not primarily a politician." "His presidential style, as a result, would be far different from President Bush's--or any other president's. Romney would be coolly analytical and less political."

All-in-all a good read. Check it out.

Finally, a candidate that I can actively support! It's expensive; but it's worth every dollar if we can get someone in Washington with the integrity, business acumen, and proven leadership our nation needs at its helm. To encourage others (and myself) to give, I’ll match dollar for dollar any contribution made to Romney through the end of the year at his website (up to the legal limit, which I’m nowhere close to). Every dollar counts (double)!

Nice offer william, what a show of true support. I will do my small part. Where is the donation tab!?
