Except that "maximizing profits" in this context means decreasing government costs relative to government revenues, so the winners of his actions would be all of us. He has experience finding ways to take companies that are struggling and near (or in) bankruptcy and turning them around.
Except running a business is nothing like running a country, since you're pretty much required in a business to cut low performing sectors and personnel along with cutting costs to maximize revenue.
That's half of the equation, sure. I'm sorry. Is "cutting federal spending" something that people aren't clamoring for right now? Cause I thought it was. So someone who knows where and what and how much to cut would seem to be the kind of guy we need, while the guy who has never had to cut spending for anything in his life would be clueless. You get that Obama has never in his life been the guy on the other side of the counter having to make sure that spending stays under revenue, right? He's always been the guy trying to convince the other guy to give him a better deal.
That's why Romney is vastly better at dealing with our current economic woes.
Which is hilarious every time people mention the country should be run as a business, since it becomes painfully obvious those same people slept through their high school economics classes.
Or perhaps, they know exactly what they're talking about and realize that what we need right now is someone who can find ways to cut spending. The folks who slept through economics class are the ones who think that some magic process will occur that will allow us to continue to spend more money than we have and not suffer any ill effects.
Though, I'm all for firing a few states. We could probably hire a few Mexican territories to replace them, since they work more for less pay.
Yup. Definitely slept through economics class. Firing states? Are you kidding? WTF does that even mean? Federal budgets don't work that way btw.
So why did you say it?
Why would I need to explain something from step one to you if you're "ten steps ahead" already? Or are you admitting you ran in the wrong direction? I, in my benevolence, might be convinced to use tiny words and explain it if you admit you have no idea what you're talking about.
Oh. I know exactly what I'm talking about, and I've been quite clear about it. What's not so clear is what you're talking about though. I can't read your mind. I can only respond to what you post. And based on your posts, I've speculated about what your argument is. Now, if I'm wrong, by all means correct me. But you haven't even said that I'm wrong. Just kinda danced around the issue.
We're not really going to play the "guess what I meant" game again? Cause it was so productive the last 8 times.
You still haven't quite got it, but you're really close.
Yeah. Sure. If you want to clarify what you meant by the comment about meeting someone while attending a $20k/year grade school, then do so. If not, don't ***** that I'm wrong about what you meant. Pick one.
