More to the point is how well his promises will stand up. Just about anyone can give a pretty speech, and get all teary-eyed when talking about their mother, but how well this translates to running the county is yet to be seen.

He will be better than what we had the past four years. I like the president as a person, but for someone who never even had a lemonaid stand how can we expect him to run a country for Gods sake? We need someone with experience to turn the USA around. Someone who will stand up to other world leaders when needed, not be licking their boots like the one we have now. Get rid of NAFTA and bring back jobs to the USA. And stop our dependancy on other countries for oil. And sell our corn,wheat and other grains for $5.00 a bushen and see how fast oil comes down. I think Mitt will be better than what we got now. I'm tired of the blame it on the other guy, Mr. Obama has had almost four years to do something and every thing he done failed. If he stayed at home instead of jet setting all over the world possibly thing may be better today. WE HAVE TO LET HIM GO,NOW!

Our country was in trouble when we elected a person who never held a job to create jobs during a financial crisis. We now have two people that have created tens of thousands of jobs in the private sector and who are head of the Congressional finance committee. There is hope for America.

We can't do any worse than the empty suit in office now. He has already shown us his promises and "vision" for us and that vision suffers from Glaucoma.
A change is in order, my financial situation can't handle another 4 years of this clown.

If corporations are people then Mitt Romney is a serial killer.
Think about it.

We don't need a Romney in the White House.He will allow companies to go belly up and ship the jobs overseas like he has done working for Bain Capital.
For a guy who hides his tax returns and wealth, he is the last person this country needs in the White House. He is out of touch with the average Joe in this Country.
