Who is really creating all the jobs?

I heard Mitt Romney this morning on CNBC and he had some interesting and surprising things to say. Beside all the stuff we have been hearing for the last few years he talked more about Bain Capital where he was one of the guys at the top.

I guess some of the other prospective Republican contenders have been taking pot shots at Romney because of his past association with an actual company that made money for its investors. I guess Mr. Romney should get ready for more of this if he is the eventual guy up against Mr. Obama in November.

But the interesting thing Romney said was that when he worked for Bain Capital (A combined Venture Capital Firm and private equity company) he created more jobs than Mr. Obama has so far. I hope he has the numbers to back this one up. If not, expect some need for damage control.

Keep an eye on how Mr. Romney deals with these attacks on his private sector history. It will be very telling on how the next ten months could go for him.

Unfortunately all this proves is that once again it is very hard to get qualified people to run for President of the United States. What can they do to fix that? Offer a bigger pay package and stock options?
