A Conversation with Bernie Marcus

One of the reasons why I am planning to vote for Mitt Romney for President in this November's election is touched on by Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus in the below video. President Barack Obama would have Americans believe that the federal government is the key to solving chronically high unemployment, helping a record number of Americans get off welfare(at last count that number was about 46.5 million) and creating more jobs for those unemployed and/or under employed Americans. The federal government of the U.S. has been traditionally fraught with waste and internal mismanagement of its own finances. Federal agencies like FEMA and the U.S. Postal Service have been financial disasters for many years. At the time of this blog post the USPS is losing $25 million A DAY! I would like to see a future America with MORE employed Americans and with long term jobs, not 90 day "shovel ready" temp jobs that President Obama's stimulus legislation generated.
