All along, Mitt Romney’s fellow Republican candidates have been taking pot-shots about his ability to serve as our next president. It seems as if they are intent on providing President Barack Obama with all the ammunition he needs to defeat Romney in November.

The latest attack accuses Romney of being a “capitalistic predator” because he sought out companies that were in debt and in trouble.

His approach was to get rid of the non-productive parts of the business, cut back on excess workers, improve the management and turn the failing company around, into a successful endeavor once again.

All this may sound pretty rough, but isn’t it exactly what we want our next leader to do in Washington?
