    Poll: Romney preferred over Obama to handle the economy

    WASHINGTON – Despite concerted Democratic attacks on his business record, Republican challenger Mitt Romney scores a significant advantage over President Obama when it comes to managing the economy, reducing the federal budget deficit and creating jobs, a national USA TODAY/Gallup Poll finds.

    Mitt Romney is preferred over President Obama on the economy, despite attacks on his record at Bain Capital, according to a new USA TODAY/Gallup Poll.

    By more than 2-1, 63%-29%, those surveyed say Romney's background in business, including his tenure at the private equity firm Bain Capital, would cause him to make good decisions, not bad ones, in dealing with the nation's economic problems over the next four years.

    What really surprised me is the margin.

    Add a Marco Rubio as VP and you've got enthusiasm. If he picks someone else, the enthusiasm will deflate.

    Romney would better handle the economy - by starting another war. Maybe WW3. The though of nuking the "Stans" should please many of you.

    And no doubt it would please you too - seeing as they are a part of the human population that you like to call "trash".

    I don't buy that line of thinking at all.

    Too many hispanic voters have already had their votes bought by democrats through various federal give away programs, just like blacks.
