Jack Welch, a man who started at General Electric as a young engineer on very modest pay and worked his way up to becoming GE’s youngest CEO and among its most transformational and innovative leaders had some strong praise for Mitt Romney’s credentials to be President in the video below. Welch said “Mitt Romney is the most qualified leader I’ve ever seen run for the Presidency of the United States”:
Here is the bulk of his comments:
“In my lifetime, Mitt Romney is the most qualified leader I’ve ever seen run for the Presidency of the United States…Let’s take him for a minute… Harvard Law School, Harvard MBA. Starts up Bain Capital, builds it… Bain gets in trouble sometime in 1990s, Mitt comes back to fix it… Bain Capital then has its best years ever. In ’99, leaves, goes to the Olympics, I was involved in that… we were in deep trouble. They were losing money, they had a scandal… and then 9/11 comes and everyone wants to cancel it, we’ve got a big commitment. He goes out there, fixes it totally. Again, fixes that up, comes back, runs for governor, wins the governorship. The government [is in debt]. He gets it out and gets a surplus. Who!? We haven’t had anybody do all these things! Do you think Richard Nixon did that? Do you think Bill Clinton had those credentials!? Certainly Barack Obama didn’t have those credentials!.. I mean, come on! We’ve got a guy here who’s a leader, that’s demonstrated beyond anyone we’ve ever had! Great family. This is the…! We’re the luckiest people in the world to have this guy there at this point in time.”
Well said, Mr Welch. At this point in time this is exactly the kind of leadership that America needs. America is in trouble, Americans are losing money, Washington is plagued by scandals, America’s debt soars. Mitt Romney has proven time and time again that he is a dynamic leader that will fix those very problems if hired to the task. He has a vision and a plan for America that will fix the problems we face, but unlike all other candidates and our current President, he has the credentials, know-how, and successful experiences necessary to follow through with the task of leading America to a more prosperous future. Indeed, as Welch related, we are lucky to have someone like this running for President.
But now is the time to follow up our luck with action. We are lucky to have him running for President, but it requires both our vote and our invitation to others to vote to actually see America put Gov. Romney’s skills to task in restoring American greatness. So share this video and tell people you know about how uniquely qualified Mitt Romney is to lead us to a better future.
