We wouldn't be in this mess if Mitt were president

I feel as if I am in Alice in Wonderland every morning when I look at the news. If Mitt Romney had been elected president and we were in this situation, he would have gathered the House and Senate leaders and a few smart staffers at the White House, provided a blackboard and started throwing around ideas, options and alternatives.

And he wouldn't have let anyone leave until a game plan was agreed on. All it takes is a real leader and hard work — two things that are in short supply in the current administration.
