  •  How do qualifications and experience (3+ / 0-)

    apply to Romney within the context of the types of duties and responsibilities the OP is describing?  How do they help him?

    A scion whose job in college was living off his investments given him by his family, whose business acumen can best be described as predator capitalist who bought companies, took the cash out and sold them prior to bankruptcy?  What does that qualify him for except shock doctrine privatization and austerity?

    He comes up with a health care plan that he now disowns because it doesn't cater to the right wing of his own party?

    Yeah, he's loaded for bear.

    As for the beer standard, I hope the citizens of Massachusetts have better sense than you suggest.  Having a beer and shooting the shit is no qualification, nor is it a guarantee that you should trust someone to vote as you'd like.
