Republican Strategist: "Romney ran a business and a large state, but Obama's only run one measly country"

Today, MSNBC host Chris Jansing had Republican strategist, Brad Todd to discuss Romney's recent six swing state road trip. When describing Mitt Romney's accomplishments, he said something I thought was kinda funny  (Starts at 2:56) :


Mitt Romney is a successful CEO, who has run a large state, he's turned around the Olympics, he's turned around businesses in his corporation, and Barack Obama has only run the United States of America. That's it.

Well, that settles that, I suppose.

I don't know if Mr. Todd misspoke or if he thought what he said about Romney sounded more impressive than it actually was. Maybe he was thinking that quantity was more important than quality. Hence Romney ran two different things, a business and a state. Whereas Obama ran only one measly country. Granted that's still a phenomenally stupid argument, since last I checked, the United States, consists of quite a few different states.

And not to beat up on poor Mr. Todd too much, but that whole turning around the Olympics thing doesn't sound nearly as impressive when you come to find out that Romney did that by engaging in soshulism by begging money from the feds.
