MARRIOTT - said - Welcome back to the family

Ex-presidential contender Romney will lead Marriotts board's finance committee. He is not new to the board because he spent nearly ten years on the Board of Directors in the 1990s. Mitt Romney's first name is Willard, in honor of the Marriott founder. It is good to know that his financial proficiency and integrity will be back at the chain that I have invested 25 years with....
I realize that my contention with Marriott will not be an area that the board would deal with because it is an operational policy, but it is somewhat comforting.
Romney certainly understands Wall Street. He was CEO of Bain & Company, a management consulting firm, and was a co-founder of Bain Capital, a private equity investment firm that successfuly helped grow business.
I wish that Obama had given him a job because the stimulus bill has not much in it that will stimulate the economy. The many items buried deep within the 778 page almost $1 trillion debt package is not a solution. --- Gov. Perry hit the nail on the head when he quoted M. Friedman, by saying ,’ "If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in 5 years there'd be a shortage of sand." –

  1. President Lincoln was smart enough to give his enemies jobs because they were experts. I just thought that since Obama quoted Lincoln in his Inauguration speech so often, that he would take a leaf out of his book in this time of need.
