Choosing The Right Manager For The Biggest Business On Earth

Choosing The Right Manager For The Biggest Business On Earth

On Tuesday we’re going to give a manager a new four-year contract to manage the U.S. Government. It’s a big job. The manager we choose will be running the biggest business on earth.

Mitt Romney thinks he’s qualified. In fact, he thinks he’s the only candidate who has actually managed a business and the only one with a track record of success.

As the Republicans are so fond of saying, Barack Obama “never even ran a lemonade stand.”

But what voters need to examine is an apples-to-apples comparison, showing how both candidates ran the same kind of business and how successful they were.

Luckily, we can. The business in question is a national pPresidential campaign. Romney and Obama both ran one in 2008, and each of them is running one now.

Let’s go back to 2008 and look at how Obama did running his first presidential campaign. Compared to his two main adversaries (and to Romney’s early failure), the results were spectacular.

Obama’s campaign was larger and more complex than most Fortune 100 companies by measures such as staff size and locations. His use of the Internet demonstrated an innovative approach to campaigning that paved the way for Romney’s current pop-ups.

The Obama campaign built up steam with a devoted base and never ran a deficit, while the Clinton and McCain campaigns ran into serious financial difficulty. This despite the fact that McCain was starting with a fortune behind him and the Clintons had done it before.

Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign was a business with a million and a half  “employees” (active volunteers) and a billion dollars in revenue. Even more impressive, the business grew to that size in about a year. More experienced competitors who began with 10 times as much startup capital didn’t do nearly as well.

This year, the Romney campaign spent more money than Obama through the August reporting period. Yet they managed to open only a fraction as many field offices, all while having fewer than half the number of “employees” (volunteers working for the campaign). Fewer offices plus fewer employees means lower expenses in most businesses, but not when Romney’s in charge.

Arguably, Romney took a different strategic approach in the business of managing his campaign. He focused more resources on advertising and on “outsourcing” his on-the-ground efforts.

Was the strategy successful? Not with Romney’s nearsighted vision for the future.

His ads that imply American workers at Ohio’s Jeep plants will lose their jobs to China have backfired so spectacularly that the CEOs of two car companies felt they had to publicly take the Romney campaign to the woodshed for lying.

Romney knows a lot about “outsourcing,” but outsourcing voter registration drives to an accused fraudster in multiple states was a serious failure in business judgment. That supplier had to be fired, and the Romney campaign had no second source for that essential function. In Romney’s business circles, that’s known as “single-point failure” and managers are supposed to have a risk-management plan in place to avoid it.

Why The Congressional Majority Likes Sequester

We hear that 800,000 civilian employees of the Department of Defense will get an automatic 20-percent cut in hours and pay. That’s a hell of a lot more than the percentage cut to the Department. Why? Because nobody is cutting the pay to contractors that are non-human “persons.” In fact, some defense contractors are going

Lobbyists: The Best Risk Arbitrage Your Money Can Buy

When I began investing decades ago, one of the earliest versions of hedge fund strategies was to simultaneously buy the stock of a “target” company in a takeover and sell the stock in the company that was doing the purchase. They call it “risk arbitrage,” where the risk is that the announced deal might not happen.

    with willards record for going bankrupt (thats what he has in common with trump), he is the last person we need leading America.

    besides, willard is hiding something in his tax returns.

  • bcarreiro

    The only job romney would create is the one that protect his portfolio and his inner circle. We dont need an (extreme)bush take-over, we have our president and he is doing a hell of a job. Thank You Obama for all that you have done and will do in the future. Someone has to make tough decisions and that is you who treats everyone equal. romney makes decisions based on what is good for him, not that country as a whole.

    • neece00

      bcarreiro, I agree totally. We have a president and he is doing a great job.

      • https://me.yahoo.com/a/CExyRu0DldIKVhPMRs3urVvYpw--#9c304 Paul Colby

        “A great job” Obama?, You have got to be kidding. Quit focusing on class warfare and focus on all the terrible things and record debt & spending of the last 4 years. The 44 months of terrible unemployment, the unconstitutional Amnesty for a few million illegals,(more coming later), the cover-up in Benghazi, fast & furious, the hidden taxes in Obamacare that will hurt us in a few years………………
        By the way, the last recession “ended” June 2009, and BO’s recovery has been worse that that recession, and another one very well coming. We have had a bad economy for 6 years now and Obama even had complete control of Congress.

        • William Deutschlander

          Paul unfortunately you are not very well informed, either you are not to smart or you just choose to listen to and accept the warped, deceitful talking points of the venomous liars, of the ultra conservative regime know as the Republican Cartel.
          The once respected Republican brand of Lincoln and Eisenhower ceased to exist with Ford, turning into a deceitfull enterprise, that in the 21st Century is a Cartel much like the drug cartels in neighboring Mexico, it’s only interest is caring for the caretel’s leadership financialy.
          A cartel does not embrace Democracy or respect we the people!

        • nobsartist

          You are an idiot. President Obama has actually cut the deficit by not spending as much as the AWOL coke head that lied us into 2 wars did. You like to ignore the fact that 12 TRILLION of the 16 TRILLION dollar debt was created by the AWOL coke head that YOU voted for twice.

          • idamag

            Nobs, and Romney is already making noises about attacking Iran. The Bush wars did not help the economy. It ruined it and made Haliburton and subsidiaries richer.

          • ALLLLAMERICAN

            Do YOU want them over here at YOUR front door????

            WHY DO WE GO TO WAR????

          • old_blu

            For Allll the WMD. hahaha.

          • grammyjill

            Guess I spoke too soon.

          • grammyjill

            We go to war because some republican asshole wants to prove he’s a big boy. And my son has twelve years left in the military and I want him safe. If Romney wants a war… he can go himself!

          • BDC_57

            you know that would never happen he would just go on a mission.

          • grammyjill

            Yep, that’s why he needs to stay out of the white house!

          • ALLLLAMERICAN

            What’s wrong with that???

            We have to show WE are the boss
            and WE are Large and in charge!!!!!!!!

            Not running around with our tails between our legs like you sissy boy Libs.

          • grammyjill

            I gather you have no children in the military. I do. And he has children. He’s a very good Daddy and his children deserve to keep him, and so do I. And there are ways to be in charge without bullets and bombs. Obama is trying to do it without them and it’s working. And we are NOT the boss. Each country has it’s own culture and we HAVE to respect that, just as they have to respect our culture.

          • Sand_Cat

            We just think any sacrifice is worth it to get “them” to show up at yours.

          • idamag

            You poor ill-informed backwoods bigot. Iraq was no threat to us at all. I suppose you and your kids will fight in a war with Iran. I wonder if Romney’s kids would. Bush’s daughters and Cheney’s nasty daughter did not fight in Iraq.

          • http://profile.yahoo.com/HFYZP2APYPP7H6PWS2ZDQRWFEQ Hillbilly

            To make warmongers richer especially Vice President Cheney and the security company he was part owner of Halliburton that was given a no bid contact for security work in Iraq and Afghanistan. Along with the people in the arms business.

          • idamag

            Hill, Cheney had controlling stock in Haliburton. It is surprising that more people were not alarmed about the no bid contracts that were given to Haliburton and their subsidiaries.

          • idamag

            AlllKKK, you are a paranoid.

          • idamag

            Newsflash: Israel was planning an attack on Iran this morning and called it off.

          • ALLLLAMERICAN

            YOU ARE WRONG with your FACTS

            The U.S. government has run a budget deficit of well over a trillion dollars every single year under barack HUSSEIN obama.

          • Sand_Cat

            You are an ignorant MORON.

            Does putting it all in caps make it more convincing? Get somebody to change your diaper and give you your medication.

          • BDC_57

            probly her kkk buddy will do it for her.

          • idamag

            Sand Cat, such an ignorance person is not worth talking to at all. Just ignore KKK

        • idamag

          Paul, as a r abid ideologue, you will focus only on things you think is wrong with the President and will feel guilty if you see anything good. If you inherit a house with a leaking roof and you have no money to fix it, you have to make a choice: Let the leaking roof destroy the house or borrow money to fix it. Obama inherited a leaking economy. It cost money but he plugged the leak and now it is time to pay down the debt.

          When he became president, we were losing 800,000 jobs a month. For 32 months there has been job growth. It is not enough. We need more, but we will see more.

          When there were more Democrats in the House and Senate, they used the filibuster to keep him from getting anything done.

          The recession ended for Wall Street and they have seen record profits for their companies. It did not end for the many who are still looking for work.

          You would be one of them fighting any tax increase that might help the economy. The deficit is caused by not taking in enough revenue for what needs to be spent. Of course you are clutching your wallet with both hands as you think we should be able to run this government with no taxes.

          You want to cut social programs instead.

          Class warfare was started when Citizens United and the Supreme Court enacted corporations are people. Suddenly big money had a bigger voice than those lowly working people.

            morning my friend. you said that right.Obama/Biden2012

  • http://pokerknave.com PokerKnave

    An excellent piece of writing! I cannot believe that Romney is so close to winning. Everything about the guy is so dodgy. Yet I have had arguments with his supporters over verifiable checkable facts such as if Romney is going to win then why do they not put all their money on him at 2/1?

    I was then attacked for his price, which I admit I had wrong because it went out to 3/1! Instead of going on message boards and saying blue is green and dogs are really cats, they should go and plunge on the betting markets with all their might.

    How often can you quadruple your money in 2 days?

    • nobsartist

      dont forget, the idiots elected the bush crime family 5 times in the last 30 years.

    • ALLLLAMERICAN

      I can NOT believe obama is as close as he is to winning after alllll the schemes he’s pulled and the EVIL LIES and having people killed and What he hasn’t done in the last 4-years.
      He hasn’t done NOTHING except give out Food Stamps and spend spend spend on WHAT?????

      • nobsartist

        for someone that spends so much time running your “big business” that pays for your BOMBARDIER jet, you sure spend a lot of time running your mouth.

        But thats why I call you allfullofcrap.

        • idamag

          Nobs, I find this alllfullofit too uninformed and tedius to even read his posts. He is probably a kid. If he is not a kid, he is a case of arrested development.

          • ALLLLAMERICAN

            OH, I’m soooo sorry you have no idea about these things
            and are so uneducated and uniformed!!!!

          • idamag

            Want to compare your college transcripts with mine?

          • ALLLLAMERICAN

            Doesn’t look like your college transcripts are doing much for YOU are they!!!!! haaaa haaaaaa haaaaaaa

        • ALLLLAMERICAN

          OH, do I hear a little JELOUSY?? haaa haaaaaaa haaaaaaaaaaa

          I didn’t say WE own a jet—we are in the BOMBARDIER jet club.

  • old_blu

    There is more to running a country than there is to running a business, you have to have compassion and you have to care about other people.

    Mitt Romney has no character or honor, and couldn’t tell the truth if his life depended on it, and that’s not the kind of business man I want.

    Everyone go vote it’s almost time, and good luck to us all.

    Obama/Biden 2012

    • neece00

      Good morning old friend, exactly….everyone go vote and good luck to us all.

      • BDC_57

        morning friend we have to let the teabagers we are going put up with ther bs any more. vote for Obama/Biden.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/ZJ5BBSQIGTUMERPZFALES6HQNY Bill

      You are totally right. A country can’t be run like a for profit company. If that were so we would have to look at all the different areas that receive gov’t money and see if they are profitable. If not they get their budgets cut. Also companies look to increase their revenue by raising prices/rates (for gov’t that would mean raising taxes)

    • BDC_57

      Good morning my friend. Romney will run the country for the Koch brothers.

      • grammyjill

        No, the Koch brothers will run Romney.

        • BDC_57

          yeah but it will trickle to the goverment.

          • grammyjill

            Yes, the Koch brothers want to run the country. Watched a show about them the other night. They turn my stomach! They donate money to colleges, then tell them what teachers they can hire, who to fire and what they are allowed to teach. Those three old men need to take a dirt nap!

          • idamag

            Grammy, they are the most disgusting and dangerous, to American Freedom, people around.

          • grammyjill

            Well, they just lost a ton of money and their puppet(Romney). Now to get rid of Grover Norquist, Karl Roves puppet. I’m writing letters and there is a petition on care2. Hopefully something will work. Wrote a letter to McConnell today. Told him he failed his interview.

        You make me laugh out loud, good to see you my friend, tomorrow is the big day I am so ready for it.

        • grammyjill

          Going to vote as soon as I get up. Had one of those poll takers call today. Asked who I was voting for, I told him Obama of course, I’d never vote for that asshole. I thought he was going to piss his pants he laughed so much. Our guy is up in all states except Colorado. Hope we get a landslide tomorrow.

          • idamag

            Today is Tuesday. I voted for Obama early this morning.

          • grammyjill

            Me too and I took my husband, son and son’s girlfriend. It was her first time voting. In 2008 she had dinner with Obama and had a long talk with him. Even though they did not pass the voting ID law here they were asking for picture ID at the polls. I got pissy with them and my 80 year old father really jumped their shit. He told the guy that he read the paper and that law did not pass so you must be one of those lieing republicans. He didn’t have to show any ID.

      • idamag

        Grammy, I heard Alll is s female and a KKK. Is that true?

          You are begging for this Country to be destroyed which will happen if you, mustgo, montana bill and 2 others get your way and Romney is elected President. All he knows to do with companies and what he will do to this Country is destroy and ship jobs to China so he can be partners with the Chinese government. If you and the rest work the first jobs that he will get sent to China will be yours because once he has your vote, he and Ryan no longer give a damn about you. For those two to care about anyone they have to have millions in bank accounts, trusts, and off shore accounts other wise you are nothing but a speck of dirt to be brushed off and forgotten about.

          • idamag

            Go back to the time when people were consumable commodities and it was okay to kill, maim, make them sick, and discard them if they got too old to work. That is where we will be heading if the Koch Brother are elected via of thier mouthpiece.

  • http://twitter.com/TenFeet2Hands Johnice Reid-English

    The best personality to represent the BEST country in the world is one how need not fake emotion, caring and is capable of thinking strategically on National and international issues. We are not in need of a willful liar, greed driven businessman who would do anything to make himself feel good and support his cohorts in the 1%. We did that once and once is more than enough. A strong democracy ruled Republic is not a business, it is the standard of humanity and fairness in the view of the rest of the world, we have earned some of that respect back. Mittens is not viewed too kindly abroad, thus, would not have the ear of other world leaders who are struggling to climb out of the financial disaster which hit four years ago.

    POTUS 44 has proven even those World leaders who were against stimulus v austerity to kick start a turn around, regret that they did not choose stimulus. Our economy is slowly climbing, even academic economists say a recovery of such a deep and broad depression requires time, as much as ten years before it is stable at less than 5% unemployment and a significantly high GDP. Without POTUS 44 in the White House for another four years we would not see anything near a recovery with the GOP gutting all of the progress we have made. From Healthcare to the SCOTUS we would be stripped of all that constitutes a democratic way of life. We would become a Nation strangled by zealots, religious, financial, and social norms would disappear, all becoming privatized, or in reality, reconfigured into for profit businesses. That is not how capitalism is meant to function in a Democracy.

    We have a leader in the White House who is a caring human being, with logical and well thought out plans to move the USA back into the top of education, science, technology, health care, infrastructure renovation, ecology, and energy. All without weakening our National defense or strangling the private sector, the GOP are blind to thinking forward; a sign of personal greed which will destroy that party.

    • idamag

      Johnice, Good examples of what you speak: Greece and Spain took the austerity road and had to be bailed out by a country that made jobs and was recovering – Germany. Scandanavian Countries are the richest in the world. They focus on jobs.

  • latebloomingrandma

    Funny how that much ridiculed community organizing gig showed him how to, well, organize.

      YEAH—ISN’T THAT FUNNY!!!!

      Organized WHAT??????

      How to get 47 MILLION people on Food Stamps– RECORD HIGH

      How to have 23 MILLION people out of work, 8% or higher unemployment for 42 months – 3 ½ years.

      Or how to get our Debt up to $16.3 trillion

      How to get gas prices at the highest ever

      How to get our Electric Bills highest ever

      How to get more than half the Americans at least partially financially dependent on the government (but that’s what he wants) then he can control YOU!!!!

      How to lose more than 300,000 educational jobs in the United States

      How to run Operation Fast and Furious

      OR

      How to have our US Ambassador kidnapped which turned into Americans getting killed and then LIE and say you didn’t know ANYTHING ABOUT IT
      WHEN YOU WERE THE ONE THAT SET IT UP WITH YOUR MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD!!!!!!!!!

      How much more “hope and change” are we going to be able to endure?

      • nobsartist

        thanks for the clueless rant allfullofcrap.

        Let me take issue with a few of your useless lying points.

        1. bush created the economy, those people are entitled to food stamps based on the agreement for the Farm Bill.
        a. you are an idiot.
        2. bush put those people out of work with willards help by selling our jobs to china. Plus the traitors that work for mcconnell have filibustered EVERY JOBS BILL.
        a. you are an idiot again.
        3. The debt was 12 TRILLION when President Obama was elected by a majority of Americans.
        a. you are an idiot again.
        4. Gas prices were higher in 2005 after bush invaded iraq “for 65 billion or so, to STABILIZE oil prices” Gas was $1.00 per gallon when bush was elected by idiots like you.
        a. you are an idiot again
        5. Thank the koch brothers for that and they will thank you for supporting them donating hundreds of millions to willard the rats failed 6 year election campaign.
        a. you are an idiot again.
        6. So you are saying that over 175 MILLION AMERICANS are deadbeats?
        a. you are an idiot again
        7. republiKKKONs cut education funding every chance they get.
        a. you are an idiot again.
        8. President Obama and Eric Holder have been absolved of anything to do with that.
        a. you are an idiot again.
        9. Benghazi? mcconell and ryan and the rest of the traitors are responsible for cutting the budget for embassy security.

        Congratulations! You are a certified idiot. You can now leave your mommies house and put in your vote for willard the rat.

          • BDC_57

            no she seeing the space ships.

          • grammyjill

            I told her the helicopter was homing in on her so the black suv with alot of antenna’s can find her. Maybe they would get her help and maybe she’d just disappear. Patriot Act is still in effect.

            I’d watch out if I were you. The patriot act is still in force and some of the things you’ve said could make you a resident of Gitmo.

    • bcarreiro

      romney claimed to left a balanced budget in mass, he left it 3rd worst in the nation(47th) as firefighters,responders and teachers lost their jobs all the while he still was making dirty deals at bain. he makes millions off the misfortunes of other(us)and still wont show all his tax returns because what he does is undermine the system designed for all us not just a selected few when bush made it where they can bank millions by doing nothing but ck a box at the end of the year mostly in the name of charity. see when you donate you should not receive any return this is where the truth lies and the bush tax cuts cant be adjusted to be fair and square because the republican party blocks the future. Obama will adjust the tax code to 20% on capital gains instead of the 14% in which millionares dont have to do a thing but ck a box at the end of the year i believe the only thing u read are the comments and not profound in anything you say just like him the ALL AMERICAN REJECT of 2012.

          Such a nice description of yourself.

    • Sand_Cat

      Let’s hear about all those “scams” you keep gibbering about but never describe. Or are you afraid specifics will show you’re a paranoid idiot without the imagination to even make up plausible lies?

      • BDC_57

        no all just listen to romney for all her infoermation.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/HFYZP2APYPP7H6PWS2ZDQRWFEQ Hillbilly

      That is because you only visit areas where people that are like you live. Stop your screaming and start doing your own research and you will find out just what type of people Romney and Ryan both are. You sound like a 5 year spoiled brat who doesn’t want to be told the truth and doesn’t know how to find the truth. All you do is watch Fox unnews and listen to Limbaugh because your posting sound just like them. Grow up and research things before believing them that is what reasonable people do they don’t believe everything they are told or read until they check it out. They check out the facts then post what they think about a situation. It is very clear you do not check out anything before posting your lies.

      • idamag

        Hill, if you tried to present her with real facts, can’t you just see her putting her hands over her ears and yelling, “nananannanan?”

      • ALLLLAMERICAN

        I am sooooooooooo SORRY your just a Redneck HILLBILLY!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • ALLLLAMERICAN

        HILLBILLY—–
        Here’s some FACTS you mgiht want to look up instead of telling me I’m wrong.

        From the very beginning they have been telling us that ObamaCare not only greatly expands access to but provides taxpayer funding for abortion.

        THIS IS A FACT!!!!!!!

        Look it up and maybe YOU will understand !!!!!!!

        Regardless of what some in the media, representatives of the abortion industry,
        or legislators that support abortion say,

        ObamaCare
        does provide
        taxpayer funding for abortion
        and greatly expands access to abortion.

        ObamaCare requires every American to purchase health insurance, it requires every state to establish health insurance exchanges, and it dramatically expands Medicaid. Each of these – private health insurances programs, exchanges, and Medicaid – can, and in some case are required to, provide coverage for abortion. The result is hundreds of millions of dollars being funneled to the abortion industry every year and the greatest expansion of abortion since Roe v. Wade.
        In fact, the law specifically provides that state health exchanges may cover abortions unless the state enacts specific legislation prohibiting abortion coverage. Moreover, the law’s requirement that insurance providers cover “preventive services” and preventative care are so broadly defined that they could be used to force coverage of abortions and abortion related drugs. Thus, all Americans are forced to purchase health insurance that could cover abortion and in some cases is required to cover abortion.

  • ObozoMustGo

    Obozo a better manager? Huh?????….. bwaaaaaaaaaaahahahahahahahahahahah!!! ROFLMAO!!!!

    This article is proof that they DO NOT drug test as a prerequisite to write for The Memo. In fact, with the embarrasing drivel of constant Obozo campaign propaganda being peddled herein and disguised as journalism, I’d say that we have a strong case to say one MUST BE stoned out of their mind to be given article space on this site. Clearly, Howard Hill has been hitting pipe a bit hard lately.

    “After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay. Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.” Valerie Jarrett, closest advisor to President B. Hussein Obozo

      We love haters……We are ready to move forward, people like you and all american reject are part of the problem. i have a solution, if mitt were in be ready for a civil war my friends. THE END!!!!

      Replying to ObozoMustGo -

      Thank you!!!!

      YOU ARE A CONSTANT SOURCE OF GUT-SPLITTING LAUGHTER!!!

      Your attention span must be extremely short. The ONLY reason Obama was elected President is because of George the Second.

      AND, ANYONE WITH EVEN A SMALL AMOUNT OF INTELLIGENCE AND REASONING POWER WILL REALIZE THAT MITT IS PROPOSING THE SAME POISON THAT GOT US INTO THIS MESS.

      DEFICIT PROBLEMS, ONGOING, UNFUNDED WARS, JOB LOSSES, ETC.

      DO YOU EVER WONDER WHY PRESIDENT CLINTON IS ON THE NATIONAL STAGE WITH THE DEMOCRATS, AND GEORGE THE SECOND IS NEVER EVEN MENTIONED BY THE REPUBLICANS?

      Please, don’t stop your stupid rants.
      There are days that they are the only good laughs I get!!!!!!

      • ObozoMustGo

        Jimmy… I am here to help! And it actually is pathetic that Clinton is the only DemonRAT that has to come save Obozo’s butt. I mean, think about it. Your hero is the only President to be impeached since 1868 and is a known scumbag. That’s pathetic.

        Have a nice day!

        “Fathom the hypocrisy of a political party that has a convention focused on abortion, contraception, and so-called women’s rights, AND has as their big speaker and hero an admitted sexual harasser and accused rapist that was impeached for lying in a court of law about it.” – ObozoMustGo

          HINT: There are more than just TWO choices in the universe.

  • nobsartist

    Top ten reasons mittens is unelectable:

    10. Collected welfare and didnt pay it back
    9. Evaded the draft
    8. Avoided taxes
    7. His job creation program cost American tax payers $76,000 for each low wage job
    6. Lies constantly
    5. Refuses to make public his tax returns even though his own father started the custom 45 years ago
    4. Hates 47% of all Americans
    3. Deducted another $77,000 for a “therapy horse”
    2. Fired 6000 people

    and finally

    1. Takes money from the racist, anti-civil rights John Birch Society.

    Gary Johnson ran a successful business AND cut and balanced a government budget.

    The real shame is that a nation of 300 million people have been brainwashed to believe that there are only TWO choices available for this important position. If you were hiring someone for a management job, how many resumes would you consider? How many candidates would you interview?

    TWO. That’s REAL smart.
