About that business experience of Romney’s . . .
Leslie Epstein writes: Over the last 100 years, the three presidents whose experience in business most resembles Mitt Romney’s are George W. Bush (oil, baseball), Herbert Hoover (mining, secretary of commerce), and Warren G. Harding (newspaper publishing). They brought the nation, respectively, the Iraq War and the great recession; the Great Depression; and the Teapot Dome scandal.
