Former Boston Herald Editor To WSJ: Romney’s A Potemkin Republican

Eric Convey, a former reporter/editor at the Boston Herald, had this op-ed in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal:

Massachusetts Lessons About a President Romney

Its more likely he will try to reform Obamacare than make good on his promise to repeal it.

Nut graf:

What does Mr. Romney’s Massachusetts experience suggest about how he’d run things from the Oval Office? It’s a safe bet that defenders of government spending from both parties will have to bolster their data with well-founded economic arguments if they want him to stay his hand.

There’s a good chance his champions in corporate America and on Wall Street will find themselves disappointed—even severely disappointed—if he makes good on his promise to rein in business-tax loopholes and other government pandering to companies.

The voice of experience, no?

  1. Who knows what Mitt Romney would do as president? In nearly 20 years of Romney-watching, I doubt he has ever shown he has true convictions about much of anything, besides the ambition that Mitt Romney should be president.

  2. Has there ever been a CEO or businessman who made a good president? Serious question.
