TRIVIAL CONTRADICTIONS

Mitt Romney says we should elect him president because he has run private businesses successfully.  Mitt Romney also says the government should never get involved in running private businesses, such as General Motors.  So he is saying that his principal claim to the presidency is his demonstrated skill at doing something that he says a president has no business doing.  Of course, if he were running for the presidency of a socialist country, whose government owned the means of production, I could see some merit in his argument.
