Don't forget—W has an MBA.
I love these guys - I think Herman Cain is the most recent example - who say "We need to run the government like a business!" But what does that mean, exactly? Does it mean government should make a profit? Well, that's called a surplus. We know what happened the last time the G ran a surplus, right before W took office. W said "The G's been overcharging you, and I'm going to give you back your money." What he overlooked is the simple concept that almost every economist (No, not the ones Ron Paul quotes) agrees on: surpluses during prosperity, AKA saving for a rainy day; deficits during downturns, well, that rainy day is here.
Or does it mean think of yourself as CEO? Almost unlimited power until the Board kicks you out? Mayor Bloomberg of NY has been quoted as saying what a huge adjustment it was for him, a billionaire entrepreneur, to become Mayor and not just be able to say "Do this, do that."
"Run a government like a business?" "My business experience will help turn the economy around?" I don't think so.
