Romney is rich, but has better experience

Editor, the Advocate:
Sunday's letters featured a writer who believes we should have a President in charge who was not born a millionaire. Well, you have one, 'Obama!' But guess what? Barack and his wife have become millionaires/or almost within the past three years and six months. Unfortunately, we have suffered from the fact that Obama lacks business experience. The American taxpayers are trillions in the hole, if you can imagine that amount of money lost. Yes, Romney was born to rich parents, but what they gave him was funds for an excellent education and then, on his own, he became a self-made millionaire. For which we should thank God for the opportunity to have the chance to put our country back together again. Mitt's business experience helped him pull the 2002 Olympics and Paralympics out of the financial hole. I believe that most Americans would choose an educated, self-made man over one who had a difficult time paying his rent. Romney has a birth certificate and has grown up in the culture of the USA.
