Steve Benen over at the Maddow Blog points out:
“I am running for president because I have the experience and the vision to lead us in a different direction,” he said. Later in the same speech, Romney added, “I am running for president because I have the experience and vision to get us out of this mess.”
Of all the qualifications to emphasize, “experience” seems like an odd characteristic for Romney to brag about. Whether or not the presumptive Republican nominee offers a compelling “vision” remains to be seen — at this point, he tends to stick to vague generalities, as part of a deliberate strategy — but experience is a quantifiable quality.
And it doesn’t appear to be Romney’s strong point.
Should he win, Mitt would be the least-experienced President in 100 years.
