Great Talker or Great Doer?

There are currently two men vying for the presidency of the United States.  Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.

Barack Obama is a skillful campaigner who unfortunately (for us), once elected, can’t seem to actually accomplish anything.  Well, his cronies might view his services as valuable, but playing Robin Hood only worked well in medieval England, when “robbing the rich to give to the poor” actually helped the poor.

Mitt Romney is a terrible campaigner, but he is someone who actually has accomplished many things. Unfortunately (for him) he has never had a chance to play Robin Hood, so he is portrayed by the Obama campaign as being heartless, detached, uncaring and on the side of the rich.

The simple question that must be asked is should we elect a man who merely talks a great game, or one who actually accomplishes something?  Do you want to vote for a man who is wonderful at the trash talk that often precedes a boxing match but has proven over and over that he has a glass jaw?
