Future of the Economy: President Obama Should Appoint Mitt Romney Secretary of Jobs

President Obama won the election. An election is the start of participating in a democracy. Our country is the product of all previous decisions. All of us should be on the team for taking America and making it the brightest spot in the world; so bright that it lifts everyone across the planet. The road there includes Mitt Romney.

Mitt Romney ran on a passionate belief that he knew how to create jobs. I think he probably does knows a few things. He's obviously smart and successful, and his concession speech also impressed me. In the way he received the loss I think he became a bigger man than he was the day before. Regardless of what you thought of Mitt Romney before; I was impressed.

Campaigns contort candidates into all sorts of odd positions. The Mitt Romney of the campaign is not a person I liked, but I think he was guided in ways to appeal to those he needed to reach in order to have a shot. I did not like the John McCain I saw in his campaign, but the few times I've met Senator McCain I have liked him. I believe Romney is a great person and now that the campaign is over he has a role.

In his concession speech I believe we saw the real man. Throughout the campaign, we saw someone passionate about creating jobs. He did solidly make the case that he knows how to create jobs.  

I propose that President Obama make Mitt Romney the Secretary of Job Creation. All day, every day, Romney can focus from morning to night on one mission; to create more jobs. To help craft legislation. To help scan through regulations. He can help pull bipartisan support for jobs measures. The country has a lot of problems and I believe Romney is part of the solution.

In a story, every great conflict has an untying. The untying happens when one character who understands the entire picture walks in and creates a release. Romney's speech was potentially the untying of many of the political problems we have had.  I think it helped set the stage for an improving America.

Mitt Romney. Secretary of Job Creation. Your thoughts?

Serial-Entrepreneur CEO Biz Owner. Follow @JoinTeamAmerica a bipartisan team producing ideas to improve America and government policy. I am vehemently against those who work to score political points rather than provide solutions. I fight to point out when bias and misinformation are being put forwards. I believe our Democracy is a gift, it needs to be cherished, and honored by having well thought out debate, with primary source data to back up statements. Especially, while we are holding up Democracy as the example to the world. I am an independent who will appear partisan, but only when challenging those who are working to score political points rather than working to find solutions to build success in America. Bottom line: Policies need input from each perspective. Real problems need to be addressed in ways that actually get the job done. Policies should find the line between maximum individual responsibility and minimum input of government resources; that will actually get the job done. All government programs have major problems and must be put into a rigorous and constant state of improvement. While they all have major problems, the US military is the strongest in the history of the world, NASA has had the greatest exploration achievements off planet Earth in the history of mankind, and somehow America is the number one economy in the world. I believe the most important organization to support and put energy into today is www.nolabels.org
