In a speech this past Friday, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney used communist China as an example of free-enterprise!! I got to go to the Olympic Games in China. It's pretty impressive over there how quickly they can build things, how productive they are as a society.
China's ability to grow so rapidly stems in large part from the government's ability to run projects by fiat. That's the nature of a communist system. They can force companies to work solely on what the Communist party wants. So, yeah, they don't have to deal with regulations because they are totalitarian state that doesn't care about worker safety or adequate wages.
Romney looks at things purely through a business man's eye, which is great for running a "Fortune 500" company, but being President of the United States requires a different way of thinking. Business experience is great, but being president demands being able to think outside the box. Mitt Romney can't do that so well. He's a business plan guy, but as president, the "plan" often goes awry, which calls for an ability to think fast and adapt quickly. That is why Romney's stiffness, rigidity and inability to relate to people other than himself on the campaign trail is a valid concern. The man seems incapable of operating extemporaneously.
