NZ Herald Business reporter Fran O'Sullivan writes a commentary regarding her support of a Romney presidency.
The article is typical Fox News gloss overlooking the salient points. But the readers comments are overwhelmingly derisive of the article and quite amusing to read.

I disagree entirely. Theres far more to Obama than oratory or personality. Obama has far more astute foreign policy than George Bush and a much fairer and more inclusive view of American society than Bush or Romney. Obama far more economic commonsense than Romney. His policies have got the economy growing at 2% despite the huge crash and republican obstructionism.
The bank bailout called "tarp" was required or the entire economy would have collapsed and most of the money has been paid back. Obama has done more to regulate banks or push for lower bonuses than Romney will ever do.

The only 'actions' for which Romney has a track record are, first, an amazing capacity for changing his mind when it suits his purpose; second, a predilection for lying; third, advocating policies which favour the rich minority; fourth, shipping jobs to China; fifth, displaying an amazing ignorance of global affairs, not least of events in the Middle East; and, sixth, exhibiting a slavish adherence to the failed policies of the past. Come to think of it, it all sounds and feels a bit like home.
