Letter writer Bud Gibbs ("Romney is more qualified to be president than Obama," Sept. 4) contends that Mitt Romney is better due to a better resume. That is just a wee bit silly. If Mr. Gibbs would have been around, he surely would have voted for Thomas Dewey over Harry Truman. After all, Mr. Dewey was governor of New York, a successful businessman, and graduated form the finest schools. President Truman was just an unsuccessful haberdasher. However, Mr. Truman went on to become possibly one of the top 10 U.S. Presidents in history.
Mr. Gibbs, if he voted in the Republican presidential primary of 1980, probably would have voted for the far superior resume of George H.W. Bush over that actor Ronald Reagan. Mr. Gibbs probably voted for Albert Gore, the experienced former U.S. Senator, vice president and U.S. Army veteran over the clearly inferior resume of George W. Bush. There are many other such examples.
