Romney: My private sector experience sets me apart from Perry

But Romney said it is his private sector experience and economic expertise that separates him from Perry and gives the former governor the qualifications to be president. “I think I’m the right guy to be the Republican nominee for President,” Romney said. “In part because I spent 25 years in the private sector and I know how the economy works. I’ve had the occasion to lead four different enterprises successfully. I’ve also had the experience of working in government and helping lead a state and those experiences I think qualify me to get this economy going again. Those people who think the economy really is essential in providing a future for our families and preserving our values, then I think they’re going to look to me as someone who can understand how the economy works and can get it back on track.”
