Obama, Romney, Gingrich or Paul: Who Will Grow Your Investments?
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- "Obama, Romney, Paul or Gingrich: Who would you assign to grow your investments?"
Responses on TheStreet's Facebook page were overwhelmingly diverse as many readers expressed dissatisfaction with one or all of the politicians. The most repeated response was "none of the above," but below you will find some other interesting reader remarks. No one chose Newt Gingrich.
Francisco E. Javier Perez: I'd trust Paul to get the government out of the way of the economy so that the free market will grow my investments!Peggy Turner Haning: No one manages your money better than you. However from this list the choice is easy. Romney is the only one with a proven track record. John Reed: Considering Bain Capital has more money than I do, Mitt. Obama wants to redistribute it. Michael Dossett: None of the above. I'd use my professional financial manager. That said, I'm supporting President Obama's re-election. Kevan Cooper: The question should be: "Who would you assign to protect your investments." Jan Enzo Tesar: Warren Buffett. Cheryl Lee: I'd go with Buffett, too, or maybe [Donald] Trump. Matt Revan: I'd have to say Mitt considering he's the only guy to have actually done it. Joel Hewins: PAUL! Chris Gay: I would think a dartboard would be better. Phil Wagner: John Corzine! Oh wait, that's been tried before! Fail. Kay Vickery: None of the above. The conversation doesn't stop there. Add your thoughts in our comments section below, and tell us the politician you'd really trust to grow your investments.
