Which candidate, based purely on their personal experience, seems to have a better grasp of bottom-line, dollars-and-cents issues? Community organizer and all-round nice guy Obama, or balance-sheet warrior Romney? It’s not a conclusion many Canadians will wish to draw. I don’t particularly wish to myself, because I like Obama. But if you drill into the policy differences just a bit, the result is clear: It’s a good thing Canadians can’t vote in this election. If we could, we’d be acting overwhelmingly against our own interests.
