Business and government are two different animals

You cannot run a country the way you run a business. You can’t, because the primary goal of business is profit. Hey, and when things get tough you can always declare bankruptcy! Isn’t that cool? Yeah, I guess you can declare bankruptcy or simply not pay your bills… if you’re Mexico or Argentina! The primary goal of government (at least ideally) is public service. What in the world does that mean? Not always so clear. The objectives of business are extremely tangible. Not so much for a country. Thus, the skillsets and temperament required are different.
