It's the day for dueling business endorsements.

“Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have a plan to support small business, so they can grow and create jobs” – Charles Schwab, founder of Charles Schwab Corp.

President Obama announced that Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz endorsed him, saying he showed “significant leadership” on the economy and world affairs.

I doubt that Romney would really support small business, I guess that he would support those who had already made a lot of money. Everybody knows that he always was rich and I am not sure that he can understand the problems average people have. Small business really needs strong support because it's a backbone of the economy, small business owners create jobs and help other even much more than government. The case is not about choice, it's important a new President to help to boost economy and understand the problems Americans have.
