Re: [newtech-1] Perspectives from President Obama and Gov. Romney to T40 Question on NY Tech start up community - Obama's reply is a much better response. Instead of taking a pot shot at Romney (as Romney did at Obama in his letter), he has clearly defined what they have done and are continuing to do, instead of these vague notions that Romney has no clue on.
