Crisis management skills a must for presidential candidate, says former Cache Republican Party chairman

Mitt Romney is making it clear now that he’s going to fight to win the Republican presidential nomination. That’s what David James, former Cache County Republican Party chairman who now serves on the Republican Party’s State Central Committee, said following Wednesday’s presidential debate. James said all four candidates are good persons, but one criteria he feels is important is crisis management. “Most presidents wind up being faced with a crisis. It makes or breaks them. Katrina broke George W. Bush because he didn’t handle it right. He did very poorly with the financial crisis of 2008. I want someone that can handle a crisis, and from everything I can tell, I’m not sure that Senator (Rick) Santorum has been tested in that way,” James said. James said Romney survived a crisis while he was a young man serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in France, and also when his wife was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
