    What’s wrong with Mitt? “Lousy candidate; highly qualified to be president,” one top Romney official told Politico on Friday. “The candidate suit fits him unnaturally. He is naturally an executive.” Sources close to the presidential candidate added there’s nothing wrong with the campaign: it’s the candidate himself who doesn’t have what it takes as a political candidate. “He’s a great leader, but he’s not a great politician,” another top aide said. “As much as we complain about politicians, we like a good politician. He doesn’t have the hand-on-the-shoulder thing. He’s not quick-witted. He’s an analytical, data-driven businessperson.”
