Fox just ran a live event of Romney/Ryan at a High Point, North Carolina furniture factory...
Twice in his speech, Romney warned that the nation cannot become like CALIFORNIA.
Wasn't it Peggy Noonan who just recently wrote a column urging Romney to make that comparison, because most American voters certainly know what THAT means---as opposed to the allure of Europe?

Hmmmmmm, another step in the right direction for Mitt.
Impossible, Mitt is equal to or worse than Obama. /sarc
And what would Mitt have America become like? MASSACHUSETTS?
It's the hand we've been dealt, so let's see if it can be played well.
The down ticket races are extremely important and if they go well, we have a much better chance of surviving regardless of which party wins the WH, but an even better chance with Ry...I mean Romney.
As a Californian, I am insulted /s
Amen great line by mitt!
Hey as a Massachusetts native that ain’t right.
The state income tax in MA is flat. That is 5.85% rate.
NOt like Maryland which is progressive. where i am right now. Also
Maryland increased taxes this spring over $100,000.
Also, Mass. has property tax 2.5% -— since 1980-—that Cristie tried to
get for New Jersey.
Gov. Deval Patrick Romney’s successor did raise sales tax to 6.25% from
5% a few years ago.
But Massachusetts has a reform independent streak. Scott Brown, anyone?
But I do admit that Dems have been running the state with too much a
Bwaaa ha ha ha!
ZING....That will leave a mark.
Me too bump from San Diego way.
Is Massachusetts running the same deficit in pensions and budget problems that California is running? More importantly, did Massachusetts do it during Romney’s tenure?
One thing about FR: one can always count on back handed support for Obamugabe from some in a thread that shows Romney doing something right.
What say you, Governor Moonbeam?
And year by year, CA is becoming more and more Democrat.
Seems like Gov Palin had something re: CA on a piece she released this morning...
Yes, they are totally Democratic, i.e. a one-party state which is not a natural condition for human beings. Somewhere somebody will start a counter-movement of some kind within the Democratic party, is my guess, and it will not necessarily be a ‘conservative’ counter-movement.
What I mean is, one-party states almost always break up, or down, as you will, into rival groupings. It seems to be human nature. Political monopolies of thought and opinion are very hard to maintain.
Point taken, but California is even worse. California is a true basket case and tying Greece to California and waring that Obama is taking the entire USA down that path is a good strategy. I am glad to see him saying this stuff.
Uhg ... please please don’t take campaign advice from Peggy Noonan, she’s like George Will without the IQ.
