Hyperliberal Etch-a-Sketch Romney raised taxes (calling
them ‘fees’) and sank (CATO’s term) the Massachusetts
“* Manufacturing employment fell 7 percent nationwide
those years, but sank 14 percent under Romney, placing Massachusetts 48th among the states.”
Romney ruined Massachusetts.
Romney also INSTALLED RomneyCARE and Gay Marriage
and covered up the BIG DIG and put in
liberal, murderer-freeing, judges.
LET’s LET HIM DO THAT TO AMERICA, too. [/s]
He didn’t have a Republican congress pushing him in MA. Don’t forget the last 2 years of the Bush admin were controlled by a Dem Congress that went on a spending spree and never allowed a audit of Fannie Mae which killed the economy.
In most cases, congress has far more to do with losing jobs than the President/Gov does. I doubt Romney wrote Romneycare, he only signed what the congress wrote.
Oregon is as communist as MA and I would kill for a Gov as conservative as Romney. We have a full blown Marxist but our congress kept him under control.
You’ve made your points quite well, but I do have a question.
Only two horses in the finale have any chance of winning. What then?
So a one term GOP governor in the bluest of blue states ruined MA all by himself? Did the MA Supreme Court have any role? What about a state legislature that is now controlled overwhelmingly by the Dems--35-4 (1 vacancy) in the Senate and 127-33 in the House?
Who are you going to vote for, Obama? Romney and Obama are the only ones in the race and with your ranting, etc. you will not be able to change that. So I ask again, since you don't like Romney, are you an Obama supporter? In my opinion, anyone but Obama would be a godsend.
Please note that the 2008 financial collapse started when the Democrats took over the Congress in 2007. And also remember that President Bush had over 50 months of straight job growth and an unemployment rate well below 5.5. And that was after 9/11. So remember again, the economy started to tank when the Democrats took over Congress. Period.
So lt me understand this. Romney as Governor of MA was not responsible for the 40k jobs created in his final year BECAUSE government ncannot create jobs. Ok I get that and I agree. But then we have to listen to a claim that under Romney his State was 48th in job creation.
So Romney gets NO credit for creating jobs but takes a hit for not creating enough even though we admit the government cannot create jobs.
Really, you guys are twisting yourselves into a pretzel here and make no sense whatsoever.
