FLASHBACK: As Massachusetts Governor, Romney Supported Higher Gas Prices

FLASHBACK: As Massachusetts Governor, Romney Supported Higher Gas Prices

By Brad Johnson

As governor of Massachusetts in 2006, Mitt Romney opposed a Republican proposal to suspend the state gas tax during a gasoline price spike, saying “high gasoline prices are probably here to stay.” Romney’s “fit into his broader effort to promote ‘smart growth’ policies in Massachusetts,” Alec MacGillis of the New Republic reports. Romney told the Quincy Patriot Ledger that he opposed increased gasoline consumption:

I don’t think that now is the time, and I’m not sure there will be the right time, for us to encourage the use of more gasoline. I’m very much in favor of people recognizing that these high gasoline prices are probably here to stay.” (Quincy Patriot Ledger, 5/06)

It appears Romney’s Etch-a-Sketch runs on oil.

1. he will lie, cheat, lie, lie and lie again

if that is what it takes to get the nod from the pugs and then you can count on it in the general...he is the biggest chameleon we have witnessed in a long time...you have no idea what he believes or IF he believes anything.
