2. As a Mass Resident during some of Romney's term...
I can tell you, he's nothing !
He left the state more in debt than when his Republican predecessor left office.
He left office when the housing bubble hadn't yet burst.
He left the state with bridges almost ready to collapse.
He left the state having raised college student fees by over 60%
He raised fees on everything by 50-160%
He hardly ever met with the Democratic-majority legislature.
He supported a repeal of Gay marriage rights after the state supreme court approved it.
Other than Romneycare, which was and is a huge success in getting over 98% of the population into some sort of health insurance system, (a plan developed by the Democratic majority legislature, and which assured profits for insurance companies) Romney is not remembered for anything positive in his 4 year, one term tenure as Governor of a state that previously liked to have some Republican executives to balance out the Democratic legislative majority.
Most Republican legislators in Mass are moderates, fiscal conservatives, and social liberals. Romney was fiscally conservative, and pretended to be a social liberal for 4 years. Now, he doesn't want you to know that, because he wants you to vote for him just because you are afraid of a smarter guy who is in the White House now.
If Romney is elected President, following his devotion to the Ryan budget plans, the USA will lead world to sink into a huge depression, making 1929-32 bread lines look like a picnic in the park
But you already know all this.
