PROTEST ROMNEY'S TAXPAYER FUNDED CAMPAIGN FOR PRESIDENT

Meet us in front of the State House at 5pm today after work to take
a stand against Romney's wasteful 13 person, $350,000 taxpayer funded
presidential campaign team.

As seen this week in the Globe and Herald, this ridiculous group of
glorified make-up artists work full-time to try to make Mitt Romney
look more like a prime-time presidential wanna-be than the governor
that he isall on our taxpayer money. Each has an ear piece like the
Secret Service, only instead of a gun they are armed with a state
funded credit card that has bought (among other things):

# a round-trip vacation to the Olympics in Athens ,
Greece

# 33 *out-of-state * presidential campaign trips in 57
days

# $2,904 on cars including four-day rental of a
Lincoln Navigator

# and our personal favorite a trip to attend the
Super Bowl!

When Democrat Michael Dukakis was governor he took the Tnot a
motorcadeto work and when he traveled to events he had the help of
one staffer who was also his driver.

Come meet in front of the state house to tell Movie Star Mitt Romney
that we refuse to pay for his presidential campaign, and that we'd
rather have 13 new Massachusetts teachers, firefighters or police
officers than 13 makeup artists!

Make your own sign, or get one there. We'll see you soon!

5. I'll be there. This asshole needs to head back to Utah.
Although, his disastrous performance might just stop us from electing another R governor for a while!!

7. Yeah, but
shouldn't we have learned that from Swift? Or Cellucci?

Or even Weld, whose management strategy for the Big Dig was, "If it's good enough for Bechtel, it's good enough for me"?
