Well it seem some of these libtards are being dishonest. Is anybody surprised? Seems Massachusett's job growth was at 50th before Romney took office and 28th when he left.
It seems that Romney vetoed 844 bills with 707 being overrode. But when you look at the facts he was working with a democrat majority legislature. Most of the vetoed bills were big spending programs the state could not afford. The democrats overrode them anyway.
So if what you say is true it was all those overrides which moved Massachusetts from 50th to 28th. Good job Democrats, I guess Romney still has Romneycare to fall back on as his lone success while governor.

Romney's a businessman. Binders is a word that comes naturally to him.

Peppy just likes making and jarring jam maybe.

It's possible, because there were so many Republicans who voted for President Obama; they're still republicans at heart, you know, if the black guy can't walk on water and heal wounds with his hands; then, he's no damn good.

They want to empower blacks? Oh really now. Tell us how he plans to do that?
Meanwhile, Romney is telling business owners to threaten their employees with being fired if they don't vote for Mitt.
Isn't that considered voter intimidation? If President Obama wins; you're fired?
I think the DOJ should investigate Romney if he really said that. We have to hope and pray this man never becomes president. Homer fears for the Republic.

Who likes Wolf Blitzer? He has no back bone at all, I'll never forget his interview of Dick Cheney wherein he asked a question that Dick didn't like and lambasted Wolf. Wolf cowered like a little lamb. I have no respect for him at all.
LOL

Nothing to do with Blitzer's "backbone" or whether you "like" or "respect" him.

He was just reporting facts your ilk doesn't want to hear.

For the debates they should put out a jar or in Mitt's case a 55 gallon drum to put a quarter in every time either candidate tells a lie. The one with the most quarters is declared the loser.

So , take it you're suiting up and going down there to pepper spray them?

Did you happen to notice that the last few mass murderers were young white men from middle to upper class two parent families?

They're both coming to Boca Raton next week; Leder said he's going to hold another bash for Mitt, this time, they're going to perform body cavity searches on all the guests and have the place sweeped for cameras and listening devices, cuz' this time, they're bringing on the dancing Russian Svetlanas for entertainment.

So catching criminals & solving crimes has no effect on the number of crimes committed, why not just forget about a police department altogether.
I mean, you tell me that the crime rate would not change so why waste the money.
Pay attention, I'll try to type slower.

I said law enforcement officers are NOT hired to prevent violent crimes.

I said nothing about changing the crime rate, catching offenders, or solving crimes which, as everyone but you idiots know, happens AFTER the violent crime has been committed.

God, you libs are ignorant.

what Romney pointed out that most of us--including union members--who have 401Ks with global investments, have investments in China.

now about liberals:

Liberal isn't a disease it is a mental disorder.

Doctors say the liberal agenda preys on weakness and feelings of inferiority in the population by:

* creating and reinforcing perceptions of victimization;
* satisfying infantile claims to entitlement, indulgence and compensation;
* augmenting primitive feelings of envy;
* rejecting the sovereignty of the individual, subordinating him to the will of the government.

“The roots of liberalism – and its associated madness – can be clearly identified by understanding how children develop from infancy to adulthood and how distorted development produces the irrational beliefs of the liberal mind,” he says.“When the modern liberal mind whines about imaginary victims, rages against imaginary villains and seeks above all else to run the lives of persons competent to run their own lives, the neurosis of the liberal mind becomes painfully obvious.”

Connecticut Senator, victims group rail against early release program in Wethersfield

State Sen. Len Suzio, R-Meriden, and a group of families of victims called Tuesday for the state to suspend a program that allows for prisoners to be freed early, asserting that some prisoners who have benefitted from the program have gone on to commit violent crimes, including rape and murder.

This is how you idiot "progressives" are helping keep the violent crime rate down.
