"Mitt Romney ran for governor of Massachusetts promising more jobs, less debt, and smaller government. Hereís what Massachusetts got instead:

Jobs: 47th out of 50 states in job creation
Taxes and fees: Increased by $750 million per year
Long-term debt: Increased more than $2.6 billion
Outsourcing: State jobs outsourced overseas
Manufacturing: Jobs declined at twice the national rate

Romney Economics didn't work then, and won't work now."

Leftist simpletons don't realize that the governor of a state does not create law, the legislature does. During Romney's term as governor, Massachusetts was still plagued by the most leftist legislature of any state.

Leftist simpletons think that there is currently an economic "recovery".

Leftist simpletons think that the Obama campaign should "call Romney out"...unfortunately for Obama, they have nothing to call Romney out on. Obama's policies have failed, and failed miserably:

Reported unemployment still at over 8%, while real unemployment hovers at nearly 15%. Both numbers are much, much higher than Obama promised us if congress passed his "stimulus"...which they did.

Fuel prices have doubled while Obama continually blocks domestic drilling and the importation of Canadian oil into the U.S., both of which would lower prices by increasing and stabilizing oil supply.

Food prices rise as Obama's increased regulation of energy and the environment raise costs to produce and transport food.

ObamaCare becomes the nations largest tax increase to date, added to Obama's earlier tax increases. Obamacare also is now shown to be a threat, not a benefit, to better health care.

Obama's foreign policy has alienated allies and emboldened enemies as militant Islamic revolution once again sweeps the middle east, and Iran increases it's belligerence and saber-rattling.

Over half of all states have closed primaries where voters are only able to vote for the candidates in the party they are registered in.

Others require voters to vote in the same party as their last primary vote.

The reason Romney got the nomination is because over time people realized that Romney was, indeed, the better pro-business candidate to challenge Obama's nanny state agenda.

Face it. Mormon Messiah Bishop Smut Romney, pathological liar, is INCOMPETENT at governance.

47th in job creation
1st in debt creation

That is INCOMPETENCE.

Note that Smut Romney's only idea is to bring back Bush policies and his 850,000/month job losses.

Bishop Smutt Romney is pro greed, pro lies, pro bigotry and anti American.

Why doesn't he show his tax returns? Why does he hide money overseas?

Why is he hiding in another of his fancy mansions on vacation from lying and then hiding in the Koch Brother's really fancy mansion at a $50K/plate dinner?

alot of states allow people to switch over to vote which I know people that do it to vote for the other party worse canidate possible and that is what the Democrats did when they went to the poles in the primaries to vote and they selected Republican instead of Democrat and voted for Romney since no Democrat nominee was running against Obama, that tactic is beneficial to the party that currently that is in power.

Well, you go right ahead and explain it to yourself however it makes you feel better. I guess a lot of Democrats are going to have egg on their faces if Romney actually wins, eh? I mean, knowing they had a hand in it and all....

The reality is that Romney was chosen, overall, because he had the best chance of actually beating sitting president Barack Obama. Polls bore that out months ago, and they still do today.

if that was the case on Romney, Romney should have got the nomination in 2008 vs McCain which I knew McCain was a looser too.

Say, didnít Romney once cross over to vote in a Democratic primary?

I wasn't a big McCain fan either. I would have voted for Romney then if we'd have had a primary here in New Mexico.

As it was, I would have preferred to see Sarah Palin lead the ticket in 2008. She'd have been a better President than McCain...and certainly better than Obama. Should have been Palin/McCain rather than the other way around.

Did Romney cross over and vote Democrat? Don't know, and don't care. Election 2012 is the current issue, and Obama, the failure, must be defeated.

The New Mexico Republican party purposely holds their primary late, and skips the primary election if the candidate has already been decided prior to the date of the election, and there are no other candidates in primary races that year.

We had no primary election in 2008, because McCain was already considered the nominee.

A representative of the Republican Party in New Mexico, when asked, said it was a money saving measure.
