Romney proved he could work with the Democrats in MA but he still delivered with the Number #1 educational system out of #50 states! Thats a major accomplishment. Seeing that America is slipping to almost 30th in the world, I'd say we need him.
First off, your assumption that working with Democrats must be detrimental to education in general is insulting. But, on top of that I don't know that you can credit Mitt's governorship with the improvement in Massachussetts--it started earlier and continues to the present day. And despite the good showing in the US, Mass still doesn't approach the top of the heap internationally.

From the Atlantic (worth reading the whole article--it's short):

Is it because Massachusetts is so white? Or so immigrant-free? Or so rich? Not quite. Massachusetts is indeed slightly whiter and slightly better-off than the U.S. average. But in the late 1990s, it nonetheless lagged behind similar states—such as Connecticut and Maine—in nationwide tests of fourth- and eighth-graders. It was only after a decade of educational reforms that Massachusetts began to rank first in the nation.

What did Massachusetts do? Well, nothing that many countries (and industries) didn’t do a long time ago. For example, Massachusetts made it harder to become a teacher, requiring newcomers to pass a basic literacy test before entering the classroom.(In the first year, more than a third of the new teachers failed the test.) The state also required students to pass a test before graduating from high school—a notion so heretical that it led to protests in which students burned state superintendent David Driscoll in effigy. To help tutor the kids who failed, the state moved money around to the places where it was needed most.“We had a system of standards and held people to it—adults and students,” Driscoll says.

ive already checked the facts, most of Romney's points were right on or a little off but obamas points were no where in the ball part. You obviously have to clue what yours talking about. If he lied so many times why would 67% of people on CNN poll which polled more libs than repubs say he won the debate? Its you and other pathetic libs that deny the facts and lie to yourselves.
In the end, it doesn't matter who won the debate. It matters who wins the election.

Personally, I would give Romney the debate win. But I'm still voting for Obama.

Reason? Because even though Romney looked good, took the advantage in running the show and gave clear points, he did so by lying through his teeth--or he's been lying up until now. Who knows and who cares? What we know is that he's not trustworthy.

adjective
1. characterized by or tending toward unprovoked offensives, attacks, invasions, or the like; militantly forward or menacing: aggressive acts against a neighboring country.
2. making an all-out effort to win or succeed; competitive: an aggressive basketball player.
3. vigorously energetic, especially in the use of initiative and forcefulness: an aggressive salesperson.
4. boldly assertive and forward; pushy: an aggressive driver.
This describes Romney last night but is that really the answer to the country's problems? Dictators are also agressive and they are good actors until they gain control. I want a president that thinks before he acts. Vote Obama
I was just reminded of the vision of Mitt's little international jaunt. Cold chills. Too much going on in the world to send out someone wanting to win at all costs.

If you cannot even go to the Olympics without peeing off the Brits, how on earth can he handle the UN, Libya, Egypt, Israel, Iran and all?

Doesn't anyone do research for the truth?
FACT CHECKERS FROM ALL WEB SITES agree that Mitt was aggressive and spewed lies and twisted half truths.
So did Obama.
I wouldn't be rejoicing on a win yet. time magazine conducted a poll.....
80% said and believed Obama was speaking the truth and had substance in his replies, and that says it all.
They "believed" that Obama can use borrowed money (that he's using to fight the war) to reduce the debt?

They "believed" that Romney thinks that Trump (who employs over 20,000 people) is a small businessman?

They "believed" that Obama's plan would cut the deficit by $4 trillion over 10 years (when the CBO found that Obama’s budget would increase cumulative deficits by over $2 trillion over that time)?

They "believed" that the rise in health insurance premiums has been the slowest in 50 years?

If Time Magazine readers "believe" those things, it "says it all", alright... It says that Time Magazine readers are a pretty stupid bunch.

But isn't it funny that the only people who seem to say that are on the side of the candidate who lost the debate?:)

Reader do you think that Obama allowed the new Romney to just fall into his own bucket of dodo with all his lies, because last night was a total turn around on issues. Obama didn't call him a liar, it would have went on all night. We all seen it happening, so it will be the voters saying Romney lied and is dishonest. Obama gave it to the people to see for themselves.

When Obama took office, 65.7% of adults were working. Today, 63.5% adults are working. And despite all these jobs Obama "created", four million fewer people are working today than when Obama took office.

60% of the jobs lost from 2008-2010 paid between $13.84 and $21.13 per hour. 58% of the jobs created since 2010 pay $7.69 and $13.83, so essentially three million people (60% of the 5 million jobs Obama "created") took a net loss of almost 50% of their pay. And four million MORE aren't working at all!

And Obama calls that a "RECOVERY"... and thinks we're headed in the "right direction"?

Can you say "IDI0T"?

You're a true idiot. When your robot loses the race, I guess I can find you still in denial, like the GOP has been for the last 4 years.
You're with my time......

How much more of this "recovery" can YOU take? 4 million fewer people working... Do you think THEY will vote for Obama?

I'd be curious to know the opinion of Ambassador Stevens' family regarding the trustworthiness of Obama. After the investigation, of course. I mean, there's going to be an investigation, correct? I believe that is exactly what Stevens' family is wondering.

If Romney was caught on video saying " I'm going to laugh all the way to the bank if these fools vote me in." You would still vote for Romney because you are blind. No, maybe I have that wrong, because if you were blind you would not see color.

The one color Americans are currently interested in is...green.

They're seeing a lot less of it in their wallets thanks to devaluation of the dollar and its attendant hyperinflation. And if Obamacare is implemented and its new taxes are levied next year, millions of Americans will see even less green.

And I'm not talking about Solyndra.
But I wouldn't expect either you or Obama to make the connection.

So you agree that you would still vote for him even if there was proof he said such a remark.
