The 30 Second Ad I wish Team Obama would run.**

USA Today Front Page:  Poll: Romney preferred over Obama to handle the economy

"You've got to give the voters credit — economic reality trumps campaign rhetoric," Romney pollster Neil Newhouse says. "It's pretty clear that the negative weight of the economy is having more impact on voters than President Obama's campaign ads distorting Gov. Romney's record."
Not shockingly, USA Today fails to include Governor Romney's failed economic record as Governor.  The article also ignores that the words Romney is using in 2012 are the same, exact words he used while running for Governor in 2002 or  

Romney Redux

Romney failed to deliver on his promises in 2002.  Why would anyone believe Romney will deliver now?

The record is clear:  Romney failed on all his promises as Governor.   Romney left office with a 34% approval record:

Romney's Approval Ratings as Governor of Massachusetts

The truth, in my opinion and backed up by facts, is that Romney hasn't a clue how to govern.  He's a 20-year quick-deal, leveraged buyout, company flipping, private-equity veteran that doesn't require a long attention span or a personal attention to details.  It's always "On to the next deal" experience.  Details?  That's what his Bain team, band of lawyers, and accounting firms were for, which probably explains why Governor Romney installed some of his Bain associations into his Governor team.

SOME FUN READING

BACK IN 2003

A blogger decided to keep a diary of Governor's Romney's term of office.

The blog is called  

Romney is a Fraud
Subtitled:  Satirically tracking the Fraud Governor and his band of sidekicks.

It's a searchable blog that I highly recommend.

The search result for Bain is too long to post here, but is a fun read.  There are some fun facts that the media has yet to catch up with.

Here' one the media isn't covering this year:  Gov Mitt outsourced the resource call center for Massachusetts welfare recipients TO INDIA!

WHDH-TV reporter Andy Hiller recently reported that Team Reform is out-sourcing jobs to the subcontinent.

Seems that each new Massachusetts welfare card contains a toll-free telephone number that connects to a customer service center in India.

So here's a question: if the Fraud Governor really wanted to jump-start jobs in the Commonwealth and get people off welfare, why didn't he help create a Massachusetts-based customer service center for welfare questions? He could have staffed the call center with former welfare recipients.

Romney Seeks Tax on Blind

Last year, the Fraud Candidate pulled a 1-800 hotline out of Joe Malone's campaign bag-of-tricks, and asked the public to phone in tips to cut the cost of government. And they just hit pay dirt, because the Fraud Governor is about to crack down on some real free-loaders.

Team Reform has announced that they are going to crack down on rapid transit turnstyle jumpers. And among those in their target sights are (insert trumpet noise here) the blind. Seems as though the sightless have been working a sweet little deal where they have been riding the MBTA for FREE! FREE!

Well, the boon-doggle stops here.

The Fraud Governor has proposed that the Travel ID cards for the sight-impaired will no longer be free. (source: Boston Globe, 5/29/2003) No sir, those free-loading grifters will have to pony up just like everyone else.

Said an aide to Romney's loathsome $150,000 a year spokesman, "the (fraud) governor ran on a platform that he would reform state government and devise a budget that's balanced without raising taxes. Because most of the fees haven't been raised for years, and we needed to ensure that we could pay for services, we needed to raise the fees."

Here's the 1 Minute Ad Version

"Broken Promises: Romney's Massachusetts Record"

2007 MOODY'S LISTS MASSACHUSETTS AS HAVING THE HIGHEST STATE DEBT IN 2007 WHEN ROMNEY LEFT

Politifact published this Moody report, as it is no longer available on line.  Romney left the highest debt in the country.  This kind of debt

States can, however,  borrow money in order to fund capital improvements -- everything from new roads to new school buildings. That’s the debt we’re talking about here.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
