Romeny has been asked many questions and he has given many answers to a single question.  However, one question I have not heard that I believe will have a significant impact..nail in the coffin if you will...is this: "Mr. Romney, if you are running on your skills as a governor, why is it that Massachusetts will not vote for you?"  

I have heard many times that the best experience you can gain prior to being president is being a governor.  I could be wrong, but I don't think a governor who has ever ran for president has lost his state. This has happened with senators and congressman--but a governor?  I've never heard of that.  I don't want to hear that Massachusetts is a "blue" state--this state made him governor.  Also, Reagan won "blue" California and Clinton won "red" Arkansas. Why?  The state believed each did a good job.  They supported their governor.  Why is it that Massachusetts will not vote for Romney--it's not even a contender!  This state is firmly with Obama.  If this question were actually asked, what possible response would Romney have?  What spin/waffle/non-answer could he possible give?  There is no response that can save him from this question.  If it is asked, he will lose ground.

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.
