    That stinks!!! Leave it to Rachel.

    On "Fox News Sunday" yesterday, host Chris Wallace asked a series of pointed questions to House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Austan Goolsbee, the former chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers for President Obama, but there was one question in particular that stood out for me.

    Wallace asked Ryan:

    "You know, it's not just a question of vision, it's also a question record because of these men have served in office and have records in office. So, let's take a look at that.

    "Mitt Romney was governor of Massachusetts for four years, Congressman Ryan. And during that time, Massachusetts ranked 47th of the 50 states in job creation. The only reason the unemployment rate went down [was] because so many people left the work force -- more than any other state in the country except Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina. Is that a record to be proud of?"

    The Maddow Blog - 'Is that a record to be proud of?'

    How can Romney even begin to defend that??? What a horrible record!!!
