    In the debate Romney said he worked across the aisle. It seems that was mostly on healthcare and not much else.

    So he somehow forced an 80% democrat legislature to do what he said?

    Im not buying it.

    How many links to bullshit websites are you going to trot out, and not defend any of the bullshit that is being spewed forth.

    What a joke.... get a grip!

    He had a 37% approval rating when he left office knowing he couldn't run for a 2nd term successfully with that record. His work with the legislature was rubber stamping what they passed for the most part because if he vetoed everything, he would look even worse. But many of those who knew him and were in the legislature at the time said he was aloof, didn't know the legislator's names when encountering them in the hallway, isolated himself with a roped off area (unlike other governors have done), closed one of the elevators for his use exclusively instead of sharing it with legislators as the were used to with other governors. He was not well-liked nor did he work across the aisle most of the time.

    You think he is going to sign legislation he thinks is bad for the state simply to claim he did something?

    I won't answer posts that have low level one liner profanity in them and which don't respond to the points being made either intelligently or with links to other people saying he was a wonderful governor with high approval ratings and fondly remembered by legislatures. "Nuff said. BTW my font is bigger than your font!
