    Would you hire someone with this job reference?

    Do you have references, Mr. Romney?

    Well, my constituents in MA were hard nuts to crack but at Bain, well, I was unstoppable!

    What do you mean "hard nuts to crack"?

    Well, they didn't like some of my difficult decisions which were for the best. Such as? Well, anti-gay marriage, you know--most people won't admit it but they are against it.

    Anything else?

    Well, I think they were not happy that the perception was I abandoned doing anything for the state and set my sights on running for the presidency about half way through my term.

    So, what was your approval rating when you left office? Any letters of reference from your constituents. I could have my wife and sons who are so proud of me and instead of joining the military to fight for their country, they are serving their country by helping me get elected to the presidency, write some letters for you.

    Fine, but what was your approval rating when you left office?

    Well, it wasn't as high as when I took office. Exactly what was it then? Um...er....I don't recall exactly but somewhere in the vicinity of *clearing throat and mumbling" uh... (unintelligible __%.

    Mr. Romney, we will call you. Don't call us!

    But....but...I have this remarkable Etch-A-Sketch named after me that I'm also going to be marketing and I can cut you in on 50% of the profits once the company is in trouble and we buy them out, creating immense debt for them that they can't pay back and putting a great deal of money in our pockets. Great investment opportunit!

    We'll call you (rolling eyes)!

    Romney vetoed 800 bills while governor of MA, and almost all of them were overriden by the MA legislature.

    Romney was powerless to do much of anything as governor, unless the Democratic legislature supported what he wanted to do.

    Romney As Governor: 800 Vetoes And One Big Deal : NPR

    Keep in mind, no candidate has ever won the presidency without winning his home state.

    Can you ever post anything without profanity and insults? Typical of many Romney supporters (repubs).

    He had a 67% disapproval rating per the article and chart.

    The point being, the ONLY job Romney has held that is similar to the one he is trying to get now ended up with 67% of the people he represented disapproving of his work.

    Massachusettes is a very liberal state.
