The state showed marginal improvements after four years, they now argue, moving from an economy that was losing jobs into one that was adding jobs. Can Obama use the identical standard? Of course not. In one of the most jaw-dropping quotes of the year, Ed Gillespie went so far as to argue on Sunday that Romney's entire first year as governor shouldn't count. Asked about the fact that Massachusetts ranked 47th in job creation during Romney's tenure, Gillespie complained, "[Democrats are] averaging out over the four years. So, they are bringing down the gains of his fourth year in office, which shows the real impact of his policies, and diluting it with the first year in office." The Reaction: Mitt Romney's hypocrisy on his job creation record in Massachusetts Republicans are saying you can't use the first three years of his time has governor because he inherited a "bad economy". Hello, knock knock. Can anyone say "DOUBLE STANDARD"? And what is the Republican "Job Plan"? Just kidding. We know they don't have one.
