Mitt Romney | Setting the Record Straight For all of you conservatives who think Romney is not conservative enough, you need to think again. Romney's only sin is that he was governor of a deep, deep blue state with a stacked deck against him. He dealt with an 85% Democratic legislature. At this time he took a state that was 3 billion dollars in dept and turned that into a 2 billion dollar surplus, he did that in a short 4 years and he did it without raising taxes. that's a 5 billion dollar swing. Is that not conservative enough for you? And for all of you conservatives who tout PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY, yet the minute someone issues a mandate enforcing PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY, you cry foul. Unless you mandate PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY you are never going to get it. And PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY is a conservative platform, it is what we tout, it is what we are all about, but if you are not willing to enforce it, then quit touting it, because it's not going to happen. Mitt Romney was courageous enough to enforce Personal Responsibility.
