    Compromise was the only way he would make any possible headway. With a different legislature the outcome may have been totally different no? The left wants to measure him against the accomplishments of his state yet not measure Obama with the same yardstick. Why is that?

    We have seen what Obama wants to do with our country and it has left the nation wanting. Romney's positive numbers are up 15 points while Obama's are going in the opposite direction.

    Now I know Romney's claims to conservatism are somewhat empty but I do expect he being a pragmatic man will see the direction were going is wrong and as such would strive to go the opposite direction.

    Romney took care of the LOLberal debt ridden Mass, gave them the socialist medical system the morons clammered for and left the position with a surplus. He's at least got that going for him.
    Obama is a shadowy quick upcomer that has no claims to past success and his current record sucks donkey log. That is why he is not measured. That and LOLberals are fucking brain dead.

    Overall, Romney’s favorability rating still trails President Obama’s, but the gap is far narrower than it’s been. In the new poll, 41 percent of all Americans express positive views of Romney; 52 percent do so for Obama. Just over a month ago, the president had a 56 to 35 percent advantage on this score.

    Mitt Romney plays the jobs card - MarketWatch




    The Republican contender was the governor of Massachusetts from January 2003 to January 2007. And during that time, according to the U.S. Labor Department, the state ranked 47th in the entire country in jobs growth. Fourth from last.




    The only ones that did worse? Ohio, Michigan and Louisiana. In other words, two rustbelt states and another that lost its biggest city to a hurricane.

    The Massachusetts jobs growth over that period, a pitiful 0.9%, badly lagged other high-skill, high-wage, knowledge economy states like New York (2.7%), California (4.7%) and North Carolina (7.6%).

    The national average: More than 5%

    Indeed his state did which begs the obvious question.....WHY?

    I bet you don't know but will still blame him while at the same time blaming the GOP for Obama's shitty record.
