    IMHO it isn't his record at Bain.
    I think it's his record in Massachusetts.
    During his term the state's rank in job creation fell from 36th to 47th. This fairy tale of "his history of creating jobs" is pure myth.

    On spending, from 2003 to 2007 Massachusetts's goverment spending went from 22.25 billion to 25.44 billion (about 24%).

    His biggest accomplishment was implementing ObamaCare in Massachusetts,

    Sure, candidates successfully pull off similar illusions on the voters all too frequently.
    Can Romney pull it off?

    Doesn't look like he did in Massachusetts. His exit approval rating was 34. And now, the only place that elected him to public office is considered out-of-reach for him with Obama leading by 22 points (RCP poll average).

    When was the last time a president was elected without winning his home state?

    Can he do better as president than Obama? Yes, I believe he can...and will.

    Robmoney is trying to avoid his record in office.

    So he wants to tout his great business acumen.


    Problem is he was very good at making money while fucking up American lives.

    Corporate raiders are not one of the good guys according to MOST Americans

    The evidence doesn't seem to support that position, but to each his or her own.

    It is interesting to me that initially the Romney campaign really wanted to tout his Bain experience (and NOT his Masschusetts record) but when folks started kicking the tires and checking under the hood of that Bain experience - all of a sudden it's "dirty politics."

    Now, they're trying to shift focus away from Bain and tout his Massachusetts experience. I wonder how much scrutiny THAT record can withstand before all of a sudden it becomes "off limitis" too?
