    Romney's Massachusetts...

    ...Suffered the second-largest labor force decline in the nation: Only Louisiana, which was ravaged by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, saw a bigger decline in its labor force than Massachusetts during Romney’s tenure as governor. The US Census Bureau estimated that between July 2002 and July 2006, 222,000 more residents left Massachusetts for other states than came to it. That decline largely explains the state’s decreasing unemployment rate (from 5.6 to 4.7 percent) while Romney was in office, according to Northeastern University economics professor Andrew Sum. At the same time, the nation as a whole added 8 million people to the labor force.

    I'll climb out on the same limb I occupy when people try to blame the entire economic mess the nation is in on OBAMA.

    Blaming Mitt for the economic mess MASS got itself in is dumb dumber DUMBEST.

    Obama and Romney's records have an interesting parallel. They both had to deal with disastes created by previous Republican holders of their offices.

    Recent Governors of Massachusetts

    William Weld - January 3, 1991 – July 29, 1997 - Republican
    Paul Cellucci - July 29, 1997 – April 10, 2001 - Republican
    Jane Swift - April 10, 2001 – January 2, 2003 - Republican
    Mitt Romney - January 2, 2003 – January 4, 2007 - Republican

    Fair enough, but it ain't about you...

    ...on this Sunday's talk shows, at least two Romney surrogates gave Governor Romney credit for the percentage drop in the unemployment rate in MA-------touché.

    If you don't think the source is credible, debunk the facts it contains otherwise you're just talking
    to the :eusa_hand: -pewsh!-



    During Governor Mitt -the job creator- Romney's regime, Massachusetts...



    ...Lost 14 percent of its manufacturing jobs:
    Massachusetts lost 14 percent of its manufacturing jobs during Romney’s time in office, according to Sum. The loss was double the rate that the nation as a whole lost manufacturing jobs. In 2004, Romney vetoed legislation that would have banned companies doing business with the state from outsourcing jobs to other countries.

    For the few readers who have never bothered to study Latin and believe Del has resorted to posting 'word salad' a not uncommon form of address, I will translate:

    "After this, therefore because of this."

    of course after eating, and because of eating, we shit. Don't we? Ergo, hence and therefore.

    actually it translates as "with this, therefore because of this"

    it's just a fancy way of calling bullshit
