    So Tell Me About Mitt Romney

    So Tell Me About Mitt Romney

    I’ve been dreading this day, because even when I asked you to tell me about other candidates, you told me about Mitt Romney.

    While the MSM tells us that Sarah Palin is the most divisive Republican, I don’t think that’s true in the Republican primaries.

    Please hold on one second while I brace myself.

    Okay, now I’m ready.

    So tell me about Mitt Romney.

    Update: For a reasoned argument against Romney and in favor of Pawlenty, read this. (via HotAir)

    I will take any of you on….I am tired of stupidity.

    Tim Pawlenty. Minnesota's tax burden increased 1/2% during his tenure, from 9.8% when he took office in 2003, to 10.3% in 2009 (the latest year data is available), changing his state from the 17th most taxed state to the 7th most taxed state in the nation.


    During Governor Romney's tenure from 2003-7, Massachusetts dropped from 13th to 17th in national tax burden rankings. Gov. Romney created the 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007 budgets (and slashed spending in the existing 2003 budget as soon as he entered office). Massachusetts' combined state and local tax burden was the same in 2007, the year he left office, as it was in 2003 when he took office, at 9.9%. However, he cut taxes while city and county governments within the state raised them, which caused a small bulge in the tax burden in the years in between but ended the tax burden at the same level in the year of his final budget as in the year he entered office.

    This improvement in tax burden rankings occurred while Massachusetts experienced the worst economic situation in the nation and had the highest ratio in the nation of democrats controlling the legislature, a veto-proof 85%, whose leadership stated intentions to raise taxes.

    Romneys Economic Record:

    @Dennis, wow, those ad hominem attacks and that sneering vitriol miraculously changed my mind. No wonder socialist progressives engage in childish name calling and petty, angry rants. They work! Really. I'm so voting for Romney, even if I have to write his name in (maybe you'll let me borrow your crayon?).

    I agree with pubsecrets: "his support for and (tortured) defense of the MA healthcare plan tells me he has too much of a statist streak in him".

    I agree with fuzzy slippers: "Romney is an opportunist, a big government/nanny state progressive, and an all-around sleazeball."

    I agree with tim: "He will NOT be getting my vote. I would rather have four more of obama, just so EVERYONE can see just how stupid we were to elect this bunch of collectivist ninnies in the first place, and maybe just maybe we will be done playing with leftist ideology."

    If I am standing in the voting booth looking at two checkboxes with Obama and Romney next to them, I'll either vote for the Libertarian candidate, or I'll write in Barry Soetoro. I actually love the write-in idea: it's a loud and clear statement that this was a vote against Romney, and an explicit vote of no confidence in Obama, with a few strokes of the pen.
