    romney would have been better served to run for a second term, and then screw. I liked him when he first got elected. Turned a billion dollar deficit into a blanced budget. I despise him for carpet bagging and leaving us for his personal ambitions so early.

    I agree.
    And because of his decision to run for national orifice, he had to make decisions that would appeal to other parts of the country that had nothing to do with our affairs. That, to me, was the worst thing he did, and that is the reason he is un-electable because he can't point to his disservice to the Commonwealth as an example of his executive ability. He's not a solid candidate but, then again, Bush was re-elected.

    Actually, during the Healey campaign, Romney people claimed the state had a balanced budget, but it turns out it may face a deficit of up to $1 billion.

    http://www.boston.com/news/local/articles/2006/12/30/state_could_face_1b_deficit_in_07/

    Patrick aides said Romney administration officials had been painting a grim picture of state finances in private meetings last month and this month. In the Nov. 27 presentation to Patrick's budget advisers, Romney aides projected a budget deficit for fiscal 2008, which begins in July, of between $400 million and $1.1 billion.

    The deficit assumed that state tax revenues would grow by 3 percent.

    That number was also contained in an official bond document the Romney administration sent to the US Securities and Exchange Commission on Nov. 10.

    This week, however, Romney aides publicly released a budget blueprint that predicted revenues would increase by 4.8 percent, which would lessen any potential deficit. The blueprint also ignored some expenses, including funding some pension debt.

    Patters, I'm talking about what he inherited. He inherited a very lousy situation, and did turn it around. That's all I was saying.

    Wow. You sound identical to the anti-Catholic bigots who said the same thing about JFK 40+ years ago. Just when I start to think we've advanced as a society, I see more of the same disgusting bigotry that's been here all along.

    nobody named "Mitt" should ever become President.

    that would go down in history with "Millard" as one of the worst
