It takes a tough man to make a tender chicken

So the question of the hour is: if Myth Romney is so tough, why did he bail out for his last two years as head honcho of the "toughest place."

The Man, the Myth and the Legend in his own Mind is on the airwaves dredging up pictures of John Kerry and Mike Dukakis to proclaim:
"In the most liberal state in the country, one Republican stood up and cut spending, instead of raising taxes. He enforced immigration laws, stood up for traditional marriage and the sanctity of human life."
OK. He stood up with (convicted felon) Speaker Tom Finneran to balance the state budget (as required by law) without taxes. His other claims, well, they just don't pass the smell test, as this post (by way of Blue Mass. Group) vividly point out. (I particularly like Ted Kennedy saying Romney was "multiple choice" on a woman's right to choose.)

And Romney has yet to be really called to task for, in effect, quitting his job with two years to go after trying to engineer a GOP resurgence in the Legislature that, by any standard, failed miserably.

If Myth Romney is as tough as he claims to be, why did he proclaim, with 20-20 hindsight, that he would have been "a lot smarter to stay in Michigan" if he had foreseen his plunge into GOP politics.

Yeah Myth, you're tough. Not as tough as Frank Perdue of course. Just tough enough to fool some folks for a little while.
