Myth rides again

If Mitt Romney was half the success as governor he claims to be, why is he losing Massachusetts by as much as 2-1?

The New York Times fact checks Romney's debate claims of being a bipartisan workhorse and comes up with the same conclusion that's the foundation of this piece of the blogosphere: it's a Myth. Romney is a Fraud.

And you need to look no further than presidential polling results for confirmation. The state that elected him in 2002 has turned against him in resounding fashion: the Real Clear Politics average finds Romney trailing Barack Obama by 24 points.

Take it from those of us who know him best.

You bring up a good point. Since we're totally controlled by Dems in this state, why aren't we living in nirvana? Why is there still poverty crime etc? Why are people moving out of state, or at least the population is not growing as fast as other states? We lost a congressman. Shouldn't people be flocking to this well run commonwealth?

Poverty and crime can not be eliminated, not in a world of scarcity; that said both are well below the national average and at historic lows in MA. MA is still adding population, but we are running into problems keeping young educated professionals and recent grads because of the very high cost of living, and demand to live here.

The cost of education and living exploded under Romney, so maybe direct some questions to his campaign. He only get 50% the blame, as the lack of development in MA and the cronyism of getting housing built is the other problem.

Simply put it there's demand for lots of housing, but everything from NIMBYism to political backslapping keeps a limit on the quotas to fill people pockets. It needs to stop, because it's limiting out ability to grow, and our ability to have young educated people start families and create the next generation of economic drivers.
