Romney remembered as CEO governor

Boston (CNN) – It is one of Mitt Romney's favorite selling points. Romney often points out as governor of Massachusetts, he worked with a mostly Democratic legislature to tackle his state's problems.

"It did not take a rocket scientist to figure out if I was going to do anything as governor, I had to have a working relationship with the Democrats," Romney said at a campaign event last year in Nashua, New Hampshire.

    I believe we need to slim and trim the budget. To do this it would be wise of america to hire a CEO.

    We all know he's an elitist. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure that out.

    "It did not take a rocket scientist to figure out if I was going to do anything as governor, I had to have a working relationship with the Democrats," Romney said at a campaign event last year in Nashua, New Hampshire.

    Yet Romney wants to be the nominee of a party that prides itself on not having a working relationship with Democrats, and will disagree with Obama no matter what, even if Obama adopts what were formerly Republican ideas (individual mandate, cap-and-trade). Maybe Obama is copying Republican ideas on purpose. That way, Republicans will go to the Supreme Court and ask the conservative justices to declare Republican ideas unconstitutional.

    In other words, mittens is attempting to blame the Democrats in MA for his lousy record. Government ISN'T a business, and we don't need a CEO or an MBA (like the previous occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue who nearly destroyed our economy) in the top spot.

    The choice is clear.

    A successfull governor/business leader
    vs
    A failed president/community leader
