Romney poured buckets of money into slick ads—like the one in which
he wore neatly pressed jeans and pretended to do blue-collar jobs like
pitching hay for cows, unloading a fishing boat, and hauling garbage.
He was good looking, he pretended to be a moderate, some people felt a
little sorry for him after he claimed the Democrats weren’t being
fair to him and, after all, the state has a history of electing
Every Republican governor in MA before him ran for at least two terms.
Romney did not seek re-election in 2006. After all, now he could say
that he had served as governor, so we had served his purpose. When
asked, he said was he had fulfilled his objectives (like, using us as
a platform for a run as president). By November 2006 (two months
before he left office), his approval rating in our state stood at 34
percent—that is, 48th out of all U.S. governors.
We, as Massachusetts citizens, know that he’ll say and do
whatever he thinks will get him what he wants. I beg of all those who
read this—please don’t give him your vote.
