Boy I disagree with that! "Miracle of Massachusetts"???
Romney hasn't done too bad given he has no ability to do
anything that the nearly fully Democratic legislature
I can't believe MA has had Republican governors all this time
since Dukakis! A fully Democratic federal delegation of
Senators and Reps and I think about 27 or 29 Republicans in
a 200+ member legislature. Why Republican governors???
Now there won't be a Republican governor to blame for
everything that goes wrong. The legislature may want
He can't win the Prez though. Just what the nation isn't too
inclined to accept: yet another Presidential candidate from
He hasn't done a damn thing! He didn't move on the Big Dig until the
friggin' roof fell and killed that girl.
He has been out of state more than he has been here. I guess that would
explain why he has done nothing.
Look at the beating his Lt. Gov. took in her race for gov.. She couldn't get
away from him quick enough.
He tried to get rid of the head of the Big Dig at least twice
earlier. Both times over-ruled by the legislature.
It took the roof collapse and the death of someone before the
legislature finally agreed to dump him (after a nice payoff
of course). All the various Massachusetts "authorities"
and "commissions" (Lottery Commission, Port Authority, Turnpike
Authority, etc.) are independent of the governor. The
legislature has to agree to fire someone in those positions,
and they wouldn't.
Well sure, he's running for President.
He could have run for the governorship again and had it to fall
back on if he didn't get the presidency. Dukakis did the same thing
and he was a non-Governor for longer time I'd say.
At least Romney has given up the governorship to run for
President rather than running for both. You don't think Hillary
*really* intends to be NY Senator for another 6 years do you?
It's rare to non-existent for a pol in an existing job to *resign*
to run for something else. Kerry ran for President only a couple
years into his current senate term. He wasn't around the state
much then, and here in Western Mass, we rarely see any MA governor
or Senator outside of an election period.
Yet most pundits were saying if he stood for re-election, he
probably would have won! I think he would have too.
It's rather annoying to only have politicians interested
in an entire area during election time, only to forget
the area even exists once in office out in Boston.
Boston area inhabitants have a long history of thinking
there is nothing worthwhile in the state farther west of
I-95/128. It's nothing new, but too bad that our state
political leaders seem to feel pretty much the same way.
I'm in favor of succession!
