In my last post, I mentioned that the state of Massachusetts was #49 in job creation during Mitt Romney’s term as governor. One of our readers was kind enough to provide some links to published articles and statistics showing just how much worse. Note that these were written over four years ago by Romney’s home-state newspaper, the Boston Globe, not some flamer who only jumped into the fray this year.
In short, Romney’s argument that his business experiences means he knows how to create jobs as a state or national government executive has already been proved wrong. The same is true of most of the Republican economic argument – it has been proved wrong repeatedly from Herbert Hoover on, but they are oblivious to those facts.
