Twelve Red states, 11 of which went Red in 2010, were responsible for almost ¾ of the total public sector job loss in 2011, while sitting on more than $12.5 billion in hoarded state funds. While governors of New Hampshire, Minnesota, Montana, and North Carolina, are all Democrats, the state legislatures are fully Republican controlled. Without these layoffs, economists say, our national unemployment would have been around 7% today. (SOURCE)
So, let us drop our preoccupation with Mr. Romney (and his vagaries), because we clearly won't get anywhere in that regard. He is the ridiculous candidate du jour.
This election, if allowed to play out with open and honest debate about the direction Republicans are taking this nation, should result in a Walter Mondale-style defeat for Mr. Romney, of whom we know nothing with certitude... except for his name... and even that we know isn't real.
UPDATED: 07/19/12 - Here is further proof that the attempt to report the truth behind Governor Romney's past is an exercise in futility. (Although the Los Angeles Times released a well-sourced and damning report about the nascent Bain: here.) In a recent ABC interview, Mrs. Romney confirms, "we've given all people need to know." Well, there you have it.
Move on, "people"... and focus on the policy.
