    Does Mitt Romney's record as Governor of Massachusetts make him worthy of being President today?

    What is Mitt Romney's record as Governor of Massachusetts? Why does this qualify or disqualify him from becoming President?

    We can't really say....he had his records destroyed, as he did his Olympics records, as he won't release his tax returns. He's the invisible man.
    I'll tell you what I remember, having lived here:
    Higher cost of living. Fee Fee.
    Cuts to poor kids healthcare.
    Bonus to police--Quinn Bill.
    There was a great quote once by Christy Mihos.....something about the R's complaining about Dem cronyism, and expecting to ride in like the white knight...and doing the same things, only worse!
    He bragged about not taking a salary--but created a job for his friend, and gave him the money!
    One thing I give him kudos on is firing the man in charge of the big dig oversight. A woman was killed by falling concrete.
    He also took on the transportation authority...which was full of corruption.
    But he only did it because they were Dems at the head, IMO.
    Because he is/was a full-on supporter of Bush/Cheney/Netanyahu.....the PNAC neo-con cabal.
    How can you really care about corruption when you ignore something so big?

      I would think his Mass. record as governor would be public as it would have been publicized in newspapers.  Research could likely turn up records of his actions.  He can't have destroyed the records in newspapers archives.

      He didn't even live here when he wanted the position.And he filed tax returns in 2 states.But he lied his way out of that-just as he lies now.His charater is sleazy and shady,imo. As my friend says, he rubs a penny so hard, it makes Lincoln cry.

    He can't be any worse than a 1 term Communist senator.

      So exactly the same circles (two generations later) who before brought up Zionism, Nazism and communism are now working to install global fascism.

    He is as qualified as the incumbent - what that is saying exactly, I'm not sure.

      I do think it would help Romney a lot if he released his tax returns. As long as we don't know whats in them, the Obama Team can choose for many people how to interpret his tax returns.

      In the 2008 election,  Obama did not release his records from Columbia and Harvard.Why hasn't he released those  records, the people should know everthing about a candidate running to be the president. Obama's records for Romney's tax returns,fair!

    For those who believe a community organizer with no experience in anything but running for office is qualified to be a president, and if qualification by experience is the criterion, Romney is the choice hands down.

    I would say no, but I would also answer the same to a similar question for our current President and our former President. I guess that begs the following question. What exactly DOES make a person worthy of being President?

      The USC's few qualifications aside, the short but complete answer is, "Getting elected." We can only hope it's done by means fair not foul. That has not always been the case. It likely will not be from time to time in the future.

      I guess the qualities people look for in electing a new President vary from person to person. Though I have to agree with Attikos on this one, getting elected is a qualification.
