Veryvila, that is a flat out lie. Romney served his full four year term before deciding to run for President in 2008.

The Anti-Alinsky - Willard, technically, did finish his term as Governor of MA; one could hardly say he took his job seriously or actually spent much time in MA…he really spent most of his time positioning himself for a presidential run in 2008... “During Mr. Romney’s four-year term as governor of Massachusetts, he cumulatively spent more than a year — part or all of 417 days — out of the state, according to a review of his schedule and other records. More than 70 percent of that time was spent on personal or political trips unrelated to his job, a New York Times analysis found. During his last year as governor, he was largely an absentee chief executive. In October 2006, for example, he was out of the state all or part of 25 days. His public schedules said he was spending “personal time in Utah” or “attending political events” in California, Colorado, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, Texas and Wisconsin. He went to a fund-raiser on Oct. 6 in Georgia for the Republican candidate for lieutenant governor, stumped on Oct. 12 for a candidate for governor in Pennsylvania and appeared on Oct. 31 in Idaho on behalf of another candidate. In December, his last month in office, he took a swing through Asia before vacationing in Utah. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/14/us/politics/mitt-romney-often-away-when-he-was-governor.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0 http://thinkprogress.org/economy/2012/06/04/494282/5-facts-about-the-massachusetts-economy-under-mitt-romney/?mobile=nc

I expected an answer from Comrade John or one of the other extreme Leftists on this blog. First the lie, then the spin trying to justify the lie. A Governor is elected to run the state. There is no time requirement involved, and, very often they go out of state for various reasons, to promote the state, attend conferences, or heaven forbid, take a vacation. You try to jump all over his record, but the fact remains, Romney closed a huge budget gap, kept Massachusetts schools at the top of the education list, and had a great economy. Spin that Comrade John!

The Anti-Alinsky – Willard was born with an extreme sense of entitlement – shades of GWB & Walker here – and everything he did was only to increase his own personal sense of entitlement and public exposure. Whether that was trolling Paris during the Vietnam War looking for converts to the Mormon faith, he being the personal representative of GOD and all, networking to become a Bishop in the Mormon faith, obtaining Bain, with no personal or financial risk to him involved, and ruling that with an iron fist. His tenure at the Olympics was just another opportunity to raise his profile, network and create financial contracts that he refuses to divulge even today. The governorship of MA was nothing more than a strategic opportunity for him to further position himself in the political limelight so he could run for the presidency. Willard has always been only about Willard. MA has a balanced budget directive built into its constitution, so that had to happen; however, the Democratic Legislature was more responsible for that accomplishment than Willard was, as they routinely overrode his asinine vetoes. Today, MA has no love for Willard, and they had none when he departed the governorship either, leaving the state $1.2 Billion in debt… By any reasonable and rational standard Willard is nothing more than a very selfish, self-serving, psychopathic personality seeking the ultimate power at any cost to those around him. The good news is: That ends today or early tomorrow!

So Comrade John no longer provides and answer, he just jumps gears to another outlandish claim.
