This Romney? “Cut taxes”, AKA lower revenue, Romney?
He was not going to be balancing anything anytime soon. His earlier promises of how fast the deficit was going to drop were inline with CBO already current predictions . Towards the end of the campaign he was then pushing out the window of deficit reduction even further!
Hey, I bought that line! I thought he might have some executive skills. Turns out Mr. Business could not manage himself out of a wet paper bag.was a far better alternative because he had business experience and had spent much of his career turning distressed companies around, and no one can make the claim that the US is not distressed.
Ok, so cronyism was an issue.. Still, not getting the job done running a campaign? That is a piss-poor option for someone to run the Executive Branch of the country.
Maybe he had some skills in the past. Maybe it wasn’t largely due to connections via lineage. But whatever he had appears to have seriously waned.
…by vetoing the crap out stuff the Legislature sent his way, relying on the Legislature to then Super Majority overrule him, and having the fortune of the country’s economy cycling up underneath him.He also demonstrated as Governor that he could get spending under control and work with the opposition.
But so he had that, except he was running as hard as he could away from it.
