Romney Bolts Massachusetts....Again
Below is the statement of MDP Chairman Phil Johnston on Mitt Romney's latest excursion.
We’ve become used to Mitt Romney being in Des Moines, Savannah, Miami, New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago, but Baghdad? This is getting ridiculous. The presidential election isn’t for two years but Mitt Romney apparently thinks he’s already a major foreign policy expert.
Kerry Healey needs to tell her boss that there remains serious work to do in the waning months of the Romney-Healey administration: implementation of major health care legislation, dealing with last week’s devastating floods on the North Shore, and making housing more affordable are just a few of the issues that need immediate attention.
This governor has become a major embarrassment to our state. In a trip which is obviously designed to further his own political ambitions, he uses the cynical pretext of visiting Massachusetts troops. He fools no one by this lame explanation. His real purpose is to add foreign policy luster to his résumé.
Romney, like Lieutenant Governor Healey, supports the Bush-Cheney-Rumsfeld position in Iraq, which is costing the lives of many Massachusetts young people and the devastation of our national and local economy.
I thought I had seen everything from this man but apparently his ambition knows no limit.
