Romney Tough-Guy Sheen Loses Shine

Remember when Willard Mitt was so tough on crime that he said he supported the death penalty? He said that anyone who disagreed with his position was ‘out of step’ with the voters. (source: Boston Globe, 10/29/2002)

Well, the Commonwealth’s Fraud Tough Guy now claims that if the legislature does not pony up $11 million in additional spending, the Department of Youth Services will eliminate 85 beds, and ‘early release’ juvie offenders into the general population. (source: Boston Globe, 9/3/2003) Romney sounds less like Buford Pusser and more like Sheriff Bart in Blazing Saddles. “Nobody moves or the public gets it!”

So much for being tough on crime.

Romney's 'spend more or pay' policy is coming just weeks after he told the Legislature that they were spending too much money. No wonder the Mass. Taxpayers Foundation is calling Romney 'confused', saying the Fraud Governor is sending "a mixed message (by) urging additional spending (while) arguing that the budget is out of balance." (source: Boston Globe, 9/3/2003)

So much for being tough on spending.

Remember when Willard Mitt was so tough on Bill Bulger having a mobbed-up brother that he told Bulger to resign his position in state government? He said that Bulger’s “leadership has not been the nature of leadership I would expect from a university president." (source: Boston Herald, 6/7/2003)

Well it appears that Romney's appointment to head the Civil Service Commision, Bill "Run-Mitt-Run" Monahan, is an (allegedly) mobbed up businessman. (source: Boston Globe, 8/29/2003) Wonder who conducted the background check on Run-Mitt Monahan?

So much for being tough on the mob.

Not exactly the nature of leadership we expect from the Governor's office.
