ROMNEY THE LIAR SLAMS OBAMA FOR ECONOMIC GROWTH ***HIGHER*** THAN MASSACHUSETTS HAD WHEN ROMNEY WAS GOVERNOR
That Willard. Isn't he a funny guy? And multitalented, too--liar, fraud,
hypocrite, coward, human chameleon. I mean, his repertoire is VAST. Now
he is attacking Obama because the 2% rise in GDP in the last quarter
was supposedly weak. Here is the growth rate record from Willard's time
as Massachusetts governor:
According to data from the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Economic
Analysis, average real GDP growth was 1.5 percent per year in
Massachusetts from 2002 to 2006. For each of the years Romney was in
office, the economy grew 1.49 percent, 1.86 percent, 1.14 percent and
1.43 percent, respectively.
And how did Romney assess the economic growth of the state under his
leadership? “When we took office, the state economy was in a tailspin.
Today, jobs are being created by the thousands and our economy is
stronger,” he said in early 2006, his last year in office. So less than 2
percent was good then, but 2 percent is bad now.
And one could argue that Romney had an easier task than Obama. During
Romney’s tenure in the governor’s mansion, the national economy grew at a
much fast clip than Massachusetts’, staying comfortably above 2 percent
every year. National GDP even broke 3 percent one year and doubled the
state’s growth another year. On the campaign trail in 2002, Romney
promised jobs creation “second to none in the history of the state.”
After four years, the state had added 31,000 jobs — a growth rate of
less than 1 percent while the country as a whole added 5 percent more
