I have to give major props to a twitter great @MittRmoney and the group 140 Elect for this list. Because the most effective tools against this candidate are the facts! Here are a few gems.
•Mitt Romney left Massachusetts with a 39% approval rating and 47th out of 50 states in job creation •OneTermGovernor Mitt Romney left MA with 24% higher spending, $501 million in new “fees”, and the highest debt per capita in the country.
•Mitt Romney’s records as Governor are gone. He ordered staff to destroy computer drives after buying them for $100,000.
•Mitt Romney protested in favor of the Vietnam draft then lived in a French palace during the war.
•“One of the ways my sons are showing support for our nation is helping me get elected.” Romney on sons’ military service
•52% of Republicans believe the war in Afghanistan is not worth fighting. @MittRomney is not one of them.
•President @BarackObama leads Mitt Romney in his home state of Massachusetts by over 21%.
•Mitt Romney: “Don’t try to stop the foreclosure process. Let it run its course and hit the bottom”
