Letter: Romney’s record shows he isn’t presidential

(Continued)

During the last debate he made a point of mentioning how well Massachusetts students did in national testing. That was true but he had nothing to do with it. The programs to help students achieve were put into place before he took office.

While governor he cut the budgets so steeply that state agencies could not perform in an efficient manner. The infrastructure deteriorated to a point that trucks were falling through overpasses, roads and bridges became a major problem, MDC pools were shut down, state parks were closed and left to decay, and roads were poorly plowed.

Economists all claim his budget numbers do not add up, he insists they will but will not tell us how he plans to make it happen. This is another reason why we do not know Gov. Romney.

Romney supporters should take the time to consider the two candidates on their own merits and not base their decision on their dislike of President Obama and a hope that Gov. Romney will be better.

As the old sayings go: You are better off with the devil you know than the devil you don’t. Let’s not change horses in the middle of the stream.
