It appears Romney's record as governor is worse than Jimmy Carter's as a governor. Do you agree that Obama should debate Romney's issues as governor?

Romney was Governor of Massachusetts BEFORE our Great Recession, from 2003 to 2007.
Therefore, let's see how he treated the citizens of Massachusetts while their Governor, to give us insight into how he would do as YOUR President.
You can jump in here and complain all you want. But first I will launch into an editorial of how I have viewed the facts...then you can rebuttal.
As Governor, Romney:
* Slashed the state's education budget by $277 million, and raised tuition rates by an average $4,000 a year...pushing college education beyond the middle class's ability to pay. Remember, this was BEFORE a recession.
* Romney RAISED taxes on the middle class, but not the RICH.
* Romney RAISED the state's DEFICIT 16%.
This is in direct conflict with a willingness to raise the right taxes...so the deficit does not GROW. It also makes him a hypocrite complaining about Obama's deficit...after a RECESSION.
* Romney laid off state help line operators (mostly women), and exported the state jobs to Red China.
Massachusetts is NOT Walmart. This is a government entity basically volunteering PRIVATE citizen's records (and concerns) to be held and analyzed by a potential enemy! China has ZERO respect for American’s ID security or Constitutional Rights. It is not military secrets, but a soldier mom could accidentally, or an officer could accidentally, divulge troop locations or ships in port.
No matter HOW you slice it - this is GIVING intelligence to a potential enemy WITHOUT clearing it with the FEDERAL state department. More PERSONAL business is discussed over STATE lines than would be with a department store, for instance. I know the GOP have been protecting Romney over this...but it could end his presidential bid once voters figure it out, or it is re investigated.
That is worse than GAY marriage...because the above is something CONCRETE and not hypothetical;.
