Not much of a record to run on, is it? In fact, Romney is so desperate to sweep his Massachusetts record under the rug, last week he sent staffers to disrupt an Obama campaign press conference. They blew bubbles and horns to distract attention from Gov. Romney's Massachusetts record.
Here's a vivid illustration of just how badly Mitt Romney wants to avoid any discussion of his record as governor of Massachusetts: he sent his campaign aides to shout down speakers at a press conference organized by the Obama campaign to discuss Romney's governorship. Romney aides and supporters repeatedly shouted, screamed, and even blew bubbles and vuvezelas in an effort to disrupt the press conference, which was held in Boston.
Obama campaign senior strategist David Axelrod, who was the featured speaker at the event, told the Romney aides that their efforts to drown out discussion of Mitt Romney's record as governor would not succeed. "You can shout down speakers," he said. "But it's hard to Etch A Sketch the truth away."
Blowing bubbles at a press conference? That should play well with the older, blue collar crowd.
