Mitt Romney Was an Absentee Governor, Just Like Ours

Chris Christie has been an enthusiastic support of Mitt Romney since before Christie even decided not to run himself, and now we know why.


During Mr. Romney's four-year term as governor of Massachusetts, he cumulatively spent more than a year -- part or all of 417 days -- out of the state, according to a review of his schedule and other records. More than 70 percent of that time was spent on personal or political trips unrelated to his job.

Mr. Romney, now the Republican presidential nominee, took lengthy vacations and weekend getaways. But much of his travel was to lay the groundwork for the presidential ambitions he would pursue in the 2008 election, two years after leaving office.

Hmmmm.  A governor who spends a lot of time out of state, laying the groundwork for a presidential run.  Hmmmmmm.
