. . . not to mention myth of bipartisan, education and tax reform leadership:
educators largely credit an overarching reform of state schools 10 years earlier under Governor Weld. The reforms doubled state spending on schools and brought standards and accountability to administrators and students.
Mr. Romney’s claim that he was responsible for 19 separate tax cuts is also technically accurate, but not the full story. In 2005, for example, Mr. Romney’s administration wrote legislation refunding $250 million in capital gains taxes — but the bill came only in response to a court ruling that the taxes had been illegally withheld in 2002.
and by his second year as governor, his relationship with Democratic legislative leaders was so acrimonious, Romney organized and funded a campaign to unseat them. It failed miserably and Republicans lost seats.
