Romney's actual record as Governor: Neither moderate nor bipartisan

"In Mitt Romney’s 4 years of political experience, he signed 844 vetoes. He was perhaps the most vetoing governor in Massachusetts history. He claimed in the debate with Obama that he was good at working with the opposition party which controlled 87% of the legislature. In reality he was an obstructionist, the embodiment of 'No'.

"Of his 844 vetoes, 707 were overridden.  In cases when the Senate challenged him, Romney was overridden every time. When the House challenged him, Romney was overridden more than 99 percent of time.”
