What Romney Wouldn't Say

What Romney Wouldn't Say | Mormonism | Scoop.it

During his long pursuit of the presidency, three M-words rarely passed Mitt Romney’s lips: Massachusetts, Mandate, and Mormonism. This first two silent M’s were, at least politically, understandable; the third perhaps less so.

 

Instead of uttering the word Massachusetts, Romney typically referred to “my state,” as in, “My state had the best . . . ,” or, “In my state, we . . .” On the face of it, this is a curious construction. If you’ve been governor of a state, why wouldn’t you be proud of that?

This was very likely a carry-over from the primaries, where red-state voters generally took a dim view of Massachusetts as a bastion of liberalism. Romney was, to say the least, reticent about his tenure as Massachusetts governor; according to published reports, aides went to extraordinary lengths to erase computer hard drives and sequester other documents when Romney left the office of governor of Massachusetts.

 

The second missing “M” was mandate, as in the employer mandate in the Massachusetts health-care law, the legislation crafted by Romney and the state’s Democratic legislature to expand health insurance to virtually all residents of the commonwealth (the percentage of those now covered is well into the 90s). This is virtually the same mandate that Romney criticized in Obamacare.
