MA Gov. Patrick on Romney’s Job Growth

Governor Patrick made the claim during his DNC speech on Tuesday that under Romney, “Massachusetts was 47th in job creation.”  However, according to the W. P. Carey School of Business jog growth tracking, Romney’s track record paints a considerably different picture.  In the year prior to Romney coming into office, 2002, MA ranked 50th in the nation for job growth.  In his first year in office, 2003, MA rose to 46th; in 2004 49th; in 2005 46th; and in 2006 31st.

Just a side thought, as the Obama campaign continues to blame our current economic woes on Bush-era policies, using that same ideology we should credit Romney-era policies for the three years following his term in office where MA was 24th in 2007 and 17th in 2008 and 2009.  I’m just saying.
