Gubernatorial front-runner Mitt Romney refused to release his income tax returns.Good for you Mitt. As you say, it's not a requirement. We already admire you for getting into the race to help rescue the state.
We know you have big bucks. We don't need to know the details.

''I don't have any particular problem with there being legalized gambling in the commonwealth, because we already have it.''Smart talk. Why should Connecticut get all that extra tax revenue?

Romney brought much-needed leadership to the Games. He raised morale, unified the effort and made hard decisions, cutting the budget by 13 percent. He was effective. Clearly this man is unsuited for Massachusetts politics.This is sarcasm.

The state's Republican Party endorsed Mitt Romney's bid for governor Saturday but rejected the Salt Lake City Olympic chief's choice for lieutenant governor.OK, now I can vote in the Republican primary for Romney/Rappaport.

Romney said Healey would not only make a successful lieutenant governor, but some day perhaps a governor. He said she was not picked because he needed a woman to balance the ticket, but for her qualifications in public policy.Hmm... I see.

Kerry Murphy Healey is Mitt Romney's idea of making up for what voters believed Jane Swift lacked: experience. He's promoting a woman whose only political experience was losing two state rep races in the aforementioned Beverly.This pick does not excite me.

Republicans are understandably ecstatic over Mitt Romney's candidacy, convinced that he will protect the governor's office from falling into Democratic hands.
