Mitt Romney: Annoying the crap out of me since 2003

Here in Boston, we don’t get too many presidential campaign ads — Massachusetts isn’t worth spending money on as it’s already guaranteed to vote for whoever the Democratic nominee is regardless of who campaigns here, it only has 12 electoral votes, and it is one of two dozen states to hold its primary on Super Tuesday. We do, however, get some spillover New Hampshire ads because of the way station coverage overlaps, and I find them endlessly fascinating, both for their novelty and for how clear it often is that Bostonians are not among their target audience.  

A new one features my very own despised former governor reciting the words, “No one votes for yesterday! We vote for tomorrow.” Translation: “Don’t look at my record! It’s irrelevant to how I will behave in office!” Which, in Mitt’s case, may actually be true.
