Frank joked that Romney, who served as governor of Frank’s home state of Massachusetts, was portraying himself as a “superhero of job creation” and a “wizard of private-sector financial engineering.”
“What we should have had as governor was Myth Romney. Myth Romney is a wonderful private-sector executive” who successfully harnessed his skills to foster job growth in Massachusetts, Frank said.
“We would have seen that in Massachusetts, [but] in fact the record is that during his term our job growth was only about 1.4 percent, which was a quarter of the national average,” Frank said, adding that the state ranked 47th in job growth nationally.
“I wish Myth Romney had been governor of the state I lived in,” said Frank. “But we had Mitt Romney.”
