One of the refreshing aspects of Mitt Romney’s recent resurgence has been his willingness to express pride in Massachusetts. He’s accepted ownership of the state’s health plan, and, in the first presidential debate, touted the success of the state’s students. Education reform has been a triumph for Massachusetts. And in keeping with the old saying that success has a million fathers while failure is an orphan, Romney deserves some credit as well.
“Massachusetts schools are ranked number one in the nation,” he said in the debate. “This is not because I didn’t have commitment to education. It’s because I care about education for all of our kids.’’
