What Did You Think of Patrick's DNC Speech?

The Massachusetts governor had delegates on their feet Tuesday night at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, but did his speech resonate with you? Let us know by posting a comment below.

Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick came out firing Tuesday night at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, attacking his predecessor Mitt Romney's record in the Bay State.

"Mitt Romney talkes a lot about all the things he's fixed," he said. "I can tell you that Massachusetts wasn't one of them. He's a fine fellow and a great salesman, but as governor he was more interested in having the job than doing it."

By the end of his speech, which touched on President Barack Obama's first-term accomplishments, the economy, role of government and the American Dream, Patrick had the packed crowd of delegates on their feet and in a frenzy, but we want to know:

How did Patrick's speech play here in Medford? Were you a fan of the governor's remarks? Or did his words fall on deaf ears? Let us know by posting a comment below.

He is a worthless POS that is turning MA into a 3rd world state. All LIES about Romney, who helped unemployment rate go down to a little over 4%, vs over 7% on mini me Obama's watch. Romney ALSO cleaned up the budget to a surplus, and now it's in the toilet again. The only complaints I heard about Romney were from LEFTISTS. Deval's other lies were "more of the same" for this convention. If we did "factcheck" like the Democratic SPONSORED one does ad nauseum...they would have a problem with just about all the garbage he spewed. Pathetic excuse for a Governor, and MA is showing his failure, much like Obama's failure for America...SHOWS

Bruce you are an idiot. Look at the congressional record of what MA was like with Romney - 47th out of 50 states for job development, outsourcing, cutting education. Grow up and actually analysis the data and information available on non partisan sites before you talk.

We need a new governor and a new President....Go Romney. Remember, "hope and change", well change is good!

If what your saying is true about Romney deleting and erasing records that is wrong however show me the proof or was that also deleted and erased. Look we have a current Governor who by his own record, which isn't deleted and erased doing nothing but run up a huge bill which we as taxpayers have to fund. It wouldn't be bad if we were getting some value for our money, but then again this is Massachusetts and we all just complain and keep electing those who are benefiting from it more than us. Our Governor also have made our state a refuge for anyone that is undocumented.

Michelle O'Bama outstanding. Bill Clinton superb. Deval Patrick did a good job. CeCe, were you here in Massachusetts when Romney wrecked the place?
Luciano September 06, 2012 at 05:17 PM
