What Did You Think of Massachusetts Gov. Deval 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 Arlington? 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.

Why are the democrats not asking Romney why all his administration's emails were deleted after he left office? It is a major scandal that this happened, and he should be "held accountable" for it.

What, pray tell, did Romney cover up? Surely it would be known by now. Reverend E. Raleigh Pimperton III

His tax returns

So... let us suppose he paid an entirely legal, but lower rate than you. Thanks to class envy you will remain unhappy. You will find other reasons to dislike Romney. Trust me. Reverend E. Raleigh Pimperton III

We already know he pays a lower tax rate than the middle class. We want to know what he's hiding! And, why did he delete all his administration's emails? And, Deval Patrick did an amazing job last night!

The Governor of Massachusetts helped the millionaire *President Of the United States* hide his illegal alien aunt and uncle from public view. His aunt scammed taxpayers for years. His uncle had an illegal license, had at least one OUI accident, and yet was illegally granted a new, "legal" license just weeks later. Aegal US Citizen would be in jail. You have to be completely deluded a d dishonest to justify these facts as a voter. See it.

I think we just discovered who wrote Paul Ryan's RNC speech.

Well... Ryan's speech worked. Obama's poll numbers slide slowly, as Romney gains ground. Question... a record 46 million people are on food stamps thanks to Obama. How many of those will vote to re-elect The Chosen One? Reverend E. Raleigh Pimperton III

Everyone hears what they want to hear from the conventions, the truth is buried somewhere in the middle. By the way, if you don't like the fact that Romney paid paid 13% of his earnings don't yell at him, if he had done something wrong don't you think the IRS would be on him at this point? If you don't like it have the tax laws changed. Execuives who are paid with stock options opposed to salaries are doing it all around the country because that is how the laws work. It is leagal to have off shore bank accounts. Why not a flat tax for all citizens? How about charitable donations? I heard that our current VP donated 2 tenths of 1%. If that is true isn't that discraceful?

A fake Reverend with fake facts. Good luck with that :-)

Gov Patraick should have been home seeing those boys off to Afghanistan.

Deval is a horrible Governor and his speech was horrible as well.
Shannon September 05, 2012 at 06:52 PM
It sure was. It was the perfect comedy show.
Shannon September 05, 2012 at 06:53 PM
Exactly Michelle
Shannon September 05, 2012 at 06:54 PM
Yes he only does that when he is up for election

Deval is an excellent Governor and his speech was excellent as well.
