Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick speaks during day one of the Democratic National Convention at Time Warner Cable Arena on Tuesday, (September 4) in Charlotte, North Carolina.
In his inspiring and rousing speech, the Governor spoke on Mitt Romeny’s horrible track record with his state and about not letting President Obama be bullied out of the White House. Read a snippet below or you can watch the full video:
“In Massachusetts, we know Mitt Romney. By the time he left office, Massachusetts was 47th in the nation in job creation—during better economic times—and household income in our state was declining. He cut education deeper than anywhere else in America. Roads and bridges were crumbling. Business taxes were up, and business confidence was down. Our clean energy potential was stalled. And we had a structural budget deficit. Mitt Romney talks a lot about all the things he’s fixed. 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.” [ FULL SPEECH TRANSCRIPT ]
