Patrick Takes Aim at Romney At DNC
The current governor of Massachusetts has little good to say about his predecessor in that office, Mitt Romney.
Deval Patrick, the Democrat who took over from Romney in 2007, tells the Democratic National Conventionthat while Romney is a fine fellow and a great salesman, as governor he was more interested in having the job than doing it.
Patrick, a good friend of President Barack Obama, says that by the time Romney left office, the state was 47th in the nation in job creation and household income was declining. Patrick says Romney cut education spending and left the state with crumbling roads and higher business taxes.
Romney talks about all the things he has fixed, Patrick told the crowd, but he said Massachusetts was not one of them.
