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 Stoneham? 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 was and is, a typical democratic politician who tells you what you want to hear! Being a transplant, especially from Chicago, speaks volumes about who he truly is!

I loved it when he said, "My message is this — it is time for Democrats to grow a backbone and stand up for what we believe." I believe the government should directly invest in infrastructure & education to create jobs & opportunity for all, instead of doubling down on trickle down, because frankly I'm tired of being trickled on.

It remains easy to identify the 'net recipients' of government largesse versus the earners/taxpayers.
