Malloy Prepares for Convention Speech

Malloy addresses the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday evening.


Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy is preparing to address the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., on Wednesday. In the meantime, he’s been making the media rounds and taking partisan shots as Democrats ready for their moment in the spotlight.

"It's a short speech, but it's not going to be about me,'' Malloy told the Associated Press, referencing N.J. Governor Chris Christie. "I'm not like other governors. I'm not showing up to give a speech about myself. That was rampant at the Republican convention.''

Malloy and Christie have sparred in the past through the media.

On MSNBC’s Morning Joe program, Malloy called the Republican National Convention a “ tea party convention that they invited a few Republicans to.”

“It was the me, me, me convention, and I think it’s going to be different here,” Malloy said, according to Politico. “This is our chance to make it very clear why our candidate is very different than Mitt Romney.”

Malloy is scheduled to go on stage at 6 p.m.

most important poll numbers (in my humble opinion): in 2008, obama won "young" voters (not sure of the exact age range, 18-25, maybe 18-29, but you get the idea) by over 30%. recent polls now put obama in the lead by about 8% among young voters. in other words, as you get older and wiser, you leave the democrats and their pie in the sky liberalism behind and enter the real world.

Of course it will be short.... What does he have to talk about? Raising taxes, High unemployment, raised CT gov spending, low approval rating, High gas price do to excessive taxes and so on. I'm surprised they would want him to speak at the convention.

The Romneys and Ryans embody traditional American values, but beyond that--the stark differences in the values and Principles of the D & R parties are brilliantly highlighted by the obvious old-fashioned goodness and patriotism omnipresent at the GOP convention last week. That is in vivid contrast to DEM speaker (and HHS Sec.) K. Sebelius' comments about "motherhood as a liability" and womanhood as a "pre-existing condition." The DNC "abortion fest" is revealing, to Americans paying attention, exactly why "GOD" was taken out, this year, of the Democratic platform!! Shameful. Here are a few highlights from former Dem Artur Davis' riveting speech endorsing Mitt Romney at the GOP Convention last week (in 2008 he seconded Obama's nomination): ..."We have a country to turn around. This week you will nominate the most experienced executive 
to seek the presidency in 60 years in Mitt Romney. "He has no illusions about what makes America great, and he doesn’t confuse the presidency with 
celebrity, or loftiness with leadership."... ..."America is a land of second chances, and I gather you have room for the estimated 6 
million of us who know we got it wrong in 2008 and who want to fix it. "Maybe we should have known that night in Denver that things that begin with plywood Greek
 columns and artificial smoke typically don’t end well."... www.youtube.com/user/gopconvention2012/videos

So I was only kidding the first time when I wondered if this was part of Romney's 12 million jobs...but now? Seriously Patch is condoning the spamming of multiple boards, multiple topics with the same messages? On the plus side, at least Mittens is spreading his money around the US for a change.
