He won't get my vote. Nobody who is unwilling to take a hard stand against illegal immigration will.

In state tuition for illegal immigrants? Ya, right.

Like I haven't paid into the state coffers for all these years, and now struggle to pay an instate tution bill for one daughter!!

I really loved the debates....with Reilly saying he has 17 years of protecting the citizens of the Commonwealth, but he's never arrested or even detained an illegal immigrant. It was the comic relief of the debates.

That's right, Vote for Deval the illegal aliens pal! People just can't seem to get it in their head that we are a California in the making-by the way on October 7th various states are going to be protesting ILLEGAL ALIENS-that's right,so I myself would like to know why I have yet to hear of it in the news?

Still looking-hard, but I will find a web that was mentioned on a Calif forum regarding states involved in this protest.

I hate to "copy and paste" but I just had to show this search on his site. Guess he won't even address the issue.

The source is the official (v)ideo (a)udio (b)log for the Deval Patrick Campaign. It is your place for reaction and commentary from Deval and people just like you.Search Results

He won't get my vote either for all of the stated reasons above. I'm with you all on this one but I fear that Deval will win as he will have the homosexual vote and the black vote here in Massachusetts. I thought Kennedy and Kerry were bad enough but now this? Massachusetts is such a laughing stock and we'll be completely sunk if he wins the election. Time to start looking for another place to live......:(

I feel the same way, Hybrid. And you know, it really is true that his ads are nothing but whining about "negative campaigning."

This morning one of his ads was on and after it was over I looked at my daughter and said "Tell me what you think Patrick Deval stands for."

She shrugged her shoulders and said 'I don't know.'

I said "of course you don't, he hasn't told you. He's just told you he doesn't like Healey's ad and that he wants to "bring people together". He didn't tell you what he believes."

But you know what? There are idiots out there who will vote for him anyhow because he hasn't opened his mouth long enough to shoot himself in the foot. You have to do some homework to find out what he stands for...which is giving illegal immigrants licenses, putting them in college for in-state tuition rates, and raising taxes.

Thanks, but I'll pass on all those things.

They said on the news that he's running a "grass roots" campaign, which I guess they use as a name for "meet and greet"....I say we wage a "grass roots campaign" by telling everyone we know what he REALLY stands for.

Bring us all together? I think what he really means is "socialist state"'ve got money in your bank account? Well, be prepared to lose it while we pay for tuition for illegals, health care for all, and government housing for illegals, too.

Kerry Healy ought to be hitting those talking points....

Excellent post, Observer!
I was born and grew up in Mass and now I am ashamed to admit I live here. Between the homosexual fringe groups that will practice violence if you don't buy there crap on marriage and the illegal problem here, this state is headed fast toward gutterville. Deval is pinning his hopes on the fact that Republicans have pissed everyone off so much, they'll vote for anyone as long as they are not Republican. I am not crazy about either party right now but the Dems have totally screwed this state up. I better go and buy an extra large mattress to stuff my money into because it'll be safer there than in the bank with Deval in charge.:(

I wish I had a better handle on how to push this out to those who have a vote to cast....anyone with any ideas on this?

The only reason this guy will win is very simple:

'He is a Democrat & black. He looks good on camera and just like Clinton, speaks well without saying anything of substance.'

Show us all what kind of people live in this state.

Has anyone else besides me noticed that when Deval Patrick speaks, there is a tone of patronization in his voice? Like he is smarter than us and we can't possibly understand what he's saying?

Friend of Bills: Strike one
Moved here to run for governor: Strike two
In bed with illegal aliens: Strike three.

He's out....le'ts make sure we vote that way...

I am a centrist who believes in abortion rights for women and as well, believes strongly in the separation between church and state. Moreover, I feel that the Federal level Republicans are more than likely leaning too far right with their sucking up to the oil lobby and Bible thumping Christian groups.

Deval Patrick on the other hand represents to me at least all that is wrong with the MOVEON.ORG ultra-left leaning Democratic party. Just because he is a black man who speaks well for himself just does not cut it for me. His stance on crime illegal immigrants just turns me off, and I will more than likely vote for Kerry Healey. Hopefully the electorate will wake up on that day in November and finally realize that Deval Patrick stands for nothing but left leaning, ultra liberalism that will turn back the clock to the sad days of the Dukakis Administration. Deval Patrick is no ordinary leader because he is NO LEADER at all.

Fabulous fabulous fabulous. I'm so happy I'm no longer affiliated with the Democrats. This man has a serious character flaw. It's been said many times that he say little of substance and that which does spew forth from his mouth goes against my core principles. Kerry Healy all the way!
