  •  This is was 2006 Gubenartorial Debate. (0+ / 0-)

    It was with Deval Patrick(D), Christy Mihos(I) and Kerry Healy(R).

    By this point in time, Mitt Romney (our Governor - in name only) was busy traveling around the country preparing/running for the 2008 GOP nomination.

    At almost every campaign event he regularly disparaged Massachusetts, beyond what could be considered self-deprecating humour.

    Here is my post from October 2012, with another clip.

      So GOP nominee Kerry Healey, Romney's Lt. Gov., was asked at the debate if she'd pass on to Romney that people weren't feeling his constant bashing of Massachusetts for cheap political points with conservative audiences out of state.

      And she demurred, something like "Oh, I'm sure he's already gotten the message." Crowd didn't like it and Mihos said "then you don't love Massachusetts" if you'll just let that stand.

      Republicans...think the American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire the Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it. Harry S. Truman
