Tough guys (Former MA gov's comment on Romney)

Clearly, there is not much left of the good-old-boy network when it comes to former governors of Massachusetts.

This was made abundantly clear before, during and after the Democratic Party Convention, when Gov. Deval Patrick, who followed Mitt Romney in the governor's office, and former Gov. Michael Dukakis, who preceded him, went after the GOP presidential nominee with a vengeance.

Patrick hit him high and Dukakis hit him low. If this were a Sunday NFL game, the referee would have called the two Democrats for unnecessary roughness -- piling on.

Dukakis was and is particularly tough on Romney. He has called him "a bust" and "a disaster" as governor, the worst governor Massachusetts ever had, while praising Deval Patrick as something of a superhero.

Dukakis' bitter attitude toward Romney is understandable. Dukakis was defeated for president in 1988 by Vice President George H. W. Bush after blowing a 17-point lead. Now he is witnessing the possibility of another Massachusetts governor, a Republican no less, succeeding where he failed.

When your attackers are drooling idiot communists and racists that held the job before and after Mitt... and they dislike mitt... then he must have done something right a few times while governor... and even one positive is more that either patrick or ducaca ever had.
