Governor Patrick on The Daily Show

by at 9:27 am.

Governor Deval Patrick was on last night’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. He got a chance to brag about our state (like I love to do!), and of course, to hawk his new book, A Reason to Believe: Lessons from an Improbable Life.

    I watched this last night and this exchange reaffirmed the reasons I love this Gov. and this show.

    I like Deval Patrick. I think he’s done a very good job in difficult times. But I’m still a bit nervous about him.

    Ever since the the primary campaign, I’ve been wanting to see Deval Patrick haul off and kick somebody’s @ss. Just I knew he’s got it in him.

    Like Obama did yesterday with Paul Ryan’s plan. Use the chair! Hit him with the chair, Deval!

    Still waiting.

    I prefer Deval’s way of governing to Obama’s - Obama talks big then gives in to the conservatives, whatever they want, with a few notable exceptions. Deval gets stopped by politics in the legislature on any number of reforms (transit, ethics, pensions, etc) and manages to wrestle pretty decent bills from them.

    Making a partisan speech, vs actually standing up for your principles…I know which one I prefer. You might make the argument that it’s easier in MA to enact progressivism, but we have our share of DINOs, insider GOBs, and the like, and getting through the bills Patrick has without them getting watered down all that much is a pretty huge accomplishment.
