Gov. Malloy Prepares for Convention Speech

Malloy addresses the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday evening.

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 New Jersey 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.''

The two governors have sparred in the past through the media. Malloy is scheduled to go on stage at 6 p.m.

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 boasts: "I'm not like other governors. I'm not showing up to give a speech about myself" Good Idea Dannel, because if you got nothing good to say about someone (yourself in this case) you shouldn't say anything......... With any luck soon you and Barack can console one another on Resume formats.

The food stamp governor and the food stamp president. They punish the responsible people with ridiculously high taxes and reward the lazy irresponsible people with all sorts of government handouts. 46.7 million Americans on food stamps? What! You guys need to stop rewarding bad behavior and punish the behavior. I've had it with both of them. Romney 2012.

Stop punishing good behavior that is. And pull the plug on that stupid new Britain to Hartford bus line aka the ghetto express because the producers of this state don't want to pay for it.

just heard the governor repeat the Democratic mantra for the week - "we ARE better off now than we were 4 years ago!". Must be having a flashback from his youth. He also boasted that he had created 23,500 jobs in CT, replacing half of what was lost through the Bush recession. But he never mentioned how many MORE jobs CT has lost because of Obama's recession. But that's typical I guess

Maybe he should be here in CT working. Where do we find these people?
