Gov. Malloy Prepares for Convention Speech

Malloy addresses the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday evening.

Governor Dannel P. 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 N.J. 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.”

The DNC "abortion fest" starts today, which is going to reveal to Americans paying attention the obvious differences in the values and Principles of the two major parties. The GOP convention featured dozens of exciting speakers of all ethnicities, backgrounds, and superb accomplishments! Especially the women, such as NM governors Susana Martinez, Mary Fallin and Nikki Haley, Condoleezza Rice, Senator Kelly Ayotte, and congressional candidate Mia Love, whose parents immigrated from Haiti, and who graduated from the Univ. of Hartford and is now a mayor in Utah (as well as mother of 3 children)! Here is a link to her rousing and patriotic 5 min. speech last week, challenging Obama that "Mr. President, the American people are awake; and we're not buying what you are selling!": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lfop5TeDnZo&feature=plcp http://www.youtube.com/user/gopconvention2012/videos (links to all other speeches and other events)

Democrats are in deep trouble - the start of their convention sounded more like an abortion rally than a Presidential National Convention. It was embarrassing.

Romney is exactly right, that the DEM convention is a "Celebration of Failure"! The 2008 enthusiasm for "the one" has to a great extent evaporated, so much so that they could not fill the B of A stadium for his speech tomorrow. The Dems could not face the embarrassment of all the empty thousands of seats, so they have moved it to a smaller venue (20,000 seats) with a specious excuse of possible thunder storms. HAH!! Michelle is going to lose her home in the WH, because most women know they are more than a uterus. DT, did you catch the great speech last week by Artur Davis, who in 2008 seconded Obama's nomination? "We have a country to turn around. This week you will nominate the most experienced executive 
to seek the presidency in 60 years in Mitt Romney. "He has no illusions about what makes America great, and he doesn’t confuse the presidency with 
celebrity, or loftiness with leadership."... ..."America is a land of second chances, and I gather you have room for the estimated 6 
million of us who know we got it wrong in 2008 and who want to fix it. "Maybe we should have known that night in Denver that things that begin with plywood Greek
 columns and artificial smoke typically don’t end well."... "John F. Kennedy asked us what we could do for America. This Democratic Party asks what can 
government give you. Don’t worry about paying the bill, it’s on your kids and grandkids."... www.youtube.com/user/gopconvention2012/videos
