There were some good points offered in between those insults, and sadly the attacks too often drowned them out.
Look, I don’t support Deval Patrick. And I think a lot can happen over the next month. Shockingly, since I support another candidate, I think there are real questions about his campaign, his proposed policies, and his chances of winning.
For that, I get called names. It’s frankly nauseating. An attempt to bring in historical comparisons is dismissed as a lengthy sermon.
I don’t understand the rush to ad hominem attacks. You’re leading in the polls!! What else do you want? Fact is, many people are not going to like Deval, and many many more people will not like him if he wins the primary.
And if Patrick wins, people who supported Reilly and Gabrieli will be expected to knock on doors, donate money, organize functions, and hold signs for him. So cut out the personal attacks, please. If you don’t want to read any criticism or questions, avoid them. But cut the flame wars, already. Playground insults only forestall post-primary unity. Given past campaigns, I think it’s pretty clear that we can’t afford this.
