The Globe’s take on Patrick is now that he’s fuzzy on the issues. Witness Brian McGrory’s piece today in which he accuses us “sandal-wearing, Volvo-driving acolytes from Newton and Lexington” of liking him just for his personality.
I’d direct McGrory to both Patrick’s and Healey’s websites to compare who has the most comprehensive rundowns on the issues. The only thing on the Healey website is her list of 50 ideas–some of them no doubt worth considering, but all propounded with a cursory paragraph or two. Patrick has exenstive commentary on a wide range of issues. He wins the issues battle hands down.
I’d add that when I tried to get the candidates’ positions on issues of concern to my organization, The Massachusetts Coalition of Families and Advocates for the Retarded, Inc. (COFAR), only the Patrick campaign responded to me.
