The Republicans must be aggravated that a short black man can be so politically destructive. It must shatter the constructs that many have in their head. Patrick’s speech had very little rhetoric, which I like. He was strong and feisty and attacked. He called on Democrats to stop being such wimps. He told his party to grow a backbone and fight back at the non-sense coming from the Republicans. His energy was contagious and I think he may have just lined himself up for a job in the cabinet if Obama’s re-elected.
