Foley would be A useless joke as Governor. The last thing Ct need is more destruction from Republican Governors. Governor Malloy has just dug us out of the mess created by grandma Rell and the Republican criminal Rowland.

Sure, it was the Republican Governors, not the veto-proof Democratic majority in both houses of the legislature. Do you believe the Governors rule by dictatorial fiat? Its the legislature that continues to pass bad legislation incurring greater costs on businesses & taxpayers.

Your excuses are old and worn out. The governor as chief executive is responsible for the failures as with past Republican Governors and the success as with the current democrat Governor... See strummie its much like that of a CEO as the buck stops at the Governors desk.. Now does the strummie understand.

Right and Malloy should have stayed in Stanford where he really fits in not thr rest of the State

Foley should run in Greenwich where he really fits in, not the rest of the state.
