WHAT THEY SAID,
"I'm a black man elected governor twice in a state where African Americans account for only about 8 percent of the population. I'm a capitalist who believes we need to grow the economy, not just to create wealth, although that is good, but also to mainly create opportunity. In other words, like you and most people you and I know, I don't fit neatly in any box. Basically I believe most political labels and much political orthodoxy is stale and I am suspicious of conventional wisdom. Indeed, of all such political rhetoric, none has failed us more, in my view, than that which says you grow a modern economy by cutting taxes, crushing unions, shrinking governments and leaving markets to do the rest,"
- Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, welcoming the National Association of Black Journalists to Boston.

Poland has and will continue to be on the side of tougher sanctions against Russia despite the fact the crisis has already had negative economic consequences for Poland because a Russian invasion of Poland would have even greater consequences for Poland.
