Talk about bad timing. Connecticut Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff, the ultra leftist Democrat from Norwalk famous for acerbic tweets about Republicans, could have picked a better time to send out a tweet about the party he so loathes.
Seems Republican gubernatorial hopeful and fellow – perhaps in name only – state Sen. Toni Boucher of Wilton, sent out a tweet critical of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s numerous tax hikes. That got Duff’s dander up. Duff sent out a tweet critical of Boucher (see below), as he touted the announcement that Wilton-based chip maker ASML was going to – with the state’s help – add 500 jobs. The only problem was Duff’s tweet came on the same day MASS Mutual announced it was moving 1,500 jobs out of Connecticut into Massachusetts. Net job loss on the day for the state: 1,000 jobs.
Duff might be better off sticking to his more mundane PSA tweets of road closures and power outages. In defending his highly unpopular governor, he was made to look like someone who has problems with addition and subtraction.
