Remarks by Lt. Governor Kerry Healey of Massachusetts and Introduction of Governor Mitt Romney of Massachusetts, Remarks as Prepared for Delivery at the 2004 Republican National Convention on Wednesday, September 1, Evening Session 7 - 10 P.M. EDT.

NEW YORK, Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- The following are remarks by Lt. Governor Kerry Healey of Massachusetts and introduction of Governor Mitt Romney of Massachusetts, remarks as prepared for delivery at the 2004 Republican National Convention:

Thank you, that's a fabulous reception for a Kerry from Massachusetts!

Now, we've all been hearing a lot about what the other Kerry was doing 35 years ago. But have you noticed he tends to leave off his resume the years when he had my job, Lieutenant Governor of Massachusetts?

John Kerry doesn't like to talk about serving as Michael Dukakis's lieutenant.

And for good reason.

Why would he want to remind voters of Dukakis' legacy of skyrocketing taxes, high unemployment and a plummeting economy? We don't hear much about Kerry's 20 years in the Senate either.

For good reason.

Why would he want to remind us that he voted 98 times for tax increases - or that he voted 126 times against tax cuts for American families, totaling more than 5.3 trillion dollars.

Why can't he own up to his voting record? The fact is, John Kerry can't win by telling us the truth. Because the truth is that John Kerry -- and not Ted Kennedy -- is the most liberal Senator in the United States.

He is simply out of the mainstream -- and he shifts with the tides.

You know, sticking to the truth takes the courage to make tough choices. President Bush understands that and so does my Governor, Mitt Romney.

Governor Romney closed a 3 billion dollar budget gap with no new taxes. He stood up for traditional values against an activist court.

Unlike the other Kerry, I'm a Lieutenant Governor who's proud to serve with my Governor -- a man of uncommon intelligence, integrity, and vision.

Like our President, Mitt Romney is not afraid to take a stand. And unlike John Kerry, where Governor Romney stands today, he'll be standing tomorrow.
 So let's welcome my Governor, the Governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney.
