Deval "Shocked" by More Job Losses in Mass

While Deval Patrick was galavanting around the world trying to promote business, something interesting happened in Massachusetts. Fidelity Investments, one of the state's largest employers, decided to move another 1100 workers to New Hampshire and Rhode Island. Patrick was "shocked" to hear this news.

I can see why he was surprised - he was in Israel, Europe, and the UK at the time. Maybe if he had paid attention to life in Massachusetts he wouldn't have been so surprised by Fidelity's actions.

Note to Deval: Businesses can move if you don't incentivize them to stay. This is something that big buddy Barack has yet to understand either.
