Valentine's Day love Connecticut style — Democrats and Republicans share swipes.

Updated: 1:10 p.m.
Not to be outdone by their Democratic counterparts, the Connecticut Republicans have sent a little love toward Gov. Dannel Malloy and the party.

In a series of three Valentine's missives, the Republicans are waxing poetic. 
With a smiling Malloy on the side of a card,, one poem reads:

"Roses are red
Violets are blue
I'll raise your taxes
And kill jobs too"

The poems are in response to the Democrats posting a Valentine's Day card on Greenwich Patch which took swipes at the four candidates for the gubernatorial nomination and two congressional candidates.

Original story: 11:36 a.m.
Connecticut Democrats are showing a little love on Valentine's Day...well, let's say a love for using the holiday to take a swipe at Connecticut Republicans.

In a post uploaded to Greenwich Patch, Democrats announced they released "special edition Valentine’s Day cards demonstrating how Connecticut Republicans may say "I’m Yours" to voters this Valentine's Day."

The card features a compilation of photos of the candidates seeking the Republican gubernatorial nomination — Greenwich's Tom Foley, state Sen. Toni Boucher of Wilton, Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton and John McKinney, as well as congressional candidates Dan Debicella and Mark Greenberg.  

In the post, Connecticut Democratic Party Chairwoman Nancy DiNardo said, "For the past six months, we've heard nothing but doom and gloom rhetoric and pandering to the NRA and the Tea Party from Republicans."

In a jab to millionaire and former ambassador Foley, the card reads, "Can all my money buy your love, or at least your vote?"

Boughton was tweaked for his use of social media. "I love you almost as much as I love promoting myself on Twitter."

No word yet on what, if any, love the Republicans may be sending to the Dems. Requests for comment were left with the Connecticut Republican State Central Committee.

Admit it Bobbie--you did not read most of what I wrote. I am "subservient" to NO one but God! Your postings make you appear to be the "hypocritical and paranoid and subservient" one, who takes your marching orders from any unprincipled, self-serving and mindless POL who speciously accuses others of the ridiculous and imaginary "war on women."............................................... And what the heck are you talking about as your "personal and independent win"? Are you running for office?

Bobbie, you obviously WON'T read anything posted by someone who easily refutes the mindless Leftist balderdash--such as that Republicans are engaged in a "war on women" and want children, women and old people to die! Your WILLFUL BLINDNESS was just proven by your "idiotic" statement that I "stand with the insanities of the House Majority," which is an outright Lie!!! ....................... ............................................................................................ As I have stated more than once in this thread (and elsewhere), and again last night at the end of my post: "That is not to say that the 'establishment' career politicians who are nominally Republicans in congress are much better [than the Dems]. Most of them are also self-serving and have abandoned Conservative Principles which this Nation was founded upon and the GOP was supposed to stand for."............................................................ If you were actually interested in TRUTH, you would apologize for mistaken assumptions about me and at least make a joke like the late, great Gilda Radner—in her Rosanne Rosannadana character—“Oh——never mind!” Bobbie, I am almost as old as you and not at all who you ‘assume’ I am. (Remember what you do to yourself when you ‘assume.’)
