    In early 2007, just weeks after taking office, Deval Patrick seriously considered resigning. His wife, weeping and unable to sleep, had been admitted to McLean Hospital with depression. Rather than savoring his election as the first black governor of Massachusetts, Patrick and his wife were dreading four years in the public eye.

    In his soon-to-be-released memoir, “A Reason To Believe,’’ an uncorrected proof of which was obtained by the Globe, Patrick also reveals that he failed the bar exam twice, and that he and his wife, Diane, were rejected — “blackballed,’’ he says — by The Country Club, a famously exclusive retreat in Brookline.

    That will be the most expensive toilet paper I've ever used.

    According to his history, this has been the only thing he hasn't quit, unfortunately.

    My guess is he considered resigning about as seriously as I considered voting for him...

    I would imagine the thought of that nitwit resigning would give quite a few people on this board that Chris Matthews type feeling...

    Unfortunately the voters in lovely Marxachusetts love to be abused year after year and election after election by moonbats like Deval.

    He considered resigning but he went out and got a new caddy and some curtains so he stayed.

    I believe it was LG that called those women Fag-Hags.:giggle::giggle::giggle::giggle:

    Kilvinsky I think, therefore I'll never be promoted.

    I can only agree if it's a small job with no real effect on the country. I've said it before, though I hate what he does here, I'd rather him continue to screw up ONLY this messed up place than get to DC and screw up the UNITED STATES! His buddy is doing a fine job of hat on his own, he doesn't need any help!

    Howie Carr: Hey Deval Patrick, ‘Believe’ it or not — I don’t

    He flunked the bar exam not once, but twice?
    Deval Patrick went to Milton Academy, Harvard College and Harvard Law School, and it still took him three times to pass the bar? What does Joe Pesci say in “My Cousin Vinny”?
    “The sixth time’s the charm.”
    The difference, of course, is that Vinny didn’t go to all those la-de-da schools on the arm.
    So now this millionaire, who skates through life being handed one trophy after another, collects a $1.35 million advance for his book, “A Reason to Believe.” That’s the same title Mario Cuomo and lots of other people used for their tomes, although I’m guessing Deval’s inspiration came from the old Rod Stewart platter:
    “Knowing that you lied, straight-faced, while I cried.”

    He considered resigning? He's way too narcissistic for that, he probably thought without him the Commonewealth would collapse, so he should stay.
