    This was a completely irresponsible move on the part of Governor Patrick.� Seriously, shopping his autobiography?� I'm sure the chapter on being the Governor of�Massachusetts is going to be a pretty short one, since he's done ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to aid our�cash-strapped cities and towns.� I regret voting for "Do-Nothing Deval" and am growing increasingly leery of that other proponent of change who wants to lead our country.

    I too have been very disappointed by Devall, he certainly won't be getting my vote again. Perhaps this time around the Republicans will put up a decent opponent.. unlikely though.

    You can't judge Obama by Patrick's missteps, they are very different people, with different experiences � such as Obama has been in elected office for a number of years on both the State and Federal level. Obama has handled every sling with grace and eloquence and we have yet to see a serious misstep of poor judgment that has not been handled fantastically.

    mtbr:I agree with your point of view. Deval and Barack are two different people, and you can see the difference by the way they conduct themselves and handle problems.I am disappointed with the way Deval has conducted himself, with the scandals and all, and with his political agenda (i.e. casino initiative). This latest news does not cast him in a positive light with the constituents and public opinion, his focus should be on plight of the people of MA and the state economy, not his ego!!! He is giving more�ammunition to his critics to torch his credibility and political standing.I am having second thoughts about voting for him in the last gubernatorial race in MA.

    Deval needs a new PR person. He couldn't have thoght it wouldn't come out that he was in NY shopping his book deal while the legislature was voting. Someone said that he knew he was going to lose so why stick around? Compare that to the train conductor this past week who knew his train was going to collide with that boxcar but stood his ground and took the impact rather than try to run away in the final moments. Why can't we get people like that in high office?� Mitt ran around the country shopping himself for president. Now we have Deval booking it out of town while his biggest legislative initiative of his administration is being voted on. What next?

    I'm sure the same pathetic aging baby boomers who voted for this loss of a governor will eagerly snap up his new book.� They can sit back on their little window seats, take a sip from their "Kerry/Edwards 04" coffee mug, cast an admiring view at their Prius parked in their driveway, open the cover and start feeling good about their failed socialist, utopian dreams once again...

    Well, I voted for Deval Patrick two years ago.

    And he's done. He won't make it through the primary, and my guess is that he'll take a federal position before his term is over.

    Perhaps Patrick should consider donating his windfall to the commonwealth's cities and towns currently struggling to balance budgets.� Thanks in large part to his outrageous budgetary plans, which incredibly included revenue from casinos NOT YET BUILT, the state's municipalities are now dealing with extremely skewed figures.� So, he hi-tails it out of town, conveniently on an income-seeking personal gig, to escape the embarrasment of the casino fiasco.� Governor, the state's communities are currently going through economic crisis of epic proportions, and you're off on a junket?� Did you demand a full security escort?� As if anyone really knows who you are outside of this state, or cares.� Did the taxpayers of Massachusetts pay for your trip and security?� I'm sure you flew first class, or private jet, on our dime.� Please reveal the expense while we layoff municipal workers and cut town programs that assist seniors and provide basic services.� Do YOU have to pay to have your trash picked up?� We're now forced to buy bags to cover the expense of trash pickup.� Do YOU have to pay bus fees, sports fees, activity fees for your kids?� We do because your 'together we can' motto translates into 'together we pay'.� Are your streets swept of sand and salt?� Ours are not becasue the town ran out of money for street cleaning and there is no funding available to cover the cost.� WILL YOU HAVE TO PAY MORE TAXES DUE TO A PROP 2 1/2 OVERRIDE?� Property owners in our town will when the upcoming override passes, and i think it will this time, because you and your gatekeepers tie the hands of cities and towns with unrealistic, exorbitant mandates, and no recourse guided by common sense to help overrcome the deficits our communities face.� I can go on and on, but it makes me sick.� I hope to God that Barack Obama wins the election and takes you with him to Washington.� Good luck with your book (I expect you'll be spending much of your on-duty time working on it).� Or better yet, go back to Chicago where you came from and sucker them into your hyperbolic philosophies of idealism.� Good luck to them too.� God help us all.

    My thought also was if he is spending time going to New York when he should be here in Mass then when is he going to have time to write a book.� Obviously he will be doing it on tax payers time since he will be getting quite a bit more money for that than being govenor.� I heard that he has been away from the govenors office more than Mitt Romney was.� You would think that having that job that someone would make them accountable for there time. Wish I could take that much time off!!!�

    Then why does he use Deval's speeches??? Clearly he admires Deval...

    I just can't figure out why Deval doesn't pay for his own curtains. Rich for doing nothing is bad enough, but rich AND cheap unless it's with taxpayer's money...

    Seems like he is very much into himself.� We made a very big mistake by voting for him.� He is a weak, self consumed,�clueless man who ran for Governor for the title.� WATCH OUT he will be running for President next.��One more thing ask yourself this:� What has he done for BOSTON?�NOTHING

    This makes me angry. Deval has not done one thing for our state yet and he certainly should not be focusing on himself and his own interests by publishing a book. I guess he only wanted to be governor so he could publish a memoir...� The proceeds he makes from the book should be given to the people of Massachusetts. Such a disgrace.

    Deval Patrick has managed to commit one of the major cardinal sins of politics - thou shalt not arrogantly #### off your base.

    The last time I saw this was with Craig Benson in New Hampshire. When he ran for reelection, he got slaughtered, and his own party (Republican, in that case) didn't lift a finger to stop it.

    How's he going to write his autobiography if there are no Cliff's Notes on the subject.?��� Is this going to be a comic� book because, if so, this guy ain't funny.� He's an out of towner, an�opportunist.� This guy is the phoniest baloney to ever (dis)grace The State House.Since Patrick's arrival, �former Governors will be re-written into Massachusetts history as follows:Romney = Gold StandardCellucci = Clutch HitterWeld = Honorable, respected by all parties.Dukakis = CompetenceKing = CinderellaSargent = Stability Volpe = Political whizFurculo = If you can remember him, you ain't got to worry about Alzeimer's disease. I'm sure Patrick doesn't know who he is and probably never heard of Wintrop either ("is it a suburb of Deer Island,?" Patrick asks)Patrick =� A phoney Chicagoan, basically a carpet bagger.� Assuredly roots for The Sox....The White� Sox, that is�.� Can't wait to unlock convicted rapist LaGuer's cell and set him free. Shame on you Mr. Patrick.� Did you write Obama's book?� Is he going to write yours?� Can't wait to be a supreme court justice if he gets elected, can you?� I don't know how you mananged to fool the voters of The Commonwealth.� Your two slick Chicago campaign consultants, of course.� Same two who are behind Obama.

    We have had a succesion of do-nothing Governors since Dukakis. All using Massachusetts as a stepping stone in order to further their political of business affairs. Is this the best Massachusetts has to offer ? I long for the days of Sargent, Peabody, King and yes even Dukakis.�At least they got things done and when done, they were still of Massachusetts, not free loaders such as Patrick, Romney, Weld and Cellucci.�There must be better candidates among the citizenry of this Commonwealth.

    I just don't see much of a story regarding the book. He is in his first year of his first position in public office,�and his performance has been rather inept. I think the only people who know him are MA residents. Where's the story? Chronologically, you just know the book is going to end with him being elected (the climax?), because everything after that is nothing I'd want to write about if I were him.

    Very disappointing, politicians never let you forget that it is all about them and you feel stupid for voting for them, I wouldn't buy that book if you gave me a hundred dollars to buy it and I am a Democrat
