"Patrick says he is under no financial pressure to sell."
I wonder if it's because of his savvy investment strategy. Or maybe it's because of this thrifty, prudent nature.(Actually, that makes no sense. He's a Massachusetts Democrat, one of many who wouldn't know the definition of "thrifty" or "prudent" if it was broadcast on their personal teleprompters."
Perhaps he knows the end is near, as he continues the long tradition of Massachusetts politicians who have grown rich off the salaries of the Commonwealth's taxpayers who actually have worked over the years. Or, perhaps he sees a position in the Obama Administration, where he can wear his empty suit and fit right in with the rest of the federal hacks (especially having been passed over for the Supreme Court slot - sorry ... I could not keep a straight face when I typed that last part).
In any event, it must be nice to be able to sell your home without any financial pressure upon you or yours. The rest of us - laid off, over taxed, and running out of our meager resources - wouldn't know. It is just another disconnect between the people who love this Commonwealth and what it once stood for and the politicos who have created and sustained the sordid political and economic morass it has become and upon which they plan to feed in perpetuity.
