Mass. Governor Deval Patrick: I Got "Quite Drunk" After Marathon Bombing Manhunt
CBS News ^ | June 6, 2013

Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick says he went to his rural home the day after the surviving Boston Marathon bombing suspect was captured and got "quite drunk" alone at a restaurant.

The Democrat made his comments Wednesday while visiting a Cambridge marketing firm.

Patrick says he was relieved that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was captured on April 19 because otherwise people would have been complaining about the "shelter in place" order he gave that day, locking down Boston and several suburbs.

Maggie Merelle, co-owner of the restaurant Rouge in West Stockbridge, told the Boston Herald that Patrick had a "glass of chardonnay or two" with dinner but wasn't drunk.

Merelle told the Herald that hosting the governor that evening made her feel "like an old Jewish mother feeding him. We just wanted to nourish him."

Patrick said he had no money and couldn't pay his bill. Merelle says he eventually settled his tab.

When you’ve just watched your employees end a terrorist manhunt, you’ve got a hankering for a tall, frosty glass of . . . free chardonnay.

A man of high character might have gone to a house of worship and approached Almighty God in prayer, for guidance.

On the other hand, a man of lesser character might run away to a secluded spot and have a few drinks at someone else’s expense, and then later whine about it like his delicate psyche was the victim.

Trial balloon for Obama and Benghazi -- you see, the president would have rescued those fine people, but he was quite drunk at the time ...

The funny thing is, I think he is making it up, because he thinks it sounds good.

I could imagine if I was in his position doing the same thing. But as governor, he shouldn’t be so stupid as to admit this in public. What the hell is wrong with leftist black politicians? Damn near NONE of them have a clue how to play the game.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh.... Just the kind of leader you want in place, especially if there's a follow-up attack. Because they're so similar and close friends, maybe we now know what Obama was doing the night of Benghazi.

That's not true, he is never out of site, feel, and butt kissing range of his security.

If you are a 2nd term president or governor of a major state, doesn't that mean you know, "how to play the game?"
