Unbelievable. Massachusetts governor, a Democrat, of course, wishes this were not a free country:
In case you could not quite hear it, “It’s a free country. I wish it weren’t, but . . . it’s a free country,” Patrick said on the “Jim & Margery Show” on WTKK-FM. “You know, you got to, you got to respect that freedom.”
Now comes the shucking and jiving. It is coming. It is inevitable. There will be claims that Gov. Patrick was taken out of context. In what context is it OK for an American state governor to wish this were not a free country?
