The O’Malley Factor

Martin O’Malley, former Baltimore mayor and Maryland governor, announced his presidential candidacy on Saturday, and said some things that could be taken as criticism of President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

“Today, the American dream seems for so many of us to be hanging by a thread,” said O’Malley, adding “We must save our country now. … Tell me how it is that you can get pulled over for a broken taillight in our country, but if you wreck the nation’s economy, you are untouchable.”

Who is he blaming for “wrecking” the economy? Big banks and Wall Street, not the Obama administration, which has presided over slow economic growth, an increase in the number of Americans who want to work but can’t find jobs and more than 46 million people on food stamps. Last month, the Commerce Department reported the economy contracted 0.7 percent in the first quarter of 2015.

Wasn’t President Obama elected to fix all this? When he promised to “fundamentally change” the country, I doubt most Obama worshippers had this kind of country in mind.

Unlike Hillary Clinton, O’Malley’s chief rival for the Democratic nomination, he has a record of sweeping, identifiable initiatives, which did little to improve conditions for the poor in Baltimore.

Please let me and Joe Albero be contacts for ANY American voter whom
would want a play by play on the Democratic accomplishments in the State of Md. Mike Miller, Mike Busch, and Owe'Malley, had they been in pre war Germany would have been shot without a trial. They, and Jim Mathias ALL have one trait in common, and that being, neither of them are any good at handling the truth.
It seems that when the truth will do, a lie is easier. Ehrlich left the State in reasonably financial security and when they took over they spent the treasury into oblivion never to be solvent again.
People around the Country should take this and other doneybrooks created by him and them into consideration. A rube like him won't get the nomination anyway because of the 'big fish/little fish syndrome.

O'taxie created 83 different taxes and fees for Marylander's. He ran business out of business and out of state.

This quack is a FAILURE. A liar, cheat, thief, and no good crook. He should be in jail. I thought at the very least, people in middle America had more sense than vote for this idiot.

Yes, lets elect him. He couldn't run a state, so lets give him an entire country to ruin!

Cool! He appoints himself for whatever the political party he follows. He's appointed his wife as a judge (God help Sand Town) and he has locked in his brother who sells State Stat and Shit Stat or whatever application that his brother's sales commission is applied to. Nothing has changed in MD for 16 years so it must before we are FREE.
