Governor Martin O’Malley of MD is still obsessed with Ex Governor Robert L. Ehrlich


This is just to funny, so I had to share this.  Martin O’Malley must really be afraid of Bob Ehrlich if he is sending out newsletters about his fear of him being in office again.  Not only has Bob Ehrlich not announced his intentions, but the paranoia of the current Governor shows through him like a silhouette.  He is running scared already, says, we can’t give him a 3 month head start.

Martin O’Malley has become a shadow of himself, a laughing-stock and a failure to Marylander’s the likes this state has never seen.  He has laid off state workers, furloughed them, all while continuing to spend and beg for more money from the Messiah himself, a second time.

If there is any proof to the contrary of his failures, please explain them to me, as I have a long laundry list of a puzzle he could never put together.

BGE Rate Increase, 20 percent sales tax increase, millionaires tax increase, corporate tax rate increase, 1 dollar a pack cigarette tax increase, failure to downsize his own state cabinet during a recession (he has the largest in the United States, second only to Obama), he siphoned through the rainy day fund, which may I add approached 1 billion in surplus when he took office and manipulated money around like it was monopoly, or should I say, confederate money. Much much more can be stated, but I wanted to provide a brief synopsis.

When he came into office his first year, not only could he not produce a sound fiscal budget, but he grew the budget 30 percent and sucked the rainy day fund dry to offset the structural deficit, all while increasing his spending on his pet projects.

He called a special session to offset revenue drop offs, which led to even more money going out-of-state, business’s moved out-of-state, unemployment rates rose, the slots referendum debacle, which may I add, is still not a functioning entity.  In fact, its more of a mess now then ever.  West Virginia passed a voters referendum in Jefferson County for table gaming, Pennsylvania is in the process of doing the same, meanwhile, slots is still stalled in Maryland.

Let’s see, Marty fired the previous Public Service Commission and put his own people in, then gave them all 50k raises, which led to the total debacle of BGE and it’s parent company Constellation Energy.  O Malley got his dirty little paws involved, all while stating, that he would not get involved with the negotiations between EDF and Constellation.  This meddling almost led Maryland to lose out on a 3rd Reactor at Calvert Cliffs which would have costed BGE customers another huge increase in their bills down the road.  With the Reactor, Calvert County will now have some job creation and revenue, and eventually this will lessen the burden on the electric grids.  All in all, after Marty broke his promises to the BGE customer’s that he will stop the BGE Rate hike, he failed, they still incurred an almost 80 percent increase in their rates, do to deregulation.  Deregulation helped keep rates down, but it was also supposed to help draw in other competition and give customer’s a choice of who they would like as their provider.  This all happened during the Parris Glendenning era and was penned off by the Democratically controlled State House.  Anyone in their right minds knows that you can not hold down the rates of energy and not expect them to rise after the end of deregulation.

Under O’Malleys administration and his cronies in the Assembly, Maryland has gone from the 22nd friendliest state to do business with to the 45th worse state to do business with.  Under Marty, Maryland tops the list with the most amount of taxes in the Country, and 4th in the Country.  Under Marty, business’s have flocked to Delaware and Virginia. People are making their purchases out-of-state and spending like crazy in Delaware and Virginia and Pennsylvania.

Marty loves his illegal aliens in Maryland, helping them to keep their drivers license’s for 6 more years before having to prove Lawful Presence.  The only state in the Country east of the Rockies to have such a law.

Maryland, under O’Malley, now faces a 5 billion dollar deficit over the next 2 years.  Where oh where is that money going to come from?  Is going to his knees and begging The Great One in DC for more help?  Or will he man up and cut his own spending and government?

Maryland in this year alone has had almost 700 million cut from the budget, hitting a 23 percent threshold that would put him on the brink of breaking the Constitutional Laws in Maryland, that state, you can not cut the budget below 25 percent and maintain.  Did the cutting come from his own programs? No, the cutting came on the heals of hard-working Middle Class workers in which he laid off, or furloughed, but refuses to allow a raise in, In State Tuition costs.  First off, 70 percent of those who graduate from High School in Maryland, A, go to Community College or out of State for College on Scholarships.   Below is Marty’s newsletter, and let us all not try to laugh to hard.

Help us take on the GOP

jeff —

Robert Ehrlich claims he still doesn’t know whether he’ll run for governor next year.

But there’s one thing he does know for sure: he’s got plenty of friends ready to bankroll his campaign. He recently made it clear to the Baltimore Sun that he expects to raise $10 to $12 million if he runs next year, despite the poor economy.

Ehrlich’s been wrong about a lot of things over the years, but he might be right about this. The GOP has some pretty significant built-in advantages in next year’s race.

The biggest is a Maryland law that prevents you from donating to my campaign during the Legislative Session. For three months, Ehrlich and the Republicans will be raising money from conservatives and right-wing groups from across the country while the lieutenant governor and I are fighting to create jobs and protect Maryland’s schools.

That’s why we need your help now. We need to raise $500,000 by January 10 to ensure that we’ll be able to keep up with the Republican fundraising machine when the Legislative Session ends.

Will you help us by pitching in to support our campaign today?

Since their big wins in New Jersey and Virginia, the right wing is itching for Republicans to regain power — and they’re willing to do whatever they can to make it happen.

Ehrlich says interest in his candidacy has “quadrupled” since he’s been on the Republican cocktail party circuit in recent months. And no wonder — conservative special interests benefited handsomely when Ehrlich was in office. Life will be a lot sweeter for them if he or another Republican moves back into the statehouse.

With your help, Lt. Governor Brown and I will have the resources on hand next spring to come out swinging against the Republicans — and continue the progress we’ve made for Maryland’s families over the last three years.

We won’t be able to take on the Republicans next year without your help.

Help us reach our half-million-dollar goal by January 10. Please donate now:

Thank you for all your support — and Happy New Year!

Gov. Martin O’Malley

P.S. We can’t afford to give Robert Ehrlich and the Republicans a three-month head start. Please make a contribution today:

  2. I do not believe that O Malley and is cronies Vallario and The Latino Gang in the Assembly would go for it, it makes to much sense.
