Is O’Malley the Democratic party’s next best hope?
O’Malley takes aim at Hillary
Hillary’s email delete-o-rama and foreign funding issues aren’t going away as quickly as the Clinton’s had hoped.
Left without anyone on the bench, the Democratic party is scrambling at the eleventh hour to cobble together a contingency plan.
Then, out of (relative) obscurity emerged the most generic, milquetoast, cisgendered candidate conceivable — former Maryland governor, Martin O’Malley.
Yesterday, O’Malley sat down with George Stephanopolous. Platitude upon platitude, common sense this and common sense that, a quick jab at Hillary and an excruciating answer to an incredibly elementary foreign policy question, and that’s what you get with O’Malley.
Prior to his Perry-esque oops moment, O’Malley not so subtly upped his game by saying it’s time for “new leadership and new perspective” when Stephanopolous mentioned the Governor’s previous support of Mrs. Clinton. “Let’s be honest here. The presidency of the United States is not a crown to be passed between two families.” Zing!
O’Malley struggled to name the single greatest national security threat to the United States. “The number one responsibility for the president is to protect the people of the United States of America. Would that there were only one threat. There are always threats,” said O’Malley, obviously trying to buy himself some time.
Stephanopolous persisted, and cringeworthiness reminiscent of Miss South Carolina’s answer in the Miss Teen U.S.A. pageant, ensued. “The greatest danger that we face right now on a continuing basis in terms of man made threats is um… nuclear Iran and related to that, extremist violence. I don’t think you can separate the two.”
But if you ask his former constituents, they’re not so keen on the idea of O’Malley presidency:
O’Malley hasn’t said for sure he’s running, but indicated if he does, he’ll announce sometime this spring.

O[we]’Malley has NO shot. Thank the baby Jesus.
As a Marylander, I wholeheartedly agree. O’Malley is a schmuck deluxe.
What a zero. No matter — the nominee is Warren. That’s the natural trajectory from Obama. Not a chance in hell this radicalized party will turn to anybody else at this point.
You are overlooking one candidate that is much closer to Barak Obama: Michelle.
Why do you think he kept his campaign staff intact?
I don’t see it. Too gimmicky, and doesn’t factor in “Obama fatigue.”
It’s too… George Wallace-ish.
I agree with you. Imagine the groans of despair from Hillary if Michelle declares.
And you know that the Obamabots would be thrilled to vote for her.
“The greatest danger that we face right now on a continuing basis in terms of man made threats is um… nuclear Iran and related to that, extremist violence. I don’t think you can separate the two.”
He forgot to add that Obama has made both of those threats significantly more dangerous to the U.S. through his bumbling incompetence and malevolent anti-Americanism.
But hey, that’s just what Democrats do, right O’Malley?
“The greatest danger that we face right now on a continuing basis in terms of man made threats is um…nuclear Iran…” Did he determine that while eating cereal with is daughter?
Hillary’s email delete-o-rama. Just love it! Bill’s downfall was ejaculate-o-rama. LOL …
O’Malley lacks the necessary chromosome combination to the next Democrat Party nominee.
“. . . to BE the the next . . “
The primaries will still be in the early phases this time next year. Democrats almost always surprise with their nominees for open seats unless their last VP is a viable candidate. So in this case, expect the unexpected.
Oh, I hope so. /Bill Dana-Jose Jimenez voice
I hope he runs – he’s a gun-grabber.

If you want modern sporting rifles banned, and the rain taxed on a National level, OweMalley is your man.
