Martin O’Malley: Democratic Party acting “in such an un-Democratic way”

Martin O’Malley: Democratic Party acting “in such an un-Democratic way”

Continues to Buck Democrats Over Lack of Debates

Martin O’Malley is angry at his own party for the lack of Democratic debates, and who could blame him? He’s so starved for media attention that he’s taken to bashing Donald Trump.

O’Malley makes a valid point—what’s the DNC so afraid of?

David Sherfinski of the Washington Times reported:

Martin O’Malley rips DNC presidential debate schedule

Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley on Tuesday ripped the Democratic National Committee over its presidential debate schedule, saying Democrats aren’t going to stand for the “meddling” and “limiting of debate” the DNC is trying to pull.

“There are people throughout Iowa and New Hampshire who are outraged that the Democratic party is trying to act in such an un-Democratic way,” Mr. O’Malley said on MSNBC’s “The Rundown with José Díaz-Balart.” “So I think you will see more debates. I plan to go to as many debates as I possible can.”

Earlier this month, the DNC released a schedule of six presidential primary debates. The first, an Oct. 13 debate in Nevada, is followed by debates in the other early-voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina.

Mr. O’Malley’s camp had gone after the schedule soon after it was released and he continued the criticism Tuesday.

“We’ve now moved from 1 percent when I got in this race two months ago, and then we went to 3 percent [and] now we’re at 7 percent. I’m seeing a tremendous desire in our party and in our country for new leadership and an executive who has the ability to get things done,” he said.

O’Malley was recently interviewed by George Stephanopoulos and complained again about the lack of Democrat debates.

As you watch the video below, consider the fact that O’Malley, like Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, spends a considerable amount of time campaigning on a bad economy and a lack of jobs without once mentioning the current administration.

O’Malley is also annoyed that most of his Democratic rivals are skipping an immigration forum in Iowa this weekend. Suzanne Gamboa of NBC News reports:

Martin O’Malley Blasts Democratic Rivals For Skipping Immigration Forum

Democrat Martin O’Malley’s campaign accused his rivals for the party’s presidential nomination of ceding the immigration debate to Donald Trump because they are skipping an Iowa immigration forum this weekend.

O’Malley and former Sen. Lincoln Chafee, D-R.I., are the only two candidates planning to be at the #UniteIowa forum that is intended to be a bipartisan event promoting what its creator, Des Moines Register columnist Kyle Munson, intended to be a “thoughtful, statewide conversation on immigration.”

“Democrats should not cede the immigration debate to Donald Trump, but that’s exactly what they do when they skip critical forums like the first-ever #UniteIowa immigration forum,” O’Malley spokeswoman Gabriela Domenzain said Tuesday. “If anything it shows that Democrats are all words, no action when it comes to immigration.”

O’Malley doesn’t have much of a chance to snag the Democratic nomination but hey, you can’t blame the guy for trying, right?

“Honest, it wasn’t me that did that bad thing. It was my right arm, and not my whole right arm. Just the wrist and the hand. If you vote for me my left hand will be in charge and you can trust my left hand. It’s not like my right hand.”

— loser who helped make Baltimore feral

A couple of months ago, O’Malley’s complaints about the debate schedule just sounded like a long-shot loser’s desperation, but the steady drumbeat of shoes dropping on Hillary’s emails has changed all that.

Obviously, the reduced schedule was designed to protect her from too much media exposure – she never has had any answers to most of the questions, which is why she avoids all but hand-selected questioners. But now it appears set to deprive the Democrats of an honest vetting of the issues before them. They may come to regret it.

They are not clearing the path for Hillary Clinton. They are clearing the path for Michelle Obama.

They want Hillary to win the most delegates, then Obama will indict her, freeing her delegates to choose another unvetted candidate.

    Gosh I hope you are wrong, what you wrote worries me.

    I sincerely doubt that. I really expect Hil to drop out somewhere around April, once she has her campaign funds all stocked up, and pass the “Vote D or you’re sexist” flag over to Liz Warren. Michelle has exactly zero political experience and is not a good speaker or a good interview.

    Hil has a bazillion scandals for the press to hammer on, while Liz sorta-only has that false minority scam she pulled for a few years, and that can be swept under the rug with enough strident cries of ‘Sexist!’ used against anybody willing to bring it up.

    If they are clearing a path for Michelle Obama, it’ll have to be pretty wide, or she’ll get stuck in the middle of it.

    Literally.

He should organized an unsanctioned debate between him and Fiorina. It would get ratings.

It’s your party, Marty.

Why do you stay in it?

In what hole has O’Malley’s head been stuck in for the past 8 years?

It’s been the Dictatorcrat Party since at least 2008!
