O'Malley preparing for possible presidential run
« on: February 03, 2014, 12:54:51 PM »
 Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley says he's preparing for a possible run for president.

The Democrat tells The Washington Post (http://wapo.st/1j05R3B) that he can't waste time waiting for former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to decide whether she'll run in 2016. He says he needs to get started on the groundwork for a national campaign.

On Friday, O'Malley reported raising nearly $1.7 million last year with his political action committee, O' Say Can You See.

O'Malley says he's been speaking with foreign- and domestic-policy experts to flesh out his thinking about "a better way forward for our country." He has traveled to other states around the country over the last year to raise his profile, but he won't say when he'll decide on whether to launch a White House bid.

Don't know anything about the guy.  Liberal Democrat?  "Moderate" Democrat?  Viable candidate?
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

He's probably going to position himself as Republican-lite. Makes sense. Most candidates will try to come off as the anti-Obama.

He's taxing rain falling on your home and property in Maryland, I would say that's pretty darned liberal.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

He is far, far left.  Probably running to make Hilliary appear a "centrist."
