O’Malley Officially Challenges Hillary

The symbolism was a bit off, or a telling example of what the future may hold if Martin O'Malley wins the White House. With the Baltimore skyline in the background, the former mayor of the city announced Saturday that he would seek the Democrat nomination for president. Between the idealistic socialist Bernie Sanders and the conniving politician Hillary Clinton, O'Malley doesn’t seem to have much of a chance winning the Democrat Party’s horse race. Publisher of the Rothenberg and Gonzales Political Report, Stuart Rothenberg, told the Baltimore Sun, “The only way he’s going to have a path, is if [Clinton] stumbles. Right now, it’s not about O'Malley and I don’t believe it ever will be about O'Malley.” While we know Clinton’s track record on foreign policy, we know O'Malley’s track record on domestic issues through his leadership in Maryland. It was he that brought tough, zero-tolerance policing to Baltimore — the policing strategy that contributed to the riots that recently rocked the city. Furthermore, it was the guitar-playing politician’s progressive economic strategies as governor that drowned Maryland in taxes and waterlogged the state’s economic engine. That economic policy caused Maryland to have the third slowest economic growth of all the states from 2011 to 2013, The Wall Street Journal reports — something the nation’s economy cannot bear after years of implementing Obama’s economic ideas.
