Has Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley uncovered why Democrats are so unwilling to reach across the aisle and work with Republicans to avert a plunge over the fiscal cliff? The Wall Street Journal reports that O’Malley hopes Republicans will “shed their sort of Tea Party obstructionist stench” and strike a deal with Democrats on issues ranging from tax increases to immigration reform.

But seriously, stench? Has O’Malley hired Hugo Chavez’s speechwriter?

    If any ‘stench’ needs to be ‘removed’ it’s the stench of Freedom, Job, & business killing Marxist pigs. They only ‘won’ the election, due to #VOTERFRAUD#! I hope they all LIVE forever, so they can see what #VoterFraud#, #Corruption#, and #Marxism# truly ‘gets them’. [email protected]

    Stench. Revenge. Silence Conservative Voices. Ah-h-h, the lovely sound of Democrats trying to pounce on the GOP when it’s down….hey, Governor less than 500,000 votes in a bad GOP year settled the electoral college in reality.
    Remember 2010…..I hope 2014 is bigger & better.
    A lot less McConnell and Graham-esque words and tones, a lot more of Jindahl, Cruz, Martinez, Sandoval, Haley, Pence……..in other words, let the new guys get a shot at the top spots, and be the voice of the party….. Boehner, that means you too.
    Memo to GOP – California – as loopy as it is….see the map….huge, huge chunks of it are beet red. Spend a few bucks here to plant some GOP seeds again…..the state needs it.

    All last week showed was that the libs are getting better at fraud, the golden boy won 59 precincts in Philadelphia, without a single vote being cast for Romney? Even Kim Jong Il in North Korea couldn’t manage that. He also got 140% of the registered vote in one district in Cuyahoga county? How do they report these totals with a straight face? The only stench is coming from the crooked libs, and their lapdogs in the press.

  • libertychicktoo

    O’Malley is such a loser. I should know, I’m a life-long Marylander. Get this – – on the Sunday after Obama made his tour of storm-ravaged NY and NJ, looking very presidential in his bomber jacket, O’Malley showed up for Mass dressed in – – yes, a bomber jacket. How pathetic is that?

    I think the GOP got hammered because they alienated the TEA party.

    And they wonder why we hate them.

    O’Malley’s a jackass and I can’t wait until he is no longer in charge of my state.

  • KansasGirl

    Hey O’Malley, the only stench I smell comes from OWS.

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      Exactly! Let me recall the score from the last two years.

      Shyting on police cars OWS – Many, TEA Party – 0

      Collecting bags of human excrement and secretions OWS – Many, TEA Party – 0

      Rape Tents at Events OWS – Many, TEA Party – 0

        Tug, time to stuff this right back in their faces. I’m done being nice.

          amen sister. It’s way past time.

  • Burt Zerker

    Seems like a lot of politicians on both sides were afraid of the teaparty,…and still are.

    Yes, the GOP does have such a Tea Party stench, it nominated a moderate for President!

    Memo to Martin O’Malley:

    Dream on you moronic douche bag!

    The Tea Party does not have one specific leader, elder statesman or committee that designs strategies who you can infiltrate, strong arm, intimidate and bully.

    The Tea Party is just a wide and diverse group of people you and your socialist ilk have managed to piss off! To the point of getting involved in the system you believed was wired in perpetuity and taking action. Action that involves low hanging fruit at the state and local level. With the occasional side trip to larger targets of opportunity. Like the mid term election of 2010.

    We’re not going anywhere. Get used to it. There’s more to come.

    • AllAmericanGuy1776

      Oh yes you are. All right-wing conservative nutcases are leaving the country, haven’t you heard? Good for America! The country started out liberal and progressive, and that’s the way it’s going to stay. Love it or leave it, rightwingers. (And don’t let the door hit you on the way out–we don’t want any concussions there).

      • carla5731

        Are you willing to do without the Bill of Rights then since it evolved from conservative principles about government?

      • Jack Deth

        Is anyone else hearing an annoying, whiny yapping sound?

        Must be another blithering, ignorant, nonsensical Troll from DU, HuffPo or Kos. Who has lost his way and wants attention while disrupting an adult conversation.

        How rude and insensitive!

      • J. Cox

        Dumbest statement of the week…kudos,its only tuesday,yet you pulled it off.I guess actually reading the constitution,declaration of independence,or any other document the founders gave us is below you right?

        We ain’t going anywhere. We want to watch you parasites fight each other as the gubmint teat dries up.

        I do not think liberal means what you think it means in the case of this Countries founding. But hey you are publicly educated and obviously a modern liberal.. So we will just have to agree you were learning disabled due to the system.

        BTW I wouldn’t leave yet, not when the really funny part is just about to happen..You know when liberal fantasy hits hard cold cruel reality and the math they thought they had all figured out just does not work. This next quarter I intend to make about $8,000 in legal purchases that will net the government $0 in tax. Or exactly what they deserve in my merit based pay system. From those purchases I should be able to pull about an additional $20,000 in lost revenue from the system. Just doing my part to not be part of the problem.

        On the bright side, I was feeling a twinge of guilt that I had not donated to
        Hurricane Sandy relief, but Tuesday Nov 6th was all the absolution I
        needed since the People of New York and New Jersey informed me that they had far more faith in Obama and FEMA to help them and I have already given far too much to that Charity. This is good news for NY and NJ as they can expect their power to be fully restored right about the time Iran declares itself a nuclear nation. That news however may rattle the stock market…Since I know you will never figure it out if left on your own. Think “really fing big deal, think totally destabilized middle east and Persia, think $10 per gallon gas! But hey if you donate to OFA just 3 dollars they are going to raffle off an end of the world golf game with the POTUS! really seriously you can hit the links and watch Rome burn for a second time! how “dope” is that? Fo’ shizzle my nizzle! that will be better than the MTV awards!

        C’est la vie, c’est le guerre. Choose your poison, either is going to very bitter.

      • Matt

        Uh, yeah moron, that’s what you want- the productive people, who go to work every day, most of whom vote republican – they should leave the country and take their tax money with them. But then who would pay for all your free stuff? The sweetest thing I could ever imagine happening is that the producers leave the country and liberals get to see what their economy looks like without the middle class.

      • KansasGirl

        We’re not going anywhere AA, we’re the ones that cling to our bible and guns, don’t ya know? Hehe.

  • nc

    There is some good news: Have you seen the newly elected Repub Gov of North Carolina, Patrick McCrory? I caught a brief interview and was very impressed. One to watch for sure.

    Also love the line of our Govs that stretches from Virginia, the Carolina’s, right through to Florida.

    O’Malley is the odd man out.

    • Vennoye

      To overcome the national media and the morass of deceit that is now called the Democratic Party, it must start at the state level and move up. Republicans made gains at the state level this election. Get enough conservative governors and starve what the federal beast system has become.

      • SineWaveII

        The state level is too high. You’re going to have to start at the local level and move up. Esp. in the areas where the democrats have a monopoly. Good luck though. They use their lawyers and dirty tricks to get everyone thrown off of the ballot. And most of the time they run unopposed.

    • TwitWit

      McCrory is a good guy, BUT, he is continually stressing how BI Partisan he is going to be.. which is interesting, considering the Republicans have held the house and senate.. so.. he has a huge mandate to go full on Conservative.

  • Steve_J

    O’Malley stinks up every room he enters including oudoor ampitheaters.

  • Grumpa Grumpus

    I don’t know— it seems I’ve dpent much of the time in my life waiting for the “more ryan & jindal” GOP.

    I don’t expect the GOP to fo anything but cave.

    I’d welcome them coming around to their senses. If there was a “make-a-wish foundation for it I’d wish for the GOP to throw off the velvet chains of their Progressive Leadership during my last three months it would be fantastic!

    But, I don’t expect anything.

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      I hear you, Grumpa. I had a lot of hope in 94 and it started good but they lost track of how they got there.

    • KansasGirl

      Never give up GG, we need you and yours more than ever.

  • Mike Horve

    maybe the tea party needs to take the GOP to the fiscal cliff and show them whats on the bottom. They better learn about the constitution and bill of rights and start following them or they might as well fade away. Let the real opposition to the liberal socialist move up to fight for us.

  • $21367552

    Yeah he has now lost that Tea Party vote that every Democrat candidate can’t win without. Of course Romney writing off 47% of the electorate was just a brilliant strategy by comparison.

  • Karl H

    And GOP response: What we silenced them at the convention, we disregarded them right after they won us the 2010 elections…what more can we do? They just keep going on about fiscal responsibility and Constitutional blah blah blah stuff! Now they are talking about secession…What else can we do we had to work with them so we could get to DC but you know it is you and only you that we love…we just want to be adored by the media and Democrats…Hell we caved at every opportunity for the last two years and when the election came we shut everyone out and forced a candidate that had less popularity than obamacare down their throats, you have to admit that was a tough job to sell. Do think we have not done our part to help to cause? Now can we talk about the open bar at the inauguration party, You will be giving us premium liquor and not the well drinks this time right?

    Don’t blame looters for being looters that is what they do. I never blame my cat for killing rabbits. Unfortunately The GOP likes to think they can talk the fiscal responsibility game and then fly off to DC and party on the tax payer dime. This is what you get when you have a professional Political class.
