O'Malley Blames Bush, Talks Up Obama
Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) traveled last night to Long Island to witness the final presidential debate between Barack Obama and John McCain at Hofstra University.
It sounded as though O'Malley was working on his talking points earlier in the day in Annapolis as he addressed reporters and the public on Maryland's budget crunch.
Speaking at the Board of Public Works, the three-member panel that cut nearly $350 million from the budget yesterday, O'Malley attributed the state's situation to the national economy - and more specifically, to what he said was its mismanagement by the Bush administration.
Bush's tenure, O'Malley told the crowd, would be remembered as "one of the most disastrous presidencies in American history."
Later, while speaking to reporters, O'Malley referenced "the horrible mess the Bush administration has made."
The governor said Maryland's budget situation is largely dependent on a recovery in the national economy, and he said he knew one way that could happen more quickly: if voters elect Obama on Nov. 4.
