Your Fail of the Day

September 18th, 2013 - 1:45 pm

This is just embarrassing for folks in Maryland, or ought to be. Here’s your esteemed (cough, cough) governor in the Washington Post.

OMALLEY

Meanwhile, here’s what’s going on in Texas.

TEXAS

And here’s the state of the state in Maryland.

MARYLAND

Texas, mind you, is dealing with a huge influx of new people from failing blue states — like Maryland. The “native” unemployment rate in Texas, for people living there before the Great Recession, is under five percent. O’Malley can’t even think that small.

Maryland has another an unfair advantage over Texas. It’s lucky enough to border our imperial capital city, which is now the richest area in the country. That helps creates jobs and demand in Maryland which Texans (and the rest of the country) must help pay for.

What Maryland does better than Texas is spend other people’s money.

The Texas model is sustainable. Maryland’s is dependent upon Washington.

I’ll take Texas.

"magically create jobs"

Well, there's the problem. He calls it magic, despite the real-world evidence. He thinks that government spending ("investing") will do the job, despite the complete lack of evidence for such. He is delusional. The whole collective belief system is delusional. It's fantastic thinking, this dreaming of manmade Utopias.

As a Marylander, I apologize. O'Malley also has pretensions towards national office. I apologize for that as well.

Clowns like O'malley simply lack the gene that allows them to reach conclusions through reason. It's amazing that some of these lefty types can't see what works in one state, then replicate it in theirs.

Can't anyone up there tell him - "Well, you've done that. It hasn't worked"

One of the best things about Texas is we don't have a legislature full of buffoons like him that think they are paid to sit around, think big thoughts, and save the world. Our guys mostly need real jobs since they only meet every other year, and then have to balance the 2 year budget.
