O’Malley defends Obama, slams Romney on Medicare

Gov. Martin O’Malley, President Obama’s go-to surrogate during the summer election season, slammed Republican candidate Mitt Romney Sunday morning on Medicare and taxes during an appearance on NBC’s Meet the Press.


O’Malley, chairman of the Democratic Governors Association, labeled Romney’s choice for vice president, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, as “the leader of the Tea Party Republican Congress” and said the party tickets present a clear choice for the American people.


But OMalley wouldn’t let up, saying voters know Romney has engaged in various “tax avoidance schemes” and has been putting his money in offshore accounts and ‘betting against the future of the United States.”

On Medicare, O’Malley said, “the differences really go to the heart of the country we want to become.” He charged that the Medicare changes called for in Ryan’s proposed budget would force seniors to pay more for coverage under a voucher-based system.

      Peggy Noonan is a certified nutcase. She’s sold her soul to the GOP cause years ago. In her world, nothing the GOP is wrong, even if it is bad for the nation and its citizens. This alone should cause anyone to discount anything she has to say. I really don’t understand why she still has a job. She’s useless when it comes to imparting facts on any issue to anyone.
