O'Malley should have rescheduled that event. Even Bernie couldn't get me out in the middle of a snow storm.

And yeah, the media loves a freak show. It brings in ratings. O'Malley is just too normal a politician. He needs to start swearing and threatening to kill journalists and terrorists families if he wants their attention.

Well, this is just amateur hour crap.

Sorry, guv. This shows to me your staff are not on the ball. Be in it to win it, or you are just pulling everybody's leg.

Three Dems on Ohio Democratic ballot, but not Martin O'Malley
http://www.cnn.com/2015/12/31/politics/ ... index.html

Roque "Rocky" de la Fuente got enough signatures to be on Ohio's ballot. Do you know who he is? Neither do I.

But he got the signatures to be there, and O'Malley didn't.

(For the record, he turned in 1175 signatures, but apparently did not check to see that more than 175 were disqualified, putting him below the threshold.)

The only reason I can think of for people like O'Malley running is because it costs them no money and then helps sets them up for their next gig, which most times is an attempt at a media career.

Dunno, he may be looking for the Veep spot, and either of his opponents might consider him for it. Or a Cabinet post.

Which would be a very good springboard for 2024. ;)

I think his biggest problem is he is a conventional politician, who didn't seem ready for a very unconventional year.

I also think he basically counted on being the choice to the left of Hillary, until somebody else jumped in who was an even bigger contrast.

Well, if nothing else, as is sometimes said of another candidate (who joined in on this message, and good for him), maybe at least he's "moved the conversation".

BTW, technically it's a late 2015 story, but it continues into 2016.

O’Malley: Deportation raids would ‘rip apart’ families
http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/pre ... t-families

Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley is urging the Obama administration not to carry out raids on hundreds of illegal immigrants next year.

“If these reports are true, they raise serious questions about due process for people seeking asylum, and these raids promise to needlessly rip apart more families and communities,” O'Malley told Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Jeh Johnson in a letter, The New York Times reported Wednesday.

“I am writing that DHS reconsider this approach and instead look for ways to humanely treat people seeking refuge and to greatly improve the legal due process for asylum,” the former Maryland governor added, calling deportation a "last resort."

Reports emerged last week that the department plans to target illegal immigrant families who crossed the southern border since 2014 with a focus on adults and children who have already been ordered out of the U.S. by an immigration judge, according to anonymous officials. U.S. Immigration and Custom Enforcement agents are reportedly leading the large-scale operations.

The raids would mark the first major deportation effort since a spike in illegal migration from Central America last year.

O’Malley said his state offers a model for dealing with the humanitarian crisis.

“When, in 2014, tens of thousands of children made the journey to escape death gangs in Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, we called on Marylanders to step up and help accommodate them,” he said. “Maryland took action to safeguard more refugee kids on a per-capita basis than any other state in the nation.

“Thousands of families opened their homes as foster families. We recruited pro-bono legal help for case preparation. And we did all of this at minimal cost to the taxpayer," he added.

The DHS has reportedly yet to give final approval for the raids.

The proposed deportations are the subject of fierce debate among Obama administration officials and sparked harsh criticism from 2016 Democratic contenders (*).

[snip][end]

(*) Even Hillary, though as usual, far more subdued than O'Malley and Sanders.

Weird. O'Malley bombed at Fusion last night? Doesn't seem that way.

Some Latinos like him the best out of the three candidates.

Hispanic Chamber Of Commerce Says Martin O'Malley Has Best Presidential Immigration Plan
http://www.latintimes.com/hispanic-cham ... lan-348006

If you want to know what pro-immigrant voters are looking for in a presidential candidate, read former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley’s 8-page immigration plan. It reads a laundry list of immigrant activist demands, and goes far beyond the comparatively timid pledges of O’Malley’s democratic primary rivals, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt) and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Healthcare for undocumented immigrants, an overhaul of the U.S. Border Patrol, enshrining sanctuary cities, erasure of punitive immigration laws, and an end to Obama’s Priority Enforcement Program.

That advocacy has won O’Malley the praise of leading voices in the Latino community, including Hispanic Chamber of Commerce CEO Javier Palomarez, who sounded off on the immigration to to MSNBC’s Chris Hayes on Thursday.

“Frankly, the best plan I’ve seen -- and I’ve had plenty of time to speak to all of the candidates -- is from Martin O’Malley,” Palomarez said. “He has put forward a robust plan for how we move forward, and how we begin to fix this immigration system that’s been broken for some time now.”

All three top Democratic candidates agree on a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants in the country illegally, and want to create outreach programs to increase citizenship rates among permanent residents. Yet O’Malley’s plan goes even further, and gets into specifics

For example, he proposes eliminating 3-to-10-year bars on green card applications, an automatic punishment currently imposed on immigrants caught in the country illegally. He’s also offered an overhaul of the scandal-ridden Border Patrol, and changing a key element of the immigration courts: access to attorneys.

Unlike criminal defendants, immigrants facing deportation don’t have access to lawyers. Those who can’t afford an attorney or fail to court pro bono representation face an overwhelming disadvantage in the legal system.

Immigrant advocates have criticized Clinton for supporting the expedited removal of unaccompanied minors without legal representation. She’s since backpedaled on those statements somewhat, characterizing the influx of unaccompanied minors in 2014 as a unique “crisis.”

“I think they certainly deserve lawyers to make their case for asylum for them,” O’Malley said of unaccompanied minors, speaking to the Latin Times in September at a campaign event in Los Angeles.

His plan was released in July. You can read it here.

Palomarez wasn’t the first Latino influencer to sound off on O’Malley’s plan. Latino Rebels listed O’Malley’s immigration plan in an article describing him as the candidate that had “taken the lead on Latino issues.” Jorge Ramos even gave it a nod.

@MartinOMalley released the most inclusive immigration plan so far. Includes healthcare for undocumented immigrants. https://t.co/Xcv1SNfaYf

So. Here's the interesting question. I know a lot of people say the media is ignoring Bernie Sanders.

Whether or not you like, or care, about Martin O'Malley, does this seem fair? And yes, I understand he's way behind the frontrunners, but does that justify this?

I would say who they really are ignoring is Martin O'Malley. And this ain't just CT, because there's data.

http://www.salon.com/2016/01/19/wow_eve ... alley_now/

In a breakdown of screen time, both Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton were seen 33 percent of the time, and 30 percent was dedicated to commercial breaks. O’Malley only got 3 percent of the debate to talk about the issues.

[snip][end]

I can't get this. Perhaps it's a ridiculous 12-way lollapalooza on the Republican side, but can't the Dem party have three candidates? Why does it HAVE to be a two-way race?

Can't the debate moderators be fair?

I agree. I noticed during the last debate when O'Malley tried to interject with his own policy position, the moderator told him he had a question for Sanders.

Martin O'Malley will not be on the Democratic presidential ballot in Ohio after missing a deadline to qualify this week.
The former Maryland governor was seeking to be a write-in candidate after he initially failed to get enough signatures to have his name appear on the ballot. But his campaign missed the Monday afternoon deadline to submit the write-in paperwork, the spokesman for Ohio's Secretary of State confirmed to The Hill....

The deadline to submit that paperwork was Monday at 4 p.m., but the office did not receive it until Tuesday at 8 a.m., the secretary's office informed the campaign.

Why I'm Switching My Vote from Sanders to O'Malley by Karina Alvarez
http://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/ ... /79120836/

[snip]

When I first heard about the three candidates running for the Democratic nomination, I quickly and without much thought supported Senator Sanders. He is loud, agitates the masses, and wants to lead a revolution.

But after doing some research, I found that all of the words from Sanders are not backed up by actions.

Sen. Sanders did two things that stand out: First he voted against comprehensive immigration reform and then went on Lou Dobbs’ show to say immigrants take jobs from Americans; second, he voted to protect the Minutemen on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Our country and the Latino community especially needs a leader with a proven record of looking after our best interests. Of the three Democrats running for president, there is only one with the record that our community needs: Martin O’Malley.

Gov. O’Malley has helped and protected our immigrant community through the course of his career as a public servant. He has the record that proves that he will continue advocating for my family and the undocumented community, which he refers to as "New Americans.”

Just take a look:

As governor, O’Malley granted driver's licenses to the undocumented community and passed the Maryland DREAM Act.

Recognizing that an affordable and quality education is the first step to achieving the American dream, O’Malley also wants to double federal funding for English language instruction, guarantee pre-K for every child, and provide in-state tuition for all New Americans.

O’Malley froze college tuition even during the worst years of the recession and he has set forth a detailed plan on how to ensure each college student can graduate debt-free within five years.

To strengthen the workforce and our economy, O’Malley will increase the minimum wage to $15 an hour and fight for stronger labor laws to make it easier for workers to gain union representation.

A champion of small businesses, O’Malley will provide federal funding to help New Americans start and succeed with their own businesses.

I encourage my fellow Iowans not to fall victim to what the national media, pundits and TV commercials say. Do your homework, and look at each candidate’s record as it relates to the issues that we all care deeply about.

I did that and realized that all along the only candidate who has our best interests at heart, and brings the new leadership we need to get things done, is Gov. Martin O’Malley.

I do think it's weird that the guy in the X-Files 2016 revival who seems to be an Alex Jones type, and drags Mulder and Sculley back into the game, is named Tad O'Malley.

Image

Of course, I think maybe his name is a bit of a riff on Bill O'Reilly. He's a 9/11 truther, but also big into RW politics and the GUNS stuff.

True, O'Malley is progressive on immigration, but if he wants to bring in so many refugees, how will we put them all to work if we can't even find work for the natural born citizens? That would be a debate question I'd ask him. What would he do about jobs? Not just for U.S. citizens, but everyone else he wants to bring in?

Interesting questions. Here's some answers.

http://www.brookings.edu/blogs/jobs/pos ... one-looney

Although many are concerned that immigrants compete against Americans for jobs, the most recent economic evidence suggests that, on average, immigrant workers increase the opportunities and incomes of Americans. Based on a survey of the academic literature, economists do not tend to find that immigrants cause any sizeable decrease in wages and employment of U.S.-born citizens (Card 2005), and instead may raise wages and lower prices in the aggregate (Ottaviano and Peri 2008; Ottaviano and Peri 2010; Cortes 2008). One reason for this effect is that immigrants and U.S.-born workers generally do not compete for the same jobs; instead, many immigrants complement the work of U.S. employees and increase their productivity. For example, low-skilled immigrant laborers allow U.S.-born farmers, contractors, and craftsmen to expand agricultural production or to build more homes—thereby expanding employment possibilities and incomes for U.S. workers. Another way in which immigrants help U.S. workers is that businesses adjust to new immigrants by opening stores, restaurants, or production facilities to take advantage of the added supply of workers; more workers translate into more business.

[snip][end]

It's basic Keynesian theory. If you bring in 100 immigrants, and they buy pencils, then that's several new pencil factory jobs created. Immigrants add to aggregate demand.

Laugh at his poll numbers now.

However, he knows what's going to be the largest minority group in the future. I think he has his eye on it, even if this will not be his election year.

And I don't believe he's "pandering" to them - he's listening to them and respecting them.

http://www.newstaco.com/2016/01/25/lati ... n-omalley/

Surprisingly, O’Malley has led his two other rivals in nearly every issue dealing with Latinos, including immigration. As a presidential candidate, his first interview was with Maria Elena Salinas, co-host of Univision Noticias. His first campaign event was with the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. Back in June of 2015, Cesar Vargas, a migrant rights activist, said that O’Malley was the only candidate with the “only proven record” on immigration and immigration rights. He continued to say that he “fought for it when there was no election.” That was before he took a job as Sanders’ National Latino Outreach Strategist.

Later that month, O’Malley was the first to speak out against Trump on America with Jorge Ramos. In July, he released a detailed comprehensive plan to fix the immigration system, giving a clear pathway to citizenship for millions of unauthorized migrants. In response to the details of the plan, Ramos wrote that O’Malley had the “most inclusive immigration plan so far” on twitter. O’Malley was also the first to accept the invitation to speak to the National Council of La Raza. And O’Malley was the first Democratic candidate to visit Puerto Rico on an official campaign stop in August 1, 2015.

In October of 2015 the CEO of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce praised O’Malley’s immigration plan. He said that it was “frankly, the best plan I’ve seen.” Political commentator, Raul A. Reyes wrote later that month that O’Malley deserved the attention of Latino voters. “O’Malley has made reaching out to Latinos a cornerstone of his campaign,” Reyes wrote. He added: “O’Malley treats Latinos with respect, so we should be willing to consider his candidacy.”

And, in another showing of initiative, O’Malley was the first to issue a statement against Obama’s increased deportation raids at the beginning of 2016.

To the Latino community O’Malley has been saying and promising all the right things. He does not use the terms “illegal immigrant” or “undocumented immigrant.” He prefers the term “New Americans” or “New American Immigrants” to combat stereotypes of criminality and to highlight them as good people and people that contribute to the nation. Yet, a poll by UNIVISION Noticias shows that 74% of Latinos do not know or have no opinion about O’Malley. Sanders does not fare much better, as 68% do not know or have no opinion about him. Clinton, however, has a 68 percent favorable opinion among Latinos. Why?

[snip]

The O’Malley campaign seems to be the only campaign that has built Latinos, Latino issues, and Latino messaging into the foundational structures of its campaign. O’Malley tweets in Spanish and English from his main twitter handle, not just his Latinos for O’Malley group. The campaign speaks to Latinos from its main organs. Domenzain serves as a senior advisor, not just a Latino advisor. Although other campaigns have made high-publicity Latino appointments, Aristimuño points at that “just because you hire Latino activists, does not make you pro-Latino”

[snip][end]

Thanks Professor!

I hope if Bernie gets in he'll reverse those free trade deals sending jobs overseas. I say this because before I got my degree in education, I was a factory worker in a mill that employed people from every walk of life and every ethnic group. I worked with and trained immigrants from China, Korea, Columbia, and El Salvador. With free trade deals, we all lose. This job I'm talking about went to China and Mexico.

O’Malley suspends presidential bid after a dismal showing in Iowa

:o I'm shocked, I tell you! Shocked!

Quote:
It’s unclear what O’Malley’s next step will be. He is a lawyer by training and has served as a visiting professor at the business school at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. O’Malley has said he has no interest in a Cabinet position in a Democratic administration.

During the last DWS-CC debate, Mr O'Malley didn't appear as interested as before. As if his pilot light was already flickering. I can certainly understand his decision to suspend his campaign as well as his disinterest to hold any cabinet office in today's rigged climate in this country. I truly feel that he doesn't want any part of the establishment anymore. I don't blame him if that's the case. I still hold a large amount of respect for him and wish him very well.

Take Martin O’Malley At Least Somewhat Seriously In 2020 … Seriously

https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/ta ... debar=sb_1

Quote:
According to candidate trackers, O’Malley spent 64 days in Iowa between 2013 and 2016, outpacing both Clinton (42 days) and Bernie Sanders (54 days).1 He trailed Sanders in days spent in South Carolina but still beat Clinton in time spent there. And O’Malley is still making those investments — he’s been among the most active potential 2020 candidates in terms of visiting three early-contest states (Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina).

I’ve been conducting interviews with Democratic activists and party officials in those early-contest states,2 asking which potential candidates for 2020 have already visited and made their interest in the Democratic nomination known. Nearly every person I’ve spoken to, without prompting, has mentioned O’Malley. What’s more, nearly everyone has noted that O’Malley has been a long-standing presence in these states since at least 2014.

-----

Why is O’Malley doing all this, and why didn’t it get him anywhere in 2016? To a considerable extent, he’s following the path paved by Democratic presidential nominees George McGovern in 1972 and Jimmy Carter in 1976. This was an important transition period: The party reforms following the Democrats’ catastrophic convention and bitter loss in 1968 had the effect of neutering party leaders. The quick switch from party conventions to primary elections determining delegates made it hard for party leaders to pick a favorite candidate. An entrepreneurial candidate could theoretically take the nomination by doing well in the early contests and using the momentum from those victories to do well in later states, securing a winning coalition of delegates through their own initiative regardless of what party elites in Washington wanted.
