Walk you Lazy, Hypocritical Bum

Buried in this story about the fire at O'Brien's last night that impacted Governor O'Malley and members of the General Assembly in attendance was this:

The governor's security noticed the smell and quickly escorted O'Malley to his black SUV.
The Governor's SUV transported the Governor from the Governor's Mansion to O'Brien's? O'Brien's is a three minute walk (at most) from the Governor's Mansion.

Three minutes.


This from the Governor who is pushing a radical environmental agenda and is pushing average citizens to use public transportation for most of their commuting needs.

It's very hard to take this Governor seriously in his talk about public transit, the environment, and conserving our natural resources seriously when the lazy bum can't even hoof it from his front door to a bar three minutes away.

Seriously Governor O'Malley; maybe you want to try to lead by example before lecturing Maryland's middle and working class families about our use of fossil fuels.

I refrain from commenting on many political items on any blog, but I have to agree with you wholeheartedly on this, Brian.

Brian -

Readers don't know whether the governor walked or was driven to the event. The report says he left O'Brien's in the vehicle.

It has likely been standard executive protection procedure over many years and many governors to drive the governor home from downtown Annapolis events after 10pm or so, rather than having the state's chief executive attracting undue attention from, shall we say, jovial pub crawlers.

And I am sure that the MOM SUV's are hybrids. (While he is touting solar energy BP gets ready to tear down their western Maryland Solar unit) He says it about Jobs, Jobs, Jobs... evidently not here though.

Steve that's a lame argument even for you.

"It has likely been.."

As you told the MDGOP Sentate "Stick to facts or speculation u can back up."

Where was the vehicle parked and where was it supposed to head afterwards? I think some details are missing.
