The comments you’re about to read came not from the Democratic Underground, IndyMedia or some other leftist wacko pit on the web, but from the Democratic Mayor of Baltimore, Martin O’Malley…
“Back on September 11, terrorists attacked our metropolitan cores, two of America’s great cities. They did that because they knew that was where they could do the most damage and weaken us the most. Years later, we are given a budget proposal by our commander in chief, the president of the United States. And with a budget ax, he is attacking America’s cities. He is attacking our metropolitan core.”
So O’Malley is comparing Bush’s budget cuts to 9/11 and Bush wielding a “budget” ax to Al-Qaeda flying planes into the WTC & Pentagon? So now we have to question whether O’Malley is having a titanic overreaction to some minor budget cuts or does he actually consider 9/11 to be such a trivial event that he’d compare it to having less taxpayer money to fritter away? Maybe this is just how O’Malley talks in private to his other liberal buddies and he figured that if it doesn’t upset them, the comments wouldn’t cause a big stir.
Whatever the case may be, outlandish sentiments of this sort have become commonplace in Michael Moore’s Democratic Party these days, which is part of the reason why so many voters have lost confidence in the Dems over the last few years.
