While Larry Hogan Works for Bipartisanship, this is what Maryland’s Democrats Are Doing
In his State of the State Address, Governor Larry Hogan talked about the need for bipartisan solutions to Maryland’s problems. Clearly, Senate President Mike Miller and House Speaker Mike Busch aren’t interested in that. And neither is the Maryland Democratic establishment.
A new Facebook page has emerged, called “Maryland Change.” It’s either a satirical homage to or a blatant ripoff of Governor Hogan’s wildly successful Change Maryland brand. However, the page is populated with poorly created infographics that seem to be out of the Maryland Democratic Party’s handbook of childish attacks with no basis in solving Maryland’s problems.
Even some of their infographics have problems that are painful obvious to the naked eye. Take a look at this one, for example:
Demand accountability! #MarylandChange #NoMikes
It would probably be news to Peter Franchot that he was promoted to Lieutenant Governor. It would certainly be news to Boyd Rutherford, that’s for sure.
It’s sadly amusing that after years of nearly dictatorial control over Maryland State Government that this is what the Maryland Democratic Party machine is reduced to. Reduced to poorly conjured Facebook sites, with bad design, links to dead websites, factual inaccuracies, sophomoric jokes that don’t really make a lot of sense to anybody but Democratic Party apparatchiks and, most amusing of all, no authority line. Even after running a number of Facebook ads, they can’t even get 200 likes on this silly page. Given the fact that the people most likely responsible for this site are either attached to the Maryland Democratic Party leadership or attached to the Legislative Leadership in either the House of Delegates or the State Senate, it’s a sad commentary about exactly how bad of shape the Democrats legislative future is and how bad off the Maryland Democratic Party’s electoral chances are for 2018 and beyond.
