Obama Gaffes Recognizes Gov Jack O'Malley
The Baltimore Sun ^ | February 27, 2012 | John Fritze

Gov. Martin O'Malley is not exactly a stranger around the White House these days. He met with President Barack Obama along with other state leaders late last week to discuss the economy. On Sunday he sat at the same table as the president for an annual governors dinner at the White House. He is a frequent guest on the national Sunday talk shows, usually defending the Obama administration's policies. So it was a bit awkward to see Obama forget O'Malley's name at an education event Monday. Sure there are 50 governors to keep track of, but O'Malley -- the chairman of the Democratic Governors Association -- has a higher profile in Washington than many, if not most of them. Highlighting Maryland education polices, Obama called out what he thought was the governor's name, according to a pool report of the event. "Jack O'Malley, where is he?" the president said. Pause. Silence. "I mean, Martin.” O'Malley seemed to take the moment in stride and even got in a plug for his youngest son, 9-year-old Jack. “I thought my son had crashed the party," he quipped.

Is Rockville still in Maryland? Everytime I go down there I feel like I need my passport ... and a translator. And I got indignant with the clerk at a 7-11 who wanted to charge my a nickle for a bag to put my purchases in - until I found out it is a Montgomery Country law now! (There was a communication problem too, since I don't speak either Spanish or Urdu!)

I thought I was in looney liberal land in Columbia, but Montgomery Co. seems to have us beat!

I did really like going to Rockville when there was a Tower Records, the House of Chinese Chicken and ... they spoke English.

Hang in their my FRiend!

O’Malley is a POS.

I can see where he and Obama would hit it off.

O’Malley had a orgasm this week when the Senate passe the gay marriage bill, but we will jerk a knot in his ass when we call it to referendum.

Tax and Spend O’Malley. He thinks he is in for bigger things. I believe he will be fooled. He has driven us into debt destroyed our roads, and now gives us Homo marriage.
