So, how does that crow taste?

Yup. One party rule has ended in our state, for 4 years anyway. It is really up the Democrats now. If they are willing to move back from the hard left and work with others, progress can be made. If they retrench our state will continue to drive itself off the cliff.

MD had to put up with a governor more interested in getting the right check marks on his scorecard to run for President than he was interested in improving our state. His Presidential chances died last night as his home state rejected his legacy.

That's something that hasn't been mentioned much. This election was somewhat of a repudiation of O' Malley.

Also, I'm surprised by the outcome. Brown just didn't energize people like should have.

Incumbents down here fell at the County and Legislative level. But they were Democratic incumbents. Roy Dyson, Senator for Life was beaten as was John Bohannon.

George Owings, former Delegate, former MD Secretary of Veteran's Affairs, a Calvert County Democratic institution, lost in his race for County Commissioner.

Republicans should've targeted the two Mikes for defeat. With both Beretta and Bechtel (and possibly McCormick) slowly winding down their operations in MD, it was the perfect opportunity to exploit of the pro-tax and spend and anti-business policies the Democrats have fostered in Maryland.

Both Busch and Miller are pretty unbeatable, although it should be noted that Miller, now a resident of Calvert County and its Senator, lost Calvert. His margin of victory came from that portion of Prince George's he still represents.

Dinosaur Democrat Kevin Kelly from 1-B is gone too. He was defeated descively by a political newcomer who directly challenged his 1/4 century of work, and asked "How has that worked out for us?" Kelly went to his normal long list of endorsments, his late personal attack ad, but it didn't work this time. He got swept out with the tide.

Allegany County doesn't have an elected Democrat in any partisan office now. This is a bit sad, as we used to be a 2 party county with a strong moderate Dem. faction. Allegany County voted for Gov. Glendening as late as 1998. We had 3 Dems in the legislature, Taylor, Workman, and Kelly until the 1990s. I have seen the state turn hard left just in my life time and see my county feel that no one with a D behind their name can be trusted. Based on how Annapolis works these days, it is hard to blame us.

Think of us as WV in miniature, the blue dogs are gone in much of Appalachia: a region where the Democrats alleged focus on being the party of the poor and dispirited has played well for the last 100 years.

I voted for Shawn Quinn. He may have been a not so popular candidate but there's just no way that I was gonna vote for Brown or Hogan.

The only butt hurt is the 9 point drubbing the Maryland Democrats got at the polls yesterday, in deep blue Maryland no less. It would have been closer, but Obumbler graciously showed up to campaign for Brown last week. Thanks buddy!
You mean the roads don't get fixed, the schools don't get built, and the other amenities associated with a good quality of life aren't done........for FREE!!!

You mean that you have to........pay taxes!!!

BOO HOO!!!!!

The horror..........the horror.......

The wisdom and willingness of Marylanders to invest in their schools, universities, roads, transportation, and other infrastructure is one of the reasons that Maryland has always been considered a good place to work, play, and raise a family.

Lately, a more short-sighted, self-centered, and self-serving electorate has been hijacking the governor's mansion, as illustrated last night.

This mindset is one of the reasons that many of us choose not to return to Maryland.

You ilk are going to destroy a once great state.

Mark my words.

Honestly, MD should've ran Gansler against Hogan for his stave on business appeased more to people such as myself ---that number Hogan kept saying "8,688", or something like that, is the number of businesses MD has lost over the last either years and Brown didn't ever really defend it well nor did he speak much on how he would help all businesses but instead suggested Hogan would give $300 million out the wealthiest corporations annually rather than supporting schools. Brown's comments to make MD the most business-friendly state was all words to voters like me, he didn't insist on reducing the corporate tax, didn't say he'd repeal the taxes that are having MD businesses and individuals making over $150k (which he and O'Malley consider "rich.) leaving, nor did he speak much on how to finance his ambitious pre-K program.

I voted Hogan simply for that matter but with that said I voted Democrat and Green on everything else.
