Right. If Hogan delays the purple line or screws up it's chances of getting more federal money, it will only cost Maryland tax payers more in the long run. That line will get built and if they drag it out, it's going to cost a lot more and waste a lot of money.

Write your letter to Anthony Brown. Hogan and the voters of Maryland don't owe you anything.

Not so fast. Hogan said in his campaign that he would repair the roads. I'm not supposed to take him at his word? lol God forbid I accept defeat and put my trust in the Governor-elect. Geeze.

He's still sulking in his apartment in the basement of his parents' house.

Well, you fools went ahead and voted for Hogan and against your best interests.

Get ready for four years of major butt-hurt.

Relax and don't clinch, it'll hurt less going in.

Obviously you don't live in Maryland, otherwise you would know that our "best interests" do NOT include endless tax increases.

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!

Hogan used the Purple Line to get the votes from MoCo and PG Counties he needed to win.

Hogan's a purist loon and I wouldn't count on him seeing your logical arguments as logical. He's in and wants to position himself as a conservative hero to get into the White House. I'm glad we have the good fortune of a Democratic legislature to keep the creep from his full agenda.

The Democrats lost their supermajorities in both chambers. So any veto by Hogan will be upheld. Maryland moonbat liberals got their rear ends handed to them yesterday.
