Gov. O’Malley to GOP: Remove Tea Party ‘Stench’

http://blogs.wsj.com/washwire/2012/11/13/gov-omalley-to-gop-remove-tea-party-stench/

BALTIMORE—Jumping off the fiscal cliff may make Republicans more willing to compromise next year on raising taxes for the rich, said a prominent Democratic governor.

Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley added that he believed Republicans should compromise earlier to remove what he called their “Tea Party obstructionist stench.”

Mr. O’Malley seemed closer to the latter camp in a brief interview after a speech here. The governor said Republicans “may have painted themselves into such a corner that they are not able to support anything on the revenue part of this equation, even for wealthier Americans, until they are faced with the new terrain and the new reality that all of the Bush tax cuts have expired.”

He said President Barack Obama’s re-election was a “pretty strong signal” to Republicans that voters want them to drop what he described as “obstructionist” positions on issues such as immigration.

On the fiscal cliff, he said, “I am hopeful that see that writing on the wall and will want to do sooner rather than later in order to shed their sort of Tea Party obstructionist stench.”

The comments there are interesting, too, especially what's currently the most recent comment:

If confirmation of O’Malley’s assertion were needed, it can be found in most of the comments here.
