O'Malley scores big with debate-night tweet.

Martin O’Malley may be out of the race, but the Twitterverse hasn’t given up on him yet.
The former Maryland governor made it into the top 10 most retweeted messages during Thursday's Democratic debate, according to a list released by Twitter on Friday.

O’Malley’s tweet calling on Hillary Clinton to release her Wall Street speech transcripts made it to No. 6 on the list.
“Said this in 2012 about @MittRomney's tax returns, I'll say it today: @HillaryClinton should release the Wall Street transcripts #DemDebate,” O’Malley tweeted.

It was retweeted 3,750 times and liked 6,424 times as of Friday afternoon. The message came in response to a heated exchange between Clinton and Bernie Sanders over her refusal to release the transcripts from her paid Wall Street speeches. The secretary of state has said that if everyone releases their transcripts, including Republicans, she'll think about releasing her own.

The big Twitter winner of the debate night, however, was Sanders. A tweet from the Vermont senator just before the debate kicked off that said “Public colleges and universities tuition free? Damn right” got 6,326 retweets and 11,901 likes.

2. she'll think about releasing her own

23. Let me help you out.

Democrats on the LEFT like transparency. Sanders and O'Malley agree on that. H. Clinton on the other is more in tune with republicans. Those of us on the LEFT tend to tell it like it is, even if sometimes missing adjectives and paid proof readers.

5. People only hide things they don't want others to see.

For whatever reason, Hillary doesn't want anyone to see the content of those speeches. If she thinks Bernie and reporters are giving her a hard time about it, wait until she's the nominee and the R's get started on it. Just more fuel for the fire.

9. I don't believe the Republicans will touch this issue, because. ...

They all accept money from Wall St.
If anything is damning it better come out before the nomination is decided.
No way I'm voting for a Republican even knowing this info.

But he won't be the nominee.

Paul Ryan will be, and I don't believe he'll mention it.

21. Ryan?

House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wis. pauses while speaking to reporters at the Republican National Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, ruling himself out of the Republican presidential race once and for all.

By ERICA WERNER and ANDREW TAYLOR, Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — House Speaker Paul Ryan's national stature is such that he had to call a news conference to deny he wants to be president. Back on Capitol Hill, he's about to blow through a statutory deadline to pass an annual budget, a major embarrassment for him and House Republicans.

Under the government's arcane budget law, the House is supposed to produce a budget by this Friday, April 15. But a tea party revolt over Ryan's embrace of last year's bipartisan deal with President Barack Obama to increase spending has left him well short of the votes he needs.

"It would appear that we're not going to have a budget," the No. 2 House Democrat, Steny Hoyer of Maryland, told reporters Tuesday. "They made it a big deal. Hypocrisy is part of it," he added. "They're in deep disarray."

13. Yes, they do accept money and I doubt their supporters care.

But when have Republicans ever had a problem being hypocrites? They'll have no problem excoriating Hillary for doing the same things they do.

His campaign never really got off the ground, but next time it might. He is a likable candidate.

11. I've always like Martin O'Malley. He tells it like it is and tries to do what's right. Unlike

 

some of our candidates, which to me would be Hillary Clinton. If she's so insistent that she's not in the bag for big money, she should release the transcripts. She never will, because that would be like a Romney's devastating "47%" comments.

You know that's true, even her supporters.

How can you vote for her anyway?

14. When Hillary says she will release

her speech transcripts when everyone else does, just whom is she talking about. Who has made speeches to the groups that she spoke too? How many of them are running for president?

17. Trump has none, no need for him to do it. Cruz's wife works or worked for Goldman I believe

and Kasich likely has never made speeches to Wall Street. So in truth, probably no one in the running has profited from the speech circuit.....It's All BS on her part as the artful dodge.

Welcome to the party!

O'Malley is right, but she'll never do it. She's afraid of the truth getting out. Plain and simple. I bet her comments would put Romney's 47% remark to shame.

19. O'Malley has demonstrated strong skills and progressive diligence

in governance. An outstanding record in reducing Maryland's carbon footprint as governor! I believe he needs to work on his political theatric skills, but he holds great presidential promise in future cycles.
