Rep. Dennis Cardoza (D-Atwater), who is retiring at the end of his term, has published a sort of goodbye note to his president, a blistering critique in which Cardoza blasts President Obama as an arrogant “professor” who has alienated himself from his fellow Democrats and the American public. Writing in the Washington newspaper the Hill, Cardoza called Obama an out-of-touch elitist, given to lectures but uninterested in the struggles of real people. He spoke of the early days of Obama's presidency, when the White House, he charges, suffered from “idea disease.” “Every week, and sometimes almost every day, the administration rolled out a new program for the country,” Cardoza wrote.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- As super storm Sandy made its way across Maryland late Monday night, state officials warned that the worst of the damage was yet to come. “We're America's weather in miniature today,” Gov. Martin O'Malley said at a news conference. “We've got the blizzard on one side. We've got the waves on the Atlantic, we've got the tidals and the flooding.” After making landfall near southern New Jersey with hurricane-force winds, Sandy was parked over Maryland, whipping the state with wind, rain and snow.

In a surprise move, North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue announced Thursday afternoon that she will not seek a second term this November. The Democrat said in a statement that she decided against a reelection bid so she could avoid further politicizing her fight with the state's Republican Legislature over school funding. "A reelection campaign in this already divisive environment will make it more difficult to find any bipartisan solutions," she said. Perdue becomes the third Democratic incumbent to decide against seeking a new term this year.

A group of Democratic governors sent a simple message to the GOP: "Cheer up. " "These Republicans that are running for president are so depressed," Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin said Friday after a White House meeting with fellow Democrats. "We've got some good news -- a great president creating jobs. And governors who are seeing job creation and therefore revenues. " Most of the state executives are in the nation's capital this weekend for the annual winter meeting of the National Governors Assn.

Maryland could become one of the first states to legalize same-sex marriage at the ballot box, a new poll by the Washington Post suggests. The survey found that 52% of Maryland's likely voters support Question 6, the “Civil Marriage Protection Act,” which would allow marriage licenses to be provided to same-sex couples. The measure is opposed by 43% and 5% had no opinion. The act stipulates that religious clergy or leaders will not be forced to perform marriage ceremonies for same-sex couples.
