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 the wake of "Snowmageddon," the blizzard that paralyzed the mid-Atlantic region, officials Thursday turned to the mammoth task of digging out, challenged by the logistical problem of where to dump mountains of snow. "There is so much snow that there is nowhere to push it," said Esther Bowring, a spokeswoman for the Montgomery County government in Maryland, which is hauling snow to parks. Although airports reopened Thursday, the federal government remained shut for a fourth straight day, and many schools are closed.

President Obama has invited a small-business owner from Ohio and a Virginia high school student. House Speaker John Boehner has assembled a group of "private-sector job creators. " Amid the pageantry of tonight's joint-session congressional address, even the guest list is used to send a political message, even if viewers at home never see who is sitting in the House gallery. One jab at the president is the invitation afforded to the CEO of Gibson Guitars, who has raised concerns about the federal raid of millions of dollars' worth of exotic woods the company planned to use in production.

Former NAACP President Kweisi Mfume, a onetime Maryland congressman, declared his intention Monday to run for the U.S. Senate seat held by Democrat Paul S. Sarbanes. "I can't be bought.

Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley said he would halt early voting in his largely Democratic state on Monday but President Obama's reelection campaign says they don't yet assume that Hurricane Sandy will significantly disrupt their voter turnout operations in critical swing states. In the most closely contested states, Democrats are pinning hopes on Obama's get-out-the-vote efforts to tip the scales on election day. The president's campaign has been building volunteer networks for months and even years in some areas.
