Hostage watch: Gov. O’Malley gets ‘Cory Bookered’ by Team Obama

That was fast!

Just yesterday, when asked if people are better off today than they were four years ago, Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley answered with a clear “no.”

Today he was forced to retract his remark in a complete about-face. That’s what happens when Democrats don’t stick to the current script.

The Cory Booker comparison is irresistible.

Never mind that what O’Malley said was awfully similar to what President Obama told George Stephanopoulos in October.

Oh, I don’t think they’re better off than they were four years ago

Oh, Gov. O’Malley, you’re not supposed to remind people of that. Get with the program!

The governor already walked back his remark on Twitter. And on CNN’s “Starting Point,” he, of course, blamed Bush for the country’s inability to recover completely. Could another hostage video be in the works?

Behind on my email, has @GovernorOMalley put out a better off hostage video yet?
