Strickland is showing his true colors. He is just a political as the rest of them. He is wasting our time and money by making these appointments. Maybe it is the chance for him to do his paybacks?
He is a waste and I am glad he is gone!

Some of the appointments these Republicans are refusing to confirm we appointed months ago. Their attitude here is so highhanded that it is verging on unethical. This shows what we can expect of them for the next two years at least--skirting the law and ethics and patterns of practice and fairness that exist in the government. They apparently think that the voters will remain permanently stupid about how untrustworthy the R's are. There will be corruption like the state has never imagined over the next four years and at the end of it, despite some of the problems, Ted Strickland will be viewed as a saint.

Hey "watcher?" Ted Strickland IS STILL OUR GOVERNOR. He honored the appointments that HIS predecessor made, but it appears that YOU and Mr. Kasich don't have the same respect for the office.

Sad, isn't it? For Republicans, is all about politics and power...it's what YOU ALL live for. Ohio will be WORSE off for the next 4 years, thanks to you, Mr. Kasich, and the others who make politics THEIR primary focus..........

What is the "we" appointed part? Are you Ted Strickland in drag? Thank you for your opinion Ted, but leave your attitude and opinion with the keys to the Governor Mansion.

Bye Bye.

It is time to look forward. Gov Strickland can nominate, as is his job, and the Senate can vote up or down as is their job. Then when can get on the with the business of improving the economic climate in this state. We have a significant budget issue to solve, lets get focused on this and other key issues.

Strickland is really sticking it to these people he is appointing knowing full well that Kasich has the right and authority to appoint people he thinks will help his platform. These appointees shouldn't count on these positions at all after January. Kasich needs to clean house on ALL Strickland appointments. These people are just going to become a cancer and do whatever is necessary to undermind the new administration. Don't everyone go crying and boohooing, every administration does it and if they don't, they don't to their own detriment.

When a new governor takes office that governor should have the privilege of making his own appointments to these boards and commissions. None of Strickland's people should still be serving when Kasich takes office just like none of Taft's people should have been lingering around after Strickland took office. How can you expect an executive to put his plans in motion when these boards are filled with people who were appointed by someone who holds an opposite political philosophy??!!!
Sorry Ted

Ted's people need to go. It is the way it has been done and will continue to be done.
What concerns me is that Ted is still appointing people right up to the last minute. Kasich needs to clean house of the inept an ineffective Ted political hacks.

Most of Stricklands appointees have been dem party faithful with little to any experience. Thus we got the poor performance we saw from his administration.

Sorry Ted, did anyone tell you yet that you lost?

Before the elections, the big-goverment people that Strickland nominated already faced an uncertain chance that the Republican majority that the voters elected in 2006 and 2006 to the Ohio Senate would consent to Strickland's proposed nominations. Now that the voters elected even more Republicans to the Ohio Senate in 2010, they are more motivated to reject big-government people.

I am certain that Governor-Elect Kasich will love his new friends in the Ohio Senate.

Tim, do you really think democrats do not want power ? Politicians all want power and if you don't agree then you should open your eyes.

AMEN Strictland cleaned house when he took office. He obolished departments and quickly fired many vital qualified people. Strictland and friends should be removed.

BYE BYE TED! Even Obama couldnt save your tired butt.

Ohio will be so happy to see the failure of Ted Strickland to go away in January.
He has surrounded himself with some of the most inept, ineffective and incompetent people ever seen in state government.
I have heard story after story of political hacks with NO experience being made heads of departments over seasoned well qualified staff.
Just because the have voted D. Kasich will appoint qualified people that will perform or will be gone. Ted just let them linger.....

Most of these positions are Gifts from the Gov to people who worked for him. It's how they stay "employed" while their party is out of power. These positions should be first on the list of cut's being made to reduce the budget shortfalls. We don't need Government funded "positions" given out as payment for loyality to outgoing governors. It's all part of the "good ole boy" politics and should be eliminated. Senate, refuse to confirm them, and then Budget folks, look to see if they are really necessary. Most are "pork" jobs and contribute to our debt,
Gov elect Kasich, elminate most of these useless positions. If they involved work, the people wouldn't want them.

What departments were abolished and which vital qualified people were fired? Since there were no departments abolished you can't possibly answer that question, can you?

Let's recall that Strickland kept two of Taft's cabinet directors around. Is that how you define "cleaning house?"

Listen, up to a year ago I was in state government and my spouse currently is and currently they, state agencies, are STILL hiring people, primarily attorneys, and putting them in little hidden positions in the hope that the Kasich administration will overlook them. I'm telling you, if the Kasich administration doesn't ferret out these plants of friends and political hacks of Strickland's, his administration will constantly be battling these moles.

Does the phrase, "Graceful exit" come to mind to anyone? Strickland is just showing the same arrogance and ignorance that rightfully cost him his job. These 11th hour maneuverings make him look all the more pathetic.

Some of you folks are funny....and frightening

Reagan lashes out at Carter for a budget deficit and then goes on a spending spree that leaves an outlandish debt.

Mondale says both he and Reagan are going to have to raise taxes and all Reagan says is "There you go again" and then he raised our taxes.

Then Bush41 says "Read my lips. No. New. Taxes." and raised our taxes.

Then the Congressional Republicans produce a "Contract with America" and pledge not to raise taxes and when do they do? Yep. Raised our taxes.

Bush43 just went crazy and spent and spent and spent for eight years and he never did catch Osama bin Laden (but we got Saddam who tried to kill his daddy). Who was responsible for TARP? Oh yeah, that was Bush43 (for those of you who like to complain about TARP).

Bob Taft even called his opponent in 2004 "Tax Hike Tim" before taxing you on items that had not been subject to taxes before (like dry cleaning).

Now John Kasich is going to trim a $8 billion dollar + deficit by CUTTING our taxes?

At least we can give Bush41 credit for calling it what it is "VooDoo Economics".
