You're right, he doesn't care about Lehman Brothers. He does, however, care about wealthy accountants like Mary Taylor telling his wealthy business's owner that he can save money by moving his operations out of state. He cares if his pension funds suffer because they took bad advice from wealthy Wall Street wackadoos like John Kasich.

And, BTW, are you majoring in Revisionist History at Glenn Beck University? George Bush inherited the recession as a result of Reagan's trickle-down policies. Just like the Bush II recession. Anyone ever notice how we only get recessions during Republican administrations??? Carter is the only Democrat to have a recession and there was clearly a moral hangover after Nixon botched Vietnam and gave us Watergate and Ford did absolutely nothing to fix it. Oh, I am sure that 70s recession also had something to do with Ford/Greenspan's high-interest rate strategy and Nixon's taking us off the Bretton Woods agreement to pay for the war in Vietnam.

That's how Clinton won in '92. There was a recession from '89-'91 (although not nearly as severe as what we are seeing today) and Bush caught the blame.

Oh, yeah, here's more crime from the Republican Crime Syndicate. While the party isn't identified, the Attorney General looking into this and standing up for taxpayers is a Democrat. So, either the Democratic Attorney General can (unlike Republicans) stand up for taxpayers against the greedy without regard to party OR this is yet another example of corrupt GOPers enriching themselves at the public's expense.

Lockland is considered Cincinnati's West Side, which is almost always unquestionably Republican among it's working class / middle class Caucasians.

With this in mind, I find it very telling that some of the "Loyal Republicans" in this story openly admit "that Strickland can't be to blame for Reagan-Bush / Ohio Republican policies."

Cincinnati has a history of doing very well during recessions, and there's a huge stock of 1930's era housing in Cincinnati to prove this. No matter how bad the economy, people always need their soap, insurance, and Rolls Royce / GE aerospace engines.

Its going to take Americans, not politicians. Quit buying foreign made products. Demand from your retailers American made goods and products. If they cannot provide, don't buy and let them know you are not going to spend your hard earned dollar on foreign made products.
Buying american goods will create jobs here in the USA and employ people. Its pretty simple.
Also, tell your bank and phone customer service companies you want to speak to an American in an American call center (not India, Phillipines, etc) If they cannot, send a letter to the president of that company stating your disatisfaction and that you are only doing business that keep jobs in the USA.
If we all did this, business would have no choice but to move production back here. But you as the american need to understand that you will pay more, but jobs will be created. I am willing to pay more to create jobs and invest in this country. Are you?
Too late! EVERYTHING is made in China.

Our American cars are made in Mexico, while our Japanese cars are now made in America.

If you gave people a choice to get a Customer Service Rep in India named "Amy," or pay a $20 service fee to talk to "Ted" in Utah......most people would discreetly choose the free call to India, while openly claiming to pay the service fee to work with the American service rep.

It's really hard to blame Strickland for this mess. Most of the economy problems were national related to the conservatives deregulation of the financial industry combined with the wars in Iraq and Afganistan. I would have liked him to do a few things such as more school financing reform, but with all the budget problems, it's simple not possible. Reducing state gov't would have also been good and it seems as much more can be done with that. But I can't blame him for the mess, most of this is simply not his fault.
AGREED- 20-30 years of Republicans "leading" Ohio [off a cliff,]...

AND THEN SUDDENLY... Strickland is elected, the Great Recession occurs a year later...

AND THEN SUDDENLY EVERYTHING wrong with Ohio is Strickland's fault ???

What I can't understand is how all these Ohioans could possibly believe everything they hear in Kasich's tv ads. Are people here in Ohio really that dense ?

"Strickland lost 400,000 jobs?" SERIOUSLY? I would really like to meet the mildly retarded Ohioans who honestly believe this.

If the state had gained 400,000 jobs would Strickland take the credit in his TV ads? How many would believe that?

Gee, brainiac, do you think it might be because Newport and Lockland are both in the Greater Cincinnati metro area?
