I was a union shop 30 year registered Democrat that always voted a straight Democratic ticket, until 2008. I won't ever vote Democrat again now.

Another sorry story about moronic Ohioans who put Bush over the top twice now complaining that Democrats aren't mopping fast enough so they can repeat the same stupid cycle. Fact is Ohioans are so stupid they don't deserve to govern themselves and thier opinions don't matter either. They'll put Republicans back in charge, things will get worse as they always do under Republicans, they'll put Democrats back in charge to clean up the mess, then complain that Democrats aren't mopping up fast enough and put Republicans back in charge yet again. It's insanity. It's Ohio. It's pathetic.

The decision is easy. Governor Strickland at the time of the next election will have been in office for almost four year. If after four years of 'turning around Ohio' and there has be no turn around, the choice would be to give Kasich a shot at making Ohio whole again.

What will Strickland do with four more years that he has not done the last four years? The question answers itself.

No state can compete with 2 billion cheap laborers in the world. We lost some 2 to 4 million of jobs in our country that went overseas, and those jobs are not coming back. Common sense tells us you cannot replace those jobs. And you cannot solve one problem (deficits and debt) until you have jobs and people paying taxes.

Idiot economists will tell you that a Wal Mart job is better than the jobs we had. We're screwed. And we are seeing the ruining of the middle class.

30 minutes into the video, Veronique De Rugy, economist from George Mason Univ., answers a caller on jobs and she said it was good to have our jobs go overseas and that Wal Mart creates more jobs.

Carlos Gutierrez, former Commerce Secretary under Bush, says dynamics have not changed. This shill for business is a liar. The dynamics have changed. It is globalization and it is taking away middle class jobs. They know it, and they have systematically ruined the middle class. After all, if we need to compete with other countries then we need to get paid a dollar an hour. That is what they won't tell you.

Each state is struggling with tax incentives, cash for clunkers, extension of unemployment benefits, cities and states going broke, bailouts, and casinos for every state. This is a vicious circle of going nowhere.

It will take a huge effort out of Washington to get our economy going again. It will take some 10 to 20 years, if they get it together. We saw this years ago with failed ideologies out of the political parties. It is a shame to see this happen.
