But what the pricey campaign ads cannot gloss over is reality: Sherrod Brown has always been a shifty, unethical, shady, boorish politician:
Brown, who blindly supports the failed economic policies of Barack Obama has these issues looming against him: Brown voted for Obamacare, which imposes new taxes and regulations on businesses. Brown has consistently voted in line with the extreme environmental lobby, including joining Obama in his war on coal, but Ohio gets 86% of its electricity from coal. Brown championed “card check” at the behest of the unions, which raise costs for businesses, and Brown fervently supported Occupy Wall Street, which is virulently opposed to businesses. And the bottom line is this: the U.S. Chamber of Commerce gave Brown a lifetime rating of 32, the 4th lowest among the current 100 Senators.
Brown compared GOP governors to Hitler and Stalin on the Senate floor, then, incredibly, went on MSNBC and denied it, even though you can see it on C-Span.
Brown bleated,“Everybody knows that government creates jobs”, echoing his 2009 prediction in his newsletter that after the government invested more than $8 billion, Ohio would have as many as 133,000 more jobs.
He was slightly off; two years later in 2011, Ohio had actually lost 109,000 jobs.
Brown is so far left that the Plain Dealer didn’t even attempt to hide the fact in its endorsement:
“When Brown, 59, does go rogue, it is usually because he wants to push the president or his party further left on issues such as health care or taxes … His often gleeful partisanship has earned Brown the ire of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Club for Growth and other conservative groups.”
And here, Brown showing his true colors, using Anti-Semitic phrasing in his latest smear video of his (Jewish) opponent: http://www.fireandreamitchell.com/2012/09/07/ ...
Sherrod Brown is a truly depraved, soulless politician, with clear aims at embracing Obama's brand of obtrusive, Big-Government meddling and tax hikes. s
