After the 8 disasterous years of Bush / Cheney (notice how NO Republican candidates for anything ever mention their names), I have to wonder why anyone not a millionaire in Carroll County would vote for any Republican. Republican columnist David Brooks said last year of the Republican Party, "It's not normal." Understatement of the last 1,000 years. Examples would fill a library. Why would anyone vote for someone like Newt Gingrich after what he did to 2 wives (especially the one from Columbiana County, Ohio?) AND, he had to pay a $300,000 fine for misusing campaign money. AND, he was censored by Congress. Santorum OH, NO! PA voters threw him out of the Senate. He says "smaller government", but he thinks its OK for the government to stick its nose into issues like contraception! What a flip-flopper. And, Mitt---oh pleez---Mr. mega-millionaire (estimated worth:$250 million) wears jeans at rallies, just like mega-millionaire Robb Portman. Gotta look like "Joe Average", huh? Mitt said he didn't care about poor people, then quickly added, "they have a safety net." Hey, Mitt, WWJD? In my book, he is a member of a cult (check the definition in Wikipedia.) Remember before you vote for Mitt that his religion says they are the only ones going to heaven. The bottom line is simple: Brooks was right to call the Republican Party "not normal" because all of the candidates for Prez are either slimy (Newt), or just running dogs for the millionaires and billionaires (Mitt and Santorum.) Ron Paul is absolutely right about the foreign wars, but he is nutso about everything else. Does he really think the Ultra-Rich will ever allow a "flat tax" to go into law? If it did, THEY would actually have to pay their fair share and (1) they never have and (2) they never will. Obama isn't perfect and hasn't kept some of his campaign promises, but he's 1,000 times better than any of the (R) "not normal" guys. He got Osama! The auto industry is thriving! Also, SHAME on every Ohioan who voted for Kasich! WHAT WERE YOU THINKING? The guy was a director at the biggest bankruptcy on Wall St.--Lehman Brothers. So you make him governor of our state? Renacci? YUCK! John-of-Orange cry baby Boehner? Spends a lot of his spare time in bars. Alky like G.W.B. BOTTOM LINE: Anyone who can't see that the current owners of the Republican Party (think the Koch Bros. and Rupert Murdock) are out to destroy the Middle-class had better wake up fast. The richest people in our country were the ones who shipped the U.S. jobs to China, Mexico, India, etc. Does anyone out there actually still believe in Pathetic Ronnie's "trickle down economics?" If so, I think you need a strong dose of reality. Stop drinking the FOX fake snooze Kool-aid. Send a letter of apology to Ted Strickland.

Well played sir.... Well played
Too bad the only responses you'll get back will be fueled by the same morbid hate that drives right wing "policy".
You have a sensible attitude And a grasp of the "actual" situation in our beloved DC.
I got to thinking about ole W.... Where the hell is he? I think the last thing he said on air was "since leaving the WH I don't even really think about bin laden anymore"" Didn't Cheney die for a minutes last year? How's Haliburton holding up in this wretched economy? They were supposed to keep the price of oil down by settling the unrest in the region. How did that play out I wonder?

And today's crew... Mr Frothy....Mormon robot......and an amphibian
Mitt is SO not up to the task.
Santorum's dead fetus thing is just too gross, and he is really an odd little man. Dangerously dumb people behind him, very scary
And Newt!!!!!
Did you see the moon base speech???????UNBELIEVABLE!!!!
How could anyone else even fill an IHOP with supporters after comments like that! HE ACTUALLY SAID " by the end of my second term... There will be a base on the moon, and those people could apply for STATEHOOD!". Who could support THAT for P.o.t.U.S.?????????

Yeah..........that Uppity elitist Obama. He is Soooo terrible. Please. If you don't want him fine. But could ya shoot a little higher that the 3 idiots the GOP is dangling in front of you as the way to save America?
