Govenor Strickland has more guts than any of the the Ka-sick style politicians who get elected only because they are puppets for the KOCH brothers and other big businesses like Lemann. Go ahead and reseach these KOCH brothers as they laugh while the middle class again gets stripped. It wasn't enough that Wall Street and BIG BANKS stole folks' investments and home equity money through the financial crisis, but then we taxpayers pay for their survival through the stimulus. Now they want more. Those style politicians don't really care and they brainwash good folks through certain conservative, biased media. I wonder how much they line their pockets. It was cruel and childish that the govenor ordered the Highway patrol to lock a public building and not allow folks in yesterday. There was plenty of room. We could see it. What does it say about a man who chastises and calls police officers "idiots". Strickland would never do that. He truly acts on his Christian faith. He doesn't use his faith as a cloak for hate like those in power currently.

Strickland needs to stay in hiding. This is disgraceful how he shows up to bash the man he lost to in the election, and saddled with the mess he left the state. Because he didn't have the balls to deal with the budget crisis he saw coming, Kasich is left to make the tough and unpopular decisions to balance the budget. What a loser!

TED STRICKLAND only lost to 'King John Kasich' by a narrow margin, due to the economy brought to us by the GOP/BUSH administration (by shipping jobs overseas and generally mishandling the national economy).
Bashing the unions will not cure the economy, Sir. KILLING ORGANIZED LABOR IS AN EFFORT ORCHESTRATED BY THE NATIONAL GOP, THE SAME GOP THAT BROUGHT US THE ECONOMIC RECESSION. Ted Strickland was a GOOD OHIO GOVERNOR and does not deserve hateful, evil words.

Ted proves to be the self serving, slave of the unions, just like we knew all along. He is in it for personal gain at anyones expense.
Ted, GO HOME! We dont want you. You were voted out.
