I want him to run for governor again. He'd WIN BY A LANDSLIDE! Heck, half the people for voted for Kasuck last time would vote for STRICKLAND!!!

I've talke to so many people who voted for Kasuck and now SORELY REGRET their votes. I always ask why they didn't THINK before they voted the last time, and they just say they're really sorry for making a mistake.......

I wish he was still our governor, but this is good news for a good man. Too bad he's been set upon by trolls. That's okay. Their teeth are tiny and the bile they spew will eat them down over time, I'm hoping. Best of luck Mr. Strickland, and please consider running for governor again someday. We miss you big time, here in the land of those who prey on the helpless under the guise of 'balancing the budget." On St. Pat's day, here's a glass hoisted to a big backlash against the Teapublicans in 2011, when the moderate Republicans and Blue Dog Dems take back the government from the wildeyed extremists on both sides of the aisle.

Really? Are you seriously that deluded to not see how much devastation Strickland brough to this Ohio? There was literally NOTHING good that came from Strickland's "leadership". He "balanced" the budget by taking a gift/bribe from the Feds. He spent money he did NOT have, he made this State totally inhospitable to business, he continued the totally FAILED policies of that Idiot Taft. How many jobs left the state due to his policies? Thousands, maybe even hundreds of thousands. And now, he parades around the Statehouse claiming to still work for us. Please he did nothing but payoff unions and those who have become dependant upon government scraps. And frankly, his party has worked VERY HARD to create a dependant class.

Heck, even his wife messed us up wby creating those goofy plates we all have to get now on our cars.

Kasich has only been in office for a couple of months and the only complaints I hear is that his staff is geeting paid more and that he lives at home instead of the mansion. He has ALREADY made more tough decisions than Strickland did in his entire term.

Even this paper, a liberal rag through and through has had editorial after editorial praising the fact that Kasich has actually taken a stand and made a decision. And they are very clear that they don't know if it's the right decision but they praise the fact that he made one. Seomthing Democrats and Strickland and Liberals are totally incapable of doing.

In case you hadn't noticed, the moderate to conservative corporate shills have completely taken over your party. The closest thing to a real liberal left in Wash is Bernie Sanders. And he's a democratic socialist. Pure EVIL (LOL).

He's the reason why Kasich is in office right now!! If people wouldn't have been so disgruntled with crooked Ted, then whack job Kasich wouldn't be in office today!!

How about we get rid of all these worthless politicians from both sides and get some people who are truly concerned about the people they represent!

Lets hope not! ted strickland is a moron, lets not forget one of his last duties in office as governor was he granted clemency to a guy that was a lifetime criminal and a convicted murderer! Drop dead Mr. Strickland, we dont want you in any politics anymore! Thats why we have a new governor, not that he's any better, but he cant be any worse either!!!

No, Bob Taft helped take Ohio down, and his buddy Blackwell would have had for sale signs around the state. Please, get your facts straight. Taft left with Ohio being 50 million dollars in the red, and yet, it was Strickland fault? right....sure.
