Saving Ohio from Failures wrote:
Why do Republican voters support the same failed policies that created the financial collapse? Most Democrats, however,(who are a diverse group that has been challenged to understand and relate to others different than themselves) have developed and evolved into a party that studies and understands the issues. We speak out on the issues because we can even if it is intimidating to “some” no matter what --- and not because we have a hidden agenda based on greed.
Republican voters must not place themselves in a position to serve any demagogue who reaches out to them even if they are having a hard time weighing the issues or processing what they are being told. In fact, candidates like Kasich try to make it seem like the voters need him to tell them what to do. But, it is always a dangerous sign when a leader fails to serve the citizenry and instead serves and speaks for businesses --- and is backed by those businesses.(Rich Germans backed Hitler.) A leader should represent the needs of the citizenry not serve as the “front” for businesses that need him to support loopholes... incentives... and/or the tax cuts that they want.
At 58, Kasich knows better but has always counted on the Ohio voter to remain in the dark. This campaign season, he says he has to cut taxes to ensure that more businesses move to Ohio but he already knows:“the business inventory tax is being phased out, utility poll taxes were eliminated sometime ago, 81% of Ohio companies pay no more than $2000 a year in income tax, and workers compensation taxes have been quite low for several years.”Based on this information, it is plain to see that he is just counting on the voters to remain lazy and uninformed.
He also knows that he has a record that says he cannot govern. In fact, his solution for balancing budgets has already been tested, tried and has already failed. His plan (in the past) included supporting:“financial deregulation, NAFTA, welfare reform, and any greed bubbles that appealed to someone with his morality such as the housing bubble, etc.--- all built on pro-business policies (loopholes, incentives, low taxes, and outsourcing) and the “steal from the poor” entitlement spending cuts.” But he does not seem to know that we know that these ideas all led to the collapse and will lead to more financial failure if this formula is used again.
What he is really hoping for is that voters do not remember that the Ohio Republican Party failed to create jobs for seven long years.“The state began losing jobs in 2000, including seven years when Republicans held the governor’s office and both houses of the legislature until January 2009. Republican George W. Bush was president for eight of those years.” In fact, the Republican Party and their programs and/or policies as a whole, set the stage for the failure and the collapse of the U.S. economy that took Ohio jobs with it.
But the real question of all questions that he has failed to answer is: Has he learned anything from this Republican failure at governing that has cost millions of Americans their jobs? For some reason he does not want to answer this question since he is campaigning on the same ideas that we already know have failed. Yet, it must be asked until his answer explains why he is running on failed policies. But even then – remember that he is a gambler… who likes to speculate… to take risks… to calculate how many untruths we can stomach since his bid for the governorship is not about us: it is about how much money he and his cronies can make even if the economy fails --- even after all is said and done. Remember, he will do anything for a dollar bill even take 50, 000 dollars for 4 hours a month of work… The only thing that can change this is if we… you do your own homework so you can make an informed decision.
LMAO, Ohio is in the crapper with one of the highest unemployment rates due to consistent Democrat/Union mismanagement and greed.

Some of these guys just don't get it. Compromising, over the years, is what has gotten the Republican party in trouble in the past. I would rather see stalemate rather than let the Democrats slowly chip away at the Constitution.
I agree.

No compromise.

Just like Bark the Kenyan said when the Dems rammed thru the (failed)'Stimulus' with nary a Republican Vote. "We won" was what Bark arrogantly proclaimed, just a few short weeks after decrying partisan politics.

There is no compromising the RADICAL, SOCIALIST, income redistributing policies of Bark the Kenyan and the Dems in Control.

No compromise with Pelosi, Harry Reid, Dingell, Boxer, Barney Fwank, Putz Schumer, Kerry, et. al.

Its time to repeal and replace the various policies that Bark the Kenyan has rammed through, against public will. Then, its time to replace Bark, either by impeachment or his defeat in 2012.

Bark the Kenyan is the worst president in history, by far.

1. No, you are in DENIAL. TARP $350billion, ARRA $800billion, Omnibus $440billion, 2010 budget $1.3trillion added to deficit.

2. Yes. Obama was handed 7.6 unemployment. Currently 9.6. That is ALL OBAMA. Or will you blame Obama's failed plans and promises on Bush too?

3. So you are blaming Bush for Obama's failed plan? Amazing! I had no idea Bush was responsible for the decisions and orders given by Obama. Was there a change in the order of authority? Does the previous administration trump the current administration? Is that how our government works? Maybe Devin can give us all another lesson of how our government functions. Maybe Devin can also finally prove once and for all that Congress can not have vacant seats, as he claims.

4. No, you are in DENIAL. Look at the reports. Why then if insurance is not increasing are people being quoted in the news to increased rates? Why are companies left and right trimming the benefits to their employees?

You are absolutely correct. And if the Republicans can not capitalize by retaking Congress it is just a testiment to how much of a loser they really are.
What else could explain not taking Congress from someone like Reid and Pelosi?
Its unlikely they will retake the Senate, and I bet that's what you are counting on so that you can later claim they failed your stupid, arbitrary test....

But they should take the House.

My, my, how soaring expectations ("Yes we can!")have crashed down to earth in only a year.

ROFLMAO. This was inevitable when people believed the nonsense that Bark read from his ObamaPrompter during the campaign.

I have some of his "economic plans" downloaded. If you need a laugh, I can post them again.....

I noted that the article you posted, in your previous post, about the debt that Bark has run up, came from ABC. Even the main stream media is jumping on him about it. The article also noted that GWB ran up 4.9 trillion in 8 years while Bark has run up 3 trillion in 1 year and 9 months. We all thought GWB was out of control but Bark just puts him to shame in the out of control category.
Come on now, Our Lord Obama is spending us out of the poorhouse that he inherited from the policies the previous 8 years.

Hey hypocrit. I already stated that we could get rid of Medicare and Medicaid and if you don't have insurance and can't pay cash you can die on the street.
My issue is providing insurance to poor people and non-productive old farts while young working people get the shaft.
Either do away with ALL socialized insurance OR go to ALL socialized insurance. But do not go half-stepping and screw working people.
Is that clear now airhead?
All or nothing? Great reasoning.
Those "non-productive old farts" are who've paid their whole lives into a system that promised "security" and who the government has systematically stolen from. Both parties are guilty.

Like it or not, lack-wit, it's the working man that pays ALL the taxes - the key is to put more people to work not lean on the ever decreasing work force in support of the ever increasing, pathetically parasitic, dependent class, because the more benefits you demand the heavier the load. Even you should understand that.

Earth to libatrd!

Regarding item 3, Bush is no longer president. In case you haven't noticed, Obama has been president going on two years now, has increased troop counts and hired the same general Bush used libterds like Moveon Org referred to as General Betrayus. Things are worse now.

The only item you are correct on is item 2. How's the weather on the moon?

Bark Obama does exactly the same thing, with his stupid, empty, meaningless rhetoric.

All the guy does is read stupid speeches, take vacations, and play golf.

They simply ignore the FACT that Republicans DID put forward alternative health insurance reform plans. They simply invent their own reality.

So they invent these stupid rhetorical arguments (like Bark). Like, if Republicans oppose ObamaCare they must favor eliminating all health care spending. LOL.

Their silly tactics are now apparent to everyone, even people who weren't really focused on politics. President Axelrod deceived these people during the 08 campaign, but now these voters are onto Bark's tricks.

Yep. Obama didn't spend $3 trillion. Bush did it. Health care costs aren't rising. They are actually falling and if you are someone who just happens to have higher premiums and less coverage, well... blame Bush. High unemployment? Bush's fault.

Bush, who since leaving office has acted with dignity (in refusing to address Obama's absurd smears) must be having a good laugh at Bark.

Bush never blamed anyone, and he easily could have. Bark Obama is a trash talking Chicago Street Thug. The most unprofessional and incompetent president in history.

Oh look, unemployment surges to a stunning 10%!!!! Oh look, 100's of thousands of EMPLOYED americans are dropping their healthcare because the Obama mandates are making health insurance too expensive to afford, and now these newly uninsured will be fined by our federal government for not carrying healthcare. Liberals are stupid mother #^%$#s.
