GOP takes wrong approach...

The news in recent days has been the big build up to the GOP crying party over why it all went wrong. Why doesn't anyone like us? What can we do to be the cool kids? Their answer is....to change and be more like the Libs. Then all will be well and everyone will vote for us...Nothing could be further from the truth!

The things is, if you want to lead...um let's say a political party, you need to have some principals that people can believe in.Sound, character building principals. Right principal.

OH, OH--THINGS LOOK BAD FOR OBAMA IN OHIO

Well, I guess the polls are really full of it. According to an article in the Washington Examiner, 2 things don't bode well for Obama in Ohio:

1) There is a significant difference in the percentage gap of absentee ballots requested by DEMS and GOP (in 2008, DEMS got 33% of ballots and GOP got 19%--in 2012, DEMS got 29% and GOP 24%)
2) There is a 45% DECREASE in the total number of absentee ballots that were requested in 2012 compared to 2008

The combination of those 2 items (GOP having a bigger piece of the absentee ballot pie and an overall significant decrease in the amount of absentee ballots requested) tells you that the Republicans have the corner on voter enthusiasm.

Voting Rights Threatened?

If some GOP lawmakers get their way, it could be a whole lot tougher for people across the country to cast a ballot in the upcoming 2012 presidential election.

FIve Myths About Sarah Palin

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/10/14/AR201010...

From Matthew Continetti's article in the Washington Post.

1. Palin cost McCain the 2008 election.

"She didn't. CNN's 2008 national exit poll, for example, asked voters whether Palin was a factor when they stepped into the voting booth. Those who said yes broke for McCain 56 percent to 43 percent.

Moral Majority Becoming Immoral Majority In GOP?

In the 1980's the Republican Party was swamped by what was then called the Moral Majority. A group of Christian evangelicals wrested control of the heart and soul of the GOP from the mostly moderate, business-oriented men and women who had controlled the party for generations. They took a stand against gay rights, abortions and other issues they considered "liberal". Mostly that was a good thing. They supported Biblical doctrine. In 2010 the GOP is faced with a new uprising: the Tea Party.

What Role in the Election will the Tea Party Play?

The Republican party has no minimum requirements. His conservative talking points come straight from the GOP!

This President and his administration were delivered a nation and economy on life support a year ago. No one understood whether the world economy would implode, resulting in a global depression.

Fortunately, we have stepped back from the abyss and the economy is slowly recovering, but all we hear from the media is why are we not yet out of the woods.

Wow what a day. One thing after another. Jon tries to take his battle to court, court does not fall for it. Jon Stainbrook really makes the legal system earn its money and the latest is today. Given road conditions, I did not make it until the meeting adjourned, but everyone said the meeting went well. Fox Toledo was the only news station to hang around until the end.

So onto the drama:

House GOP: An Earnest Look at 2009

COLUMBUS— House Republicans today highlighted the 2009 legislative year with the following solutions as offered by the caucus throughout the year.

“I am honored and humbled to serve in the Ohio House of Representatives,” said House Republican Leader William G. Batchelder (R-Medina). “Throughout 2009, I welcomed the opportunity to work in a bipartisan manner with members from across Ohio. However, many Republican-offered solutions were either silenced or ignored completely throughout the process. It is my hope that the New Year will encourage an open and honest discussion.”

I usually try these days to avoid commenting on Blade editorials, as their voice becomes increasing more irrelevant over time. In spite of the fact that I have no ties to the Republican Party, I could not however, let pass without comment the editorial today "Dissension in GOP".

Lucas Co GOP investigated by state

Is Jon's offense that he wants to get the money from others hiding the dirty secret he is broke? How can that be? He said he raised so much money and provided such great support? Anyway, sounds interesting. I guess if Jon had any credibility, anything he said would actually have meaning.
