Does anyone think this was not the case? :)
Republican Governor John Kasich and the Ohio GOP may not care that over half of the Lucas County Republican Party Central Committee (LCRP-CC) members recruited by Jon Stainbrook did not vote in the November General Election.

God love Scott Walker! He's been dragged through the mud by the liberals and unions and has come out as a winner several times! The rest of the Republicans should take their cue from him.
Now's the time for Republicans to take the Country in a 180 degree different direction from Obama and his minions. Will they have the guts? Let's hope we don't hear any Republican say the following:
"We must reach across the aisle." (Nope--just use your majority to get things done the way the voters who elected you want them done.)
"We must repeal and replace Obamacare." (Repeal--yes, Replace--no.)
The true GOP Jobs Plan came out, and it's full of NOTHING, LITERALLY:
Here's my take on Boner's plan:
1) Talk a lot and do nothing
2) Endless Benghazi hearings to keep the morons riled up
3) Endless votes to repeal Obamacare
4) Shut down the government (again)
5) Hope the previous 4 are enough to get him and his buddies re-elected so they keep their jobs (instead of having to get new ones in the private sector).
The war mongering former presidential hopeful John McCain knows how to pick em. His former running mate Sarah Palin recently partaked in what appears to be a drunken brawl in Alaska. The once part time Alaskan Governor in the midst of the altercation screamed out, “Don’t you know who I am!” then came the reply from the crowd of onlookers, “This isn’t some damned Hillbilly reality show!”
The Palin Family Allegedly Got Into A Messy Brawl In Alaska And It Sounded Ridiculous
Here it is, from Forbes no less:
”President Reagan has long been considered the best modern economic President. So we compared his performance dealing with the oil-induced recession of the 1980s with that of President Obama and his performance during this ‘Great Recession.’
“As this unemployment chart shows, President Obama’s job creation kept unemployment from peaking at as high a level as President Reagan, and promoted people into the workforce faster than President Reagan.
"House Republicans indicated Tuesday that they will provide less than half of the White House's funding request to fight Ebola in the next government spending bill.
According to a source familiar with the negotiations, House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers (R-Ky.) agreed as of Tuesday morning to spend a total of $40 million to fight the epidemic in the 2015 spending bill.
Like most Republicans, Todd Grayson doesn't know when to shut his mouth (or shut off his computer and smartphone) when it comes to things like domestic violence and womens' rights.
"Presidents don't get vacations — they just get a change of scenery. The job goes with you." -- NANCY REAGAN
Next right-winger here who makes a vacation-related remark is guilty of hypocrisy and making a liar out of The Most Holy Nancy Reagan.

"A Travis County grand jury Friday indicted Gov. Rick Perry on two charges related to his effort last year to force District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign after her drunken driving arrest.
Grand jurors charged Perry, 64, with abuse of official capacity, a first-degree felony, and coercion of a public servant, a third-degree felony. The first charge carries a punishment of 5-99 years and a fine of up to $10,000. The second charge is punishable by 2-10 years and a fine of up to $10,000.
The indictment stems from Perry’s threat last summer to withhold $7.5 million in state money from Lehmberg’s office unless she step down – a threat he later carried out by vetoing an appropriation in the state budget."
Seriously. You have now lost the ability to say that Dems are making it all up.
The National Republican Campaign Committee has created fake news sites about House candidates, presumably to take advantage of readers who don't pay close attention to what news sources they read, National Journal reported.
Earlier this year, the NRCC got in some trouble for creating deceptive fake campaign sites for Democrats that ask people to contribute in order to help "defeat" the candidate.
Iowa GOP Rep. Steve King reignited the debate Sunday about the Republican-led House considering impeachment proceedings for President Obama, just days after party leaders furiously tried to extinguish such talk.
King suggested on “Fox News Sunday” that the impeachment issue could be reconsidered if Obama again uses his executive powers to delay or defer deportation for illegal immigrants beyond those brought illegally to the United States in past years by their parents.
“I think then we have to start, sit down and take a look at that,” King said.
Defend this, conservatives!
On Friday afternoon Kasich released a statement saying he was going to appoint Rick Hodges as Director of the Ohio Department of Health. Hodges, a former lawmaker, currently leads the Ohio Turnpike Commission. Hodges will be replacing Dr. Ted Wymyslo… and that “Dr.” part is kind of important.
According to Ohio Revised Code 121.10:
The director of health shall be either:
(A) A physician holding the degree of doctor of medicine from a medical college approved by the state medical board who, before assuming his duties, has been licensed to practice medicine in the state and who has had experience in pursuing some phase of medical practice;
(B) An individual who has had significant experience in the public health profession.
Unfortunately, generic ballot polling has been sparse so far this cycle. Last week, however, there were three national polls, by Fox News, CNN and Pew Research, asking the generic ballot question. None showed an anti-Democrat wave, like the one that brought Republicans back to power in 2010. In fact, none of the three polls showed Republicans with a lead among registered voters at all.
"There’s not that big a difference between what you call the tea party and your average conservative Republican." -- John Boehner, (R), Speaker of the House
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - New census data show working-class whites now make up less than half of Ohio's eligible voters, a demographic change that has both parties expanding their efforts to reach other voters.
Unpublished 2014 census figures show about 4.1 million, or 48 percent, of eligible voters in Ohio are working-class whites. That's down from 50.5 percent in November 2012.
House Republicans, so worried that a swelling cash deficit will keep them from making big gains this November, have begun cracking down on dozens of lawmakers who haven’t paid dues crucial to the party’s campaign accounts. It’s reached the point that Speaker John Boehner has dispatched his own team to twist some of the stragglers’ arms.
Brookings fellow Niam Yaraghi observed "a positive association between the anti-ACA spending and ACA enrollment." Spending on negative Obamacare ads has outpaced spending on positive ads 15 to 1, according to media research. In Senate races where Democrats are running for re-election, which have been the major targets for anti-Obamacare ads, Yaraghi detected a spike in enrollment.
"This implies that anti-ACA ads may unintentionally increase the public awareness about the existence of a governmentally subsidized service and its benefits for the uninsured," Yaraghi wrote of his findings.
