A flawed man stands before us , yet so were Kennedy , MLK ,Bill

Why should we be surprised at yet another flawed man who is up front
And center ? He surprises us with open gaffes , baseless accusations . He is a product in part because 16 other candidates chose to lift themselves up, rather than coalesce around one of them to take on the Trump . He picked them off one by one . They were divided against each other . Yet his boldness , spontanaety , unorthodoxy apeals to us .
Let's remember flawed men of the past , Kennedy , MLK, Bill .
Each had more hidden flaws, yet each had seasons of greatness . Today we laud them .

PH2 recall rumors

Word on the street is that there's a supposed recall petition out there for the recall of PH2.

Possibly led by a former fairly-known Democrat.

Not Carty or Konop. They would make this rumor even more juicy.

Anybody know anything?

What if there were a 3-way contest for President?

A lot of people are speculating on the presidentialprimaries and the eventual nominees from the Republican and Democratic Parties. But what if a third person entered the race in Presidential General Election? Remember Ross Perot?
The United States presidential election of 1992 was the 52nd quadrennial presidential election. It was held on Tuesday, November 3, 1992. There were three major candidates: Incumbent Republican President George H. W. Bush; Democratic Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton, and independent Texas businessman Ross Perot.

Tonight could be the first major blow that ends the primaries

Tonight could be the first really major knockout blow in both primaries.

We're finally getting into winner-take-all states with a huge ammount of delegates.

Normally this is done by Super Tuesday but on both sides it's been just close enough to keep this interesting.

Michigan and Florida are the big ones. They hold a lot of delegates. Trump leads in both as does Hillary.

For the Democrats those two states make up almost 350 delegates or 14% needed. For the GOP they make up 160 delegates almost 13%.

Kevin Haddad signs wrongly claim re-election - Haddad says they were vandalized

Tom Troy covers Kevin Haddad's sign debacle where either he forgot to cover up the "re" or it fell off or was pulled off. Tip to any candidate - don't reuse your sign unless you permanently alter them, because it is easy for the sticker to fall off. Kevin has used his signs multiple times and his "Working for you" assumes that he is already "working" therefore, it is not unreasonable for people to look at your sign with suspicion.

The Donald: Is he a liar, an idiot, or both?

Here is a link to an interview from this morning. http://www.businessinsider.com/cnn-anchor-jake-tapper-donald-trump-david...
David Duke publicly endorsed The Donald for POTUS. Duke stated that, "voting against Donald Trump at this point is really treason to your heritage [whiteness?]."

Republican convention this past Thursday!

Anyone watch? What a bunch of Jack off's. This is the best entertainment on TV. LOL

It is not illegal or against sunshine and ethics laws to leak executive session information

I am shocked at the discussions happening about it being criminal to leak executive session information by board members. It has gotten to a point that two people filed Ohio Ethics Commission complaints alleging a Washington Local Board member is doing something illegal and against Ohio ethics laws. Superintendent Hickey is also alleging he will want to make similar complaints (Hickey should know better).

Why does Patrick Hickey feel compelled to tell staff not to talk to board members?

Terri Kern also came across this particular nugget.

Late last week, Patrick Hickey sent an email to staff telling them not to communicate with a board member who was asking questions about his leadership.

I am not sure why he thinks this is appropriate because it is his actions that have aroused the curiosity of the board and community to try really to get to the bottom of what goes on in the district.

See for yourself, the official looking letter Lindsay Webb used endorse candidate

I know this is late, but wanted to put this out there so you can see the letter behind the story. So, what do you think?

Sandy Isenberg-Disservice to Toledo

Sandy Isenberg is not a "political analyst". Sandy Isenberg is nothing more than a talking loud mouth. FYI, she does not believe School Board Members are "real elected officials"! Hey Sandy, how is that roof holding up, https://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1350&dat=20020817&id=zYUUAAAAIBAJ...

Stainbrook's spends $20k in Party Money on legal fees and loses

In an attempt to restore himself and one of his girlfriends to the local Board of Elections, Jon Stainbrook spent nearly $20,000 in local party funds to sue Jon Husted in the Ohio Supreme Court.

He lost.

When all is said and done, the local Republican Party is out $20 grand it could have spent on other things such as money for candidates or funds for local party operations.

Superintendent Patrick Hickey has blocked me on Twitter

Ok, I went back to look at some of Patrick Hickey's Tweets and I saw he blocked me. We must have a professional here. Want to know what I said that made him block me? Wow, I would think he would have tougher skin than that. Strange that a Superintendent would block a member of the public like that only saying the obvious. Putting your head in the sand is not a solution.

Legally, the SCOTUS must declare gay marriage to be legal throughout the United States

The 14th Amendment is really quite clear. No law may be passed which pertains to one group of law-abiding citizens of the United States, which does not apply to others. Here is how "Section 1." of the 14th Amendment reads from the Cornell University Law School:
"Section 1.
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

Obama Is Outsmarting The Republicans Again

I listened to President Obama's State of the Union Address and couldn't stop laughing. The address reminded me of the strategy the Mongols used creating their empire. The Mongols would approach lands and give them two choices. They could surrender and become part of the Empire. If they surrendered they could keep their rulers, religions and cultures. If they refused to surrender they would be totally annihilated. It appears Obama is at the gates giving the Republicans this ultimatum. If the Republicans surrender Obama will go down in history as the most effective POTUS in history.

Lucas County to attract and retain immigrants

http://www.toledoblade.com/local/2014/11/24/Retaining-immigrants-seen-as...

A paragraph in the article says that company's have moved to non-union states and other countries. Wouldn't it be easier to make Lucas County like the other states and countries than to bring in illeagal immigrants er I mean immigrants? Then maybe more residents, at least the ones left here, could start business's without government interferance.

Sorry Pelosi and Obama, your 400k consultant said they mislead us

Washington Post confirms Jonathan Gruber was a consultant for Obamacare - read this Hot Air post to see their argument unravel - warning, to see the lie unraveled does make your blood pressure rise.

Speaker Boner's Jobs Plan Tweet

The true GOP Jobs Plan came out, and it's full of NOTHING, LITERALLY:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2014/10/07/does-john-boe...

BAHAHHAH

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).

Obama Outperforming Reagan on Jobs, Growth, and Investing!

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.

GOP cuts funding request to fight Ebola BY MORE THAN HALF

http://thehill.com/policy/healthcare/217115-gop-cuts-obamas-ebola-fundin...

"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.
