Tom Zawistowski, Candidate for Ohio Republican Party Chairman, made a statement today concerning news reports about his opponent’s delinquent taxes. Zawistowski said “I received a call from a reporter at the Dayton Daily news asking if I had any comment on a story they were working on concerning Mr. Borges’ delinquent taxes. That is the first I had heard of the issue, but I can say that literally within hours of announcing my candidacy for Chairman on April 2nd, I started to receive calls and emails from people I do not know telling me things that attacked Mr. Borges’s reputation. I told each of those people that I am not interested in their information. In my view, this race is not about Mr. Borges, it is about the future of the Ohio Republican Party. I am running because I am concerned about our Ohio Republican Party and I believe that I am uniquely qualified to address those concerns. I can unify our coalition partners, I can bring new members into the party and I can build the Ohio Republican Party into the powerhouse it should be. I am unveiling to the Republican State Central Committee a very exciting vision for the future of the Ohio Republican party. I am asking the Committee to vote for me because of my ideas, my vision, and my leadership abilities and I believe that they will ultimately do so.”
Zawistowski is the CEO of TRZ Communication, the President of the We the People Convention, the Executive Director of the Portage County TEA Party and the recent Past President of the Ohio Liberty Coalition. He has been running as the candidate that is “uniquely qualified” to unify the Republican Party. Zawistowski believes that he can return Social Conservatives to the Party, while keeping the fiscal conservatives and grassroots groups from leaving the party. Joining them with the core moderate Republicans and then reaching out to Independents, including minorities, to grow the party base.
Amazing how pathetic the presidential supporters are getting here in 2012. When an opposing party has to boo down a 9 year old girl because she shows support for the opposing candidate it speaks volumes. Seriously? She can’t even vote yet!
Ohio is targeted as being one of the most important states in this 2012 Presidential election. A focus group in Stuebenville, Ohio came back at the end where most of the group had made up their minds. Two had leaned towards Obama and six had gone to Romney. This video is interesting in the fact that you have to watch until the very end. Notice the shock and downcast looks by the news reports. The very last second of the video shows the reports with a frown and looking down. If body language speaks, this spoke volumes.
The ad, put out by Tea Party Victory Fund, brings back the “Obama Phone” woman with some hard hitting facts regarding the state of our country. Unfortunately, it would be a funny ad if it didn’t ring true on the dire state of our Union.
Billionaire Thomas Peterffy is spending his own money to explain why he is voting the way he is. His story is compelling as he has lived it and is worried that the America he came to in 1956 may not exist with the opportunities he had if the election goes a certain way. Watch the video and then ask yourself why a man would spend between $ 5 million and $10 million of his own money on airing this video.
I think the answer is clear. A man who has seen and lived through a socialistic political system and became successful here in the United States doesn’t want to see the country that has given him the opportunity for success go back to what he escaped.
Syria has threatened to use chemical and biological weapons if attacked by a foreign nation, however adding that they would not use them on their own citizens.
The question begs itself…Where did they get these stockpiles of sarin, other nerve agents, and mustard gas? Did they these weapons of mass destruction on their own or were they acquired from other countries trying to hide them?
It has been reported that Senator Portman has concerns with the lack of accountability with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). He joined 43 other Senators in sending a letter outlining those concerns to President Obama back on May 2nd, 2011. Shockingly, the White House has yet to even respond to Portman’s concerns or propose reforms to address the lack of accountability.
It looks like, despite what seems to be some errant and bad reporting, there is no movement on this, no deal, and no support from Portman for the Cordray nomination, or any nominee for that matter, for the board until the Obama Administration drops their push for a structure that, as Portman said in his letter below, “violates basic principles of accountability and our democratic values.” Continue reading Senator Rob Portman to NOT endorse any CFPB Nominee Director
By 18th Ohio Congressional District Rep. Bob Gibbs – December 1st, 2011
The failure of the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction, better known as the Super Committee, to reach agreement on $1.2 trillion in spending cuts is a serious disappointment. An opportunity to eliminate some of our huge debt was wasted – and with it, the chance to spur economic growth and create much-needed jobs.
As an outsider sent to Washington to bring a new perspective, I am frustrated that politics as usual has gotten in the way again. While the Republican-led House secured the largest reduction in discretionary spending in history, the inability of the ‘Super Committee’ to come to an agreement to further reduce the deficit illustrates once again that Washington is broken and lacks the internal discipline to make the necessary but difficult choices to pay down our $15 Trillion national debt.
