Ohio is playing one of the most important swing states in the 2012 Presidential election. All we’ve heard from the mainstream media is that Ohio will go Obama as it did in 2008. However, things are changing, and changing very rapidly and causing the Obama campaigns to scramble to save Ohio or , as in the Romney campaign – pushing forward on surging popularity. Read more…
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.
Over 500 coal miners from American Energy Corporation’s Beallsville, Ohio mine operations gathered together to show their united support for their jobs at the Century Mine. The miners press conference was rebuffing president Obama’s ads purporting that the miners were against presidential candidate Romney. Here is their letter to the President.
Dear President Obama:.
We are writing as the employees of American Energy Century Mine in Beallsville, Ohio. You have approved in a running television campaign ads about the Mitt Romney event that was held at our Century coal mine. These ads state that we were forced to attend this rally and that is blatantly false. There are numerous false statements and absolute lies concerning our participation in this event, we, the employees, mostly started by a local shock jock host. Since your approval is attached to these ads, you may not wish to support these mistruths. Why would you lie about the 500 working miners who have signed this letter? We, the employees of Century Mine, would request you immediately stop these false ads. Thank you. Century Mine employees.
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.
A memo sent Friday morning from the Obama campaign targeted Mitt Romney’s record on business and time as Massachusetts’ governor. Now, it is clear the the Obama administration is assuming that Romney will be the Republican nominee even though he needs 1144 delegates to win the nomination. Currently Romney has 20 delegates to Santorum’s 12 and Gingrich’s 0 (but this is another whole story on the media declared “front runner” and “obvious” future nominee).
So, I offer this rebuttal to a rebuttal. Not to defend Romney or endorse Romney, but to show that the current administration, who is pointing out defects in the media declared front runner Romney, reflects right back on them, but in a worse way. The words they use to sting Romney ring so true to home in the White House that I don’t think they can see the forest for the trees. My comments are in red, below.

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.
