We’re a new, grassroots organization in OH Congressional District 8. We’re made up of local citizens who are seeking to hold our elected representative accountable for his actions–or inactions–in Washington DC. Speaker Boehner has been in Washington DC for too long, and while he may have entered with great intentions, he’s become someone who no longer represents us and our needs. Unfortunately, he has become part of a system that seeks to ensure self-preservation.As a group, we decided to come together because we’ve had enough of Speaker Boehner as our representative. We decided that it was time for us to have a voice, to seek real representation–and that’s exactly what we’re going to do. We welcome all people who share this sentiment. We’re working to unite his district to reclaim our voices that have been lost during Boehner’s tenure in DC.Please be sure to add your name to the growing list of people who want to replace Speaker Boehner with an elected official who better represents our voices and needs. If you wish to join us on the ground, be sure to let us know!
Is there anyone from Ohio who can justify voting again for this surrender artist? Is there nobody in the Buckeye State with an actual spine, to run against and beat this RINO clown?Hayzeus Christie, the Republicans, they thirst for death.....
At this point, a dog could beat him, but seriously, I haven't heard of any names being bandied about.If they can find a good Tea/Conservative, they'd be a shoe-in to win.
Actually, what the Republican campaign did was worse than nothing. Mitt and his campaign agreed with Obama publicly on his handling of the automaker bailouts. Romney knows better, with his deep background in business in general, and Detroit auto making specifically. Moreover, Paul Ryan, who also knows better, agreed with Joe Biden on national TV in the VP debate that poor ole Joe and Obama had "inherited" a mess from Bush and the Republicans. Ryan even let Joe "Bite Me" get away with taking credit for saving Detroit! Check the videotape in case you've forgotten.Yes, in typical establishment fashion, the official GOP campaign shied away from the big and confrontational philosophical arguments about liberal versus conservative economic realities -- and instead ran to smooch up to the voters of Michigan in a careful and focus-group-tested way so as not to offend. In other words, in an absurd attempt to try and save Michigan electorally, and to make soccer moms in southern Ohio comfy, a strong message that would have resonated across the other 49 states was jettisoned in favor of "don't rock the boat" messaging.Talk show hosts, internet and cable commentators, and many Tea Party figures have been warning the GOP establishment about this for decades too. Thus, the missed Detroit opportunity in the 2012 campaign is likewise a gigantic "we told you so" moment, and even a casual perusal of the elections of 2010, 2002, 1994, 1984 and 1980 proves it. Again, reaping and sowing comes to mind. ( . . . )No, the Republicans seem determined to let this crisis go to waste. John McCain is out muttering about how wonderful Obama's inflammatory and infantile race speech was. That is, when he's not telling a private institution known as the NFL how they should televise their product. (Even the Detroit Lions, I suppose.) Mitch McConnell is trashing his primary opponent's business career while going squishy on defunding ObamaCare. Meanwhile, in the House, John Boehner is going for full-blown eunuch status for his speakership, pretending that things just happen in the House and he has no control over them. Of course, all the while, they are joining the likes of Peter King and Lindsey Graham and Eric Cantor in crafting some kind of disastrous immigration bill that will attract the likes of Chuck Schumer and Maxine Waters. For some reason, they think this is the pressing issue of our day, and that they have the solution. They are wrong on both counts. And Bob Dole, whose Viagra is apparently not helping fire the synapses of his brain, is urging that process along from retirement.
Not an open TP candidate. The media and the unions would turn it into more of a circus than you'd expect in the heavy population areas where Dems get their most brain-deads. They're the same ones who looked the other way after Ohio stooges for Obama went snooping in Joe the Plumber's tax files.What I'm not hearing is the Ohio GOP at all. I admit part of my lack of knowledge is that I don't read much from there aside from the Toledo Blade, a wholly-owned DNC broadsheet.
You aren't seriously suggesting that no one run under the Tea banner out of fear of how they'll be attacked relentlessly by the opposition, are you?
...in other words, the Establishment candidate will win if the GOP wins a slot at all.
Because to the rabid left, the Establishment candidate is not a village-burning kook out to destroy all tax-and-spend life as they know it. The TP candidate will become the next Jeffrey Dahmer by the time they're done.
