This afternoon I took a trip to downtown Circleville, Ohio to catch a stop on Rob Portman’s just launched RV Tour. Rob spoke to grassroots leaders from the area and stressed the importance of this race; and Ohio in general in 2010.
He stressed how important it was to avoid giving President Obama and Democrats in Congress another rubber stamp for their liberal agenda. He noted that on a host of issues (health care, energy, taxes, the deficit, etc.) the Democrats are pushing liberal policies out of line with the common sense conservatism and values of Ohio.
He noted that the stimulus was rushed through and yet is having little to no positive impact on Ohio despite the Democrats grandiose promises. He noted that on issues like Cap and Trade and Health Care the Democrat proposals are simply going to raise taxes and kill job growth in Ohio.
I was lucky enough to have a chance to talk with Rob briefly on the RV. In the video clip below he stressed these same issues and highlighted why this race is so important.
If you haven’t already done so be sure to check out Rob’s new web site and get involved in the campaign.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Donald Trump gave his victory speech after his big win in Indiana tonight, and it was actually fairly coherent up until the end, where he mentioned the War on Christmas, among other thing. It was actually a very leader-ly speech, in which he gave thanks, hit his high points, acknowledged Ted Cruz’s announcement from earlier tonight, and moved on. | Read More »
With the chairman of the Republican Party, Reince Priebus, swearing eternal loyalty to ZOD (in the words of Jay Cost, I feel about the Republican Party the way Garrison felt about the Constitution. It is lost, and I will no longer have any part of it.
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES So I’m getting a lot of emails from people – some friendly, some hostile – asking “what’s next” for the #NeverTrump movement. Quite frankly, I’m puzzled at the question. I mean, the entire meaning of the phrase was intended to convey that we would never vote for Trump, at any time, for any reason. It’s rather unambiguous, the word | Read More »
