Gingrich shakes the money tree for Chabot


Steve Chabot is not exactly hurting for campaign cash, but there is always more to rake in. So the 1st District congressman is having his old boss, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, in for a fundraiser Wednesday.

Gingrich, of course, led the revolution that swept the Republicans into the majority in the 1994 congressional election; and Chabot was one of the GOP pick-ups that year - he took the 1st District seat from one-term Democrat David Mann.

The fun starts at 11:30 a.m. at the Hyatt Regency downtown with a $1,000-per-ticket private reception, followed by a $100-a-plate reception.



It will, no doubt, further swell the campaign account of Chabot, who, once again, will be targeted for defeat by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee as he tries for an eighth term. Chabot had just a tad over $1 million in his campaign fund as of Feb. 13 - more than twice as much as his Democratic opponent, State Rep. Steve Driehaus, who reported $430,000 in the bank as of mid-February.

It's great that Chabot is one of the few Republicans left who haven't forgotten the Contract with America and the Republican Revolution in 94.

Oh, it is hard to be humble when you are revered in soooooooo many ways !

Thanks for placing us on that blogger pedestal and your most political threat list !

Some are leaders, while wRong wingnut whackos are followers !

NOW for THE FACTS:


"Newt Gingrich has been married three times. He married Jackie Battley, his former high school geometry teacher, when he was 19 years old (she was seven years his senior at 26 years old). After an alleged affair with Ann Manning in 1977, Gingrich sought a divorce from Battley. In 1981, Gingrich wed Marianne Ginther, to whom he remained married until 1999, the same year Gingrich had an affair with a then 33-year-old Congressional staffer, Callista Bisek.

The wRong wingnut whacko, Newt the kook can't even be loyal to his own mate so how can he be loyal to anyone, including the voters ?

Cabot-head seems to be willing to sell his morality for that man made illusion of value we call the dollar. Both values are dropping exponentially !

PATHETIC 'family values' !

HAD ENOUGH, VOTE DEMOCRAT 2008 !

Steve Chabot has lived up to every aspect of the contract with America. As long as he continues his service in this fashion he will always have my vote!

Howie,

What kind of garbage is this? Are you auditioning for a job on Faux News? Chabot;s boss isn't or wasn't Newt Gingrich. His only masters are the Neo-Con Criminal Masterminds known as the Bush Crime Family. Steve Chabot does their bidding. Way to make the illegal war, the tax cuts for the wealthy, the climate-change crisis, and the Repugs' financially ruining our economy, with a cutesy-pie piece of drivel about some weird sort of supposed teacher-mentor reunion.

The Bush Crime Family is turning America into a murderous, facist, Third-World regime, and Steve Chabot is one of their chief enables.

It's called investigative reporting. You should try it some time.

Yeah, part of that Contract on America was that they would abide by term limits -- 4 terms. And Chabot is running for his 6th???

 
at 2:23 PM, March 18, 2008 Anonymous Anonymous said...

Anon 1:52,
Part of the contract was a *constitutional amendment* for term-limits. That requires a 2/3 vote, and, while the Republicans including Chabot voted for it, not enough Democrats voted to get the 2/3 needed.

Basic Civics 101.

Are you kidding us? Contract With America?? We should sue the repugs for reach Of Contract-these people have nearly ruined this nation.

Congressman Combover is keeping some great company, Newt repeated cheated on his wife, carrying on an affair while he was Speaker of the House, and during the Clinton impeachment-which this hypocrite lead. He served his wife with divorce papers IN THE HOSPITAL THE DAY AFTER SHE HAD CANCER SURGERY. What a great guy.

Newt is a grade 'A' sleazeball, and old Buick driving Steve had better watch out, or it will rub off on him.

Newt is certainly quite a contrast to Steny Hoyer who will be stumping for Wulsin and Little hands Driehaus isn't he?
Newt: cut taxes
Steny: let's raise them, especially on married couples and those who've died.
Newt: pro-life
Steny: scored a 0% with National Right to Life
Who best represents Cincinnati values?

 
at 3:29 PM, March 18, 2008 Anonymous Anonymous said...

Shouldn't Steny and the rest of the Dem leadership be at work in Congress passing FISA so our intelligence community can listen in to overseas terrorist communications rather than raising money for hack Dem challengers?

Shouldn't Chabot and the rest of the Repug leadership be at work in Congress protecting our freedoms, defending the the Constitution, and working to improve save economy, which is teetering on the brink of disaster?

Newt has got some great "Cincinnati Values"; thrice divorced, left his last wife while she was in the hospital the day after she had cancer surgery, repeatedly cheated on his all of his wives with at least three different women including a young aide, bounced 22 checks in the House Banking Scandal, was at the center of the GOPAC Scandal where he hijacked not one but two charities for poor inner city kids and funnelled their donations to his personal campaign funds, and to top it all off he is a Deadbeat Dad; his ex-wife Jackie, whom he served with divorce papers while in the hospital suffering from cancer, had to repeatedly take Newt to court to force him to pay his child support.

What a sleazball. Nice company you are keeping Steve.

Didn't the Dems (led by Steny)just pass a budget that would raise the taxes on all taxpayers by an average of $2000/person? That sure sounds like a great idea to help fight off a recession. Steve Chabot has my vote because he votes against these ridiculous ideas by the Dems.

Do you think that little hands Driehaus has values that represent the Westside? I can’t wait until the pictures of Driehaus’ “Girls Gone Wild” party come out! Just another reason why Steve Chabot will wipe the floor with Driehaus this fall. Elder grads for Chabot!

To the bold typer of 12:30 and 5:53: Have you ever stepped back and looked at how completely ridiculous your postings are. You quote those on the left as if they're gospel. If Bill Maher said it, it must be true! You need to challenge your closed-mindedness and read something other than the Daily Kos and Michael Moore's website. Set your radio to something other than Air America, if they're still in business. There's a whole world out there waiting to be experienced if you allow yourself the opportunity. No need to be a follower forever. Just some friendly advice. Cheers.

No, wingnut they did not.

Someone should ask Gingrich which parts of the Contract with America are the "do as we say, not as we do" sections. I guess term limits must be one.

8:51. Your candidate McSame sucks. Let's remember that the Republicans have chosen a deranged fossil who wants everyone to die in eternal war, doesn't understand or care about the economy or healthcare, and can't tell his pruny old ass from Iran or Al Qaeda. Oh, and who for utterly cynical political reasons cavorts with religious maniacs who hate gays and Catholics and are openly cheering for the end of the world.

Suck on it.

Nice, we have a lunatic running around here ruining what good name the Democrats have managed to gain. No arguments, nothing of substance, just name calling. Exactly what this country needs right now. Thanks for helping to put us back in the stone-age.

So with another second tier Dem candidate about to get runover by the Chabot Express, the Dems want to cry about term limits? That's the argument of losers. Besides, I've never heard Chabot speak favorably of term limits anyway.

AWWW, 1:36 got his poor little feelings hurt. Good luck with your candidate who wants to continue with Bush's polocies on the economy, Iraq and elsewhere. You must be out of your mind if you think that the American people are going to put another Bushie in office, as the economy tanks.

Bring back the scandal plagued years of the Clintons or elect a guy who gets "mentored" by a raving maniac minister...is that what you're saying the American people want in the White House? Have another glass of Kool-Aid

Raving maniac minister? You mean like Jerry Falwell or Pat Robertson? Like when Falwell said that God was punishing America for its wicked ways with the 911 attacks?

http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/wp-dyn/A28620-2001Sep14

"God gave the US what we deserved on 911" -Jerry Falwell

Bush is a Falwell disciple. McSame went and kissed his ring.

There have been more GOP scandals in the past 8 years than there ever where during the Clinton years. Plus the Clintons didn't wreck the economy and decimate the middle class.

Suck on it indeed, wingnut.
