Say howdy to Steve today

Everyone's invited to Monday's open house at the brand-new Steve Driehaus for Congress headquarters in Cheviot.

The fun starts at 5:30 p.m. at Driehaus HQ, located at 3741 Glenmore Avenue, just south of Harrison Avenue.

While you are there saying hello to the Democratic candidate in the 1st Congressional District, chances are somebody will try to sign you up for some volunteer work. The Driehaus campaign is wasting no time -- they plan to start canvassing 1st District neighborhoods this Saturday, 220 days before the election.

Driehaus wishes he was Steve Chabot. First he does cups like Chabot. Now he opens his office in Cheviot. Give me a break. People are smart enough to realize Steve Chabot is the real deal and no matter how hard you try you're not going to even come close to him let alone unseat him.

If Steve plans on having such an intensive canvasing he had better consult Jim Parker. That guy knows how it is done and knows how to talk to the people of Southern Ohio. Driehaus would be wise to consult Parker. We all know that Cranley has no idea how to talk to the voters of the 1st district...

Ah yes, the "vote for me because my name is Steve too" campaign. I wish Cranley were running.

I'm voting for Harris

Let's count how many posts the paid Chabot staffers put up here.

The only thing Jim Parker knows how to do is be a leech on the ass of society.

Seriously. Don't you have a day job? Do you really think posting on politics extra is going to help your political career any? All you do is talk about yourself in the third person.

Jim Parker is a man of integrity. Jim Parker claims the posts that he makes. Those of us who continue to follow Jim Parker are the ones who post on this blog--those of us who don't believe in politics as usual, those of us who believe that a politician should be able to look you in the eye and tell you what he means. THAT is what Driehaus has to capture. THAT is what Driehaus needs to learn if he wants to carry the district.

I dropped by his headquarters tonight to thank him for supporting gay marriage and voting the liberal line. We need more liberals like him in Congress.

Keep up with the race locally here

Just what we need in Cheviot. I will be sure to stop by and thank him for supporting gay marriage and liberalism. I suppose some more section 8 housing in Cheviot would be on the agenda too.

I live right around the corner from the Driehaus office in Cheviot (across from St. Martins Catholic Church). I can't wait to go in and thank him for supporting radical pro-abortion politicians like Nancy Pelosi. When I think of partial birth abortion I think of Steve Driehaus.

Seriously, if you guys think that gay marriage is the most pressing issue in our country then we are in sad, sad shape. WHO CARES?!?!

Fix the economy, fix the war, fix our international reputation, fix our public schools, fix our health care system, fix the fuel crisis....and you guys are talking about gay marriage?

C'mon.I don't care how you feel about it, but if you--either way--make such a stupid issue a priority then I feel very sorry for our country.

Cheviot Sorts Idiot, yea we get that you are the same dimwit that already posted this exact same comment at 1:04, and on other threads as well. You might want to get some original material. You should stick to sports, which is more of a fit with your low IQ than politics seems to be.

Here we go again. Another "moderate" Democrat bankrolled by the union bosses, trial lawyers, pro-abortion zealots,gay marriage advocates, and the Washington DC liberal elite. Haven't we been down this road before?

Driehaus is going to roll Chabot this time. Steve Driehaus knows how to campaign and is personally appealing. He combines Greg Harris' personal appeal with John Cranley's intellect. He is going to suprise everyone with a big win against Congressman Combover.

And he won't be the only one. This is going to be such a washout for the Repugs this year that they will think of Election Night 2006 as "the good old days."

If they lost big with $2.50/gallon gas, wait till gas is over $3 a gallon.

If they lost big when there were 3,000 Americans killed in Iraq, wait till we pass the 5,000 mark.

If they lost big when we spent $500,000,000,000 on this illegal war, wait till we hit the trillion mark.

If they lost big when the dollar was on par with the Euro, wait till they face the voters when Chimpy McHitler has plunged us into his 2nd recession and the dollar is worth less than the Canadian loonie, on its way to even-Steven with the peso. (Well, that will take care of some of the 12 million illegals BushCo let into the country to drive down working-class wages.)

If they lost big when Bob Ney and Mark Foley were the only criminal Repugs in Congress, wait till they face the voters with 8-10 more Congress criminals' mug shots on the TV commercials.

If they lost big when the housing sector of the economy was running well, wait till they face the voters with 2 million more American families in foreclosure and entire communities devastated by Repug housing/lending policies.

If they lost big when Bush and the Repugs gave corporations tax breaks for sending 2 million U.S. jobs overseas, wait till they face the voters with 5 million Americans being replaced by people too lazy to sneak in illegally.

If they lost big-time wehn the American public didn't know that Bush's Consumer Product Safety Commission was looking the other way while China poisoned American kids and pets, wait till the voters go in to the booth fully aware of how damaging and literally life-threatening Repug policies have been to them.

Bush, Cheney and the Repugs have made America hated around the world and Americans too poor to travel anyway.

Finally, if they lost big with corrupt Repugs like Ken Blackwell couting the votes, imagine how big they will lose when the votes are finally counted honestly.

The Great Myth used to hold that we had two political parties, each with their own ideas and visions for making America stronger and more prosperous. Now, there is only one political party committed to that goal.

The people currently running the Repugnicant Party would literally let each and every one of the people reading this, even their most loyal party stalwarts, die a horrible death if the alternative was that some industrialist somewhere might not make as much money as he or she had wanted to.

Thanks to the Repugs, the insurance companies can take life-saving medical treatments out of your hands.

Thanks to the Repugs, corporations can take your jobs and your health insurance with it and hire someone in another country and pay them less.

Thanks to the Repugs, corporations can kill you, your children, and your pets with unsafe and poisonous products and there is nothing you can do about it.

Thanks to the Repugs, America's senior citizens are paying twice as much for life-saving medicines as they were before.

Oh, yeah, don't forget the record budget deficits and trade deficits we are running up just so the wealthiest one percent of us can pay fewer taxes.

If Mr. Driehaus is such a great campainer why can't you find his web site using Driehaus for congress?

What the bigots don't understand is that gay marriage is a huge issue to our homosexual brothers and sisters. They are lucky to have such a great friend in Steve Driehaus. Driehaus supports them, they will support Driehaus.

It was good to see Driehaus open an office in Cheviot. I thought Steve Chabot was a class act - how wrong I was. The Chabot supporters really are ignorant, hateful, misguided, classless, etc. I hope Driehaus runs a clean campaign because Chabot can't.

Don't even bring up the gas issue. Driehaus's cronies Pelosi and Hoyer promised to lower gas prices when they took over the House. Less than a year later the price is over a $1 higher! Thanks a lot Dems! They have blocked any attempts to get gas prices under control. They have opposed environmentally safe drilling practice in ANWR and off the coastal shelf. They have stopped the building of refineries in this country for 30 yrs! You want a debate on gas prices, bring it on!

"You want a debate on gas prices, bring it on!"

It is Bush's fault...seriously. I'm not just using a tried joke here. We are 7 years behind on developing alternative energy because Bush et. al didn't think that it was a problem and decided to do nothing. Do you think that Congress can fix that in one year? Wrong. We dug ourselves this hole back in 2000 when we should have been voting for Al Gore instead of listening to Bill Cunningham blather on about how Gore wanted to get rid of the internal combustion engine.

Hindsight is always 20-20 and man did we screw this one up.

So what's Driehaus's solution?
