About that 'southwest suburban blob...'

From this Dispatch column:

The Ohio maxim had been that if Democrats turned out, their candidates won. Republicans trumped that in 2004, notably in the southwest Ohio suburban blob anchored by Cincinnati, Dayton and Lebanon, including Butler (Hamilton and Middletown) County.

For McCain to have an Ohio win, he'd have to swamp Clinton in southwest Ohio despite those
Cincinnati-area Republicans who think he's a closet Democrat. But what if there and everywhere else in Ohio black Democrats stayed home, irked that their party spurned Obama? Advantage, McCain.

What of the 'fishwRap' published the facts and the voters determined that the VeitNam Vets against McSame were right in there claims that McSame conspired with the enemy ?

Now, couple that with the fact that there was low-black turn-out for the 2006 election and the Dems took over the statehouse, the US senate and the US congress !

PATHETIC 'family values'

HAD ENOUGH, VOTE DEMOCRAT 2008 !

From a suburban blob area voter. The republican brand is a joke. I'd sooner vote for a known criminal before I'd cast any vote for any republican. Though I'd prefer Obama, I'll take Hillary, heck either one would be better than the old man McSame.

What if Hillary won't quit and the convention becomes a free for all?
McCain by 5%.

Concern troll at 7:46, spare us your doom & gllom 'convention fight' BS. Once we have a nominee the party will support them.

McSame doesn't have a prayer. This fascinating Gallup poll shows that the reasons people name for disliking Obama or Clinton are largely personal, about experience or trustworthiness, but the reasons people name for disliking McCain are all policy-based:

McCain has pretty well been defined as a warmonger who has similar views as Bush and other Republicans, his protestations and the plaintive wails of the media to the contrary. And the fact that the hardcore wingnuts are rallying to his cause only reinforces this impression.

Dems by 12%

After reading the entire article I would say that Mr Suddes' conclusions are very faulty. Most of his conclusions are based on election results in the 70's and 80's. Times and demographics have changed in Ohio over the past few years. Actually we have seen changes in just the last two years. The presidential election will be a toss up no matter who runs in November. It's way too early to predict what will happen. The days of party-lines voters are mostly over. It all depends on the wind.

The Repugs are going to lose so badly, they will go out of business.

They will be as bankrupt as their policies have made millions of Americans.

They will be as unemployed as they have made millions of Americans.

They will be as unemployable as they have made millions of Americans.

They will be subjected to criminal prosecution, stripped of the very same Constitutional liberties they have stripped from millions of Americans.

Dream on 11:21; do you really live on this planet? Not one Republican will be prosecuted no more than Hillary and Bill will be prosecuted. Watch out for the sniper fire.

It's a cancerous blob, spread by former House Majority Leader Bohner, and we can blame it for most of the nation's woes.
