CNN's King on McCain's troubles in Ohio

Reporters talking amongst themselves:

From CNN last night: Campbell Brown interviews reporter John King.

KING: Well, one of the questions about George W. Bush versus John McCain is, George W. Bush had all those Christian right voters. Will they stand with John McCain? Many of them don't have that same feel for him ...

One last state, no Republican has ever won the White House without carrying Ohio. George W. Bush did it. But again, look at that, just barely. A big industrial state, a must-win for the Republicans. The economy is in trouble out here. It's a problem.

The State Republican Party is in shambles out here. That's a problem. And remember, John McCain picked that fight with the radio talk show host down in Cincinnati here. He has troubles with the Republican Party down here with Christian conservatives, with radio talk show hosts.

BROWN: Right.

KING: Ohio is a must-win state for John McCain, and if he's looking at it right now, he knows he has some work to do.

BROWN: All right. John King, mapping it out for us. John, thanks.

KING: Thank you.

McCain will do just fine in Ohio. Many voters don't trust either Democrat candidate because of the mud slinging and lies that were outed lately. Some don't want Bill back in the White House. Michelle will continue to make gaffes to the detriment of BO.
Meanwhile john is sitting back and bolstering his campaign chest. He'll do just fine.

I would take issue with that statement. in no way is the Ohio Republican Party in shambles...that is a gross exaggeration of the facts. they have successfully rebuilt since 2006..

Same rhetoric. CSI and CC are one in the same. You are using that fancy education with your 1:47 comment.

The Repugnicant Party is going down hard in Ohio in 2008. All their little sock-puppet wannabes are going to find themselves without any friends in political office, or without any jobs.

Remember 2006? You got your heads handed to you. The voters were sick of your corruption, your illegal war, and sluggish economy you were presiding over. Oh, yeah, and you had rigged vote counts.

What's changed since then? Well, you guys are still corrupt. You're illegal war is still going full bore, and your sluggish economy has gotten much, much worse. Also, honest people will be tallying votes honestly this time.

You will lose this state to President Obama by 10 points. You will lose 5 seats in the Congress from Ohio (Chabot, Schmidt, the retiring Hobson, the retiring Pryce, and the retiring Regula). So many of your beloved rats have already deserted your sinking ship.

Locally, you're going to lose at least 10 seats in the State House, including Jim Rotten and Loser Blessing right here in your precious formerly red Hamilton County. You'll lose 5 in the State Senate. Want me to name them for you: the term-limited Jacobson, the not-running Padgett, the term-limited Spada near Cleveland, Stivers who is delusional enough to run for Congress, and Austria's term-limited seat, too.

A blue wave is washing over Ohio. The only reason you aren't going to lose more seats this time is because we kicked your butt from one end of the state to the other in 2006.

Get used to it and get yourself a lawyer, because the people running the government next year will have the honor and the integrity to investigate all of you, each and every one of you, your trust funds, your slush funds, the porn on your hard drives, and every other way you have used and abused the people of the great state of Ohio.

People will be voting on the war, the economy, and health care, not Marc Dann's sex life, so don't think you're scoring any points there, wingnuts.

Cover your track and plan to turn state's evidence next year when the entire Gang Of Pedophiles is closed, padlocked, and fumigated, and all you paid GOP hack operatives will be investigated, indicted, and imprisoned.

I used to be one of you, and I know all your tricks. Don't think I won't be talking with the non-crony U.S. Attorney appointed by President Obama and confirmed by a Democratic Senate.

2:31 What are you smoking? You won't be talking to any AG much less one picked by BO.
Got the munchies?

Former Republican,

Let's go over this one more time,

"..Remember 2006? You got your heads handed to you..."
You and your miserable "Soros the criminal" loving freinds didn't do sh*t....REAL conservatives threw them out. Remember? Thats how we roll down here in the conservi-hood,cuz.

"..Oh, yeah, and you had rigged vote counts..."
If this were the case than Blackwell would be Governor.

"...and Austria's term-limited seat, too..."

"... voting on the war, the economy, and health care, not Marc Dann's sex life..."
Then why are you sooooooooo obsessed with GRAND 'OL PEDOPHILES??
Whats the thing about glass houses?

Your rants are way too pathetic for you to have ever been associated with conservatism.

When the Obama Justice Department investigates, interrogates, indicts, and imprisons the Criminal-In-Chief and his cronies, I hope they use Cheney's standards of ensuring civil liberties: warantless wiretaps, torture, waterboarding. Can't wait to see the Bushies on a leash a la Abu Ghraib. Waterboarding the Bush daughters should be on pay-per-vew and could help retire the debt from their daddies' illegal war.

For all you super-wealthy 1% beneficiciaries of the Bush tax cuts: buy stock in a company that makes paper shredders and wipes hard drives. A whole bunch of Repugs will be covering their tracks like mad.

The right-wing media in this country wants you to believe McLame is going to win. The American people are not going to get fooled again. Record numbers of Americans are registering to vote so they can send the Repugs packing and take this country back from the special interests that have been perverting our democrarcy and in some cases our children, too. Who were Bush's biggest contributors? Oil companies. Second-biggest? Defense contractors. Then there were the drug companies and the bankers. We fought an illegal war for oil under Bush and we legalized the extortion of the drug companies under Bush. Then he bails out the bankers from their own greed and stupidity while millions of Americans lose their homes, their jobs, teir loved ones, and all they had worked for.

Losing an election is not enough for these bastards. Jail and public hangings will be needed. We need a Nuremberg trial for the 9/11 plotters Cheney and Rumsfeld. We need to waterboard the Bush girls until they tell everything about Grndpa's Carlyle Group and their buddies the binladins.

Obama for President! McLame for Prison!

7:53 You need to return to planet Earth. Hello? You remember when you thought Nancy Pelosi was going to make changes and bring the troops home immediately?
What has she done in two years? Nothing. Obama won't either but I don't think he gets there. Hillary will be your candidate and her baggage will sink her.
No Republicans will be prosecuted, much less hanged. Get a grip and join the planet.

McCain is too old and senile to be president. He, like most, is a bought and paid for politician by the elites of this country. Want 50 to 100 years of the GWOT (Global War on Terror)? Then McCain is your guy! Want continued outsourcing of American jobs? Then McCain is your guy! Want the economic divide between the haves and have nots to continue to grow exponentially? Then McCain is your guy!

I don't really care for Hillary or Obama either. But we the people no longer decide the direction of this country anyway. Get ready for the North American Union and welcome the Amero. Like it or not.

Too bad the GWOT is a totally fabricated lie. Google PNAC. Visit PatriotsQuestion911.com. Please, use your brain and don't let our corporate/military industrial complex owned main stream media keep feeding you this BS. Because that is exactly what it is. BS!

I'm just waiting around for the next false flag operation (read: Reichstag Fire or Gulf of Tonikin incident) to steer the american sheeple into supporting a war against Iran.

The TV networks can't wait to rake in the profits from that!

I think the uselessidiot should change her handle to 'dreamweaver'. Your ability to twist words and present old failed logic as new and improved makes me feel as though I was watching Fox News while handcuffed in some bible thimpin church. It is however amusing in it's predictablity.

How I Spent My Weekend

by A Normal Person

At 8:44 on Saturday morning, I was feeding my son breakfast while some anonymous liberal loser was posting some senseless diatribe on here.

At 11:31 that morning, I was working out at the Y. I've lost several inches around the middle this year. I was too idle for too long and have had to get in shape to get in shape as they say. Well, I am there now. Anyhow, while I was in the middle of what was probably my most invigorating workout since high school, while some anonymous liberal loser was posting some senseless diatribe on here.

At 5:02 Saturday afternoon, I was outside with my son blowing bubbles while some anonymous liberal loser was posting some senseless diatribe on here.

At 7:53 Saturday night, we were in the middle of celebrating a family member's milestone birthday while some anonymous liberal loser was posting some senseless diatribe on here.

At 9:55 Sunday morning, while pulling into the church parking lot, some anonymous liberal loser was posting some senseless diatribe on here.

At 4:02 and 4:11 pm, the wife and I were looking at new houses for our growing family while some anonymous liberal loser was posting some senseless diatribe on here.

Nice life you all are leading.

And at 9:15PM Sunday night after you tucked in the little ones and thanked Jesus for another 'wonderful day' you decided to bore all of us with your important daily routine. Thanks!

Let's play by your rules..2+2=3.

How's that???

Am I catching on???????

Dear 'How I Spent My Weekend":

It's so nice to hear about your totally self-centered, consumer driven 'family values'.

BTW, have you noticed that we are in two wars, getting ready for a third in Iran, our economy is failing, 4000+ American men and women have been senselessly murdered in Iraq for a war based on lies, the mainstream media has sold out the country to the highest bidders and is feeding us all lies that pass for 'infotainment' and while you were 'shopping for a new home for your ever growing family' that more people have fallen into poverty, lost their jobs, home, health insurance etc?

No? I didn't think so.

Wow! 4:40 you have some real issues. Is there anything about the USA that you like? You've been tuned in to Rev. Wright too long.
You should move overseas now because President McCain will be here next January.

How many military funerals have you been to? Your professed concerns for our troops is touching. How many consumers have you helped counsel with their debts?

You may call those of us who don't spend all weekend blogging on here self-centered, but what did you accomplish spewing your hate-filled diatribes this weekend?

at 1:30 PM, April 29, 2008 Anonymous Tiredofthelies said...

If you caught Reverend Wright's interview with Bill Moyer (Bill Moyers Journal) last Friday you may have noticed that they played the 'entire clip'. Not just one or two lines. Reverend Wright speaks the truth and he knows American history. Maybe you should try reading some and turn off the 'blind nationalism' style of Fox news. Just an idea.

Haven't been to any military funerals. Don't personally know anyone currently serving in Iraq or Afghanistan. Your point is what?

I like very much about this country. I just don't back our current governmental/political policies. Is that too difficult for your brain to understand.

My favorite thing about the US is the US Constitution. Too bad our elected leaders refuse to abide by it's laws and wisdom.

1:30 The reason you don't know military is you are a left wing liberal. You're happy with letting conservative kids who love America protect your Constitutional rights and your backside.
If you would talk to the military, you would soon find out how committed they are to keep terrorists out of America. If someday you liberals are controlling this country, you won't have rights to worry about; you'll be learning a new language!

Mr. 1:30
The Rev got run over by the Obama campaign bus yesterday. Apparently, Obama figured out that his pastor didn't know much about American history.

at 2:29 PM, April 30, 2008 Blogger Cheviot Sports Idiot said...

The closest that 7:06 ever came to the military was watching Gomer Pyle reruns.

Can you say Chickenhawk?

Mr. Idiot Your avitar is the most appropriate that you could have picked for yourself.
You probably look pretty normal out there in LA walking around with your head up your bum.
Be sure to bring Capped back with you.
