Blackwell handed out $80,000 in bonuses as he left office?

COLUMBUS ? On his way out the door, former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell handed 19 of his key employees more than $80,000 in bonuses, even as his replacement, Democrat Jennifer Brunner, said he left her some $1 million short to meet her office?s obligations for this fiscal year.

  • …and not a mention on righty blogs. guess matthew and friends are awaiting their memo.

    While Ken Blackwell may have handed out some very deserved money to his hard working staff who kept his office running while he ran for Governor, Ted Strickland and his Democrat buddies plan to do things like this:
    he Democrats new promise “A New Direction For America”

    The stock market is at a new all-time high and America’s 401K’s are
    back. A new direction from there means, what?

    Unemployment is at 25 year lows. A new direction from there means,

    Taxes are at 20 year lows. A new direction from there means, what?

    Federal tax revenues are at all-time highs. A new direction from there
    means, what?

    The Federal deficit is down almost 50%, just as predicted over last
    year. A new direction from there means. what?

    Home valuations are up 200% over the past 3.5 years. A new direction
    from there means, what?

    Inflation is in check, hovering at 20 year lows. A new direction from
    there means, what?

    Not a single terrorist attack on US soil since 9/11/01. A new direction
    from there means, what?

    Osama bin Laden is living under a rock in a dark cave, having not
    surfaced in years, if he’s alive at all, while 95% of Al Queda’s top
    dogs are either dead or in custody, cooperating with US Intel.
    A new direction from there means, what?

    Several major terrorist attacks already thwarted by US and British
    Intel, including the recent planned attack involving 10 Jumbo Jets being
    exploded in mid-air over major US cities in order to celebrate the
    anniversary of the 9/11/01 attacks. A new direction from there means,

    Just as President Bush foretold us on a number of occasions, Iraq was to
    be made “ground zero” for the war on terrorism — and just as President
    Bush said they would, terroris cells from all over the region are
    arriving from the shadows of their hiding places and flooding into Iraq
    in order to get their faces blown off by US Marines rather than boarding
    planes and heading to the United States to wage war on us here. A new
    direction from there means, what?

    Now let me see, do I have this right? I can expect:

    The economy to go South

    Illegals to go North

    Taxes to go Up

    Employment to go Down

    Terrorism to come In

    Tax breaks to go Out

    Social Security to go away

    Health Care to go the same way gas prices have gone

    But what the heck! I can gain comfort by knowing that Nancy P, Hillary
    C, John K, Edward K, Howard D, Harry R and Obama have worked hard to
    create a comprehensive National Security Plan, Health Care Plan,
    Immigration Reform Plan, Gay Rights Plan, Same Sex Marriage Plan,
    Abortion On Demand Plan, Tolerance of Everyone and Everything Plan, How
    to Return all Troops to the U.S. in The Next Six Months Plan, A Get
    Tough Plan, adapted from the French Plan by the same name and a How
    Everyone Can Become as Wealthy as We Are Plan.

    I forgot the No More Katrina Storm Plan.

    Now I know why I feel good after the elections. I am going to be able to
    sleep so much better at nights knowing these dedicated politicians are
    thinking of me and my welfare.

  • No… but Blackwell’s wonderful letter is getting a lot of attention.

    You know… the one where is he says:

    “Conservative unity won the presidential nomination of Barry Goldwater”

    Hell of a win, Kenny. HELL of a win.
