It probably seemed like a good idea at the time for Rob Portman – accepting the nomination to be George W. Bush’s trade representative, precisely 5 years ago today.? After all, Rob Portman, now a famed Birther, who happily laughs at jokes claiming Barack Obama is an illegal alien, is a true believer in zero regulation of markets, to the point of ideological purity.
Today, 5 years later, we Ohioans live in the world Rob Portman’s slavish devotion to his ideology has created – a nuclear winter aftermath of total economic collapse created entirely by Republican dogma, a dogma whose apex Rob Portman achieved precisely 5 years ago today.? This one goes out to you, Rob Portman.? I’m sure this will all ring a bell to you.
