An Ohio Republican has a brain – shocking, I know!

I got news for ya Jon, Ohio GOP primary voters don’t care all that much about you standing up to liberal ACORN, or protecting public prayer at the statehouse, or being against whatever the heck immoral government debt is…..They think and they will tell you that the problem is a lack of prayer in schools, or gay marriage, or the divorce rate, or drugs, or Obama, or whatever they latch onto to focus their anger on.? But you and I know what the real problem is.

  • Nice take, Scott. I found this part particularly interesting: “They think and they will tell you that the problem is a lack of prayer in schools, or gay marriage, or the divorce rate, or drugs, or Obama, or whatever they latch onto to focus their anger on.”

    This sound suspiciously familiar to what one candidate for President said that caused the right to go apoplectic. Remember?: “You go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, and like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them…And they fell through the Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

    Maybe he had a point?

    I'd take issue with whether or not the average Tea Partier cares nothing for the cultural divide. I think they are basking in it. I see scant few signs at these rallies about jobs. I hear scant talk about them as well. Maybe Husted has it right here in terms of his appeal to the average TP voter.

    Average REPUBLICAN voter is where you may have a point.

    Thanks guys for picking up my ramblings. I think the President had a point.

    I would suggest that the average TP voter is a very, very, very small percentage of even the GOP primary electorate. You're right, I was leaning toward the average GOP voter.

    I think, and the polls support me, that the average Ohio voter, D or R is focused on the economy. Its too bad our candidates, from both parties, can't get focused on that issue and have a good debate about it.

    Teabaggers also hate any job-creating program we come up with – ARRA, state stimulus, third frontier. Poor Jon's fingerprints are on all of them.

    Yep, he's running some kind of program like that for the Dayton Chamber, even though he lives in Franklin County.
