This is depressing:

Here’s a pro-tip, if you’re going to write a blog post titled “OH Sen. Brown’s Dimwitted Remarks Over Oil Spill,” then at least find something dim witted about Senator Brown’s remarks.

Instead, “One Oar in the Water” says in response:

Maybe we should explore the effects of big government on the environment and energy industry? Maybe we should explore the lack of oversight Congress failed to exhibit all these years over the energy industry?

These are just a few questions Senator Brown might want to ask, but surely the oil spill in the gulf points to too much […]

Well, that didn’t take long.  I now know why Rob Portman has been entirely silent about the BP spill in the Gulf of Mexico– he’s been paid well to keep quiet about it.

Despite running in a Midwestern state not known for having a vibrant oil industry, Rob Portman has accepted over $125,000 from the oil and gas industries’ PACs. Specifically, Portman has already accepted several thousands of dollars from Halliburton’s PAC.  In fact, Portman’s campaign most recently accepted $1,000 from Hailliburton’s PAC as recently as May 3rd when the national media began to question Halliburton’s role in […]

The Carpetblogger’s continues his streak of being a cheerleader for failure.  Now, he’s attacking a favorable jobs report before it’s even been released!

Jon Keeling hates Democrats so much he cannot cheer good economic news if it doesn’t benefit his party.  It’s sickening.  What did Keeling have to say about the fact that Ohio is leading the nation in job creation last month…. Let me refresh your memory:

Now, he’s complaining that Friday’s job report is going to inflated by some 400,000 temporary Census jobs.

I’ve got news for Keeling, the economy doesn’t care why people […]

Lt. Gov./Democratic nominee Lee Fisher, via e-mail, is attacking the Republicans in the Senator for opposing Democratic efforts to raise (note: not eliminate) the caps on oil companies like BP responsible for catastrophic spills.

It is outrageous that Republicans would fight to cap oil company liability and accountability before the spill itself has even been capped.

If oil companies don’t pay to clean up this spill, who do you think will? Taxpayers.

Incidents like this are what make it seem like there’s one set of rules for the big guys and a whole other set for hardworking regular people.

John Kasich is a career politician.  Even during his eight years with Lehman Brothers, he continued to write his political books and improve his national political exposure on Fox News.  Like most career politicians (who’s only “private” experience is with Fox News (ha!) and a company that was driven into the largest bankruptcy in the history of America), Kasich has the annoying habit of telling what he thinks his audience wants to hear.

Here’s John Kasich apologizing to a Tea Party rally crowd for voting in favor of the 1994 assault weapons ban:

Here’s John Kasich in 2006 on the Colbert Report dismissing the gay marriage amendment as a significant factor in the 2004 Presidential election:

As seen on Twitter:

Extreme Greenies:see now why we push”drill,baby,drill”of known reserves&promising finds in safe onshore places like ANWR? Now do you get it?

As if ecological disasters only happened in offshore drilling. Besides, Palin completely misunderstands the argument against continued drilling; oil is a limited resource, and we need to be reducing our consumption of it, not increasing it. There are lots of useful things we should be conserving the oil for, and we should be replacing it where possible with more sustainable alternatives.

BTW, for those of you on Twitter, I recommend following BPGlobalPR, a […]
