Just like every other week, today we got the latest poll from Rasmussen which essentially confirms what the latest Fox News poll said: this is a 5-7 point race, not a race where Kasich has a double-digit lead like the bipartisanly mocked Dispatch poll has claimed.

Two weeks ago, just as Strickland was beginning to go back on the air after giving the airwaves exclusively to Kasich and the RGA for six straight weeks of constant ads, Rasmussen showed Kasich with a 52% to 40% lead when leaners were included.  A twelve-point lead.

Little over one […]

Here’s what Governor Strickland and Congressman Kasich said about outsourcing in last night’s debate (Source: ONN/WBNS TV Channel 10)


Except John Kasich knows that Ohio has lost jobs to China… because he’s voted on corporate boards to ship Ohio manufacturing jobs overseas.

John Kasich lied last night to the people of Ohio.  The only question is will anyone in the media call Kasich out on it.

Apparently, Jon Keeling and Kasich’s “Tweetleaders for Failure” believes that one outsourced low wage call center that was used to administer a program that saved hundreds, if not thousands, of high paying Whirlpool and other appliance manufacturing jobs in Ohio equals Strickland to Kasich’s record on outsourcing.

Seriously?  You want to throw down on that?

I’ll take that fight.



Kasich voted, willingly, for trade deals with China that are estimated to have cost Ohio 90,000 jobs.   Ted Strickland voted no, saying it would cost Ohio jobs.

John Kasich voted, intentionally, for the […]

China Cheats and We Lose Jobs

On November 19, 2009 By

I had to skip my second night with the Palin book to attend (and work at) a town hall meeting in Baltimore about U.S. manufacturing policy, or rather, the need for a U.S. manufacturing policy.

I’ve been working on this issue for a while but I finally understood more about why U.S. manufacturing has declined so significantly. I always understood that China was part of the problem, but I just assumed it was because they were winning in the market place: they could make and sell products more cheaply than we could. I thought this was only because they paid […]

…and they’ll probably buy it hook line and sinker. This ad looks and sounds great.

But like so many other Hillary strategies, the finger that she is trying to point is actually toward a mirror that reflects right back at her. Those jobs lost when Magnaquench moved to China? Happened on hubby Bill’s watch:

In the ad, the candidate notes that President Bush could have stopped the shutdown, but didn’t. Ironically, the initial sale of Magnaquench — to a group of investors that included two Chinese companies — occurred in 1995, when the president was Sen. […]

John McCain makes a statement on China and the Olympics today. So that’s basically every single candidate for President speaking out against China. Good stuff. I’ve highlighted the surprises from McCain below. I’m not sure you can characterize this as him jumping on a political bandwagon unless he’s trying to score points with moderates. He certainly won’t endear himself to the likes of Keeler and other “conservatives” with this seeming support for an issue a bunch of “jobless professional protestors” have taken up:

“Our relationship with China is important, and we value our ability to cooperate with the Chinese […]
