Watch this poor Fox Toledo reporter try to get John Kasich to talk specifics:

He can’t do it.  Four times the reporter asks him, on camera, to give specifics.  KasichBot does not compute.

It’s a simple question: instead of talking platitudes and vague buzzwords, tell us what you’re going to do.

You say you’re going to shrink government…. how?  Where?  Get rid of the Agriculture Department?  Jobs and Family Services?  Disband the Highways Patrol? If its the overhead you say Ohio needs to cut, then why can’t you tell us where it is?

Charles is ex-Patrol, his wife and son still work in the Patrol, and most, if not all, of his key personnel in […]

Strickland on Meet The Bloggers

On December 5, 2005 By

The crew of Meet The Bloggers sat down with Ted Strickland in a local Cleveland coffee house to talk about his campaign for Governor. The streaming audio is available, as is the full transcript (minus the stuff not audible – the guys are working on improving the process).
