    I saw them discuss this line of argument a few weeks ago and thought then it was a very smart move.

    Let's hope the decision stands until Election Day.  Husted, Kasich, DeWine, et al must be fuming.

    •  It military argument, them, OFA/Obama? (0+ / 0-)

      IANAL, but I try hard to understand, so forgive my asking to have you dot  I and cross Ts when the discussion is moving along so quickly.

       Since willynel referred to Republicans,they may be the them, except you think it is a smart move, so it can't be the SoS.
      Unless you mean the judges.

        The judge used the military example as the basis for his re-establishing the extra three days.

        If Republicans decide to go against the military, it gives a nice opening for Democrats to call them hypocrites, which they are.

        •  I would not put it past them (0+ / 0-)

          They are desperate to keep as many Democratic-leaning voters from voting as possible. And they would just blame it on the Democrats. These people are without scruples, without ethics, without a shred of decency. I can hardly wait until Husted runs for governor. My single-minded mission will be to  work to crush him, kind of like I'm doing now with Josh "The Empty Suit" Mandel, whom the Akron Beacon Journal a few days ago dubbed a "cartoon candidate" and "a Saturday Night Live skit."

          Take the "Can't(or)" out of Congress. Support E. Wayne Powell in Va-07.

        Our local GOP run newspaper was reporting (whining about)  our Ohio Dem attorneys strategy of using military early voting rules as a basis for their appeal.  

        The newspaper kind of knew this decision was coming and weren't happy about it.

        Sorry I wasn't clear enough.  So much going on today.
