    Especially because they worked hard to kill the High Speed Rail project in Ohio.  They were also lukewarm to sarcastically dismissive of Obama & Congressional Dems stimulus plan and remain supportive of the Tea Party movement.

    This past year, they also forced their only Pulitzer Prize winning columnist, Connie Schultz, to resign because she's married to Sherrod Brown. Go figure.

    Perhaps they've come to regret those decisions. More likely, they realize Obama is going to win re-election and they just want to pick the winner and protect any new federal funds that could come this way.

    Pardon my cynicism but when they forced Connie Schultz out, they lost my trust and support.

      That's not exactly what happened.

      Take the "Can't(or)" out of Congress. Support E. Wayne Powell in Va-07. http://www.ewaynepowell.com/

      •  They made an offer she couldn't refuse (0+ / 0-)

        The whole affair was handled in a way to help the PD avoid taking blame, but it was obvious what happened.

        The PD was unfair and unprofessional.
