    ...than most Democrats... sad, but true!

    He was mayor of Cleveland at one point, so he knows how vital manufacturing is to Ohio...  Meanwhile, you had coastal Democrats who were ready to shit on the very labor unions that gave Obama the midwest....  Ironic, isn't?

    Republicans are a dirty name in the blue parts of Ohio, but their name has been dirty for quite some time.  Unfortunately, the red parts of the state do not have much manufacturing, so the attempt to destroy Ohio's economy will not have much resonance in much of the state.

    In the end, it buys us a few points in the polls and a more motivated dem turnout.... which is good, but it doesn't make it a slam dunk.

    Comments that say "GM workers should get retraining" without SPECIFIC DETAILS about those "new jobs" that never come are trollworthy
