    No recall option in Ohio. And you are WRONG about the Republican tilt of the state. Ohio is, and always has been, virtually a 50/50 state. Kasich did not get 50 % of the vote – that hardly counts as "Republican tilt," especially when less than 50 % of the voters showed up. Kasich's approval is now at 30 %. What "Republican tilt"? There is none. People had their heads in the sand and are now waking up in shock. The only upside is that — since this state emphatically does NOT have a "Republican tilt" — every day the Republicans act like this is another day closer to Ohio going for Obama again and re-electing Sherrod Brown in 2012. It just angers me how many people will be hurt in the meantime.

    The reason the media doesn't cover this is not because the STATE has a "Republican tilt," but because the MEDIA does. Papers like the Cleveland Plainly Republican (Plain Dealer) and the Columbus Tea Party Newsletter (Columbus Dispatch) are abominations.

      I see you're correct about that, too bad.

      "Q: Could an Ohio governor be removed through a recall election?
      A: No. Neither the Ohio constitution nor the Ohio Revised Code (ORC), Ohio’s collection of written laws, provide for recall elections for statewide offices. For this reason, Ohio voters cannot use recall to remove a governor."

      Last I knew, however, Ohio was quite decidedly 'pink' to 'red.'  I'm not referring to the percentage of voters that turned out for the last election.

      Reading through the Ohio news today, it seems the media is very pro-repub/tea party.  One paper interviewed only one person for a quote today, and he was a tea partier! I know you said a news source reported 200 of them, but I believe I was generous in my estimate of 100 for yesterday.

      We can't vote Kasich out of office soon enough, he's out to destroy the state.   :(
