… The Way Things are Going in Ohio [#Elections 2014]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,October 28th,2014

.. I think that I can safely make my predictitons , now …

.. [-] Governor & Lt. Governor — John Kasich and Mary Taylor

This will set Kasich up to be a presidential contender , that is , if he really wants to do so . There is some question whether he really does or not . Taylor , well , she could emerge as a candidate for Governor in 2018 . She will be one of many , especially from a deep GOP bench …

.. [-] Treasurer — Josh Mandel

Mandel could be setting himself up for a rematch with US Senator Sherrod Brown in 2018 . Then , Brown will be forced to run in an off – year election , and without presidential support on the ballot . A matchup like that favours Mandel , especially coming out of NE Ohio …

A Republican coming out of NE Ohio [Mandel] is huge trouble for the DemoCraps . Their margin out of Cuyahoga County is usually cut drastically , and the surrounding counties are much larger [Lake , Lorain , Geauga , Summit , & Medina] and far more GOP – friendly …

.. [-] Auditor — Dave Yost

Yost may end up going for either AG or for Treasurer . Not sure , do not know him all that well …

.. [-] Secretary of State — Jon Husted

good question on his future prospects . May want to try for Governor or Lt. Governor , maybe AG …

.. [-] Congress

currently — 12 GOP , 4 DemoCrap …

the only district that might have a chance of flipping is the downstate one around Columbus , the one that is currently held by Congresscritter Joyce Beatty . it is only a minority – influence district [about 32% black] , and is surrounded by heavily GOP – friendly turf …

.. [-] State House

currently — 60 GOP , 39 DemoCrap ..

the GOP should add seats . The only question is how many ? I am thinking 3 to 5 , maybe even 6 . Such a total [63 to 66] would be devastating for the Dems . Here is why :

[1] it takes a 3/5 majority to override a Governor ‘ s veto . A legislature that is fe3ling its oats could buck the Gov and jam though legislation of its liking …

[2] social or business legislation can be tacked onto the new [or a revision] budget bill . Any budget bill adopted with a 3/5ths vote cannot be repealed by a referendum or initiative (as Senate Bill 5 was)…

[3] also , a regular bill adopted with a 3/5ths vote of both chambers takes effect immediately . It too cannot also be repealed by referendum …

.. [-] State Senate

currently — 23 GOP , 10 DemoCrap …

it is kinda hard for the GOP to add any seats . They control pretty much every seat that they can . However , there are 1 or 2 marginal Dem seats that can be picked off in an off – year election . I think that the GOP will grab one of them , maybe both ….

.. so , you see what I think . The DemoCraps are trying . The Downballots [SecState , AG , Auditor] are advertising , but that will not be of much help . The Governor candidate for the DemoCraps [Ed Fitzgerald] has not aired one TV ad …

.. not One . That is a prescription for a mega – blowout , folks . How big ? maybe 15% in margin , possibly 20% , or more ….

.. we will see ….

… Now What is Fitzgerald Thinking ?!?! [#gigagaffe , again]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,August 16th,2014

.. this has not been a fun week for Cuyahoga County executive Ed Fitzgerald …

.. Who ? …

.. [h/t — PowerLineBlog.com]..
.. [link] to the news blog / cartoon ..

.. I am originally from Lakewood , Ohio . I am also a proud graduate of Lakewood High School , Class of 1983 . Fitz was once the mayor of my hometown of Lakewood . He cut that time short when he ran for and won election as Cuyahoga County ‘ s first Executive …

.. apparently , during that time , or much of it , dumb – dumb Fitz did not have a permanent driver license . He was on Lakewood ‘ s City Council when he let his license lapse in 2002 . Stoopid ! …

darcy cartoon (ed fitzgerald)

.. worse , the news came out that two years ago , dumb – dumb was caught in an indiscretion . There was a trade mission that came to Greater Cleveland . One of the delegates was a woman [a legally licensed driver in her home country of Ireland]. Mr. Stupid was caught in a manufacturer ‘ s parking lot , at 4:30am in the morning , of all things , with this lady , when a nearby worker called the police . No , he was not arrested . But , he took her home , and then drove home .. Without a regular driver license . Big Whoops …

.. One of the agencies that the Governor of Ohio is responsible for is the Department of Public Safety . One of those departments that it runs is the Bureau of Motor Vehicles . This agency deals with the issuing of , among other things , driver licenses . Stoopid …

.. now , this …. Fitz writes a publically issued letter about his son ‘ s cancer is still in remission . All in the same week . Why ? …

.. Well , whatever chance this idiot had of winning the Ohio Governor ‘ s race is now G – O – N – E !!!! …

.. — note — the cartoonist [for the Cleveland Plain Dealer] , Jeff Darcy , is a well – known leftie … you can tell how far Fitz has sank when Darcy is picking on him …

… Ohio Political News [#Ohio Governor]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,August 4th,2014

.. nothing major in the Senate , at least this year …

.. the state – wide races are the ones that are up . Most of the DemoCraps are little – known weenies , ones who will rise or fall with the fate of their top – of – the – ticket Governor ‘ s candidate …

.. right now , it looks real bad for the Dems …

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview//Campaign-Spot]..
.. [link] to the campaign news …

.. remember , this is from Quinnipiac University [New York] . So , it is a DemoCrap – leaning poll …

.. John Kasich is leading Cuyahoga Cty Exec Ed Fitzgerald 51% to 36% … The internals in the poll are worse …. Much worse … Kasich is up big on independents , and is doing better among Dems than this poll will admit . Also , Kasich is leading by 2% among women , which is disastrous for a DemoCrap [meaning Fitzgerald]…

… the Matchup is Now Set [Ohio] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,May 12th,2014

.. well , Ohio has joined the primary party ..

.. no major surprises in the primary races ..

.. the big thing here in Ohio is that 1 – term Cuyahoga County Executive Ed Fitzgerald is the DemoCrap nominee for Governor against incumbent Republican John Kasich . Kasich is a fairly health favourite for re – election against the underqualified Fitzgerald , who does not deserve to move up just because he is making the trains move on time and un – corruptly ..
