IIRC, wasn't it some sort of a corrupt bargain by which he gained the Speaker's chair in the first place, after the retirement of Jo Ann Davidson?
Go Blackwell! We need a major overhaul here.
IMHO Blackwell is the only hope for this party, plus the influx of new Reps and Senators coming in because of term limits.
I hope from the Lake County area we can put two solid conservatives, (Kresnye and Callender), into the House and Tim Grendell into the Senate from Lake/Geauga. Tim showed his conservative colors when he was a member of the Cavemen when it came to budgetary and spending issues, and is a very strong Second Amendment proponent.
I would hope that from across the state we would be able to elect similar Conservatives that would favor a Tax and Expenditure Limitation amendment to the Ohio constitution so that the Bennetts, Householders, Tafts, and Voinovichs cannot continue to poison the state with their tax and spend policies.
Hate to admit it, but the Pubbies were worse for the state than Celeste was.
In God We Trust
I'm thinking of becoming a decline to state. Republicans make me sick.
Black Conservative Ping, as well.
Blackwell is the man, and if he takes on the establishment, the voters will support him.
