Great. I’m in for Delaware and Ohio. Two wins will be sweet victory.

Strickland has really hitting the airwaves lately attempting to paint Kasich as a Wall Street insider. I’m hoping Kasich will address this tonight.

This is so tired and lame. Dems are doing this with nearly every Republican, painting them as “Wall Street insiders,” even when they’re not. This is the big strategy of the Dem campaign, connect all Republicans to Wall Street. The nation’s reaction? “Zzzzzz. We’re still voting all you Dem aholes out in 2 months.”

Hasn’t Kasich mainly been working for Fox News since the campaign? And since when is it illegal or immoral to work on Wall Street? Isn’t Obama’s Treasury Sec. a “Wall Street” insider? Wall Street didn’t cause the financial collapse...the federal government under liberal Democratic policies did!

I was thinking the same thing. He has run one dirty campaign. Strickland has yet to air an ad citing any of his accomplishments. Of course, if he did, it would be 30 seconds of silence. The man has essentially been a cadaver in office.

Does anybody have any ideas for a drinking game for this debate? If I drink every time Strickland mentions Kasich’s ties to Lehman Brothers, I’ll be passed out by 9.

It took literally 10 seconds for Strickland to blame Wall St and Bush for his bad performance.

I have a hard time with debates because leftists make me furious.......especially slick phonies like Strickland.

I'll just pray for Kasich (and donate and make callse for him). He has GOT to win!

Not a bad idea.

Doesn't work for a teetotaller, though. ;)

(From what I've heard, Strickland is lying through his teeth, and Kasich is doing fine).

All Strickland can do is blame Wall St. He’s also trying to run to the right of Kasich on shrinking government. You would think Strickland is a center-right Republican the way he is debating when not mentioning Wall St.

Not sure what if anything it would affect if Kasich was actually a “Wall Street Insider”. A governor in Ohio doesn’t regulate Wall Street. Unless he means Wall St. down by Kettering.

I’m glad Kasich is finally highlighting his work in Congress in the 90s. I’m not sure any single politician was more responsible for the economic success of the 90s than Kasich.

Well, it’s not that hard. McCain might be able to beat Strickland in a debate. Of course, that’s assuming McCain wouldn’t wander around the stage like an Alzheimer’s patient in a nursing home.

I like McCain's other debating tactic: the other guy lies about you and you stand there and smile at him.

This state is an economic disaster and this bimbo reporter is concerned about our capital punishment system. That’s almost as moronic as the idiot who called Rush today and said the only issue he cares about is animal rights.

Exactly. I’d like to see Kasich propose phasing out the corporate income tax altogether. That would give us a significant comparitive advantage over surrounding states.

When I was looking to incorporate several years back Ohio was talking of taxing gross income instead of net profit. Ended up incorporating in Wyoming and putting the business in Indiana. Its a two hour drive but the tax savings paid for the property.

Ohio - you want jobs? Become the financially rational place to locate. Don’t want jobs? Be a typical dem and make sure every business knows your a loose cannon on taxes.

Perhaps Strickland was referring to a well-regulated bar just west of the State Capitol in Columbus called Wall Street.

From a review: I have NEVER seen so many women who looked like straight men from the 90s dancing to miley cyrus remixes.

Kasich is a relentless anti-spending fiscal conservative. OH will elect him, and be DAMNED lucky to get him.

Kasich has always been a favorite of mine. I wish I lived in OH for a minute so I could vote for him.

As Kasich himself said, blaming him for the troubles on Wall Street is like blaming a car salesman in Zanesville for the problems at GM.

Kasich isn’t perfect, but he’s much better than Taft. Taft was the epitome of the out of touch eltist Ivy Leaguer.

I think he can do it. He will be an effective, popular governor. He will yank OH back by the blue shirt collar to the conservative side of the threshhold they’re hovering over now.
