This turd 'retired' because only 44% of Ohioans polled said he deserved to be elected to a third term.

Good riddance.

I think he may be trying to get back at Obama, whom he probably blames for his defeat.

Hopefully Obama and Reid are smart enough to make sure it goes through, because otherwise the blame for a huge tax increase will fall on them.

According to his office, Voinovich has not released any statement on the Bush Tax Cuts.
