Mandel is correct. Running on social issues only creates the impression that a candidate will attempt to legislate morality.

Yup. There is plenty to go after Obama with - including the massive debt he has run up, high unemployment, failed stimulus, etc. There is no reason to fall for the media/democrat trap of yammering on about rubbers, birth control pills, porn, etc.

Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel says that as a U.S. senator he would fight any attempts by the Republican establishment to focus on social issues over jobs and the economy.

When did the Republican establishment want to focus on social issues? About the only thing I actually agree with the establishment about is their desire to focus the majority of our time and energy on economic policy questions and NOT social issues.

Just what exactly do you think legislators do? Every law is based on somebody's morality. Every law! The only question is whose.

This guy better figure out real quick that economic conservatives who shun issues like Obama shitting on the free exercise clause will get no support from conservatives like me. Similarly I might add big government guys who happen to be pro life won't get my support either. And if you think we should coddle jihadists rather than kill them you need not apply.

Of course I'm only one voter from CT so I'm used to being a Reagan three leg guy and losing. Doesn't change squat.
