Ohio has been a big winner in Race to the Top, the administrationís signature education reform initiative, taking home the fourth-highest total in federal grants of any state.

Then there was Joe Miceli, head of Miceli Dairy Products in Cleveland, which makes ricotta and other cheeses. He was the first to benefit from a new law that raised the limit for SBA loans for manufacturing from $2.5 million to $5.5 million, winning $5.49 million in December 2010. Two months later, Obama cited the loan at an event with small-business leaders in Cleveland. This year, the agency has approved 2,726 loans for Ohio businesses. That is nearly 500 more than Florida, a state with 7.3 million more people.

This isn't just Obama, although he's been shameless at it. Through out history, at a certain point people start selling their vote to the highest bidder. The Dems know that. Its why Obama has a built-in base of 47% of the voters even though he's done a miserable job as president. Its why democracies ultimately fall.

THIS JUST IN: Obama's winning campaign slogan:

"The world owes you a living...no matter how lazy, dumb, slovenly, drunk, drug-addicted...no matter how many convictions for distribution/possesion, armed robbery, domestic violence, rape/sexual assualts, murder and mayhem, no matter how many screwups, jobs lost, kids abandoned."

"The world owes you a living and Obama's gonna make sure US taxpayers pay for it."

Ohioans who can be bought by this Marxist for a few dollars....dollars that will disappear, if he wins the election as they are unsustainable, these Ohioans should have their names published and be shunned by all who love Liberty and Freedom. They are hurting not only their state but Americans across the country.

I am happy that Ohioans are not hurting quite as badly as most of the rest of the nation. This article helps explain why.

I am hopeful that they can return to their common-sense Midwest roots on November 6th.

I tip my hat to Obama's campaign - yes, that's what this is, it's part of his re-election strategy. And it's brilliant strategy.

Lastly, why does not the Romney campaign leverage this to generate some envy/acrimony among the other battleground states? We don't have to win Ohio, and it sounds like they've been buttered up pretty handsomely at the expense of the rest of us.
