    Brown lambasted for opposing global-warming vote Friday, June 6, 2008 11:24 PM By Jack Torry THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH WASHINGTON — Sens. Sherrod Brown and George V. Voinovich today helped block a sweeping bill aimed at curbing global warming, ending congressional efforts on climate change until next year. By a 48-36 vote, supporters of the bill failed to muster the necessary 60 votes to end a Republican filibuster and clear the way for final passage. Brown was one of four Democrats and Voinovich was one of 32 Republicans to support the filibuster. While Voinovich's decision to oppose the bill had been...

    AP via SFGate ^ | 5/23/8 | JIM ABRAMS, Associated Press Writer
    The Senate is famed for its longwinded debates, but on Friday it took Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown just seconds to stop Republicans in their tracks. With the Senate entering the first day of its Memorial Day recess, the Ohio senator was briefly in the chair, before a near-empty chamber, to gavel in and gavel out what is called a pro forma session. Without that procedural move, the Senate would technically be adjourned and President Bush could install administration officials or judges as "recess appointments" — without Senate confirmation. "That's the fastest I've ever done it," said Brown, who like other...
  • Government-Defined Patriotism (via Dems of course)

    February 12, 2008 Government-Defined Patriotism An interview in The Nation's blog with Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH):I've talked to Barack a lot about his Patriot Corporation Act, which is not trade per se, but it's certainly part of the economic package around globalization. The Patriot Corporation Act has not gotten the attention that I would hope it would. But, basically it says that if you play by the rules, if you pay decent wages, health benefits, pension; do your production here; don't resist unionization on neutral card check, then you will be designated a "Patriot Corporation" and you will get tax...

      Make Comment View Comments Printable Article Font Columbus' Hometown Jihad By Patrick | July 11, 2007 Last Monday, Ohio freshman US Senator Sherrod Brown (D) probably had no idea that when he met with a group of Columbus-area Somali leaders that they were being led by one of the most vocal Western supporters of the Somali al-Qaeda-linked terrorist group, the Islamic Courts Union (ICU). That oversight is forgivable, considering that Abukar Arman, one of my Hilliard, Ohio neighbors, regularly operates among the political elite of the state of Ohio, though as I discovered in my extensive investigation,...

    Mike DeWine must have thought in this press release earlier today that Sherrod “Charade” Brown would at least keep his yap shut about John Kerry’s insult to our troops. He overestimated his opponent (HT Hewitt), who said the following just a few hours ago: Rep. Sherrod Brown, a Democrat leading in late polls in his bid to unseat Republican Sen. Mike DeWine, said Republicans are merely trying to change the subject. “The people who should apologize are George Bush and Mike DeWine for sending our troops into battle without body armor and without examining the cooked intelligence,” he said. I...

    The Columbus Dispatch ^ | 10/15/2006 | Columbus Dispatch Editorial
    For the hard work and tough decisions that lie ahead, the U.S. Senate needs people who can foster consensus to solve problems. That’s why Republican Sen. Mike De-Wine deserves re-election to a third term in the Nov. 7 election. Over 12 years in Washington, DeWine consistently has earned a reputation for integrity and moderation in a climate that too often has been characterized by vicious partisanship. His record in the Senate is a testament to what bipartisanship and cooperation can accomplish. Most notably, he suffered the wrath of his party’s right wing in May 2005 by joining the so-called Gang...

    Rasmussen Reports ^ | August 26, 2006
    Once again, the challenger in Ohio's highly competitive race for U.S. Senate has edged out the GOP incumbent in the Rasmussen Reports election poll. Democrat Sherrod Brown now leads Republican Senator Mike DeWine 45% to 42% (see crosstabs). The one-point improvement for Brown since July doesn't mean much, except perhaps to political junkies gulping down popcorn in the front row. But the fact that the challenger has a narrow lead in three out of the last four polls is significant. Early in the year, DeWine was consistently ahead. Even though the incumbent had a seven-point advantage in June, our three-poll...

    From a 2001 article: When Sherrod and Larke Brown split in 1986, it was a well-known secret in political circles that they parted badly. Statehouse reporters at the time were delivered anonymous brown envelopes containing court documents with claims of neglect and cruelty. Larke had sought a restraining order against her husband. "I am also intimidated by the Defendant," her affidavit said, "and am in fear for the safety and well-being of myself and our children due to the Defendant's physical violence and abusive nature." Brown answered that he had never been abusive toward his wife and daughters. A divorce...

Mike DeWine and Rep. Sherrod Brown prepare for their autumn showdown with a resolve fueled by survival. Analysts say their U.S. Senate race is one of the top three in the nation, and Nov. 7 could end the political careers of Republican DeWine or Democrat Brown, each of whom has spent the past three decades in elected offices.

    May 18, 2006--Congressman Ted Strickland (D) leads Secretary of State Ken Blackwell (R) by 16-percentage points in the race to become Governor of Ohio. The first Rasmussen Reports election poll conducted following the May 2 Primary Election finds Strickland with 52% of the vote and Blackwell with 36% (see crosstabs). Strickland won the Democratic Primary with 79% of the vote. Blackwell faced stiffer competition and won the GOP nomination with 56% of the vote. The candidates began the year much closer than they are today with Strickland leading just 44% to 40% in our January survey. Since then, his lead...

    I have endorsed Bill Pierce for US Senator from Ohio over incumbent Senator Mike DeWine and one other less-qualified challenger. I encourage all Ohioans who read this to vote for Bill in the Republican Primary on May 2, and also ask that everyone spread the word that this man is the best qualified of the three candidates to represent the GOP, and the best qualified person of either party to represent our state. Bill Pierce CAN win in May, and if he wins in May, he WILL win in November.Here's a quick checklist of Bill's strengths and political positions (go...

    How the mighty have fallen. Until recently, Paul Hackett, was a HERO to the DUmmies. He was the KEY to their expected victories at the ballot box this November. All that has changed. Paul Hackett is now the LIVING SYMBOL of the impending leftist implosion as you can see in this DUmmie THREAD titled, "Paul Hackett: Thanks For Nothing." Rather than being a PLUS, Paul Hackett is now a NEGATIVE. Not only has he ensured that the Ohio senate seat remains in GOP hands, the demoralizing effect he is having is sure to spread to other races just as...
  • Hackett's research targeted Brown

    02/20/2006 8:26:59 PM PST · by hipaatwo · 17 replies · 757+ views
    Congressman and U.S. Senate candidate Sherrod Brown voted to cut intelligence funding more than a dozen times before the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, a record that Paul Hackett's campaign advisers called proof that Mr. Brown could not win in November. A consultant hired by Mr. Hackett, Mr. Brown's onetime Democratic opponent for Senate, estimated the funding cuts would have totaled billions of dollars if enacted. None were. The consultant called Mr. Brown's votes on those proposals and a dozen more recent national security issues "toxic in today's political environment," according to campaign research documents obtained by The Blade. Mr....

    That liberals have so quickly pounced on Rush Limbaugh over a relatively minor on-air error, could it be a sign his accuracy rate is actually rather high? Otherwise, would the mainstream media's obvious glee be quite so pronounced? After all, opponents are monitoring every broadcast, waiting in hope for moments like this. So what was Limbaugh's Colossal Error Of The Century? He incorrectly believed Rep. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) was black. Stop the presses! Dog bites man, nobody's perfect. Is this really a big story?

    Hardball/NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    by Mark Finkelstein February 20, 2006 In recent days, Rush Limbaugh has focused attention on the sharp-elbowed way in which the Democratic leadership forced former Marine major Paul Hackett out of the race for U.S. senator from Ohio, installing Cong. Sherrod Brown in his place. On tonight's Hardball, Chris Matthews offered an interesting theory: that Hackett's controversial statements, particularly his unsubstantiated allegations of past cocaine use by President Bush, became too hard for the Dem leadership to defend. In a set-up piece, MSNBC's David Shuster reported that "Hackett's style began creating waves. On [a past edition of] Hardball, he stood...

    I KNEW the DUmmies would IMPLODE before this year's congressional elections set in but I never realized it would happen so soon. The first shot of this leftwing implosion was Paul Hackett's appearance on "Hardball" today. If you haven't seen it yet, try to catch the rerun or find the video on the Web. It is an amazing piece of video. Paul Hackett accuses his own Democrat party in general of "swiftboating" him and the Sherrod Brown campaign in particular of spreading a smear campaign against him by passing around photos of Hackett supposedly committing War Crimes. Yes, Hackett...
