fool me once, shame on — shame on you.

"fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again" George W. Bush 2002

Perhaps the Ohio Republicans should have taken heed to their glorious leader's butchering of an old saying. But clearly they haven’t.

Blackwell and his not so secret backers Common Sense Ohio run trash ads with clear misstatements and half-truths attacking Ted Strickland. Yes Ted married for 30 years is against marriage, (give me a break). A Blackwell blogger famously just makes false accusations one after the other and admits it.

Deborah Pryce first tries to run ads bragging about all the jobs she and the republicans have created in Ohio, which backfires when the true jobless numbers come out, then she run’s her “I’m independent” ads when once again her voting record proves otherwise.

Mike Dewine throws trash that Brown is opposed to tax cuts, when the reality is he is opposed only to tax cuts republicans passed for the rich, but would like to see tax cuts for the middle class. Dewine claims Brown is opposed to terror because of the patriot act when in reality he was opposed to certain aspects of the patriot act that have the primary purpose of getting democrats to vote against it so republicans can say, “they are against the patriot act.”

The polls that came out this week show clearly, Ohio has had it with lies, deceit and half-truths. The republicans are in trouble and they know it. Their problem is, they can’t run on the truth and the facts. So expect much worse, much bigger lies and more deception from now until November 7th.

Our message as progressives must remain simple clear and the truth. Just listing the issues that concern Ohioans is sometimes is all you have to do to get them consider voting for Democrats. Those are:

Corruption…. Ineptness…Terrorism…Iraq…. The Economy…Gas Prices….Election Fraud….Education.
