    Chabot (another friend) should win as well since the hordes of first time Obama voter-bots in 2008 won't be as heavy (Chabot would have won in 2008 if the same group that voted in 2006) had voted-it was the obamabots that elected Pelosi's pet monkey Driehaus.

    Kasich-Strickland-too close to call-I went back and forth on this one. I voted for Strickland last time-he has always been good on gun rights and Kasich sucked on that in 94 but Kasich's running mate is solid pro gun and Strickland's is not and the reapportionment committee includes the governor

    Obama is making Bush look great. Obama has lost 4 million jobs in 2 years, in 8 Bush still created 6.5 million with two recessions. You really need to get over your BDS. Bush left office with 143 million people employed, today that number is 139 million. Looks to me like Obama is headed in the wrong direction.

    Sorry, no I really don't. Democrats have controlled the Congress and the media for the past two years so when you say one sided news, I don't really know what you are talking about. The one sided news has been pro Obama and how great he is. the actual results show a different story and are what matters.

    Exactly. Obama is terrible. Liberals want to point out the economy during Bush's first three years, but they don't take into account that Bush entered his presidency during a small recession. Any economist knows you can't turn a recession around in two years.

    actually 45,362,000 employed and 6.4 unemployed when Obama was elected. Today the unemployment rate is 9.4 percent, only 3 percent higher.

    45 Million Americans out of a labor force of 150 million? Better check your numbers.

    Interesting, NBER says the recession ended in June 2009. didn't Obama take office in January 2009
