    I hope ALL you poor Ohioans who voted this republican pig in get what you asked for. Starvation will be the new fade in Ohio. Now who are you going to blame?

    Take it from an outsider,. Divided is not the word. Chopped to
    pieces is more befitting of Americans as we see it. Americans will hack each other to pieces and even cut off their own noses in the process as long as they think its hurting the other fellow. As if the results are not going to have an effect on them also.

    After they see what a fine job President Obama has done, as we have
    seen from abroad , Americans vote for zealots disguised as some sort of "tea party" and thinking that Sarah Palin can lead a country and vote republicans who nearly brought American to the brink, right back in to finish off the American middle class? Ohio, did the Republicans promise to bring those jobs back from overseas?

    Its like watching people in the same boat sawing the boat in half in
    order to watch the other side drown.

    Americans are a peculiar bunch indeed, Jack.

    You libs have got to be kidding... Obama and the lib hoardes have damaged America tremendously – practically beyond repair. As is ALWAYS the case, the lib answer is to spend us into the friggin' ground, stating that government spending will 'stimulate' the economy. BUNK! It's never worked in the history of the nation, and it never will. Stupid friggin' idiots spent nearly a TRILLION dollars, saying they could keep unemployment under 8%, though we're now at 9.6%. GOVERNMENT figures show Obama and the libs have spent more since taking over, than Bush did on the entire 8 years of the Iraq war! THAT'S MIND-BOGGLING! And as if we don't have enough give away programs, the libs pass 'healthcare reform', denying the will of over 75% of the people who said they do NOT want it. We can not afford it, and it IS ABSOLUTELY hosing our healthcare. Honestly, I do NOT see why the hard working people of America should pay for the healthcare of others, or any of the other freebies given away by Dems. Sure, SOME people legitimately need help, but MANY abuse the system. It absolutely makes you a lazy as*. Why work when you can get free food, housing, clothing, and now healthcare, all paid for with other people's money? And Dems use the freebies bought with OUR tax monies, to maintain power, as the free-loaders would never vote to cut off their freebies. If I want to help people, I'll give to charities, thank you. Its the same with the union vote: unions are beholden to Dems, as Dems help them continue to thrive, and rape comapnies for outrageous wages and benefits. And the beauty of it is that again, Dems use someone else's money (that of companies, raped by unions), to maintain power. Unions got their $50 – $60, but their work is not worth a $1. Do away with unions, and we America would be MUCH better off. Seriously, take away the freebies and protection of the union, and their would be NOBODY left to vote Dem. By the way, unemployment was like 4.6% under Bush. So, long Dems. Been nice knowing ya!

    Some voters realize that their livelihoods is not a game. Voting for candidates just to spite the other will affect them also.
    Smart voters know this and voted accordingly. Some voted to spite President Obama, who is trying to help the middle
    class. But he is still President and middle class voters who voted for spite will feel the effects of teabag and republican obstruction. Happy teabagging, Ohio.
