Jon Husted....becoming famous for blocking the Ohio vote....he is the one who fired the 2 Montgomery County Board of Election members....Tom Ritchie and Dennis Lieberman....featured on MSNBC...Rachel Maddows Show...

Yea...Jon and Dennis have been opposing forces for ...years.

Dennis is the Jedi knight.

to demonstrate how the private sector can provide disaster aid.

No matter what they raise, it won't be enough to be meaningful. That's what FEMA is for.

I've heard estimates of 300 million or more. He certainly could cough up whatever sum might be raised by such an 'event' without sweating. But then again, that wouldn't be the point, would it?

31. We have high wind warnings...but more for the central/eastern part of the state

 

..yet, it's been messy here.

Very windy in Columbus...I lifted all yard signs so they wouldn't fly off and hurt someone/something and put oil in mom's generator.

If it's so windy here, I can't imagine the damage in NY and NJ and other eastern states.

I don't think Dayton people are NASCAR people...but I guess they infiltrated everywhere, possibly.

Goddess, I want this RobMe dude sent straight to hell along w/ his 5 widdle boyz.

Let him make a fool of himself! I don't see this decision as 'leader'....do you? Nascar dude while people are suffering???

Just another sociopath in politics.

Wish I could just follow him around my state (Ohio) with a big sign reading, "Write a check, asshole."

I'm new here, so I don't know if that's appropriate. Guess I'll find out tomorrow.

42. This was a previously scheduled/canceled Tuesday campaign event.

Previously scheduled for Tuesday, in Kettering, OH, with Petty and Owen appearing. They're importing Ryan from Colorado at the last minute and relabeling this a "storm relief" event. What a prick. They're going to ask the public to bring canned goods. Just what the Red Cross needs, the logistics of moving canned goods around, when they've asked for $10 donations and made it real simple to donate via the web or your cellphone. What, Rmoney and Ryan going to load up the buses with boxes of donations and drive them to the hardest hit areas and Queen Ann wll hand out the goods?

We MUST win - I never want to lay eyes on him again! Ryan has sure backed off his supposed "core" beliefs. I think they should both self-deport to some distant planet! Is the "star" Hank Williams Jr by any chance?

All the yaa-hoos have his car # on the back windows of their pickups. I don't know if it's #3, #5, #8, or what. One belonged to the driver that died on track a few years back. I don't keep track of this, no interest.
