We Have A Chance To Defeat John Boehner Here In Ohio 8th Congressional District With DU SUPPORT!!!!
I'm Workin My Ass Off Where I Live In My Ohio 8th District To Ensure Boehner Will Not Be Re-Elected!
We have the ability in Ohio to defeat Boehner. For the first time in a long time he had primary opponents. Its not going to be a good year for Incumbents and I truly believe that with a little DU support to our Democratic candidate West Point Army Graduate Justin Coussoule. Justin brings a wealth of experience and a passion for public service to his fight to take Ohios 8th Congressional District back from the grip of Washingtons ultimate insider and champion of corporate special interests, John Boehner, and return forward progress to the district and in the state and we will NEVER HAVE TO SEE BONER AS THE LEADER OF THE HOUSE!!!

I could not imagine seeing him standing behind President Obama and beside Vice President Biden During the State of the Union Address!!!

Heres a little from his website about him and where he stands...I URGE YOU TO VISIT WWW.COUSSOULEFORCONGRESS.COM AND DONATE RIGHT NOW!!!

"
West Point Graduate and former Army Captain
Attorney
Small business owner
Corporate purchasing manager at Proctor & Gamble
Husband and father of two

Justin brings a wealth of experience and a passion for public service to his
fight to take Ohios 8th Congressional District back from the grip of
Washingtons ultimate insider and champion of corporate special interests,
John Boehner, and return forward progress to the district.

Working-Class Roots
Justin was born and raised in Adams, a small town of fewer than 9,000, named
for patriot Samuel Adams and the birthplace of suffragette Susan B. Anthony.
An all-American community ringed by pastoral dairy farms and the picturesque
wooded hills of the Berkshires, Adams is home to working-class families that
have experienced the decline of a once thriving manufacturing base and know
well the struggle to create new economic opportunities. From a family whose
heritage is Greek, Irish, Italian and French, Justin's roots represent the promise
of American opportunity.


Justin's Issues

I'm running for Congress this year to stand up for the voters of the district who are suffering job loss, decreasing wages, and insecurity about their children's future. I want to fight for you - to ensure progress, not partisanship, in Washington, and to work constructively toward solutions that benefit the people of our district. Please check out some of my thoughts and ideas on the issues that matter to the people of the district.

Growing Our Economy and Creating Jobs
Rebuilding the middle class by growing our economy and creating jobs must be our number one priority.

Returning Responsible Oversight to Wall Street
Even a revitalized Main Street will remain forever vulnerable to the recklessness of Wall Street, unless we bring oversight and accountability to the financial sector.

Read More >>


Strengthening the Middle Class

As the son of a carpenter and a commercial food service worker, I believe firmly that America's economic security is tied directly to the strength of our middle class. We must collectively reinvest in ideas, values and programs that will create jobs while strengthening and expanding the middle class.

Read More >>


Ending the Foreclosure Crisis
The current foreclosure crisis, decades in the making, was caused by the actions and inaction of both the government and the mortgage industry. Ending the foreclosure crisis will likewise take the long-term, active involvement of both the public and private sectors.

Read More >>

Reducing Our Debt and Controlling Spending
Our long-term prosperity, continued economic growth and national security depend on dramatically reducing our national debt in the very near-term. Shamefully, many of our elected officials have carelessly approved spending beyond our countrys means for years, acting with knowing disregard for responsible and sustainable fiscal practices, and choosing instead to put our childrens futures at risk by embracing uncontrolled deficit spending.

Preserving Our Freedom and Security

The two greatest threats to our national freedom and security today are terrorism and the proliferation of nuclear weapons. Defending America from these threats while supporting our brave men and women in uniform is a fundamental responsibility of our government.

Investing in Our Children and Our Future
Public education offers an equal opportunity to all citizens when we provide the environment necessary for students to thrive. And making a high-quality public education available to all our children is the foundation for Americas future.

Read More >>

Pursuing Sustainable Energy Solutions

The events of the past three decades have dramatically demonstrated the direct link between energy policy, our economy and our national security.

Read More >>

Supporting and Honoring Our Veterans

As a graduate of West Point and former Army officer, I believe that supporting our men and women of our Armed Forces is a duty and responsibility of the highest order. Not only am I a veteran, I am also the husband, son, brother-in-law, and son-in-law of veterans. I will always fight for veterans rights and interests. As a nation, we owe no higher obligation than to those who serve and have served.

Read More >>

Protecting the Environment and Growing Our Economy
I will fight to ensure environmental standards are upheld both here and with our trading partners abroad to protect the health of Americans, protect and preserve the environment and defend American workers from unfair competition.

Read More >>

Supporting Our Farmers

We must pursue forward-thinking agricultural policy initiatives that support our farmers as they work everyday to feed America. Our national farm policy should promote renewable energy, agricultural conservation and development of our rural economies. When we position our farmers to thrive in a rapidly changing global economy, then we all succeed.


Returning Public Service to the 8th Congressional District
For too long, the people of the 8th District have been ignored and taken for granted by our Representative in Congress. In fact, to often our Representative is not even in his district. We the people should not have to shout over the iron fences of gated golf course communities, or all the way to the mahogany-paneled walls of private Washington D.C. clubs brimming with well-heeled lobbyists, just to try to be heard by our Congressman.

Read More >> C'MON MY FELLOW DEMS, OUR CAMPAIGN COULD USE SOME URGENT HELP IN THE COMING MONTHS TO COMPETE WITH THE WALL STREET BACKING OF BOEHNER WITH UNLIMITED POCKETS AND RESOURCES. EVEN IF YOU CAN ONLY GIVE A DOLLAR DO IT. I HAVE AND WILL CONTINUE TO BUST MY ASS KNOCKING ON DOORS, DOING PHONE BANKS, SPREADING THE WORD ABOUT THIS UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO DEFEAT A CAREER POLITICIAN TO FRIEND AND FOE ALIKE!

YES WE CAN IN OHIO 8TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT WITH DU SUPPORT!!!

20. Well His Opponent Is Boehner So I Believe He Would Most Definately Support The President....
I have spoke to him personally and he has expressed to me that he is a true Liberal Democrat like myself but running in a Conservative Republican District during the campaign I'm sure he's not gonna blow it by losing potential Independent and even some Republican voters by coming out swinging as a radical Liberal, he's playing his campaign just right and Im confident once he defeats Boner he will come out as a liberal Democrat!

But the point is its either him or Boehner, which I'm sure Coussoule will support Obama more than Boner!!!

3. A big thing he coul do for his website is to make it load faster.
By the time it loads people will have lost patience and moved on.

It is probably because of the pre-loading of the videos.

7. The first start of the end.
It would hurt moral than anything else. And that would be great. It's like a small victory although the war still wages on.

8. Hurt IMO. Boner is a harda** smiilar to Delay only not quite as bad.
He rules that House leadershipposition with an iron fist. He's already given persmission to a RW talk show host to broadcast from HIS office onelection day, and has been talking about how confident he is at becoming Speaker of the House!

Why would you think they might befit?

15. I think he comes off as a complete tool and a phony
I can't believe a new leader would be worse than him for the Republicans.

It might be better to keep him there.

14. Sorry, my very limited time and effort is going into reelecting my Congressperson
Like in many other districts, Democratic incumbents are handicapped by the unpopularity of the Congress and the dismal job situation. My Congressperson is no exception. Some of the volunteers are taking his reelection for granted, ignoring how we lost city hall due to low turn out. Too much complacency!

17. No way Boehner will lose. That chain-smoking, bar-hopping, golfing over-tanned refugee
Edited on Wed Sep-08-10 04:04 AM by smalll
from the Rat Pack --

will get any latte liberal votes that are out there -- after all it's SO "Madmen!" The lattes are like that -- they take up some moderately-well written TV series every few years and praise it to the skies as the new Sophocles, or the new Shakespeare, and fill up interminable articles in the New York Times Arts section about it.

Boehner is so Madmen. Ipso facto, he's our next Speaker.


Live by cool, die by cool. :shrug: Sayin'!

19. I have supported him since the primary - he is a GREAT candidate and
defeating the Orange Boner would send a fine message to the republicans...something like...Fuck You!

I will send him another contribution shortly, and I live in PA - thank you...

21. It would be refreshing to see voters in that district
wake up and see Boehner for what he is.

But I worry that the conservative tide in Butler County will be enough for the Orange One to retain his seat.

Great challenger, though, no question, and thanks for putting this info up for us. There aren't a whole lot of John Boehner fans on this site, and properly so!

Here's to a refreshing upset victory for Justin Coussoule.

25. With All Of Dems Up 4 Re-Election in Ohio in Nov It Will Give Us Insight into Obama's Chance in 2012
I would have to argue that the Boner VS Coussoule is going to be the most important race in the Nov elections because if Coussoule who has a tremendous record of Public Service being a West Point Grad and serving his country proudly on top of going to one of the best colleges in the country. Not to mention that Boehner is the incumbent and I believe whether Democrat or Repuglican it will be a bad year for incumbents and what people don't realize is that Justin Coussoule is a fairly young 30-37 year old I'd guess, and is attractive as a candidate not only for his looks but for his independent way of thinking which in this district the election will either be won or lost by the Independents vote which I believe with DU's help we can help him defeat Boner-Just think if Boehner loses and Lt Gov Fisher wins the vacated US Senate Seat and Gov Strickland wins re-election there is no way in hell Republicans will take back the house or the Senate and I believe Ohio will continue to support President Obama in 2012.

For years and years thanks to the policies and failures of the Republicans over the course of the past decade millions of Americans have lost and been evicted from their homes thanks to their staunch opposition to regulations by Republicans and the their Special Interest Groups, So In 2010, Let us summon up the courage and the strength to completely EVICT THE REPUBLICANS FROM THE HOUSE, Lets work our asses off to keep our Senate, lets get a super-majority and I am Confident that in 2012 America will in fact Re-Elect President President Obama!!!

27. Did anybody see the Robert Redford film THE CANDIDATE?
There is a bit of incumbent Crocker Jarvis to John Boehner: institutional, entrenched, very well-connected, no fundraising problems ever, and entirely full of himself.

John Boehner is more orange than Crocker Jarvis, admitted.

Maybe Coussoule can pull off an upset in this one, and it surely would be national news.

A sign from above may have been given when God blasted the Jesus statue along I-75 in Boehner's district earlier this year.
