The Columbus Dispatch printing company’s (CDPC) website has a tab to list their coverage of the Federal Races with the heading, “Road to Washington, News and notes about the campaigns of candidates seeking federal offices,” such as Ohio’s 12th Congressional Race. This past month there were 90 posts under this category, and do you know how many times the 12th Congressional Race was mentioned?
In fact, the last time challenger David Robinson was mentioned in this section was back on August 26 with a post entitled, Air Robinson
David Robinson hopes to bring a new energy not only to Congress, but back at home here in Ohio.
Take you life in your
Own hands and what happens?
A terrible thing:
No one to blame
Economic collapse brings together the strangest bedfellows: Michael Moore and RINO Pat Tiberi.
Despite Pat Tiberi’s voting record which has handed taxpayer money over to no-bid contractors and often supported corporate welfare, Pat Tiberi decided to actually “go his own way” (despite a 93% lock-step record with President Bush) which is ironically on the same path of Michael Moore. We salute Pat Tiberi on this choice. I guess with $830,000 already in the Tiberi’s WAR chest from financial and security companies over the past eight years, Tiberi would rather finally side with his voting block (and just in time for the election!) rather than again rewarding bad behavior. It remains to be seen however if the voters of Ohio’s 12th Congressional District will have amnesia of the trillions of no-bid appropriations and corporate bailouts Tiberi has already approved.
Statistically, we each have 435 times greater likelihood of influencing our Congressman than our President. Here in the 12th Congressional district, we must put someone in the people’s House who will speak for the people. The House of Representatives was structured in the Constitution to be the people’s bridge to Washington. But with Tiberi as “our Congressman” we have a bridge to nowhere.
As a wise friend once noted, “If you’re worried what your neighbors think, don’t worry, they probably don’t!”
Central Ohio residents have been treated to yet more of the Columbus Dispatch Printing Company’s (CDPC) ‘fair and balanced’ judgment. Pat Tiberi, a Republican currently holding the 12th Congressional seat at the People’s House, has gotten the local daily printing company’s endorsement for Congress.
Hopefully, CDPC readers will remember the past ‘judgment’ of the company’s endorsements–including George W. Bush for president in both 2000 and 2004, when shortly before the 2004 election, even the CDPC seemed to know better. In the midst of this latest fill-in-the-blank-shock-and-awe (economic) crisis, that presidential endorsement has shown where the loyalties of the Wolfe family media empire really LIE. Much like Washington serves its lobbyists, the CDPC likewise serves the corporations who pay for their ads.
The fact that a local printing company’s public informational monopoly would find it within their job description to endorse a candidate before even informing the population of where all candidates stand on the issues that affect them most, is discrediting to not only to the endorsement, but raises questions as to the credibility of the CDPC itself.
Question: What would you do on foreign policy? John McCain claims he’s a really great guy to handle enemies…
Nader: None of these so-called enemies are on our tail. We’re in their back yard. They’re not in our back yard. As long as we’ve got bases and we’ve got missiles pointed at them, and we call them the ‘axis of evil’ and we invade them and bomb them–we’re going to have enemies.
It’s amazing they haven’t done more to us.
But we’ve exaggerated the threats. Like after 9/11 when Bush said, there are al Qaeda cells in the US and they’re well financed suicide agents. Well, how come they haven’t struck?
General Douglas MacArthur once said, “If government always exaggerates threats it gets more money and more power.”
