Hundreds stand for Clinton address today in Boardman

Published: Sat, October 30, 2010 @ 5:59 p.m.


“Where’s the enthusiasm gap?”

It was a question often asked by Democratic leaders at Saturday’s Mahoning County Democratic pre-Election Day breakfast, headlined by former President Bill Clinton.

Clinton spoke to a crowd of 1,800 to 2,000 people, most of whom stood rather than sit during his speech, at Mr. Anthony’s.

The former president urged the audience to vote and urge others to do the same for the Democratic slate, particularly Gov. Ted Strickland.

“Where’s the enthusiasm gap? Where is it?” yelled Yvette McGee Brown, the Democratic lieutenant governor nominee. “You guys do us proud. We are winning on Tuesday because of you! I just want to tell you, this has been a long year. There are people who counted us out just like people counted out the Valley.”

National polls have shown that those most likely to vote lean Republican.

But Strickland said momentum is swinging in favor of Democrats at the right time.

Republicans “won this race in August,” he said. “We’re going to win this race in November, when it really counts.”

Polls show a tight race for governor between Strickland and Republican John Kasich.

Clinton said, “It’s obvious we’re closing the enthusiasm gap.”

During his speech, Clinton criticized Kasich, but only once mentioned him by name.

When Bill talks the weak minded listen . The noise made by the wind blowing through the trees makes far more sense .

Often one needs to visit a prison to meet someone guilty of obstruction of justice and perjury in a civil rights case, multiple incidents of sexual harrassment, and a probable rape of a woman based on the available evidence. Undoubtedly, his membership in the ruling class has freed him from facing justice that us serfs would face.

Nope. No need to visit prison. You can admire this politician/criminal at a Democratic-Socialist breakfast...if thats what you're into.

Impeached indeed. Never faced criminal proceedings as the unwashed peasants would.

Impeached? Impeached is to be accused. Not to be compared with the resignation of the CROOK Nixon. Oh Puleeze. Clinton has star appeal - he is smart and was a wonderful President! Who the hell invited Nixon OR Dubya anywhere? No one brought/brings Bush in. He is a loser. Dubya ruined our country, which is why he never stumps for anyone! No one wants him. Name ONE campaign where Dubya was asked to help. yuk. Let him go away and die. America wants to forget him. YUK.

Stan and the marxist looking nonsocialist stick to some facts. Your personal hate is showing. Talk about whats important to the people most of us could care less about someones personal life. If your getting the job done that the people elect you for then thats what were looking for. You jokers act like all the problems that we as a country are facing just happened in 24 months. Please! be real this mess has been a very long time coming. So who dropped the ball first? Who had chances to fix the problems we now face first? The same ones that want to come back and try it again. What will be different in just 24 months if they didnt or couldnt make it happen then what will be different now. NOTHING, people dont let your frustration and fears sidetrack us from reality.

@Aware & EZD41- The problems began in 2006 when Barney and the boys took over the House. It's been all down hill since then. As far as Clinton showing his face here- Ask him what happened to the 10,000 DFAS jobs which were headed our way. Glenn sent half to Columbus and Metzenbaum sent the other half to Cleveland, all with Clinton's blessing.

This valley will never get anything out of Washington. Why should they give this valley anything? They know the people here are too stupid to think for themselves.
No Matter how much crap happens here, the little minions will just keep pulling the (D) lever anyway, so they send the jobs and money where they really have to earn the votes!

This area is Democratic and thats it. We don't need the big guns to tell us how to vote. The rest of Ohio is probably more worthy of the big guns. Tuesday will be very interesting. Here is something to think about--------healthcare and why so many politicians don't like it-----they have to join. They should also have to pay into Social Security and quit raiding it everytime they need money. (my opinions)
