Dem dinner merited coverage

Dem dinner merited coverage

I am not sure what Mahon- ing County Republican Party chairman Mark Munroe is complaining about with his recent letter to the editor. Is he complaining about being accused of “political malfeasance,” or is he complaining about unfair coverage by The Vindicator?

The coverage of the Democratic Hall of Fame Dinner was appropriate, considering the event honored public officials who dedicated most of their careers to serving the people of Mahoning County. Add to that the appearances of dynamic Democratic leaders, such as U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown and Rep. Tim Ryan, and you have a newsworthy event.

The Republican McKinley Banquet, an annual event, offered U.S. Sen. Rob Portman, who was to give “…a first-hand account about Washington politics and current events in our nation’s capital”— more talk about not raising taxes on rich people and cutting government programs. Yawn!

Surely, though, Munroe can’t be complaining about the “political malfeasance” thing, considering I could find the names of only two or three Republicans on Mahoning County ballots. One is running for commissioner and the other two for the state central committee.

As for the important congressional seats, four democrats were running, one tea party member (the incumbent), and a guy no one has ever heard of, who may or may not be a Republican.

So really, what’s Mr. Munroe’s complaint? Where are his Republican candidates?

Two dynamic democrats leaders such as Sherrod Brown and Timmy Ryan. Come on now, What a joker you are. those two are nothing more then little Pelosi boys. Little Timmy doesn't know what he's doing I can only hope he gets voted out. As far Brown this guy couldn't find his way to D.C. without someone showing him the way.

And the alternative to Sherrod Brown is whom, empty suit ex-McDonald's counter boy Josh Mandel? Give me a break.

Auto workers in Ohio are crediting Sen. Brown with saving their jobs and 800,000 auto industry related jobs due to his support of the government loans.

Mandel and all the other teabaggers who currently run this state were against the loan. But they sure don't mind taking credit for the jobs.

What incredible hypocrites.

diogenes. What about all the people who lost their jobs due to the bail-outs. You know the non-union people in the dealerships that were forced to close. A lot of the people who worked for these dealers There was also alot who lost their jobs.for supply companys, paint shops etc. If you take the number of people who worked at these dealerships. Approx 40people @ 700 dealers that adds up to approx 28,000 people. But once again they were non-union so they don't count. The only hypocrites in this whole mess are the gov't officials who voted for these bail-outs.

I am proudly supporting Dr. Agana to replace timmie ryan as our Congressperson. Our district has never has a female to represent us in Congress and now is the time.

I suppose it is acceptable to endorse and justify a male representative for our district because of his alleged experience and supposed ability to bring home the bacon for the district.
As I recall isn't timmie ryan supports providing contraceptives in our public schools, but not a peep from out media.

Being a Pelosi pal is no longer a positive as she continues to lose power as the economy stagnates and inflation worsens

So if ron johnson, romney, boehner, and cantor had their way, the 800,000 auto workers would be unemployed as well. Is that your point? Is that what you want? Direct your blame to the upper management 7 figure executives that made bad decisions.
No mention of the stimulus money at V&M steel and the construction jobs there. Are you guys against that also?

This one party system in the Mahoning Valley sure has paid off. Since our valley is nationally known as a democratic stronghold, we are frequently rewarded when dems control Columbus and Washington DC.I just got home from my overtime shift at the Pentagon Payroll Center on Belmont Ave. Courtesy of Bill Clinton. This area is known to deliver the vote, so why bother to reward us? The wizards in this valley sure have a lot of clout politically. I'm still wondering why Romney bothered to waste a few hrs. coming to this area. I sure wouldnt have-it's not like any dem would ever consider voting outside the party,even if they thought it made sense.
