Brown, Mandel call each other liars, then things got ugly tonight



Published: Thu, October 18, 2012 @ 9:53 p.m.

COLUMBUS

Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown said his Republican opponent has “fallen far short on the honesty and integrity quotient.”

GOP state Treasurer Josh Mandel called the incumbent a liar who represents everything that’s wrong in Washington.

And then things got ugly.

“Josh Mandel, as we know, has trouble telling the truth,” Brown said. “We just can’t trust Josh Mandel to tell the truth. We can’t trust Josh Mandel to do his job. We just can’t trust Josh Mandel to show up for work. We can’t trust Josh Mandel not to hire his cronies....”

Mandel responded, “The senator was just asked about bipartisanship. And instead of answering the question, he went on the attack on me. ... He did not offer one bipartisan proposal.”

Both candidates offered pointed comments during the second of three debates Thursday in Columbus in what has become one of the most heated statewide races in Ohio.

They were asked about trade and tax policies, the federal auto bailout, Obamacare and other issues that have been common themes throughout the campaign.

Read some of what they said in Friday's Vindicator or on Vindy.com.

The main thing that concerns me about Mandel is that all his ads are run by out of state PACS. I have yet to see him do a single ad. He needs to speak for himself.

Mandel has been groomed for consistently higher public office in Ohio by the most rabidly right-wing forces in our nation. As a puppet for the parasitic 1%, Representative and Treasurer Mandel were disasters for Ohio; a warmongering US Senator Mandel would be a catastrophe for We The People.

I am glad I got to see the debate last night. Mandel was clearly the winner. To vote for Brown is clearly a vote for the same old policies that he has previously approved. We need a change in D.C. and Mandel is clearly the man to chose. Lets hope to see a change in Washington and a turn around for the economy in the U.S.

With Brown and Obama all we see is more spending, bigger government and more regulations, which requires higher taxes to pay for it all.

Not only has our income been impacted by these policies, we are being faced with new health care rules and regulations, which will impact our employers. Some of our employers have already begun the process of reducing costs in order to pay for these increases and tax proposals. You will see many people being moved to part time employment status, because these moves are already in discussion in businesses across the nation.

If you vote for Brown and you vote for Obama you will see employment drop and many, many employees getting their hours cut to 20 or 30 hours a week. This would be a drastic cut in pay for many of us.

There is only so much money going around. If you increase taxes to businesses, they will have to reduce costs somewhere in order to pay for the increases and payroll is the easiest because consumers will not accept any further price increases.

Think before you vote. Are you really helping yourself or your family, or have you succumb to the rhetoric of a 4 year old failing policy, which requires more borrowed money to keep it going?
