We can complain all we want, but nothing will change. My sister lives in Cincy and it is VERY RED down there. A guy came up to me, asked where I was from, and laughed....saying, "Your part of the state ALWAYS goes Blue...no matter who runs." It is true. The Valley loves them Democraps!

Let's all be realistic. Adolph Hitler could come back to life, put a "D" after his name and run in Mahoning County as a Dem and get elected. NOBODY EVEN CARES who the Republican candidate is..If they have an "R" behind their names, then they are WRONG....But as Obama said, “We know that our success as a nation depends on the success of communities just like this one. We know that the battle for America’s future will be fought and won not just in the big cities, not just on the coasts, but in towns like Elkhart and Pittsburgh; Warren and Youngstown.”Whatever!

Check out Bertram's article. He explains it in PERFECT terms. Also, when will the Valley vote for someone OTHER than a Democrat. Obama lied to us, our reps lie to us, everyone lies to us....Why? Because they can! WE ARE YOUNGSTOWN!! What do we have to offer? When HUD had the lists in front of them, I GUARANTEE they looked at YTown and said to themselves, "Well, that would be a waste of money giving it to them. Who wants to move to Youngstown? What do they have to offer?" NOTHING!!!

First of all, you people always vote for the Dems in this area...and you always will. Tim Ryan and Sherrod Brown are LIP SERVICE. Tim Ryan gets your votes because he does TV interviews, but he has no pull, obviously. Keep voting for these spineless office holders!!! They are puppets and I knew we wouldn't receive this money. It is freaking YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio....the town that praises ex-cons!

The guy in Nebraska is given tons of money to swing his vote and Jimbo gets jailtime. Guess they liked the old guy from Nebraska better!

Harding will figure this kid out and still win state! Although, after watching this game from the bleachers, Coach Arnold, you need to play more players from your bench and give your starters SOME rest. They just got tired.....

I know Tim Ryan personally and he has some serious "Mark Dann" type dirt out on him and if any of it gets out, it is over...Oh wait...We live in NE Ohio. He will still get re-elected, no matter what. The days of conservatives getting elected in Mahoning County are over....and will be over for years to come.

I have no problem with the outcome. I just have somewhat of an issue of how many cops it took to bring the one guy down. I understand that this could've really gotten ugly, but all those cruisers are crazy.

Why do you people come on to this site and argue back and forth about this stupid stuff. The fact of the matter is this....79% of the Vindy reading area voted for Obama. Did you think that he was going to come in and snap his fingers and everything would be fine? He is a socialist idiot, who will end up making Bush look good. I am a conservative and I didn't approve of Bush, but it doesn't matter WHO was the President over the past 8 years. They would've faced the same problems, due to 9/11, the Wars, etc. It doesn't matter WHO the president is...nobody is ever happy!

The solution is simple...Keep your kids in the house when it is 20 degrees outside. Where were the parents? In the nice, warm, house? I think the Vindy should stop wasting printing ink on such stories because it happens so much and NOTHING is done about it.
