Another Democrat (Ted Strickland) ousted by voter anger in 2010. Another Republican governor coming in slashing and burning. Promises no tax increases, plans to get rid of Ohio income tax.
Oh -- and did I mention John Kasich (rhymes with "Basic") comes to the position from Lehmann Brothers and Fox News?
Are we going to see the exact same scenario as WI played out in every with a Republican governor?
When are the JOBS arriving????

I live in Ohio and yes, it was all about jobs during the election. Now it's all about, well, returning to the 19th Century. The new Attorney General, Mike DeWine's (former Republican Senator - Ohio) first order of business was to file suit against the Federal government over healthcare reform.
Kasich talks a good game, but he is your typical Republican idealogue. The "jobs issue" was just smoke and mirrors. This state is a mixed bag of tricks - solidly white collar, service sector in the center and solid "rust-belt" everywhere else.
If you want a good read, do some research on Kasich's theories on public education - it goes much deeper than union busting.
I agree with both of you totally. What's worse is the American people are not being told the truth about the pensions. There is no doubt that the state's find themselves with a shortfall in the pension accounts, but it because of their own inept policy making and practices, along with failed investments on Wall Street.
The saddest part of all this to me is that the American people understand so little about what is going on, they direct their ire at the wrong targets...one another. This is not a partisan problem, it's a middle class America problem.
