Objectively Unfit Mitt Romney Has the Coveted George Voinovich Endorsement

Filed under: Taxes & Government — Tom @ 3:13 pm

George Voinovich, reacting to the results of a straw poll at the annual dinner of ORPINO (The Ohio Republican Party in Name Only), in which Objectively Unfit Mitt Romney garnered 25%, or about 150, of the votes in a straw poll of the event’s 600 attendees:

“The poll was reflective of the feelings that exist in the state of Ohio today,” former U.S. Sen. George Voinovich told The Dispatch. “I think Romney’s paid his dues, he’s been around the horn, and he’s got all that you need to be a great president at a time when the country needs an experienced leader.”

Gag me.

Actually, that’s beyond an endorsement. It’s a man-hug.

Retirement apparently hasn’t done much for George Voinovich’s perspective. He is as at least as out of touch as he was during his last 15-plus years in “public service.” It was in the mid-1990s when Voinovich stopped governing the Buckeye State as a sort-of conservative and went all-RINO, almost all the time, contributing mightily to the go-along, get-along spendaholic atmosphere which pervaded GOP state politics until 2005 (when a somewhat acceptable tax package was enacted, which did the state some good but was too late to do anything about the party’s perceiption) and which allowed a completely unqualified buffoon in Democrat Ted Strickland to shrink the state’s economy by over 3% in four agonizing years.

I feel confident that the sensible conservative majority in the State of Ohio would agree with yours truly: Not This Mitt Again.



  1. Amen.
    Brother Your singing to the choir.
    Voinovich’s statement caused me to puke all over the place….
    Thank God George RINOvitch is out of office.

    No Mitt you. No more.

  2. Tom,
    This is a potential name that party question.

    I received this as an email and it reflects the mood of the abused tax payer…….

    This says it all, no matter your politics.

    Alan Simpson, Senator from Wyoming , Co-Chair of Obama’s deficit commission, calls senior citizens the Greediest Generation as he compared “Social Security” to a Milk Cow with 310 million teats. August, 2010.

    Here’s a response in a letter from an unknown farmer in Montana …..
    I think he is a little ticked off! He also tells it like it is !

    “Hey Alan, let’s get a few things straight..

    1. As a career politician, you have been on the public tit for FIFTY YEARS.

    2.. I have been paying Social Security taxes for 48 YEARS (since I was 15 years old. I am now 63).

    3 My Social Security payments, and those of millions of other
    Americans, were safely tucked away in an interest bearing account for decades until you political pukes decided to raid the account and give OUR money to a bunch of zero ambition losers in return for votes, thus bankrupting the system and turning Social Security into a Ponzi scheme that would have made Bernie Madoff proud.

    4. Recently, just like Lucy & Charlie Brown, you and your ilk pulled the proverbial football away from millions of American seniors nearing retirement and moved the goalposts for full retirement from age 65 to age 67. NOW, you and your shill commission are proposing to move the goalposts YET AGAIN.

    5 I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying into Medicare from Day One, and now you morons propose to change the rules of the game.. Why? Because you idiots mismanaged other parts of the economy to such an extent that you need to steal money from Medicare to pay the bills.

    6. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying income taxes our entire lives, and now you propose to increase our taxes yet again. Why? Because you incompetent bastards spent our money so profligately that you just kept on spending even after you ran out of money. Now, you come to the American taxpayers and say you need more to pay off YOUR debt.

    To add insult to injury, you label us “greedy” for calling “bullshit” on your incompetence. Well, Captain Bullsh*t, I have a few questions for YOU.

    1. How much money have you earned from the American taxpayers during your pathetic 50-year political career?

    2. At what age did you retire from your pathetic political career, and how much are you receiving in annual retirement benefits from the American taxpayers?

    3. How much do you pay for YOUR government provided health insurance?

    4. What cuts in YOUR retirement and healthcare benefits are you
    proposing in your disgusting deficit reduction proposal, or, as usual, have you exempted yourself and your political cronies?

    It is you, Captain Bullshit, and your political co-conspirators called Congress who are the “greedy” ones. It is you and your fellow nutcases who have bankrupted America and stolen the American dream from millions of loyal, patriotic taxpayers. And for what? Votes. That’s right, sir. You and yours have bankrupted America for the sole purpose of advancing your pathetic political careers. You know it, we know it, and you know that we know it.

    And you can take that to the bank, you miserable ASS.
    If you like the way things are in America , delete this. If you agree with what a fellow citizen says, PASS IT ON!!!!
