Former Democratic Ohio Governor Ted Strickland reacts to Lebron James’s decision to come back to Cleveland:
“He’s obviously an exceptional player,” Strickland said. “I know there was a lot of criticism when he left Cleveland, but he was a kid, really. I think Ohio ought to be proud that he came from us and still has remained active with his hometown.”
Lebron James, who is now 29-1/2, was a 25-1/2 year-old “kid” when he made The Decision. Wow.
On second thought … In a country where “kids” can stay on their parents’ health insurance policies until age 26, and where the nanny state’s goal appears to be to do all of our thinking for us, maybe Strickland’s take isn’t that bizarre — as seen from loony leftyland.
