Sorry If You've Seen This....

*** Karl Rove and his secret donors to his GPS PAC are blanketing Ohio in an effort to get empty suit, Ohio's absent Treasurer, Republican Josh Mandel to the Senate.  Mandel who is against reproductive freedom for women, against pay equity for women, against civil rights for GLBT citizens, against clean air regulations, and for more tax cuts for the rich, is the darling of right wing, Koch sponsored organizations.  HuffPost has more.

Anyone who votes for Josh Mandel supports returning to the failed policies of George W. Bush and allows rich right wingers to choose our Senator. Frankly, Sen. Sherrod Brown represents the working men and women of Ohio. Mandel----- not so much.

Romney sat on board of directors of Bain portfolio company Damon Clinical Laboratories, which in 1996 was fined over $100 million for Medicare fraud committed during Romney’s tenure...

Iranian Oil?!!!  Didn't then President George W. Bush designate Iran as part of the "Axis of Evil" while he was in the White House?
