We’re tired of being told that we’re stupid Americans, and that we need that disc jockey in Washington and his cronies making decisions for us. Obama and his gang are absolutely horrible on just about every subject: economics, foreign policy… you name it.

In Ohio, we can’t wait to see the RINO, Voinovich, move his rear end back to Cleveland. I’m assuming that Rob Portman will be much more representative of the tax paying citizens of Ohio.

Is the cartoon below the more accurate assessment?
