Says "Detroit dumping a bunch of sewage" in Lake Erie "causes big problems" for Ohio.
Claim spoken with some swagger
Barack Obama is "only the second Democrat in the last 75 years to win Ohio twice with more than 50 percent of the vote."
Claim is good ore, despite campaign lore
"There is no war on coal. Period. There are more coal jobs and more coal produced in Ohio than there were five years ago, in spite of the talking points and the yard signs."
It grew during the war, but then almost disappeared
"Since the time of the Civil War, we've made a distinction in this country between the availability and the ability to access for people who were in the military, versus the rest of us, to vote."
They enacted it and Dems opposed

Digging deep for the truth
"Ninety percent of the topsoil has inadequate moisture to grow crops."
Governor getting more support for key bills
"When I started in Ohio it was terrible. Now, we’re getting bipartisan support for our bills. And that’s called leadership."
Wrong number perhaps, but still a good call
"Large phone companies and their trade association have hired 35 registered lobbyists to influence and pass SB 271 (deregulation legislation)."
Claim fails to make the grade
"The (Jackson) plan (for reforming Cleveland schools) lacks any data or methods proven to raise student achievement."
Several procedures, including Caesarean, are more prevelant
