• Sherrod Brown’s Record

    by  • April 27, 2012 • Uncategorized

    A quick response to Bytor’s entry about the first Sherrod Brown campaign ad of the cycle, if you’ll indulge me. The recent plunge in my posting rate here at 3BP is likely to continue, as I’m now the communications director for Media Trackers Ohio. With that in mind, I won’t be eliciting votes or donations for or against any candidates in the future.

    For one of my last big free-time projects, I translated past ACU scorecards into a timeline view of Sherrod Brown’s votes since he entered Congress in 1993. Check out facebook.com/SherrodVotes, and share the page with your friends! I would suggest that you “Like” any of the votes that you, well, like… but that’s probably a lost cause.

    Then again, maybe I’ve misread the readership of 3BP and the citizens of Ohio. Sherrod shares your priorities if you:

    • support Obamacare …and…
    • think robbing Peter to pay Paul “stimulates” the economy …and…
    • want to raise taxes rather than reform entitlement programs …and…
    • support increased government control of all those evil Wall Street companies (which anyone holding shares of a mutual fund has a stake in) …and…
    • oppose the Second Amendment …and…
    • support abortion up to the moment of birth, and demand taxpayers pay for it …and…
    • trust the United Nations and the International Criminal Court more than the United States …and…
    • oppose tax cuts unless they’re used to reward a special interest group or nudge the populace into acting more “Progressive” …and…
    • oppose free trade

    If you think I’m making stuff up, look at Sherrod Brown’s record. If you wonder why an incumbent backed by the bottomless pockets of Big Labor is attacking straight out of the gate, look at Sherrod Brown’s record.

    Not only has Sherrod Brown been a leading cheerleader for every policy President Obama has pushed, Sherrod was voting for Obama-grade leftism long before Barack Obama came onto the scene. This is a fact established by simply looking at his record. I hope you’ll do so, and I hope you’ll remind your family and friends to do the same.
