Ohio Governor Ted Strickland’s arrogance


The arrogance of the politicians we elect never ceases to amaze me.  This guy is so arrogant in his belief that the Iraqi war is wrong, he won’t even accept Iraqi refugees…legal Iraqi refugees into his state.

“I think Ohio and Ohioans have contributed a lot to Iraq in terms of blood, sweat and too many tears,” Strickland said. “I am sympathetic to the plight of the innocent Iraqi people who have fled that country. However, I would not want to ask Ohioans to accept a greater burden than they already have borne for the Bush administration’s failed policies.”

That sounds like the whole “I support the troops, but not the war” mantra that we hear over and over, only in this case it is “I am sympathetic, but screw you!”.  Here is a guy that is putting his own radical anti-war beliefs above the humanity of welcoming these innocent Iraqi refugees. 

This is an example of when we need to remember the REAL actions and words politicians use when they have power, not the FAKE niceties they spew during their campaigns.

    We always suffer because politics, that why I always hate politics.
    I hope I’ll have the chance to be among the 7000 Iraqi refugees will resettle in America this year and help to make our voice reach many people.

    I like to tell the Ohioan governor, “We share the same pain”.
