Matt, you know and I know, this is a free country. You’ve not been a big fan of Petro’s before, from what I remember reading. Why does it upset you so much that he went to the Clinton fundraiser? I don’t remember you getting this upset when Nathan Estruth – a man who has given thousands of dollars to Republicans, including Ken Blackwell, and helped found Common Sense Ohio, went to the Strickland rally. Why not?
For the record, I went to at least one or two Bob Taft fundraisers early on in his governorship. I even tell people about it – publicly. One sign of my attempts at being open-minded and willing to listen. I’m not always, but I try to try.
Are these really such awful traits that you have to scold Petro repeatedly and then go far enough that you then have to apologize for what you’ve said in error? Is helping people understand their choices really worth doing that?
