Michelle Schneider bitter still at Shannon Jones

Dear fellow tax hikers, for our Michelle Schneider the bitterness of her landslide loss to State Senator Shannon Jones has not subsided.  And nor should it.  Michelle obeyed party leaders faithfully.  She raised taxes on command.  When that Senate seat opened up, it was Michelle's turn to commandeer it.  She was entitled to that seat!  Nobody had the right to take Michelle Schneider's seat from her, not Shannon Jones and especially not the stupid voters. 

Recently Senator Jones saw her bill to reform collective bargaining pass the Ohio Senate.  We strongly opposed this bill because we want the unions, not elected officials, deciding how to spend taxpayer dollars.  Our Michelle Schneider never would have written this bill!  She probably wouldn't have even voted for it.  Michelle would be raising taxes right now, not reforming collective bargaining.

So we are very proud of our Michelle for taking the opportunity to criticize Shannon Jones in The Enquirer's first article about her since the bill's passage.

Tempted by the prospect of an open state Senate seat, Jones elbowed her way past her political mentor and Columbus roommate, former Rep. Michelle Schneider of Madeira, despite what Schneider insists were Jones' repeated assurances to "never, never run against" her.

"She stabbed me in the back," Schneider said. "Some friend."

We are proud of Michelle Schneider's bitterness.  She should be bitter.  We are bitter.  All you tax hikers should be bitter too.   You'll really be bitter when Shannon's efforts keep our taxes from being raised.  

This was Michelle Schneider's seat.  She was entitled to get the Senate appointment.  She was entitled to run unopposed in the Republican Primary.  She was entitled to run unopposed in the general election.  Shannon Jones had no right to run for and win this seat.  And the voters had no right to deny Michelle what was hers.  Shame on a system that would allow this injustice to happen.

We have to give Senator Seitz credit where credit is due! Way to take a stand against the taxpayers and for the unions on Senate Bill 5.

Does Republicans for Higher Taxes have a sore loser award? If so Michelle deserves it. Call Betty Montgomery, take a trip together to the Golden Corral, and GET OVER IT!

I feel Michelle's pain. She did the right thing raising all those taxes. She should have been rewarded for it and instead she lost her next election!

I'm bitter too. I've raised every tax imaginable in Blue Ash and now I've got an opponent. I shouldn't have to have competition for MY seat. I'm entitled to run unopposed as a reward for all the taxes I've raised.

I'm with my good friend Michelle. The voters should be ashamed of themselves for not rewarding her for all her tax increases.

Say, did you guys hear about the brand new abortion clinic I brought to Sharonville?

I fully support Michelle Schneider. She was a "rock-ribbed" conservative in the Ohio House. Pay no attention to the fact that she voted for every single one of Bob Taft's tax hikes and every single one of his disasterous budgets. My support for Michelle is just as strong as my support for any number of other gigantic tax hiking RINOs like Si Leis and Bill Seitz

What about me? I'm special, Willie flirts with me.

Awesome remarks!

Kasich called out Willie as a wolf in sheeps clothing.

It's easy to rant and rave on the radio as a "conservative". The true test is when the rubber meets the road. Kasich passed and Willie fails.
