Cranley Kick Off a Success

Although I could not attend, I hear that the Cranley campaign's kickoff event last night went very well. A lot of people showed up, including many former Mayors and Members of Congress.

Below is the Enquirer story on it.

Apparently, one of the only repsonses the Chabot camp has to Cranley's candidacy is that the murder rate in Cincy has gone up while Cranley has been in City Council. Well, it has also gone up since Chabot has been in Congress! At least Cranley has taken initiatives to curb crime and violence. In fact, he is the one repsonsible for getting many MORE cops on the street to protect us. What has Chabot done about crime in Cincy?!

"Cranley campaign begins with (surprise) a blast at Chabot"

By Malia Rulon

Democrat John Cranley kicked off his campaign to oust Rep. Steve Chabot from Cincinnati's 1st Congressional District on Tuesday with a message to voters: If they've had enough of skyrocketing federal deficits, high gas prices, congressional corruption and one-party rule, they should elect him in November.

"For every one of those problems, Steve Chabot has been in the middle. He's become part of the problem in Washington and now we need to vote for change in order to offer solutions," said Cranley, 32, a Cincinnati City Council member from Price Hill.

Gary Lindren, a spokesman for Chabot, R-Westwood, called Cranley's attacks empty rhetoric. He said that while Cranley has been on City Council the number of murders in the city has skyrocketed while taxes have risen and people continue to move out.

"People see through the false, negative attacks and recognize that Congressman Chabot votes in a manner that is consistent with the interests of the district," Lindgren said.

Cranley's campaign kick-off rally was being held at the Covedale Theater - a spot Cranley chose because as a councilman he helped to keep it open.

"It highlights what I have done and what I can do for people of this district," he said.

What I want to know is that when Chabot was on City Council, what did he do about crime. He seems like all talk and no cigar.

Someone should compare what Chabot did on City Coucil about crime compared to Cranley.

All I hear on the news about Cranley is about him putting more PO on the street and clamping down on crime with a couple other members of council.

What has Chabot done? Id like to see. I have a feeling he ignores crime and just blames Democrat politicans to save face.

You're assuming that the situations when they were on council were the same. You assume that because Cranley worked to get some things dowe when it was an absolute priority that Chabot must have had a similar situation with which to deal.

Chabot was on Cincinnati City Council from 1985-1990. Although my memory fails me since I'm not all that old, I haven't heard tale of any huge situations necessitating any large, city-wide action.

In fact, if you wanted to twist logic around, you could argue that because there weren't any massive civil unrests during his tenure that he was more successful at solving the crime situation than was John Cranley.

It isn't that Chabot is all talk and no cigar. It's that Chabot is all action and less publicizing all the work he's done to make the First Congressional District a better place to live.

Two points:

"In fact, if you wanted to twist logic around, you could argue that because there weren't any massive civil unrests during his tenure that he was more successful at solving the crime situation than was John Cranley."

That's the same as saying, since Hoover didn't have to deal with enemy invasions, he did a better job at securing the borders than FDR... Come on!

"It isn't that Chabot is all talk and no cigar. It's that Chabot is all action and less publicizing all the work he's done to make the First Congressional District a better place to live."

I would like to see examples of how Chabot has used his status as a federal lawmaker to specifically make the 1st-D a better place to live.... All talk.
