The doodler is blaming the Obama administration for enforcing federal drug laws that earned Aaron Sandusky, a 41-year-old from Southern California, a 10-year prison term for running a medical marijuana dispensary.
“While President Obama didn’t technically kill a citizen, he is certainly ruining this fellow’s life, and his family’s lives, and the lives of countless other minor drug offenders,” Adams wrote. “And he is doing it to advance his career. If that’s not a firing offense, what the hell is?”
(Side note: Scott Adams is complaining about media outlets misrepresenting what he’s said on the blog post. If you’re going to complain, Scott, then give a better reason for voting for Romney than claiming “he’s enough of a chameleon and a pragmatist that one can’t be sure” he’ll stick with a tough marijuana policy. Saying we’re going to fire a president for something the other candidate is likely to also do is no way to deal with a problem. If you think we’re taking you out of context, too, it’s because you’ve created a terrible context.)
Mitt Romney should be seriously worried about Ohio. Recent polls, and interviews conducted with about two dozen Ohioans in recent days, show that he’s dangerously underperforming in the must-win state.
There’s a growing concern in Republican ranks, and even within Romney’s campaign itself that the GOP nominee is dangerously underperforming in Ohio — and that was before yesterday’s Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll showed Obama jumping to a 7-point lead in the state. The Buckeye State’s 18 electoral college votes are critical to Romney’s White House hopes. No Republican has ever won the White House without Ohio, and even if Romney sweeps seven swing states carried by Obama in 2008, including Florida, Virginia, Iowa and North Carolina, he still can’t win if he loses here.
