Before John Kasich took office, Ted Strickland, a crazy liberal from eastern Ohio agreed to accept $400 million in Federal funding for a very sloooow-speed passenger rail connection from Cincinnati, through Dayton, then Columbus and then Cleveland. One of John Kasich's first acts as Governor was to kill that foolish project.
Last week, FitzGerald and his running mate Sharen Neuhardt announced that they, in contrast to the prudent Kasich, would have accepted the Feds' $400 million "gift" and committed Ohio to running the passenger rail for 20+ years, regardless of the cost to the taxpayers.
Let's remind ourselves why we rejected Strickland and Obama's foolish sloooow-speed rail proposal for Ohio, here. Now, this is yet another reason not to support FitzGerald.
Of course, FitzGerald could still keep his trainer's driver's license to get around the state if we had this system...
