    Watch carefully every time Jacob is confronted with the Rep. / Dem. CFR connection. He ignores it. Run Jacob, Run. Look at Jacob run (away from the sublect)

    Jacob has an agenda and speaks well of himself, though I am not sure what he believe in other than himself. What a pious man he must be! Tell us who you are, oh anointed one.


    Hey Obama boy (Jacob) hows’ ypor holy bama doing in the Polls


    Just go on line and type in Ohio district 18. Jacks not participating
    Run, Jack Run (away)
    Poor Jacob, just cannot debate without name calling can you? Well Jacob I hate to do this but It looks like the only way to communicate with you is to come down there with you. Attention Jacob, You have to strive for a smaller mind. Zack Space is a silver spoon in the mouth Kenyon grad who never had to work a real job in his life.

    Why would Zack Space (D-OH) attend a Republican primary affair.Has he become a Blue-Dog congressman? I think not. Let The Republicans choose their candidate, and then challenge them to debate. If you don’t like nihilistic, bible-banging louts, I suggest you not vote for them, and start a campaign against their Constitutional rights to free-speech. Remember, that Constitution protects you, too. Remember this ACORN motto: “Vote Early, Vote Often”

    I think Zack is involved in this, Alumni, so he won’t have to make any excuses this time. It would be fitting to see him and the preacher man collide next fall.

    Zack does not want the people to know what his position is. They would come to know the true Zack and not just the one he portrays when in the presents of his lib friends.

    Umm, these are Republican candidates for the primary election. I realize that Zack Space was invited, but what good, exactly, would his presence have done any of us? He’d be up against a bunch of nihilistic, Bible-banging louts who are jockeying for position with one another. Whereas Zack Space would be tempted to speak sensibly, his stage-mates would be screaming and frothing to see who can out-teabag the others. I don’t blame him for turning down the invitation.

    Seriously Alumni. i do not believe that Congressman Space is in a Primary. So why should he show up? shouldnt he be in washington trying to do some work, you know for the job that he has.
