    I wish that we could get progressive republicans especially log cabin republicans to win election as mayor of northern cities like Buffalo, Rochester, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Toledo, and Detroit and break the one party monopoly democrats have had in those above mentioned cities for too damn long. All six of those cities have experienced endless population decline and the democrats have done very little to try to stop it. Check out the 2010 Census and look under each of these six cities and you will see what I mean. It has been the same as always under the unchallenged, monopolistic democrats in these cities. It is time for a change.

    One only hopes... I think there's an increasingly larger chance that this fall could be devastating to the Democrats... everything hinges on the jobs numbers and how Romney responds to it.

    Although we have a democrat (pro growth) mayor, he's done well with the marginally republican city / county and some of the most conservative counties in the country surrounding c-bus. What we could really benefit from is a uni government similar to Jacksonville and Indy.

    We need that exact same UNIGOV in Buffalo, along with the other five cities that I listed. But good luck getting all the paranoid suburbanites to see it that way. They all scream bloody murder about high taxes but yet most of them still want to preserve the very political setup that is the major culprit of all these high taxes- all these separate cities, towns, villages, school districts, and utility districts. Its ridiculous.

    Almost no point in trying. We all know it around here, we all talk and bitch about it, but it ain't gonna change. In spite of all that Columbus has done very well compared to most cities in the Midwest.
