Rantings from RoJo

;I said this might become a regular feature, but didn't expect it to be daily.

Ron Johnson did an interview with WisPolitics.com and it's full of good stuff:

In the GOP primary for Wisconsin’s other U.S. Senate seat, Johnson said he hopes the race will be done with integrity and not end up “down in the mud.”

 Already, Tommy Thompson loyalists and Mark Neumann fans are exchanging sharp words.

   Johnson added that due to Wisconsin’s late primary he wants to ensure the winner of the GOP Senate primary isn't damaged when it comes to the general election. To prevent this, Johnson urged the candidates to run their race as if it were against a Democrat.

To run it as if it were against a Democrat?  That wouldn't be a negative campaign?  Huh?  If they run the same kind of scorched earth campaigns they run against Dems, they'll be lucky if anyone survives the GOP primary.

“The best thing you can do to get the economy moving again is repeal [Obama's  agenda,” Johnson said. “Repeal Obamacare, repeal Dodd-Frank, roll back all these regulations his agencies have been issuing, they’re doing real harm to our economy.”

“I don’t say that flippantly,” Johnson later said in his address to the SPE. “I say that on some of these cable shows the host goes ‘Ah, no really what is your plan?’ ‘No, really that’s the plan.’”

The media people say, "No really, what is your plan?" and that doesn't clue him in that they think he's a nut case?  Priceless.
