Feeling the love from Ohio

This governor from Ohio is a class act.
Gov. Ted Strickland delivered a message to President Bush Wednesday - don't send any refugees from the war in Iraq to our state. We also have a message for the governor - show a little compassion...

Strickland said Ohioans can't be expected to welcome these refugees with open arms...Though the state's economy is struggling, we don't think these refugees will place an undue burden on Ohio...

Besides, our country has a moral obligation to help foreigners who have helped us in time of war.

[...]

Strickland's comments are puzzling and downright uncharitable. If Ohio can't absorb a small number of refugees looking to escape war and find a better life for themselves and their children, then we've truly reached a sad state of affairs here.
Incredible.
