Former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland, who delivered one of the most strident and provocative speeches of the Democratic convention, plays to character on MSNBC (emphasis added).
"47% of us, he says, really don't count.... Some of those people are serving us in Afghanistan right now, risking their lives for Mitt Romney, for me, for you, and for all Americans.
But apparently he considers them to be freeloaders. Perhaps, Ed, that's why he didn't even bother to mention their sacrifice at the Republican convention."
Wow. Shark-jumping territory.

UPDATE: Romney spokeswoman, Amanda Henneberg, emails:
“Governor Ted Strickland’s outrageous comments won’t change the fact that President Obama’s record concerning the middle class and jobs is simply deplorable. At the end of the day, voters will dismiss ridiculous rhetoric from the President’s surrogates and support the candidate who will move this nation in the right direction."
