A quick perusal of the site reveals that O'Donnell is a big advocate of government spending in most areas. Who else around here likes to toss around taxpayer money like he just printed it in his basement? Oh yes -- John
Steve O'Donnell believes it's time to "start bringing our troops home in the quickest way possible -- that ensures their safety."What is really disturbing about this is that there was no need for him to mention
We have already lost more than 3,000 American lives, and nearly 30,000 American soldiers have been wounded in battle. Countless Iraqis have been killed and wounded.

It's standard Democrat candidate rhetoric in 2008: mention George Bush at least once for every time you mention your opponent's name. In fact, this is so standard, it looks like a form letter, albeit one that has been customized for southwestern Pennsylvania by having
