Subtitle: The Geauga Republican Party Follies
On Friday, April 6, 2012, the so called "Geauga Republican Party" held their annual Lincoln Day fund raising event. It rightfully should have been held on April 1st, APRIL FOOLS DAY!
It was the usual low attendence, about 100 people, mostly the so called inner circle R.I.N.O.'s and family members.
What was very interesting, was the political campaign sign of Mary Samide's by the front door. The same one that she put up all over Geauga County in the March 6th primary where she got her butt kicked by Ralph Spidialeri who had significantly more votes than her.... about 1000 more. IT APPEARED THAT MARY WAS STILL CAMPAIGNING.... BUT FOR WHAT?
During the event, the IMPOTENT Republican chairman, Ed Ryder, was praising Mary up and down as though he were smitten with her (gag) while saying NOTHING about fellow Republican Ralph Spidialeri who won the Commissioner primary. I thought Republicans were supposed to support other Republican winners. That doesn't seem to be the case here. Why am I not surprised?.... because these R.I.N.O.'s will not follow their own protocol or party rules unless you are in the R.I.N.O. "go along to get along club".... and Ralph Spidialeri is NOT.
Another example of this is how Juvenile/Probate Judge Tim Grendell was totally ignored, not mentioned at all, in spite of the great job he is doing and his implementation of many needed improvements in that court, which I will cover in a future post.
True Republican conservatives will NOT be supported in the Geauga Republicrat Party. The R.I.N.O.'s have destroyed that party. Many conservatives have become disenchanted and left or find participation futile.
Further.... rumblings in that party indicate discussions between Ed Ryder and Mary Samide about the possibility of him appointing her to the Commissiner seat Bill Young is stepping down from. WHAT!!
If that is true, and I wouldn't put it past Samide and Ryder, this would be the final blow to the Republicrat party and another huge blow to the public trust, which is already at an all time low.
This would show complete arrogance by these two and total disreguard for the voting process and the people of Geauga! How hypocritical and phony!
From Mary's own mouth as quoted in the paper after she lost.... "the people have spoken". I believe those words were spoken just for show. If she really meant that, she would gracefully bow out, letting someone else represent the people better, but from what I understand, she was in a tizzy and desperate to hold on to her seat through the whole dirty campaign she waged, and VERY upset that she lost. Seems like it's "all about Mary" and not the people of Geauga.
People like this have no shame or integrity. They will do just about ANYTHING underhanded to keep their position. Even to the point of doing an end run around the voters, making their voice useless.
What you don't realize Mary, being so wrapped up in yourself, is the further damage you will do to your already deteriorated voting base and the Republicrat party. People will be outraged! Is that what you want?
With these narcissistic people in the core of the Geauga Republicrat party, no wonder it is implodinng and the laughing stock in the state capitol.
Definition. By Mayo Clinic staff. Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance and a deep need for admiration._____ Recognize anyone like that?
P.S. Yes Mary, the people HAVE spoken and YOU are out. At least try having a little humility.
