Husted's Ignorance

Over at the DDN, Marty Gottlieb catches this bit from the Boy Wonder in his wrap-up piece:
Husted supported the Third Frontier issue on the ballot, like the party establishment, but unlike, say, Seth Morgan. And Husted supported the school levy where his vote is counted, in Kettering, whereas the local head of the Tea Party took credit for its defeat.
Husted says his levy vote was consistent with Tea Party values, because the original Tea Party was about taxation-without-representation, the precise opposite of a situation in which people get to vote specifically on a tax.
Is the ORP even coaching their candidates on the local grassroots issues?  Taxation without representation isn't the issue that the Tea Party cares about today.  The real issues are out of control spending, reducing the size and scope of government, and fiscal responsibility.
Is it too much to ask that our statewide candidates not sound like they have no idea what they are talking about???
