Ohio Dem Chairman Won't Apologize for F-Bomb About Tea Partyers

Ohio Democratic Party Chairman Chris Redfern brought political debate down into the gutter, using a curse word to describe opponents of the healthcare reform law. And it wasn’t just a mild expletive, but rather a variation of the f-word, Politico reports, citing local TV station WTOV’s video clip. What’s more, he has refused to back down, sending an e-mail to supporters that he will “never apologize for speaking out forcefully against” opponents of the healthcare law.

“Now he or she gets healthcare, your health care, while he or she looks for a new job. In the very base terms, we win these arguments and every time one of these [variation of f-word] says — excuse my language,” Redfern said.

Ohio Republican Party Chairman Kevin DeWine offered this response: "Ohio Democrats have clearly lost it before they've lost it. No one likes trailing in the polls, but Ohioans deserve better than angry stump speeches full of name-calling and profanity. It's certainly far from the politics of post-partisanship that the Democrats promised two years ago. Let's show a little class."

Rather than apologize for his crude remark, Redfern's e-mail to supporters Wednesday afternoon said he thinks tea partyers use obscene tactics against the healthcare law.
