RNC Chairman Ken Mehlman on Sherrod Brown

Mr. Mehlman spoke to the City Club of Cleveland this morning and The Hotline blogged on his comments about Ohio's senate race:

In a speech today in Cleveland, RNC chairman Ken Mehlman calls Ohio's Democratic Senate candidate, Sherrod Brown, "Ohio's answer to Ned Lamont" and that Lamont's victory "reflects an unfortunate embrace of isolationism, defeatism, and a 'blame America first' attitude by national Democratic leaders at a time when retreating from the world is particularly dangerous."

"Brown's candidacy, Lieberman's loss, and the responses of many of the Democratic leaders to the difficulty of the global jihad all add up to show that defeatism and isolationism are now Democratic Party orthodoxy," Mehlman plans to say. "And Democrat candidates had better embrace it ... or risk being purged from the Party."

NOTE: I wrote a post about Mr. Mehlman's remarks on the Lieberman defeat at Right Angle Blog.
