    and save you all this verbiage: campaign. Fisher is barely campaigning and what he is doing is lackluster, dreary, and uninspired. He stunk the place out at the annual state Dems dinner the other week. He got his biggest response when he mentioned Jennifer Brunner.

    By the way, Fisher is dragging down Strickland and not vice versa. Strickland should probably do what Portman is doing, since he realizes Kasich is probably going to lose: He's separating himself from the rest of the GOP ticket. But I know that shatters your little worldview.

    •  I appreciate your partial honesty (0+ / 0-)

      but you continue to hold your head in the sand on Mr. Strickland. His poll numbers are now LOWER than Fisher's against much weaker competition. Face it, Strickland and Fisher are a team, and the team is sinking because of the head man.

      Nobody is actually aware of Fisher's campaigning problems except you party insiders. That's not the reason he's sinking fast in polls.

    •  And the idea that Strickland and Portman (0+ / 0-)

      will both win is absurd beyond belief. People don't split tickets that way. Strickland and Fisher are a pair and are perceived as such. The pair is sinking rapidly. Only one of them can separate and that one is Fisher, by being honest about what transpired inside the administration.

      It hasn't occured to you that Fisher is lackluster because his role was never to win the Senate race? His role was to take out Jennifer Brunner. Guess who assigned the role.
