  •  Asian carp? (1+ / 0-)

    Seriously? THAT was the big issue? Jeez. No, it's not some huge issue that "Dems and Obama are sleeping on." It's not an issue up here in Cleveland at all. It's barely on anyone's radar, and it's fairly complicated and not some huge, looming danger the way it's been made out to be by some alarmists. If all Portman did was "smack Fisher around" about this issue, the debate must have been a real snooze and not much of a mind-changer or victory for anyone.

    •  I was so surprised by your concern (0+ / 0-)

      abut Asian carp that I went and looked up what was going on. Basically nothing. They are still talking about that one carp that got through the electric gates into Lake Michigan that my paper wrote about last year. Nothing further has happened. The issue is totally off the local radar in ohio. But Obama appointed an Asian carp director last month to prevent anything from happening, so Portman is lying his ass off if he did indeed whine about Democrats and Obama not doing anything about this singularly unpressing issue. If this was indeed the tenor of the debate, what a shame they couldn't have talked about things that actually matter to Ohioans.

      I just don't even want to watch the debate because it's depressing. Maybe if Lee Fisher had condescended to acknowledge Jennifer Brunner's existence and debate her during the primary, he might be better prepared.
