Remember how the Carpetblogger predicted that a supposedly cash strapped Democratic Governors Association wouldn’t want to invest early in response to the RGA’s modest ad buy (which at last count was half of the size of the ad buy by the Strickland campaign)?

Whoops.

According to Politico, the Democratic Governors Association has lead the charge to form the independent expenditure group “Building a Stronger Ohio.”? They are sponsoring the same ad that AFSCME has running now.? According to the Rothenberg Report, the DGA has invested $1.5 million into Building a Stronger Ohio with the American Federation of Teachers chipping in another $200k.? Their initial ad buy was roughly $300k.

Of course, this has the Carpetblogger freaking the heck out.

Kasich needs to tell his story. Explain his successes.

You mean like successes like how Kasich invented Google?

  • What's the old adage? When you're explaining, you're losing. The Carpetblogger? (yes, i coined it and have it trademarked bitches) sure is doing a great deal of explaining. How do pensions work. Banks. Pension fund managers. Contracts. Kasich did not coordinate them. Blah blah blippety blah.

    Guilt by association! Oh my! Aren't these the same people who are blaming Ted for every single layoff by every single company in Ohio – before and after his term as Governor? They don't care to find actual causation in this case, but are screaming bloody murder about it in Kasich's case.

    Living and dying by the sword I guess. I guess we'll see which association sticks more. Strickland and jobs or Kasich and Lehman brothers and the architects of the near total collapse of the economy. It's a gamble they've made and they just put all their chips on black.

    Good luck!
