I’m gonna echo Modern’s post on tomorrow’s ODP conference call, and the ensuing June 5 kickoff event this Saturday, and the ad announcing it in our sidebar, neither of which include Lee Fisher or staff from Lee Fisher’s campaign.

Memo to Lee.

Barack Obama IS GOING TO CAMPAIGN for Ted Strickland to be re-elected.  YOU CAN’T AVOID IT.  It must have been odd for all those steelworkers in Youngstown to see Air Force One land in the Mahoning Valley, which Air Force One doesn’t often do, and find that our candidate for US Senate was nowhere to be found, so odd, that the steelworkers stood Lee up at his own steelworker event in Youngstown a week later, forcing media to ask, hey Lee, where are the steelworkers you were supposed to be talking to?  Lee, you may want to avoid being near the President until November, but it ain’t gonna happen.

SO GET OVER YOURSELF, LEE.  As the Democratic nominee for US Senate, you will have to stand next to Barack Obama at some point in the next 5 months.  I realize this somehow conflicts with your campaign strategy at the moment, but now is the time to cashier that stupidity.  That starts with this conference call.  Either you’re a team player, Mr. Cheap Shot On Jennifer Brunner, or you’re not, Lee.  Right now, you ain’t.

I’m not sure why ODP would launch a coordinated campaign, in June, without our US Senate candidate’s participation, other than Lee’s incompetence.  Whatever the reason, it’s moronic.

Hugs and kisses,

    Just out of fairness, I should point out that on the OFA conference call with this candidate last week, he said clearly that “While others may be running from Obama, I will be running to him,” and also that he would welcome Obama to Ohio to campaign for him as often as he wanted to come. Yes, it's an awkward reverse of what he said previously, but he did say it. Also, I first heard about the June 5 kickoff when I was handed a flyer at an event by one of this candidate's staff, announcing an event at his Shaker Square headquarters. He is definitely part of it. So this is incorrect. Now I can go back to not talking about this campaign.

    given the current political climate exacerbated by current events (gulf destruction, zionist coddling, etc…) i'd probably steer clear of appearing with any other politician and attempt to blaze my own trail.

    That's what Portman is doing. He just announced campaign chairs in all 88 counties. He's clearly not going to let the fact that Kasich is going down — or teabagger dissension — affect his campaign. But what if you don't have a trail?

    good point, but i think a trail to nowhere will suffice against fisher. ~:-P
