Didn't Mao take over China, turning it into a vicious communist state, by vilifying & murdering the educators and educated? Talk about class warfare~ Mr. Obama demands fairness for all and these guys by posting names and wages, hope to foment resentment and paranoia. Really hope the audacity of these repugnant negative tactics back-fire.

If they have boots on the ground, they're not being very vocal. The people of WI are still asking for them to help so nobody knows they're there.

I forgot to add, that both the DNC Wasserman Shultz, and the Obama Campaign both said that they have people and resources on the ground in Wisconsin. Maybe, just maybe they people will vote the right way this time. The rest of us depend on what comes out of Wisconsin, the birthplace of the rights of workers. I would like to change what I said about Debbie, she isn't exactly weak, just has a different strategy than Howard Dean did. Howard Dean took a 50-state strategy and went after independant and women voters is Red-States. That is what you have to do to win. like I have stated many times before, you simply cannot believe polls. You can distort polls any way you want to get a certain result, and that is what the Red-States, and most conservatives are good at. Hopefully, keeping our fingers crossed, that good things will come out of Wisconsin for all of us. Walker losing, would be a big blow to them, and they know it. Hopefully it will happen.

People sit there and say that they might sit out the election. I don't care who you are mad at.That is why all these Tea Partyers got in their in the first place, and control the House Of Representatives. Red States are Red States, and you cannot do anything about that, but you can do something about the rest of it. People sat home because they either were mad at the President or didn't think that mid-term elections mattered, in 2010. well-we found out how well that works, didn't we? States like Wisconsin, who are not red states, should have not let someone like Walker put things into their heads, and they should have not voted for him in the first place. What is wrong with people, that is what I would like to know.As far as Debbie Wasserman Shultz is concerned, I like her but she is not very strong. We were spoiled with Howard Dean, he really knew how to run the DNC, and now nobody can match what he did. It will all come down to getting out the vote, in Wisconsin. Its votes that get someone out of there, money doesn't vote, people do. People need to use common sense, if they have any!

I meant to say "tens of millions of dollars" my typo. But don't worry the GOP will get tens of billions of tax cuts if Romney wins. Beating Romney will also be easier if Walker gets beat in June.

I am a little bit concerned about the Democratic response to the election in Wisconsin. I emailed the White House and told them there needs to be some heavy involvement because Barret is being outspent 25 dollars to one. Corporate special interests, Super-PACs, and right winged groups like Karl Rove's super-PAC are pouring tens of billions of dollars into this race. I wish there was MUCH MORE DNC activity in this election. Barret does not stand much of a chance with a 25 dollar to one disadvantage. Where are the resources from the DNC? Wake up Democrats or you are going to get beat in Wisconsin. Why are Democrats always so lackadaisical about financial support. We REALLY MUST BEAT WALKER IN WISCONSIN. Where is the DNC? Why can't Joe Biden or President Obama make a swing through Wisconsin to help Mr. Barret? I am personally getting angry with the DNC right now. Go write the White House and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.

linda in va. glad to see you back sorry about the wreck. I have seen the result of them and glad you are getting better.
The big money is stepping up as the already invested too much in walker to lose the him and not allow him to continue to destroy a good place like wisconsin. I have been there and it is a great area, but now it will becomes a waste land if walker and his stooges retain power. The people of this country better wake up and pull their heads out of their butts because if these people rule this country it will make the nazi government, the russian government, and the rest from the 20's to now seem like a freedom. These people will destroy the american people for greed Soylent Green here we come. Remember it is people !!
Sorry I havent put much in the way of facts up lately, but there isnt much more to be said as I am thinking of what my country will become under these a$$e$, and their supporters can only hate and follow blindly the policies that will doom us all including them. Cant people see or are they just to lazy????

The pubs doing their best to buy another election? Shocker. The radicals are not the public employees tyring to hold on to some dignity in their life .The radicals are the ones spending a fortune so they can downsize your lifestyle. Any time the pubs spend that much money to influence an election, believe me, it isn't for the benefit of the middle class. You have billionaires flat out asking the Governor 'how can we make this an all red state?' That speaks for itself. Low wages, low benefits....here we come. Oh, and you ladies, Guv Walker thinks money is more important for the men in your state. He knows your 'place'.

It is an embarassment and a disgrace that the Republicans are "all in" in Wisconsin and are outspending the Democrats 20 to 1. Where is Debbie Wasserman Schultz? If I lived in Wisconsin I might just be so resentful that I would sit out the election in November.

Walker's people are now publishing teacher's salaries and branding them as "radicals" if they signed the recall petition. How can they get away with that?
