Obama's just trying to save his own butt..... If he were to show his face here, he'd surely go down like Barrett....... Wisconsinites HATE bullying and are sick of the unions.

Q: Why has Obama abandoned the recall effort in WI?

A: The Democrats have cut off funding, that's why. They have to do it because they're BROKE!

It's a terrible answer for the Democrats. But since it's true, it's a delightful one for Republicans.

ahh, just two more days & we will be able to close this ugly chapter in politics.

Anyone think them 14 democrats who run off to IL for a month & cost the good folks of WI 62 billion dollars with this charade will ever hold elected office again?

I got a feeling those Brew crew boys will run them clear out of the state of WI. Chicago is close by & full of their type, so the move won't be far, they can go down to Chicago and drive up their taxes & debt *wait* Chicago already has 61 billion dollars in unfunded pensions & a 6 billion dollar budget deficit. And the highest taxes in the USA (?).

Oh, this Obamaland, IL sounds like a nice place.

"The president had 0 to do with it."

I wonder if the President remembers this campaign promise?

oblamer: "And understand this: If American workers are being denied their right to organize and collectively bargain when I'm in the White House, I'll put on a comfortable pair of shoes myself, I'll will walk on that picket line with you as President of the United States of America. Because workers deserve to know that somebody is standing in their corner."

I don't know how you can say that about a state that is so dependent on manufacturing, blue-collar jobs. Let's be honest -- Wisconsin has never really recovered from the early 1980's, when many of the Milwaukee-area factories and breweries started either shutting down permanently or moving, with no other industry to take their place. Between teachers, truck drivers and laborers, Wisconsin is one of the most pro-union states in the country.

Here's the "Hope and Change" we asked for

FEDERAL BUDGET DEBT

FY 2013 *$17.5 trillion

FY 2012 *16.4 trillion

FY 2011 $14.8 trillion

FY 2010 $13.5 trillion

FY 2009 $11.9 trillion

FY 2008 $10.0 trillion
*Estimated

I've had enough "Hope and Change" and so have Wisconsinites

Kind of hard to blame "FY 2008 $10.0 trillion" on Obama when he didn't take office until January, 2009. And Romney, with his campaign rhetoric, has shown himself to be SOOOO concerned for the working man, hasn't he ? The man can't even owe up to being the primary architect of Obama's health care reform plan, which was actually Romney's greatest achievement as governor of MA.

WI Unemployment 7.1% and lowered taxes

IL Unemployment 11.1 and taxes up 67% from last year alone.... You do the math, I think we're doing "O.K." considering

Perhaps, but then, there's this-

<Victoria Marone, who has several "Stand With Walker" signs in the yard of her Milwaukee home, said on Saturday she was worried that the massive union effort could still overcome Walker's efforts.
"Unions ... are like rabid dogs with their jaws clenched down on your arm and won't let go," said Marone, who was a *school teacher for more than 50 years.*

John Larrabee, a *truck driver* who also had a "Stand with Walker" sign in his Milwaukee yard, said he agreed with Walker that joining a union should be voluntary.
"This is class warfare," Larrabee said. "They're trying to pit those that are successful with those that want to sit on their butt.">
(emphases mine)

Looks like a teacher and a truck driver might disagree.

I'm also from Wisconsin, and I already said that I believe Walker will win, sad to say. But I also said that I don't believe that translates into an automatic Romney win come November, unless the officially reported unemployment rate is over 9%.

So continue with your name-calling, you ignorant redneck. And keep supporting those Republicans, who will make sure that you keep driving a broken-down Impala or whatever the hell it is.

And I hardly consider Obama a messiah. He's not liberal enough. However, he's far better than the opposition.

"He's not liberal enough."

sorry, Robert. he's way too far left for the majority of Americans, which is why Walker will be affirmed on Tuesday; and oblamer will be a one-termer.

"Walker - 52%, Barrett - 46%, undecided - 2%. "

Well, that is what Obama got over McCain and they were calling it a landslide. Whatever. I think the whole recall effort there was just plain wrong. He got elected without fraud, he went about doing what he said he was going to do and the unions didn't like it. He hasn't done anything criminal since he's been in office so a recall election was not warranted. I don't know what the critieria is for a recall election there in Wisconsin, but it needs to be changed, obviously. And if Walker wins, what a waste of time and taxpayer money for all of this.
Yeah, there are a couple whackadoodle teachers in La. trying to get Bobby Jindal recalled. Totally ridiculous since he won reelection in a definite landslide. These govt employees need to come to the realization that there isn't enough money for these grand retirement plans. They're parasites that don't want to give it up.

"Wisconsinites are really pissed off...... that's all I know "

And they should be!

Barry held 6 fundraisers last week. 3 in MN & 3 in IL but didn't stop for any "fun raising" in WI.

I can only assume the democrats in WI didn't want Barry's endorsement. All the candidate's

Barry stumps for seem to get beat. Stay tuned
