Did Obama's lack of involvement help lose Wisconsin? Did he give this one away to the GOP by not getting involved?

Captain says:
Last year, when angry protesters filled the streets of Madison, Wis., denouncing Gov. Scott Walker's plan to curtail some union collective bargaining powers, President Obama was eager to associate himself with the union cause. "Some of what I've heard coming out of Wisconsin, where they're just making it harder for public employees to collectively bargain generally, seems like more of an assault on unions," Obama told a Milwaukee TV reporter in February 2011.

Now, it's just days until voters decide whether to recall Walker -- an effort started, maintained and financed by the unions. If the polls are correct, Walker, who is being challenged by Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, seems headed toward keeping his job. And now, the president is not only no longer talking about Wisconsin, he's actually seeking to distance himself from next week's likely Democratic defeat.

Because Walker is inbred.

No one want that clown in their corner~!! Do you blame them? Wisconsinites want low taxes and Hates bullying

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

FEDERAL 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

Wisconsin has had enough Obama "Hope and Change"

WI Unemployment rate 7.1% AND LOWERED Taxes AND Balanced Budget...... Now that's Hope and Change

Obama's Home State

IL 11.1% unemployment rate State Taxes up 67% last year alone and Home to out of control public union spending , corruption and high taxes

Wisconsinite certainly don't want this to happen here.
