View Diary: How Obama can lose November (63 comments)

  •  So the fact that Obama (16+ / 0-)

    has tasked his entire Wisconsin re-election team All 60 OFA offices, every OFA volunteer and staffer to work on recalling Walker is not good enough for you? I am sorry this complaint about Obama not coming to Wisconsin is starting to sound more and more like a whine than someone actually thinking about the cost benefit of such a move for either Bennett or Obama.

      but there is no sense in WI among the general public that Obama has strongly backed Barrett, or done anything significant for him.  

      Last year, marching in Madison week after week, we remarked on the absence of any support from the Dem Party, while the support for Walker of outside-of-state forces, particularly financial, has been enormous from then to now.

      Of course, Obama DID tweet his support for Barrett yesterday.

        sense and reality are not the same. As is often the case.

          not the latter.

          What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.

            who benefits more by this meme that Obama isn't helping Bennett, that he was abandoned by his own party even though it obviously not true? So who really started this line of BS.

              party apologists like yourself should at least be able to spell the name of the Dem candidate.

            •  who benefits from the meme that McConnell (0+ / 0-)

              fathered Ann Coulter's illegitimate child? Or so some people say.

              I don't think that a meme was created. Rather, the absence of Obama and the refusal of the DNC were common knowledge. At least here in Illinois.

              Can you explain how even one visit to Wisconsin would have harmed Obama? he didn't need to even address the recall, but he could have made a statement, both verbally, and with his presence.

            If Wis. voters aren't aware of what he's doing, that's his fault too.
