  •  And the Wisconsin races would have been cheap (6+ / 0-)

    insurance at a $15-30 million dollar pocketchange premium to ensure a Dem victory.
    Instead the dedicated "grassroots" Badgers got some peanuts, a muthafuckin'  tweet from POTUS, a few emails and a bit of warm CO2 lipservice from the likes of darling Debbie W-S.
    Before they got mowed down:

    The Democrats are taking advantage of the recall as an opportunity to conduct a "test run" of their massive grass-roots operation. Obama for America has been calling on its supporters around the country to remotely recruit Wisconsin volunteers.

    "Elections like these are won on the ground," the DNC wrote in a recent blog post. "At doorsteps and over the phone, Wisconsin voters are hearing from Democratic Party and [Organizing for America] organizers and volunteers about why it's time for Walker to go." But the effort to mobilize local volunteers stretches far beyond the borders of Wisconsin. The group DC for Obama, which states its mission as re-electing President Barack Obama through "canvassing, visibility events, and promotion of local campaign activities," sent out an email to its members earlier this spring encouraging them to recruit Wisconsin volunteers to "knock on doors and make phone calls" in an effort to end the "slash and burn" reign of Gov. Walker.

    "We have put our considerable grass-roots resources behind [Barrett]. All of the Obama for America and state party resources, our grass-roots network is fully engaged," Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz told CNN recently.

    I don't see any goddamned dollar signs in there, do you?

    •  it is called hedging your bets. (0+ / 0-)

      If he would have went all in on this election and it still turned out like it did, then the news cycle would be all about how OBAMA was defeated by proxy.  

      You have to think like in chess.  You do not sacrifice the queen untill it is time.
