    Yup - you don't even understand what is in that one article you reference.
    You don't even understand what the article is about.
    Geeeze - how pathetic.
    1. The article is not about Wisconsin politics.
    2. The article is not about the Wisconsin Democratic Party turning away funding offers from the national Democratic Party.

    "We're not asking him to organize us; we can organize ourselves"
    - Remember that quote you're so fond of? He wasn't talking about money. Get it? He's talking about organizing union membeship - NOT THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.
    4. And, get this, he wasn't talking about Wisconsin specifically - he, Gerry Hudson, was talking about union efforts across the country.
    "He fears that if the White House is too vocal, the controversy in Wisconsin and elsewhere may appear to be engineered from outside rather than a grassroots response to behavior that labor activists view as union-busting."
    5. The final paragraph of the article sums up the subject matter of the article.
    "A new Gallup poll shows that 61 percent of Americans support collective bargaining rights. And many of these protests are in politically important swing states, such as Wisconsin, Ohio and Indiana. They are places where Republicans made big gains in the 2010 midterm elections. Democrats believe this conflict will help mobilize base voters for 2012, whether the White House is vocal or silent, and whether the unions ultimately win or lose."
    Get it? The article is NOT about money. The article is NOT about Wisconsin. The article is about the unions efforts to the counter flood of anti-union legislation that was sweeping the country.
    The article was not about the Democratic Party in Wisconsin.
    Read and comprehend before you cite an article as bolstering your bogus position.
    •  May I suggest you reread the article (0+ / 0-)

      You're wrong. Actually 100% wrong and it would seem you didn't read the whole article or my original point.  The follow up comment:

      "It might look [manufactured] and it obviously isn't," he said, "so we don't want anybody to believe for one moment that the White House is organizing this. The White House is not."
      "This" is the protests.

      That link is from a comment I had in a thread specifically about the recall and was from a supporter of the strategy to stay out.

      Suggestion:  stop while you are ahead.

      Sorry to disappoint you, but I think you may be letting your passion get in the way of the facts
