  •  Recall wasn't in 2010 (0+ / 0-)

    And wis unions and party rejected national support.  Or at a minimum, played ball.

    It was an important beachhead.  And the Dem party at the local and national level failed miserably, in my opinion because they still bought the conservative lines about unions, used weasel words and ran from a nationalized battle.

      that caused Walker's election and the recall.

      Rahm & Tim Kane were the architects of the midwest swing state slaughter. Rahm as CoS, and Obama's other miserable staffing picks killed Obama's buzz and, like Clinton's 94 midterm, disappointed Dem leaning voters stayed home in droves.

      Wisconsin and the other states conservadem blundering threw away in 2010 all elected Obama & Dem senators 2012. They couldn't crack the gerrymanders and elect Dem congress critters or state legislations. But if you look at the numbers Wisconsin, Ohio, Michigan, & Pennsylvanian voters really tried too.

      The fight the Badgers & Buckeyes put up needs to be respected and copied, even it the Badgers came up short. They are rolling rocks up a very steep hill & should be supported and praised, not blamed for a circumstance not of their own making.
