  •  Walker "won" the recall (2+ / 0-)

    because of tens of millions of dollars (over $100 million if you count all the ads he's run since the protests), a compliant corporate media, and the fact that he didn't run as a "candidate" or even against Barrett - he ran against the concept of recall.  

    The media, forever whitewashing his record and ignoring his failings, never mentioned how awesome he thought recalls were when he politically benefitted from them.

    i learned a lot in the over a month I didn't have a working computer or access to the internet.  One of the most important things I learned is how little factual information I could get from traditional sources.  As a result, I no longer think people are stupid.  I know they're simply and effectively propagadized.

    There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.

      with much you say here Puddy, and you know I'm very aware of what went on regarding the recall. There's no doubt that the Democrats were outspent in this regard, and that Walker had months ahead of them to advertise against a recall, and all kinds of other unfair stuff.

      Still, the fact remains that Walker's obvious and boldly anti middle class agenda should have trumped those things---but they didn't due to many factors, not the least of which is the fact that too many Wisconsinites swallowed his bile whole, or, thought the issue of recall or not was more important than what Walker was pulling, and still is.  Love his new budget proposals btw, same old shit.  This is NOT a chastened man.

      Wisconsin and America will have to decide what kind of state/country they want to live in.  You and I don't disagree on the most of it, but we may part ways a bit in that I'm less willing than you to make excuses for voters.

      Sorry, but I'm still SO pissed off that enough Wisconsinites decided the issue was to recall or not---although totally legal and allowed by the state constitution FOR A REASON---was more important than the travesties that Scott Walker visited upon Wisconsin, and which he still is.
