    No better example exists than Walker -it's what the GOP calls "being bold". Corporate giveaways of taxpayer monies, then cut state worker's pensions, get rid of unions to reduce standard of living, then steal Federal Settlement dollars from the victims of unscrupulous lenders in order to patch the budget he put holes in.

    So, people believed someone like that when he said he would create jobs? Twice?

    When will the nation realize the party of the rich have no problem with people desperate for a job, prefer it actually.

      The first time, yeah, a whole lot of people believed his lies because the media didn't examine his record as Milwaukee County Exec, ask him questions, or, basically, do their job.  They served as fawning stenographers of his talking points, hid his failings, promoted his claimed successes as if they were real.

      In June 2012, he ran against the recall and, once again, the media didn't step in.  He told people that recalls were only for criminals in elected office (despite the fact that they aren't - we use prosecutors and courts for criminals) and pushed the fact that he wasn't a "criminal" and therefore shouldn't be recalled.  Our media failed to inform people of the real reason for recalls - to boot out an elected official whenever the public deems it necessary.

      With tens of millions of anti-recall ads, yes, he "won".  He lied and cheated and bought the election - it's all he really has.

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