      Figure out what the problem is and then back engineer the solution. If the problem is voters are misinformed Onward Wisconsin or some other prog group should concentrate on a media campaign to inform them and make it its main priority now.

    •  And billboards (5+ / 0-)

        I don't know why the Dems haven't already started throwing out signs and billboards planting the facts in people's minds. 44th in jobs and the corruption of the WEDC jobs agency should sink any governor in a state worth a damn, but if the Dems don't step up and MAKE PEOPLE KNOW, the media won't do it for them. And then this state won't be worth a damn. I can't accept that.

         Even with a complicit media, Walker's a 50-50 proposition at best to win, so C'mon DPW, step up and do more than just press releases. The Legislative Dems can only do so much here.

        In rewarding media apathy with advertising buys, you only encourage the status quo.

        Not that it would change in the absence of such buys, but the media is looking at a steady state where GOP $$$'s buy their apathy and Democratic $$$'s come along because they get no publicity without it.

        Fake candidates nominated by the GOP for the recalls: 6 out of 7. Fake signatures on the recall petitions: 4 out of 1,860,283.

        a strong Democratic Party here with vibrant leadership?  Think again.  They should be all over this.  The only thing they've done was to put a comment on their web site.

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