  •  I'm beginning to sense a turn-around... (7+ / 0-)

    It's been 3 years of insanity here in Wisconsin, but I more hopeful now than I have been in quite some time.

    1) The John Doe investigation (secret router / nasty emails) is taking a toll. Even the most stalwart Walker supporter has to know that he was totally aware of the secret email system. His refusal to comment is so utterly lame that not even Chris Wallace of Fox could accept it.

    2) I'm almost certain that there will be much more from John Doe I and II

    3) There is not a single thing that Walker can count as a success. More Jobs? We've grown at half the rate of surrounding states after the recession. Tax cuts? We've given away the store to corporate interests and we've borrowed massively. We're setting ourselves up for a huge crash.

    4) The list of failures is endless. Education, medicare, WEDC, cronyism, voter suppression, etc, etc, etc.

    5) This is a closely divided state. Obama won by 7% just months after Walker won the recall by 7%. Openly gay and openly liberal Tammy Baldwin crushed formerly popular governor Tommy Thompson for the senate.

    Mary Burke hasn't impressed so far, but it's early. Any Democratic warm body starts with 40-45% votes guaranteed

    The tide is turning
