    As for some people on the left jumping to conclusions about Walker you are correct that it is wrong, when it is just being investigated. However it is just as wrong for people on the right to jump to occlusions about the Solyndra loan when it is still being investigated.
    So Solyndra didn't happen? 500 million taxpayer dollars didn't go to one of the largest campaign donors of Obama? What does it take to prove something to a liberal?

That sort of thing is what is happening here with this topic. Conservative is just trying to deflect from the actual topic.
    So Walker hasn't been convicted in the liberal mind? This is about double standards and that is what I am pointing out.

    I never said the loan didn't happen, but you and others on the right are jumping to conclusions that there was illegal or wrongdoing by Obama directly. It is still being investigated so yes, you are wrong for jumping to those conclusions.

    It is easy to paint all politicians with the same broad brush, however there are some who take the position reluctantly but for the right reasons.

    A few of us are able to ignore the shame that some bring upon themselves when they have lost their way.

    I know a few politicians who have lived up to their "Oath of Office," I count myself among them.
    Oh? Hmmm...interesting. I'd always thought your handle was just a catchy moniker like all the rest. Curious, since you put yourself out there I wonder what position do you serve in public office and where? It's only fitting to see if your track record measures up to your proclaimed level of trustworthiness and fidelity to honor and commitment to your constiuences. Mind you, I've also considered running for public office because I'm so fed up with dishonesty in politics, but it's getting too difficult for the average American to get into the public arena w/o deep financial support.

    That said, would you be willing to put your political track record on public display?

    (BTW, I applaud your willingness to serve.)

    You mean the same double standard as you accusing Obama of wrongdoing in the Solyndra loan investigation while it is still being investigated? Yes, you are demonstrating that double standard very well.

    A bit over the top don't you think? Let's tone it down and at least find the person guilty first then let the punishment fit the crime, shall we?

    I continue to point to the hypocrisy of liberals who have already convicted Walker while ignoring charges made against Obama. These are charges that have not been substantiated but that doesn't mean that Walker hasn't been convicted in the minds of liberals. We have issues like Solyndra and othere "Green" companies receiving taxpayer money that have declared bankruptcy and charges made that loans were fast tracked without good DD and in the case of Solyndra recommended that the loan not happen. So why is it charges against a Republican are valid before proven and those made against the Obama Administration not valid when already proven?

    because the similarities are quite similar although liberals make charges against Conservatives that are guilty until proven innocent whereas charges against Obama are innocent until proven guilty even though hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars and probably over a billion have been wasted due to questionable transactions.

    Can't win at the election box? Get the fed's involved. Of course, if he's guilty, toss him in the slammer, but me thinks there is more here then meets the eye.

    Of course, so many here are ready to watch Gov Walker fall they've all ready tried and convicted him. Meanwhile the circles of scandal around Obama and Co. grow, yet many that post in this thread are amazingly absent from those...
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
