Results in Wisconsin are turning around due to Walker's actions but good results in Wisconsin are ignored by people with an agenda. We are only hearing one side of the story, the side that the left wants out. As usual when the real results get out they will be ignored as the liberals will be off on some other topic.
    Come, now, Conservative. Isn't it possible that there truly was corruption outside of Illinois politics? If we've seen nothing else over the years it's that politicians and big business generally make strange bedfellows.

    Of course, it;s possible. But isn't just a little TOO convenient, Walker getting targeted by the Fed's like this?
    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.

    I never said they were valid.

    But it's kinda hard to take your comments about hypocrisy and double standards seriously when uou display that SAME hypocrisy when dealing with charges made against Obama.

    You are right that it is wrong for people to jump to conclusions about Walker, but you are wrong in that you are doing the same thing with Obama. See my point?

    The more we hear about this Administration the less we hear from the Obama supporters but they have no problem going after alleged allegations against a Republican?
    If you're going to go that route I wonder if you felt as strongly about Haliberton and Blackwater during the GW Bush administration? Be careful that your partisanship doesn't blind you.

    You make these very broad statements without any evidence that can be substantiated. Of course, how could you possibly provide evidence of what you allege goes on in "the liberal mind"? This is falling down the rabbit hole stuff and you just passed Alice.

    On the surface of it, it doesn't seem as if Walker did anything wrong. But being that I am a public employee I do know that there are policies (at least in my state) that prohibits public employees from "campaigning" on government time. You have to wonder just what exactly were these employees doing that they'd walk away from such high paying jobs so abruptly especially in a down economy. Let's look at two important facets of these two employee's association with Gov. Walker.

    Both worked with him Gov. Walker when he worked in local government at the county level per the OP article. One worked in state's contracting office. I do find it interesting that the article would mention that w/o being more specific. Maybe it was just one of those "gotcha" mental connection things...you know, mention that one of Walker's former employees suddenly resigned who just so happened to have worked in the department that monitored state contracts...providing that "corruption" angle. It could just be conincidence, but what if it were true? What if corruption with state contracts along with illegal campaigning were the problem?

    Gotta let this investigation play out. Could be nothing, could be a major story of corrupt politics...

    Let's wait and see how things shake out. The fact that these two former employees who use to work for Walker at lower levels of public service just happened to up and quit in and of itself is a red flag.

    Interesting that Walker has been convicted before it has been proven whereas with Obama who is innocent until convicted. Inspite of Chicago politics on display Obama is given the benefit out doubt but not Walker. Explain why?

    As stated, hasn't Walker already been convicted by Liberals? Where is that same outrage over Obama Administration officials that have resigned and charges of corruption?

    You keep wrongly using this hyperbole that Walker has been convicted. Then you complain how unfair that is. This is utterly ridiculous.
