    They weren't denied anything. They were the ones who actually got to vote. Honestly, Risky, it seems like some of you would rather manufacture some other reason why Walker won instead of accepting or looking at the real reasons he did.

    Oh, Good Lord,, you think funding was more important than people voting their own pocket books? Results matter and Walker has generated some good results which is what matters. Wherever Walker got his money is irrelevant because people are always going to vote their pocket books.

    Don't read too much into it. The way you guys are talking, you think it's a slam dunk for Romney to win Wisconsin. Considering the power shift in the Senate, don't.

    I support Romney personally, but he's still gonna have to work for it. He shouldn't start measuring the drapes in the White House yet.

    Most the money for both sides was from out of state as most the union money was not raised from members in Wisconsin.

    I'm really not "you guys, " and I just said, "Don't count your chickens..." My other point was that Obama can't run on his record, and I don't think he can.

    Democrats have been very shy of the concept of voting on economic positions of late. Hence, the war on everything except white males.

    Recall elections are fairly unique and some people oppose the overall concept of using a recall election simply for disagreeing with policy actions. Otherwise there would be perpetually recall elections nearly all public officials by the opposing party.

    I wouldn't read much into the outcome one way or the other as this was not a typical election.

    X and Conservative, are you both saying that money doesn't factor into elections? Next you all are going to tell me that AIPAC has only piddling influence on the Hill.

    If money from out of state doesn't mean squat, why was so much out of state money sent to the Walker campaign?

    If those people providing the 70% of funding voted then you might have a point.If those ads were votes you might have a point. However, providing political ads is not denying anyone the right to determine their own governor.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    He can't. You'll notice that he hasn't been. Why do you think he's trotting out Bill Clinton?

    But this thread....well there's been so many money shots in this Con circle jerk that it's a wonder they're not spent.
