    It says you're and evil, cold hearted, mean person, in other words, a conservative. LOL. As an aside that was actually some pretty fair reporting by CNN. Good to see.

    Money certainly means a lot, but here's the thing. In big elections like this, certain people are going to deny anything that doesn't make it seem like the voters wholly agree with their side. Some on the left will dismiss any notion that Wisconsin voters legitimately agree with Scott Walker. Some on the right will dismiss any notion that Wisconsin voters were swayed more by one-sided ads with great funds behind them than by legitimate agreement with Walker.

    I think money was a huge factor in this as it is in every election. I don't know how someone could deny that. However, I don't know that Wisconsin voters would have voted differently had the election just been based on examining the opposing arguments without any money being involved. They might have, might not have, but regardless, this is what many of them chose. I think it's a horrible decision and I'm happy I don't live there, but it wasn't my decision to make.

    Ah, and I see you chose not to read the source I linked. Or are you formulating a response to the hard data in the article?

    So Democrats and unions are complaining about money spent in a special election that Democrats and unions created?

    Perhaps they could have afforded a plane ticket to have Obama stop by once.

    People on both sides of this were free to donate to the political candidate they wanted to see win. If Walker was able to raise overwhelming amounts of money compared to the other guy, maybe that tells you something as well.

    For those of u blaming this on outside money I have two things to say 1 the unions did the same thing with budding in outside supporters to inflate protest numbers. 2 outside money was used because if the unions were allowed to recal walker it would set a dangerous president and governors everywhere wouldnt reform anything. I'm imagine if 60 years ago the people of Arkansas d have recalled their governor over school integration? Do you thing many other southern govenors would take that chance then?

    And I see you fail to recognize the Wisconsin results and are using the liberal talking points today. It is liberals who can be bought no conservatives

    Most of them didn't until LBJ forced them to.

    If the election were the exact inverse I'd still say that all this election shows is how horrible our governmental system is in that you can buy an elected post when you outspend your opponent 7.5 to 1.

    Our government and electoral system is in a sad sad state of affairs.
