    No one has more money in the warchest than Obama, who loves him a union. Where was he?

    This wasn't about money at all. This was about a weak candidate the Dems ran against Walker, a shrinking union membership, and basic common sense in the voting bloc. You had an entire network behind you, two if you count CNN, too.

    Republicans could outspend you, 8-to-1, in most blue states, or vice versa in red states, and that wouldn't change an election much. Wisconsin is supposedly a blue state, so what's up?

    Right. So this shows that all sides have a great capacity to garner large contributions.

    Been bombarded with 18 months of negative media coverage of Scott Walker. Easily worth more than all the actual money spent by both sides combined.

    Last night, the little guy won. And the media finally has to STFU.

    Cry me a river about "money".

    You're diverting the argument. This isn't about Obama/Romney and what may happen.

    In your defense, the day after isn't the best way to judge folks, either side of the aisle. No doubt. We all hate licking our wounds out in the open.

    But this is different in that it was an election that Democrats called and went fundamentally all-in. So the excuses run rather flat. If the money difference is as dramatic as claimed, doesn't that tell you something? People, in general, REALLY backed what Walker did with the public union, even many union members and Democrats.

    I guess if the Koch's are little guys, then yes, the little guy won.
