    No wonder Walker's poll numbers are plummeting.
    Man, if people could get in trouble for everything they thought about doing, we'd all be a world of hurt.

    Also, Walker said he'd never talked to or met either of the Koch brothers. That's why he was easily fooled. He had no idea if they donated to his campaign. He couldn't rule it out because the Koch brothers donated a large sum and part of it could have come to him.
    Why do I have the feeling that if this happened to a Dem, the one who would be attacked is the one who made the phone call? It would be things like "Why did he ask him about bringing in infiltraters?" "Is it legal in that state to impersinate someone while talking to a governor?" "Is it legal to record a conversation even if you ask first, if you're not who you say you are" Blah Blah Blah

    Oh well, it doesn't matter. Walker did a great job and without the spin some in the news are putting on it, it would be a big plus for him.

    Why would you defend something so unethical to begin with:

    WATCHDOG EXPLORING CAMPAIGN FINANCE AND ETHICS LAW-BREAKING BY SCOTT WALKER DURING FAKE CALL WITH BILLIONAIRE


    This guy taking notes from Blagojevich?
    His "strategy" wasn't anything he hadn't said in interviews for all to see and hear.

    And? What is wrong with Coordination of your Core political positions? Only a progressive would even attempt to make a point that suggests that anyone that does not agree with their ideology is somehow committing a crime.

    Are you suggesting that the SEIU, OBAMA, the AFL-CIO, are not coordinating their positions by running adds on the web demanding that ALL UNIONS swarm upon the PEOPLE of Wisconsin? The left can have Union Bosses coming to the White House with a revolving door policy...but a CONSERVATIVE Governor cannot communicate with a Conservative Supporter (but Soros publicly donating MILLIONS of dollars to left wing media sites and groups is okie dokie?) ...if conservatives simply talk its a conspiracy but its not when the left gets in bed with these UNION THUGS who have no business in Wisconsin where the teachers are attempting to soak the people of that STATE again?

    I fail to see any "GOTCHA MOMENT" except the IDIOTS who are exposing their DISHONEST TACTICS on the national scene for everyone to see just how intellectually dishonest they really are. 2012 is just around the corner....and the Public Service Union has no right to collective bargaining, such was a privilege granted by the same PEOPLE who now realize they can no longer afford such. There is nothing to negotiate. The People of Wisconsin are not the FAT CAT, EVIL CORPORATE BIG WIGS needed to launch a series of CLASS WARFARE attacks upon, in fact the table is reversed...THE PEOPLE see these unions as the fat cats taking advantage of the tax payer when everyone else faces an economic crisis.

    Wisconsin is but the 1st state of many as every state in the union is now facing budget shortfalls.

    It will be interesting to watch them go into even more of a talespin when Wisconsin voters see how slimey and unethical this guy is.
    It's a long time until election. He'll turn it around.
    BTW- Blue City Politics? Well, can't be any worse than Soros funded Media Matters

    He says they had talked about it and decided against it. You say they actively talked about doing it and later decided against it. What next....They had plans in place to do it? Are we going to get back to he did do it? Are you the one who said he did it?

    Walker was elected to be a hatchet man, which means he was elected to only serve one term. Rick Scott was elected for the same reason.

    Oh GAWD what a biased load of crap. Right off the bat they lied.
    MADISON, WI -- Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI) held a tense press conference Wednesday afternoon, following the revelation that he had a 20-minute phone conversation with a prank caller pretending to be Republican financier David Koch, a call in which Walker and "Koch" discussed possible ways to disrupt the protests against his budget bill, and to bring the Democrats back to the Capitol.

    Only a progressive could expose his crime in the national spotlight and act as if he has accomplished something other than suicide....If Koch wishes to pursue the matter....this enquirer type political rag posing as a news paper will be owned by the Koch Corporation.

    Actually it showed him to be the exact opposite. Sure the left is going to cherry pick a couple things and make them into something they are not.
    All in all he said nothing conservatives didn't want to hear.
