Obama's political wing involved in Wisconsin recalls

Madison President Barack Obama’s political arm at the Democratic National Committee is getting involved in the Wisconsin state Senate recall elections.

Obama’s Organizing for America is pulling together volunteers in Madison this weekend to knock on doors and make phone calls in support of Democrats in eight recall elections.

The group sent an email Thursday night to supporters soliciting volunteers.

The group’s Wisconsin field director says Organizing for America will be providing support to volunteers working on the recall elections. Six Republicans and two Democrats face recall elections next month.

Obama’s group was also involved with helping to organize protests in Madison in February over Gov. Scott Walker’s collective bargaining proposal, which spurred the recalls

Those of you who can spare a few bucks, send a donation to the six Republican heros who stood up to big labor and did the right thing for the taxpayers of Wisconsin.

The unions are throwing MILLIONS of $ on STATE SENATE elections here in Wisconsin because they know if the recalls fail, it will embolden rational Republican politicians around the country. They will realize the taxpayers, the SILENT majority, are tired of being fleeced by overpaid public sector union goons.

We need the countries help to defeat the FleaBaggers who fled to Illinois rather than stay and do the people's work!

Alberta Darling, Dan Kapanke, Luther Olson, Rob Cowles, Randy Hopper, and Shelia Harsdorf need your help now.

Poorly written headline.

It implies that Obama might have a NON-political wing.

This isn’t going to stop until the Tea Party gets back on the field and starts recalling the commie ‘RAT piggies.

If there is a shady deal anywhere in the country, you can bet an Obama group has their fingers in it.

I cannot believe that the people of Wisconsin will reverse their decision of last November and re-install the people who got them into the mess in the first place.

If they do...they are stupid......and deserve everything that comes their way...for they absolutely have to know what will await them.


...sorry for the insensitivity, but Wisconsin escaped their mess, and if they get back into the same old mess, they have no one to blame...except themselves.

Surely, there must be enough freedom loving people who didn't do their duty last time to overcome the union thugs this time.

It's very plausible Dems can flip up two, maybe three, seats in the recall. They need three to retake the majority in the WI Senate.

High risk:

Randy Hopper (Fond du Lac) won by only 163 votes in 2008. I'd call that one at very serious risk.

Alberta Darling (River Hills) won by 1% in 2008, just over 1,000 votes. I'd call that one at serious risk.

Some risk:

Dan Kapake (La Crosse) won reelection by less than 3% in 2008, about 2500 votes, slightly smaller margin than when he took the seat. He ran for congress in 2010 and lost by almost 4%. I'd say there's some risk to this seat.

Little risk:

Sheila Harsdorf (River Falls) won by 12% in 2008, over 11,000 votes. Probably safe.

No risk:

Rob Cowles (Allouez) won with 99.35% of the vote. I think he's safe.

Luther Olseon (Ripon) won with 99.35% of the vote. I think he's safe too.

For those of you following this unionista chaos for recalls in Wisconsin, it was also revealed that the 14 fleebag Democr*ps that fled to the great state of Rahm Emanuel, Illinois were funded by several unions, SEIU, and others. Gee - didn’t we hear they were paying out of their own widdle pockets?? boo hoo.

Liars all of them. Please, Please anyone who can help support our GOP state senators recall efforts, we sure would appreicate it. Help is needed in a get out the vote effort the last few days before the election. They ARE spending millions of dollars quietly into Wisconsin to defeat these state senators and the WI GOP is not doing much, IMHO, since Reince Priebus is now running the Big GOP.

This election IS more important than November 2010, but it’s starting to go under the radar. Help us if you can. It’s very important. And We thank you from the bottom of our Wisconsin Beer Glass.
