DNC is MIA in Wisconsin (RATS quit & don't send the loot - Walker a 'lock'?)

DNC is MIA in Wisconsin
By ROBIN BRAVENDER | 5/16/12 4:26 AM EDT

The Republican National Committee has said it’ll kick in whatever it takes to keep Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker in office.

But Democrats in Washington won’t commit to spending big, even though their candidate has been out raised 25-to-1 so far. And in Wisconsin, that’s left the local activists fuming.

With just three weeks until the June 5 recall election in Wisconsin, Democrats in the state are still waiting for a check they asked the Democratic National Committee to send. And the Obama campaign hasn’t given them any cash, either.

**SNIP**

Graeme Zielinski, a spokesman for the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, said the state party has made a financial request of the DNC and that “it is pending.” He declined to confirm the amount, but didn’t dispute the $500,000 figure, first reported by the Washington Post.

“We’re going to get outspent 10-to-1, maybe 20-to-1,” Zielinski said. “We just need the resources to activate our superior get-out-the-vote operation, which we could. But we can’t do it for free. Campaigns cost money. Scott Walker has owned the air. We believe we can own the ground.” Zielinski noted he’s confident that the DNC and other allies will support state Democrats.

Democrats and Unions Make a Debacle in Wisconsin
By Mark Whittington | Yahoo! Contributor Network – 4 hrs ago

COMMENTARY | When the Democratic Party and its union allies concocted the recall election against Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker, the purpose was to punish him for daring to curb some of the public sector unions' collective bargaining rights.

If a recall could topple Walker, then a union-friendly governor would help roll back his reforms and place the unions back in power. That was the plan anyway.

The latest PPP poll shows Walker ahead of his Democratic opponent Tom Barrett by five points just three weeks before the election. The Democratic National Committee, having seen the handwriting on the wall, has abandoned participation in the race, according to Politico. The Washington Post suggests the circular firing squad is already loading ammunition in preparation of an embossing defeat.

If Walker wins, I think Romney wins. RATs were whining on the radio today - they are pissed at the DNC and may sit out November if the DNC doesn’t help out ...

What is an “embossing defeat”? Does that mean they get stamped?

MU Poll came out this afternoon.

Walker up 6%

Barrett screaming bloody murder over early release of BLS numbers showing that we actually added jobs last year in WI.

Good times going to get even better in 3 weeks.

I hope SEIU emptied their bank accounts to defeat Walker.

Maybe that $500,000 they are seeking is part of Obama’s deposits in J P Morgan Chase.

My hope is that the State Dem establishment gets so pissed at the DNC and Obama that they work on a payback by sitting out the general election in November tossing Wisconsin into the Red state category.

Folks need to keep the support and pressure on. Donate to Walker’s “Friends for Scott Walker” campaign and help them keep the positive campaign that they’re running on track. They’re winning with the facts! The ad’s provide references to the sources and they can’t be discredited because their accurate!!!

Still, if folks think the unions are rolling over and giving up, they’re sadly mistaken. I predict massive voter fraud.

The Voter ID law was back-burnered by a Liberal Madison Judge so that it would not apply to the recall election. Voter Fraud WILL happen June 5th. Watch for it!

Praying for a landslide victory for Scott!!! Wisconsin needs it, and so does the rest of this great country!

Actually that is a very fictious & bogus comparison. The 25-1 ratio (or 10-1, or 20-1), whatever number happens to drop from the lips of the scurvy RAT bastard demoRATs is false & misleading. Walker needed to raise some $25 million, in order to fight against the proposed $61 MILLION that the public sector unions and SEIU were planning on throwing into the recall against Walker. I think that number by the unions is going down, because as stupid & evil as they are, they don't want to deplete their slush funds for other devious ventures.

I imagine a good size chunk of that $61 million will still be spent by the unions, for the recall against Walker as well as the four Republican senators being recalled. We need to pray & work & contribute for Walker, but let's not forget to fight & contribute like crazy for the 4 Republican senators. If only 1 recall flips over to the RAT bastards, than the demoRATs will control the WI senate and Repubs will control the WI Assembly. And the RAT bastard demoRATs will refuse to pass or work with Walker & the Repubs on anything. And being the lyin' snake RAT bastards that they are, they will accuse Walker & the Repubs of stonewalling.

We GOTTA win the 4 Repub senate recall elections as well. If there is a mammoth turnout on June 5, I believe (and hope & pray) that a large turnout will favor the Repubs. Truth be known, a lot of folks in WI are getting sick & tired of the RAT bastard demoRAT shenigans & constant recall campaigns.

Obama and the Democrat elite are in self-preservation mode and will keep all the money for themselves to try and keep their positions. Don't be surprised if even 2-term Democrat Representatives are thrown to the wolves to fend for themselves.

DemoRATS, don’t count on Obamaumau sending any money. He’s in it just for himself, if you haven’t figured that out already. He could give a $hit about all the DemoRAT Congresspersons and Senators running in November. All the money is his, and he’s keepin’ it!!!!

So translated from Kenyan... FUDNC and all you suckered DemoRATS!

You hit on a point- a while back the DNC/Obama wanted the Unions to back off the recalls after losing the State Supreme Court recall and the Senate recall. Obama did not want Labor depleting money so it can funnel money to Obama. Plus, as the local RATS and Labor were losing, Obama was declining in the Polls. A loss on a gubernatorial recall could spell a lose for Obama. It looks like Wisconsin is in serious play....

BTW, Is there any way to know for absolute certainty that the voting machines haven't/won't be tampered with? As in preloaded? Particularly in Dem strongholds?

Doubtless it's scrubbed by now, but there was once a Youtube showing how an experienced geek can hack a voting machine in ... oh, five minutes. Maybe ten.

Wish I weren't so suspicious. Also wish we could go back to paper ballots.

They want Walker out of the way so that a Dem gov will give the green light to massive vote fraud in November. With a Republican governor willing to push for prosecution of vote fraud, the Dems are likely to lose in November.

The libs in Wisconsin are not worthy of my presence. After seeing them raise total hell without any means to back it up made them look very foolish in the eyes of workers across the fruited plain.

“Like the children they are, these Leftists are not going to take kindly to the fact that they did not get what they wanted. Much foot stomping, breath holding, and assorted temper tantrums to follow.”

The commies had all the press, the demonstrations, and fools in Madison. The Milwaukee Journal Urinal was chock full of every type of anti-Walker bias imaginable each day. The left thought they could hold election after election until they got their way through attrition and election fatigue.

This is the home stretch for a great governor. If he wins, we all win, and the left will bemoan the money being spent and claim they really didn't care that much anyway. But it won't be over. When they don't win through elections, the Dems and the media mob often turn to scandal and investigation like with Nixon, Sarah Palin, and others. The Obama Justice Department may yet even try to chase Walker out on some trumped up garbage like they did to Fife Symington here in Arizona. Walker is a fighter and I hope he keeps on fighting. The Dems have no shame at all.
