Obama Campaign Focuses on Walker Recall
Big Government -- Breitbart ^ | 5-24-12 | Mike Flynn

Posted on 05/24/2012 7:50:24 AM PDT by afraidfortherepublic

Wisconsin is a critical state in Obama's strategy to win reelection. [Obama] won it handily against McCain in 2008, but recent polling there is consistent with other swing states; the race between Obama and Romney is very tight. It is hard to see a path to another term that doesn't include Wisconsin in Obama's column. Fearful that a Walker victory in next month's recall would be a crippling blow to the state's Democrat party, the Obama campaign is shifting its entire campaign infrastructure in the state to help oust Walker on June 5th.

This is just the latest sign that the political landscape in WI is shifting away from the unions. All recent polling have shown solid movement towards Walker, however, we can't underestimate the power of these kind of turnout operations. Obama's campaign's shift to working on the recall may be born out of a sense of panic, but it still represents a considerable addition to the union's turnout efforts.

Early voting began on Monday, with reports of strong turnout across the state, not just in liberal enclaves of Madison and Milwaukee. This alone doesn't tell us a lot except that its going to be a wild few days until the finish on June 5th.

Given his ability to pick fights he can’t win, this ought to be seen as a plus for the Walker campaign.

Anyone see him on with Greta last night? Great interview and I think he’s even got her on his side.

Ah, yes. And don’t forget about the boxes of “votes” that will be “found” in someones car. Prayers up for Walker and may God bless him and keep him from the evil he will be facing.

Early voting is rife with voter fraud.

Never happen; Walker’s numbers are consistently solid as a rock.

Do we need anymore proof that these people are Marxist/statists and for the overthrow of the Republic? These vermin are standing alongside the road dressed in black, with black hoods, raising two left fists.

A thinly veiled CYA by Obama. The unions were getting jumpin’ ugly about the lack of support form the Dem establishment. They were likely going to start cutting off the money if Obama did not jump into this sooner or later.

“A thinly veiled CYA by Obama”

Yep. And two weeks before the election qualifies as “later”, LOL.

that's so TRUE; follow the (public union's) $$$$
no (corrupt) support; no (corrupt) $$$$.

Exactly correct. 2 clinched Communist fists on the sign. Look at similar images:

Isn't that also the date that the entirety of Obamacare will be struck down?

Why is this person covering their face? Why do so many on the left and the occupy movement cover their faces? Has anyone ever covered their face at a Tea Party Rally?

OH SH**. The Walker folks need to take some of that money they’ve raised and bring in Sarah Palin, Herman Cain, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich , Chris Christie (I know he’s a RINO) and Paul Ryan and let them saturate the State for Walker in a GET OUT THE VOTE CAMPAIGN.

Time to get radical. If not, the Libs and the Unions just might pull this out.

As much as many of us hate him here, we need to have Mitt Romney come through the state.

This is good news...everything Obama touches turns to lead and the fact the DNC / administration needs to jump in to help should motivate the base I know it would tick me off to see the dems from out of state try to manipulate my state election results

“Poor guy would never win a boxing match ... he has two left fists.”


The mask makes me automatically put this fella’ in my “Thug” category.

‘Whats the matter, little man? Are you afraid someone will identify you and do to you what you want to do, if hiden behind a cheap mask and a safe opportunity, to do someone else? Is that why you hide yourself?’

Thugs are cowards; dangerous, yes, but when you peel the onion layers off, all you find is a chickensh*t coward.
