Democratic leader consoles Wisconsin party after recall
By Brendan O'Brien | Reuters 9 hours ago
MILWAUKEE (Reuters) - Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz rallied Wisconsin Democrats holding their state convention this weekend, urging them to regroup after a failed attempt to recall the state's Republican governor.
Wasserman Schultz said Wisconsin Democrats had been up against "nothing short of an avalanche of secret, out of state, and corporate special interest money" in their bid to unseat Governor Scott Walker, who enjoyed a 7-to-1 financial advantage over his challenger Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.

What saves that hair?
vs unlimited hordes of Marxist-Union thugs bearing millions in cash stolen from union rank and file.
Ummmm....Debbie is the National DNC Chair. She holds the purse strings. If she’s bitching they outspent them, it’s directly her fault.
And when you look at what the unions, and outside democrat special interest groups, and the free press the media has given them for 16 months, the spending lines up pretty much even.
Communist pigs are such hypocrites. Those freaks were bussing in idiots from all over the country to protest Walker, they got a crapload of money too from far left loons. I love watching Commies cry, its SO much fun!
The Wisconsin Demoncratic Convention onsored by Kleenex...oh wait, Kimberly Clark is gone eh?
I understand you put up a front talking meme about the outspent 7-to-1 to the public. But why do you have to lie to your own people?
I would be very worried if I participated in the WI Dem convention. It is not as if they wouldn’t know the ‘true story’, they were there.
“Those (expletive) voters just can’t be trusted even we gave them a second chance to get it right. That’s why we should never leave important elections up to them. Too many of them don’t understand what’s best for them.”
Why are liberal woman so ugly ?
Oh baloney...much of this was shere motivation on the part of the individual organizations and allied organization - the DNC itself could have pumped a lot more money in to assist but read the polls and decided not to risk that much money on something unlikely to be a victory with general elections coming up. Meanwhile GOP orgs saw victory was at hand and got in there to solidify it. Democrat decisions not to pump more resources in was there decision - but they spin to try to blame it on the Republicans because they did.
Got that right. Most of the mailings we received were union-generated.
Let’s not forget sight of the fact that the WI democrats took control of the state senate, 17-16.
Now, I think 16 out of 33 state senate seats are up for re-election this Novemebr.
Walker could be hobbled for the rest of his term if the dems block everything in the state senate.
It means Wisconsonites have to actually ramp up the fight rather than wind down and relax.
Having seen ol’ Debbie on air more than once....allow me:
Debbie, you airheaded bitch....you lost. Get over it. Your 15 minutes are up. Go back to being a temp. You haven’t the slightest idea what strategy is all about; I’d take you on in a heartbeat and you’d lose. You’re out of your league, wench.
“Why are liberal woman so ugly?”
Socialism.....all flesh, no Spirit, accelerates/exposes what lies beneath.
Liberals enjoy being lied to. Indeed, they lie to themselves every day.
TO WI public sector Unions : Ha-Ha, the DNC and Obama abandoned you suckers! Now pony up more $$$.
I’ve no doubt that, if all the political expenditures in Wisconsin since the last general election were added up — the protests, the recall referenda, the Supreme Court election and, finally, the recall election itself — the Democrats and union thugs far outspent the Republicans.
|Senator||District||Party||Current Age||First elected||Seat up|
There they are. Wisconsites will need to give their take on this - are any of the seats currently held by the GOP in real danger of being lost? Is it possible any of these Dems are vulnerable and a pickup is possible to retake control of the Senate? It looks like a couple of them have their seats from the last round of recalls - and redistricting under GOP control will be in effect this time around, right? I would think that at least Jessica King would be vulnerable - the reason she won that recall has nothing to do with what drove the recall but the GOP incumbent had personal scandals...and even with all of that going on she still barely won in that district.
Hey, you are a little premature. The deciding election for Van Waangard is not yet decided. Its too close and Van Waangard has not conceded - may go to a recount.
Also, even if he loses the Senate is not in session until Jan. The election in November uses the new redistricted maps which should allow Rs to pick up 3-4 seats.
Of course we (esp the Tea Parties) will be driving it home with our tested voter lists and GOTV.
See the above post - which seats do you think are most likely for GOP pickup? Any seats held by GOP now facing any serious challenges?
Whew... it don’t get any guiltier than that.
It has been documented by one of the conservative blog-media that the Unions spend 21 million.
But think about this... every reporter, camera man, editor, journalist, etc. is a member of the Communication Workers of America. Watching the local Mke news, it was pretty obvious how they were slanting the story. Another 10 million in in-kind donations.
The DNC executive committee looked far and wide for anybody stupid enough to accept the 2012 chairmanship—a political suicide mission.
Then someone said: “What about that dumb broad from Palm Beach with the big butt and big mouth? Debbie something. . .?”
Holperin is retiring. King (I think) won her seat in a Rep leaning district because the incumbent had a wife and a 25 year old girlfriend that he gave a job to. I think Hansen is the other really vulnerable one. Northeast WI went really strong for Walker.
There are no weak GOP seats. And when the new districts are in effect, Van Wyygard may run and win the new district which will be more heavily republican.
Democrats really lost big in 2010 allowing R’s to redistrict.
I hope you are correct.
It wasn't how much money that was spent on the race,it was the fact that more money was raised by Walker and his crew, meaning more people wanted to vote for him.
That is one reason the MSM is always touting fund raising as a good thing, except in this case they aren't.
According the WI FReepers I’ve read on FR, redistricting is supposed to give the Republicans a two seat gain this election, that’s not counting any seats we might overturn.
Republicans called Wasserman Schultz’s remarks “damage control.”
Someone needs to tell Little Debbie that they have products, on the shampoo aisle, to “control damaged” hair.
No, no, no. The Legislature is DONE for the year. It makes no difference that the Dems “took over” the Senate. The Senate will not meet again until after the November election. Districts have been re-drawn, it it may be all different people by then.
Scott Walker, who enjoyed a 7-to-1 financial advantage over his challenger Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.
Did anyone hear the Libs/Dems scream when Obama bragged that he would raise $1 Billion for the ‘12 Campaign?
(Bet he doesn’t reach his $Billion goal. Enthusiasm among his ‘08 supporters has waned greatly. Even the “Obama Girl” is not supporting him this time.) See the Obama Girl thread by going to this link: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2893621/posts?page=26
I did the math on that. The number of the Seats lost from Blue States that went to Red States is 11 Seats. You can check it out by Googling How the 2010 Census effected the Electoral Vote. So............ check this out....
If you take (subtract) 11 votes from Lib/Dem States and give (add) then to the GOP/Conservative States, that is actually a net gain of 22. You have 11 apples; I have 11 apples. We’re even. But, I get 11 apples from you, I have 22 apples, you have none. Now it’s a -22 difference for you.
YA GOTTA LOVE THE CENSUS EVERY 10 YEARS. LONG LIVE CENSUS TAKERS.
None of the GOP seats are really in danger. Olson is a RINO, but he’ll win. Darling beat off a recall effort last year and is running unopposed.
One thing to remember, these are redistricted seats designed by the GOP caucus.
The libs outspent Walker 5 to one......
There was an interesting article the other day about the WI recall in terms of spending. It was true that Walker spent a lot more. BUT Barrett raise something like 10 million more then he spent, where is the $$ Barrett?
Yeeeech.... That is one ugly yenta.
I dunno, but on a scale of 1-10, debbie is only about a 6.
The demonRATS are world renowned for having super ugly women, schulz is just a shade over the mean average.
Why are liberal woman so ugly?
When you are sick inside it starts to show on the outside
Bingo! "Progressives" have false assumptions about the nature of reality. They make bad decisions based on those false assumptions. They tell themselves lies so that they do not have to face reality.
Because what's on the inside eventually shows up on the outside?
I got it. The other poster enlightened me on those details.
...”corporate, special-interest money.,..”
More subversive bulls$%t.
