Dear Wisconsin liberals.....

Good morning sleepy heads! Hope you got a good nights sleep. Make sure you order a double at Starbucks this morning so you are ready for your day - you've got a lot of explaining to do.

Let's talk about this whole recall thing - you know, that groundswell of the grassroots? I'm sure you're confused about the whole thing, but let me give you a hand with this. Let's talk about that difference in the campaign funds spent. Whether it is the sobbing activist on CNN crying that "Democracy is OVER!" or the official press release from the Obama Campaign, all you guys are talking about is being "outspent $34 million to $4 million".

Okay. Dry your eyes and I'll explain to you why you lost. First, the unions are the ones who picked this fight, not Scott Walker. He didn't come knocking on the door of the Wisconsin Democrat Party asking to be recalled. Progressive activists started this. The Unions started this. The Wisconsin Democrats started this. Here's a clue, Wisconsin Democrats - before you start a fight, make sure you've got the resources to win. Since YOU are the ones who picked the fight, you aren't really in a position to complain about how much ammunition Scott Walker bring with him.

Secondly, maybe you might want to reconsider your campaign strategy. You got 1.1 million signatures to recall Scott Walker, yet your vote total on election night was only 1,158,337 voters? You spent all that money, energy, time and effort and persuaded exactly 58,337 people statewide? Really? You need to call Don Draper and design a new campaign. On second thought, don't do that - he won't give you the time of day because you don't know what the hell you're doing.

Finally, quit crying about President Obama not coming to Wisconsin. He knew it was going to be a train wreck. Axlerod knew it was goin to be a train wreck. Barrett knew it was going to be a train wreck. It appears that YOU were the only one who didn't realize that, but hey, Obama is really looking forward to your help in November! He's counting on you to double up on all of that energy. And emotion. And money. I'm sure you'll feel like going that extra mile (oops, sorry about the Biblical reference) to get him elected so he can continue to ignore you when you need him.

You might want to make that Starbucks a triple.

“‘This Is the End of Democracy’

I certainly hope so. Democracy is a very bad thing. The founding fathers did not want democracy, they wanted, and got, a representative republic. Democracy is nothing more than mob rule in a nice suit. WHOEVER THIS PERSON WAS, I HOPE THEY ARE RIGHT!...............”


Exactly right and well said.

I suspect the extent of union contributions, (in-kind and financial) are not part of this equation.

We also hear speculation that busloads of out of staters from Illinois and Michigan voted just across the border, which happened to be the senatorial district of the Lehman / Van Haagen (sp?) race. It's the only Dem victory of the night, and is the most likely to have been corrupted, imho.

Bill Kristol wrote today that Ben Franklin warned that our democratic republic will only work within a moral and honest society.

Well....that explains a lot of recent difficulties, doesn't it.

"outspent $34 million to $4 million"

Here is a post I made earlier regarding this hellacious fallacy....

The demoRATs & media keep harping on how Scott Walker raised $31 million (or $34 million....the number keeps fluctuating) to fight against the recall. But last year the unions & dimTurds spent $45 million to recall 6 Repub senators, plus trying to vote in libturd Joanne Kloppenberg as WI Supreme Court judge vs David Prosser.

And the estimates I recall reading for the recalls this year were that the unions (WI state & national unions) had $61 million that they allocated to recall Walker, Kleefisch & the 4 Repub state senators.

So in total, I would say between last year & this year, the demoRATs & unions spent $106 million on wasted recall campaigns. I for one, am thankful & overjoyed that we kicked the crap out of the demoRATS & unions.

Great point. Either way, the Democrats are trapped here; either they didn’t raise much money or they are lying. Or both.

Thank you for the analysis. We were partying like it was 2010 last night. It was Christmas Eve and the 4th of July all wrapped up in one evening. These people could use your analysis.

The $4 million is what Barrett raised for the past Quarter. It does not include what was spent by outside groups on either candidate’s message. Walker has raised $31 million or so since last year. He raised $5 million or so in the last Quarter.

So the libs were comparing what they raised in a quarter to what Walker raised in a year.... Yep, sounds like Democrat accounting.

Essentially, the RATS brought a hot check to barn-raising.

Since YOU are the ones who picked the fight, you aren't really in a position to complain about how much ammunition Scott Walker bring with him.

Guess which party wrote this into law, concerning recalls: recall participants can raise unlimited amounts of cash from the time signatures are collected until recall election day?

And then they spent the entire winter complaining about the amount of cash Walker was bringing in. LOL!

I wanted to mention in regard to the Wis outcome...

I received an e-mail tying the jump in the DOW Wednesday to Scott Walker's win and its implications. I wish it were true as an explanation for the jump in the DOW. Unhappily, the truth is somewhat hidden:
The FED has quietly started QE3 [quantitative easing - what we used to call inflation.

This means a lot of $$$$ coming to Wall Street for now, and eventually inflation or collapse for Main Street.

It is also important to mention that the FED has been buying Euros, thus allowing Obama to help Euro socialists without the Congress - or citizens - knowing that our money is going to prop up a losing cause.

It is past time for the Congress to take back its Constitutional responsibility for the currency... I know, the Congress is terrible handling money. At least we have the power of the vote over Congress [for now]; we have NO control over the FED, and it is getting completely out of control!!! sigh
