    It's up to Wisconsin voters. Will they put up with Walker and his attack on the people of their state or are they going to fire him. I think it's going to be close but he will get fired.

    I pity the people of Wisconsin if this lying, reprobate somehow wins. Sure glad I do not live there, and after follwing this mess for over a year, doubt I would ever set foot in the state. Not a place I would spend one dime or one minute of my time.

    I would have no pity for the people of Wisconsin if they do not recall Scott Walker. It would be a disaster for democracy if Scott Walker is allowed to continue. Wisconsinites need only to look at Michigan to find out what Republicans really want to do, which is replace duly elected officials with state appointed czars. People who come in and start selling off city/town property at bargain prices in no-bid auctions to private investors.

    We need to vote out all the anti-American tee-partiers who owe their allegiance to their corporate masters. Everbody who signed any allegiance to another master like those who bow to Norkquist – needs to go.
    We the people need to rise up against the "corporations are people too" crowd.
    GOPorations have over spent Americans “twenty to one” trying to buy this re-call election in Wisconsin.

    The outcome of Wisconsin is going to surprise many. When I heard Mr. Caterpillar starting complaining that there is voting fraud, then I knew that he is starting to feel the heat that things are going to turn out differently as he expected!

  9. The GOP opens mouth and inserts foot

    Easy solution to America's problems - vote Democrat. Straight ticket. Vote out the GOP and the country will come back stronger than ever.

    And then maybe the new GOP that rises from the old will remember that they're hired to do a job - to make this world better than they found it when they were elected instead of catering to the 1%.

    One way or the other, at least Walker will not be down in Florida getting more money from the Kochs.

    "Walker is ahead because of the people, people want Walker because he has demostrated to be the better for Wisconsin's economy, jobs, education."

    And you know this how? Have you seen any polling from AFTER the debate?
