    Walker, if he survives the recount, should understand that he nearly lost and talk to the other people in the state. He should realize his mortality. He damaged the state.

    What a "slap in the face" for democracy!!! Wisconsin just allowed BIG CORPORATIONS decide our elections – Wisconsin was ground zero and now USA is ground ZERO!!! Out of the top 10 BIG CORPS that paid for the election in WI – 7 out of them are Republican-driven – The three unions that are left to fight for the middle class is now DEAD!!!

    Obama 2012 – The Only Trusted Way Forward!! He was elected because of the "Fierce Urgency of NOW and NOW I see why!!!
