    The Democrats have put a lot of time, effort, and money into the Walker recall wanting to make it a endorsement for Obama if Walker loses what is it for Obama though if Walker wins?

    The DNC hasn't put ANY money, and barely any time or effort into the Wisconsin recall...

    It's all labor.

    He has many more millions at his disposal than his opponent, if he doesn't win by 15% or more, its a loss.

    Almost half of the $62 million spent so far has come from Walker. Campaign finance reports show that the embattled governor has spent $29 million on the race. Democratic candidates have spent around $4 million, with Barrett accounting for about $2.9 million of that total. The remaining money has come from outside spending groups, about $21.5 million from the groups that have reported their spending.
    The Wisconsin Democracy campaign estimated that an additional $7.5 million has been spent by “issue ad” groups, but that figure is likely a conservative estimate, said the group’s executive director Mike McCabe.

    Even adding in 10 million for Barrett, walker has spent 16 MILLION more; guess that big money union myth is just that-A MYTH. Some of the 29 million on other candidates no doubt came from walker's corporate owners, they made sure there was a slew of candidates.

    The rap will be that the Koch Brothers bought the election for Walker. Just wait.

    I didn't say the DNC had I said Democrats had and labor tends to be Democrat as well as vote and donate to Democrats given that I find a little hard to believe the DNC is not playing some role in this recall if not openly then behind the scenes.

    WRONG, its mainly mega corps for their puppet, Walker. Remember when Teddy R. was a 'trust buster'? Today's Pubbies are worker busters.
