    During the entire Scott Walker recall debacle, Obama didn't have time to stop and try to help the dem candidate. He knew the guy was going to lose, so he didn't bother. No need to be visible on a losing run.

    So will the Dems in Wisconsin hold that against him?? Sure he'll have his die hard group that wouldn't think of voting against him but the Unions are kinda p*ssed at him for not showing up and scheduling the DNC in a non-union state. They aren't funneling the money his way, they are saying they're broke.

    Unions hit Democratic convention where it hurts: In the wallet - Robin Bravender and Anna Palmer - POLITICO.com

    Wisconsin is in the President's column. Firmly.

    I wouldn't count on it. There has been movement towards Romney and there's 3 months to go. Check the polls if you want to believe them.

    Don't be so confident! The Gov vote is a statewide vote. Walker is right of Romney and he won easily in the faux recall (first recall victory in US history)!

    That ship has sailed on my confidence.

    Here is what conservatives on this board think about Romney:

    As for the gubenatorial recall election; it was ill conceived and the voters exhibited that. It should be noted that reportedly, the Democrats took back the Senate in the same election.

    Obama has this locked up.

    I fully think that OH, WIS, FLA, NC, VA, and COL are all in play for Romney (NH, IA, and NV won't matter much)... I think when the debates start, it will be even closer than it is now... I think Ryan actually helps in the debates... agree or disagree with his budget proposals, it puts focus on the economy, which is a very weak point for Obamalama

    You mean, they took back an out of session Senate. Out of session until AFTER the November election. How is that a positive for them???

    OH..no
    WIS...hell no
    FLA...not with Ryan
    NC...Romney's
    VA...Not with Ryan
    CO...perhaps.

    Ryans budget proposals include wiping out the Cap Gains tax:

    Mitt Romney Would Pay 0.82 Percent in Taxes Under Paul Ryan's Plan - Matthew O'Brien - The Atlantic

    The Governor would pay 0.82% under the plan...down from the 15% he paid on the tax returns he did reveal.

    Yeah...put a big old spotlight on that one! Most Americans don't live off of investment income...by the way.

    Shows that the Democratic Party is strong there. You'll see in November.
