    Is this a portent of things to come?

    The latest on the Scott Walker recall shows him 6 points ahead with no real change from April's poll. The election is in 19 days.

    Yet here is a headline from today

    Democrats balk on Walker recall election


    Democrats balk on Walker recall election | Washington Times Communities

    The majority of polls show Walker once against beating Barrett, with a recent Public Policy Polling poll showing Walker garnering 50 percent of the vote to Barrett’s 45 percent.

    This 5 percent margin was unchanged since PPP last polled Wisconsin voters in April, showing that the May 8 Democratic primary did nothing to help boost Barrett’s chances at beating Walker in June.

    However, Barrett’s failure to catch steam might be at the fault of the Democratic National Committee (DNC). In an exclusive report by the Washington Post, top Wisconsin Democrats are furious at the DNC for not helping to fund Barrett’s gubernatorial bid against Walker.

    “We are frustrated by the lack of support from the Democratic National Committee and the Democratic Governors Association,” a top Wisconsin Democratic Party official told the Washington Post. “Scott Walker has the full support and backing of the Republican Party and all its tentacles. We are not getting similar support.”


    Are they that short of cash? Are the donations really that weak that the DNC can allow Walker to win without even a smidgen of an attempt to help?

    This race truly is seen as a crippling blow to unions nationwide should Walker win. Do the Dems not understand that? Or are they simply unable financially to do anything about it?

    Interesting to say the least.....................

    They need all the money for the reelection of Obama.
    Plus the Dem's had a hard time picking who would run against Walker.

    It's because many Dems know that while they hate Walker because he is (R) they know a Dem would just spend thir shit into the ground.

    Govt unions have hold of too much power. They are turning on the very people who pay their salaries. The American people are the boss, not the govt union. They're learning that lesson now.

    Does Buford have it right??

    We The people Have Had Enough


    We've seen the angry but civilized group of people who formed the Tea Party. They have had a clear impact on our political system and changed the face of the Republican party.

    Now we see a Democrat party that appears to be flailing and perhaps financially weakened, the direct result of "we the people" refusing to contribute to keep that boat afloat.

    Whether we're consciously aware or not, I think we're seeing signs of a silent revolution involving people of all political bents that may permanently alter the face of both parties.


    We The people Have Had Enough


    "We" doesn't mean Dem or Pub or Indie. It means ALL of us.
