    WI Fleebagger Leader Says Dems Will Return Home & Vote on Senate Bill

    Maybe the Wisconsin fleebaggers didn’t want to pay the $100 a day fine for missing work?

    The leader of the Wisconsin fleebaggers told reporters today that the AWOL democrats may return home soon because negotiations with Governor Scott Walker have failed.
    Huh?… Then why did they ever skip town in the first place?

    The Wall Street Journal reported:


    LOL....so the Dems are attempting to say the polls were hurting the Governor and that they can return now because they wll have more leverage...on a bill that can't be amended....way to spin it Fleebaggers! :lol:

    Not a surprise at all.

    They first went AWOL on 2/17.

    They only have 12 days to return before the Senate could remove them without a recall.

    They've known all along they lost the battle, they were only posturing for the surrender.

    Democrats aren't the sharpest tools in the shed and they keep proving it.

    I always puzzle at how people get so involved over the politics of another state. What Wisconsin lawmakers do or don't do is a between them and their constituents. The rest of us don't have a place to take exception or not.

    Wisconsin Democrats Announce Recall Effort Against 8 Republican State Senators | FDL News Desk

    The Wisconsin State Democratic Party just sent out an email to supporters announcing that they have officially filed recall papers against all 8 Republican Senators eligible for recall immediately. Depending on their success in gathering enough signatures – and the threshold is not too high, they need between 14,000 and 20,000 signatures in the various districts – the State Senate will be up for grabs in Wisconsin as early as this year.

    The filing of recall papers starts a 60-day clock for signature gathering. Then the signatures are examined and challenges made, but if the recall petition meets all requirements, the recall begins just 6 weeks later. Recalls in Wisconsin include primaries and general elections; it’s basically a do-over special election.

    The Wisconsin Democratic Party, which asked for donations to fund the recall effort, wrote this in their email, which provides some clues as to their intentions:

    Too bad that they filed about a week and a half AFTER recall petitions were filed against the Fleebagging Democrats!

    LOL.....I wonder why Obama stuck his nose into Wisconsin politics then and commented as well as got involved in sending his AstroTurf Mobs by way of the DNC, OFA, SEIU, ACORN, and other unions (including 150 US Postal Workers from Chicago)?

    Of course Gov. Walker had the best line about Obama sticking his nose into Wisconsin politics when he said "When the President get's HIS budget problem in order, he can stick his nose into ours".

    I didn't realize so many of the fleebaggers were eligible for recall. There are petitions against 13 of the 14 who ran away.

    What? I never said anything about state isolation. I said that only that state's constituents have any place to complain about what the state officials are doing. Regardless of whether I think the what the Wisconsin legislators did was right or wrong or whatever, it's the Wisconsin voters who actually make that decision. What do I care if they left the state or not? I didn't elect them, they don't represent me, they don't answer to me. Why are so many people wanting to control the politics of a state in which they don't live?
