President Walker turns WI into a red state for President Romney

REPORT: A Disappointing Turnout For The Obama Rally In Madison, Wisconsin.“Meade is on the scene, where he talked to a police officer who said they’d planned for 30,000 but were estimating the crowd at 15,000. And Meade encountered a friend who said he’d heard reports that it would be a nightmare trying to park downtown, but he pulled into a parking garage and was the first car there.”

I was in Wal-Mart just the other day and overheard a woman who looked completely stressed out say with a lot of sadness in her voice "prices are going up..."

Almost made me cry. Truly. Especially when I saw how little costs so much when I checked out myself.

It's the elistists who are the most unaffected. For now anyway.

So if Romney wins....

In this section of the interview, Rev. Al was discussing a passage from Robert Draper‘s Do Not Ask What Good We Do in which Gingrich participates in an Inauguration Night meeting with Republican Congressional leaders to plot their return to power, vowing to “show united and unyielding opposition to the president’s economic policies.”

Gingrich not only admitted to being at the meeting, he told Rev. Al that he was “glad and honored to be part of it.”

He then tried to lay the meeting off as typical politics.“Don’t you think that in 2001 when George W. Bush was being inaugurated, a group of Democrats got together and said ‘how do we get the White House?’”

“No,” Sharpton replied.“There is a qualitative difference between ‘how do we get the White House,’ and that we are committed tonight to block everything he does, we are going to be relentless and really care nothing about the fact that he was inheriting the worst economy since the depression, by a member of your party.”

Rev. Sharpton had Gingrich and the Republicans dead to rights, there. Every opposition party works to regain their majority, but the priority is to govern, and to enact the best policies they can. If those policies work out, then people vote for you. That’s how it works. The Republicans basically went on strike the night Obama was inaugurated.

And if he does, you better get used to seeing the above posted ad nausem for years to come.

Keep up with your lame nonsense, Carol. Care to address all the things Romney said in the past which he now denies?? The list is very long, everything from abortion to climate change.

I didn't think so.

You're just another scared old white lady. Your racism has been apparent for years here, though you deny it.

Your hatred for Obama is all about his race, you've not fooled anyone.

And you'll have four more years to hate him!!

Twenty-five percent (25%) of likely Wisconsin voters have already voted, and the president leads 56% to 41% among these voters.

The average American will owe $2000.00 more for taxes, in 2013
90% of Americans live pay check to pay check ,they will have to get a personnel, one year loan charging 15% interest, Every Year !!!
Take what you made this year and multiply it by 4.5%. That's what you will owe the IRS.
you can find these tax increases for 2013 on the web.
I thought James Madison was one of our statesmen in history.

Now I see he is a lying POS dumbass Right whiner.

The rates only go up if your hero Paul Ryan & his hoard of antiAmerican fellow Republicans don't act.

Obama can't do anything on this unless Congress acts. If Paul Ryan & his buddies continue to stick it to the working man, then the rates return by law. A law Republicans voted for.

So really., peddle your pack of lies elsewhere.

Nonsense. 2007 Democrats sabotaged the economy by driving up energy costs and collapsed the financial sector with sub prime loans extorted from bankers. The Kenyan's communist coup made the economy worse.

Democrats are 100% responsible for the economic misery of America.

He's neither far left nor radical, but you certainly are a dyed-in-the-wool racist, dumb carol. You're clearly not playing with a full deck, but all fifty-one of yours are race cards and you deal them from the bottom. You might be a little more suspicious of those 'powers that be' that think we need a vampire capitalist Mormon bishop war-mongering draft dodger as POTUS.

Another right whiner wanting not only to place the blame of the recession on Obama but also blame him for the debt run up by Paul Ryan & George Bush.

We had balanced budgets & a surplus on the path to paying down our debt.

But Paul Ryan said nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooo, and he & his Republicans voted to take us off that path.

On purpose!!!!!

Then the sniveling little weasel Ryan runs around bitching about deficits & debt. Where is his apology to the American people???

So why do you support the Party that caters to elitists??

You're very confused. Rmoney is all about the elitists, with his multiple homes and offshore accounts.

Yet you're dumb enough to believe he's just like you, but for a few hundred million in offshore accounts.

Hope you're ready for the Obama landslide!!

Since 1981, National Journal's annual vote ratings have defined where members of Congress stand ideologically. The ratings rank lawmakers on how they vote relative to each other on a conservative-to-liberal scale in both the Senate and the House. The scores are based on the members' votes in three areas: economic issues, social issues, and foreign policy.

Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., was the most liberal senator in 2007, based on National Journal ’s vote ratings. He shifted further to the left last year in the run-up to the presidential primaries, after ranking as the 16th- and 10th-most-liberal during his first two years in the Senate. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., also shifted to the left last year, although she has generally been more moderate in the ratings than her Democratic presidential rival.
