So many of these people support Marxist Liberal Progressives just because they get a FAT paycheck with bennies far about the regular working class.

It all about MONEY in America, no more, no less.

There's a revolution going on in this country right now that many of the union members are still in denial about. Wisconsin should be their wake-up call.

It means that Scott Walker’s agenda is done now that the Democrats control the Wisconsin Senate.
I love the way Walker did a complete 180 last night talking about cooperation and working with the Democrats… he was practically begging for the Democrats to work with him; and with all the exit polling showing President Obama beating RINO Romney in Wisconsin this November it has throw cold water on what otherwise would have been considered a success, LOL.

"Denial" is the key word. Jennifer Rubin (Washington Post) just suggested that the mascot of the Democrat Party be changed from donkey to ostrich.

Are these the very same exit polls that showed the governor race at a dead heat all the way to the end?

Romney isn't even our nominee yet, and there are several months before the election. If Wisconsin was a Republican or swing state, you might have a somewhat valid point. But Wisconsin is a liberal state. What would you expect exit polls to show?

What you witnessed yesterday is our future: people waking up and leaving the liberals behind. You owe it all to your beloved President. He, Piglosi and Reid showed us what a liberal America would look like, and nobody wanted it. How many state workers left the union when they had the ability to do so in Wisconsin?

What it means is that unions and their minions are going to have to reach a little deeper into their own pockets instead of helping themselves to what is in the tax payers pockets.

Yes! When the first (phony) exit polls were announced, Wolf Blitzer (CNN) spoke of a “50-50 race with implications for November!” I haven’t seen the man so wee-weed up in years. An hour later, as the real returns came in, Ole Blitz calmed down and acted as if he were reporting a funeral.

Silly barracks queen, the dem victory is nothing but a side note. The Wisconsin senate is out of session until after the November elections and 16 seats will be up for grabs in November. Get ready for another beat down queenie because you and your lefty ilk are gonna get it again this November.

LOL, you don’t even know what an exit poll is… and most polls showed Walker with a 7 point lead over the past few weeks… and he won by 7 points… go look at what most polls in Wisconsin show President Obama beating RINO Romney by, and then compare that to what those exit polls revealed last night.

President Obama will win Wisconsin again.

i agree, we did witness the future!
between the lame-brained progressives in washington you named, and the lamer=brained media the backbone of america got a very good look at what COULD happen...
and they came out with strong resolve to deny it from happening!
just like they will in november!

yay!

The crazy part is all Walker did was ask the government employees to pay 7 percent into their pensions, instead of zero percent. It's too much to ask?? I don't get Ed Schultz at all. You know, those pensions are paid for by all of the taxpayers in every state. And, when they raise the state sales tax,(CA is now over 9 percent), even people who are on welfare pay that big tax, so why does Schultz support this stuff? Why is he having people who work at Walmart be taxed to give other people $75,000 to $250,000 state pensions in CA and he was saying it takes food off of their tables if they have to pay 12 percent for their health care. For god's sake, do they really need $5,000 a month for food? Really? And, the Dems are cutting and cutting on welfare programs to keep those big pensions, but the Dems are supposed to be all for welfare, for the "poor." It's like MSNBC is done. It's back in 1965. I think it is going to go off of the air, especially if Romney wins. They have no issue to support. All they are doing is supporting welfare, but then cutting welfare to give out huge government pensions and supporting huge pensions that are paid for by the people, and a lot of them are poor people. It makes no sense.

To paraphrase, Walker's win trumps the loss.

After the November election the State Senate will be Republican again. The people have lost faith in the Democrats after they saw their behavior in the State house acting like wild animals. They left a huge mess to clean up. It was disgusting. That is part of the reason they were turned out yesterday. That, and the fact they ran to Illinois like little girls to keep from doing their jobs when they were losing in the legislature. Spoiled brats who have always had their way until now.
