In Feingold loss, his base turns on its own

There are 75 comments on the TwinCities.com story from Nov 4, 2010, titled In Feingold loss, his base turns on its own. In it, TwinCities.com reports that:

The irony was lost on no one. Sen. Russ Feingold, a liberal with a fierce streak of independence who crusaded against the influence of money in politics, was toppled Tuesday in a campaign awash in the kind of unregulated cash he had struggled to keep out of the system.

One reason he lost: Obamacare.

This article is A COMPLETE AND UTTER LIE. Ron Johnson only raised 2.5 million dollars compared with 18.5 by Feingold, mostly from special interest groups. Look at the source of this article, the New York Times. That explains it. But it doesn't explain why the Pioneer Press would reprint such obvious drivel.

So what "outrageous spending" exactly are Obama and Dems being crucified for?
Umm.........Obamacare? Saying it would be under a $1 trillion dollars over 10 years, but making that number by cutting $500 billion out of medicare, then adding it back in as the "doc fix", that is reimbursing doctors at the old rate, and other underhanded deals that make it look cheaper than it really is. It also helps that they start taxing for it in 2011, but don't start providing benefits for several years after that.

We in Wisconsin are furious that Norm Coleman's slimey finger prints were all over Ron Johnson's fund raising. Coleman, once a populist hero as St. Paul's mayor, has descended into being a scurvy bag man, who collects and launders millions from Wall Street brokers and hedge fund managers who wanted to bring down Feingold and others who think they should should pay reasonable income taxes on their earnings like the rest of us do. Coleman is listed as Executive Director of Karl Rove designed shadowy front organizations such as American Action Network, Crossroads GPS and 60+ which dumped $6-10 million in outside funding into the Badger State. Shame on you Norm Coleman! And shame on this nation if we don't stop Texas oil men and Wall Street gamblers from destroying local and State democracy.

I know. Get used to it. The people that won yesterday are the new voters. They are voting out the incumbents, long term career politicians.

I compare Feingoldís loss to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. He is the purest of all the good Liberal values a politician can hold. He held true and honest to his base philosophy in much the same manner Ron Paul holds to his conservative value. Liberalism holds that all of us are one in this, where as conservatism holds that if everyone does well individually then everything is all fine. Conservatism is like having a beach without a Life Guard. If you are drowning then screw you. If you cannot swim donít go into the water and if something happens, like cramps or a shark or something, then so be it. It costs too much money to pay for Life Guards is the basic Gop-Tea principal.

Wow. Comparing Feingold's election loss to the event underlying the basis for Christianity.

Maybe you are right, you should follow Feingold, you can be the first Feingoldist, the one he will distribute his teachings through. I can see them now.

Though shalt not have more than thy neighbor.

Thou shalt not work hard to get ahead, else I shall take it all away and re-distribute it.

If thou dost work hard, the fruits of your self sacrifice and hard work must be shared with those who choseth not to.

and on and on..........
