Good job to whoever’s doing this. Everywhere he goes he must be taunted, reminded that his days as president will be coming to and end this fall.
Political observers say Obama remains the odds-on favorite to win Wisconsin’s 10 electoral votes, a sentiment reflected in exit polls showing the president leading Mitt Romney by a healthy margin.
But they say Team Obama should be shaken by the recall results, which highlighted a strong GOP ground game — including the influx of corporate and special-interest money — headed into the November election.
“Republicans here are quite energized at the moment,” Burden said. “They’ve built an operation and they’re advantaged in the state right now. I’m sure the Romney campaign would want to build on that.”
The result energized Republicans across the country — even in the liberal bastion of San Francisco. Obama, visiting the City by the Bay for a fundraiser on Wednesday, was greeted by signs reading, “As goes WI goes the USA” and “The People 1, Unions 0,” according to a pool report.
Democrats are still pretending they were outspent 8 to 1. It’s simply not true.
“In 2010, we did not lose the House to House Republicans,” Israel told The Hill. “We lost it to Karl Rove and the Koch brothers. In 2012, we did not lose the Wisconsin recall to Gov. Walker, we lost it to an 8-to-1 spending differential, most from out of the state.
How convenient they ignore the unions they’re joined at the hip with. It’s just brazenly dishonest for them and the media to repeat this lie.
Meanwhile, while at one of his 47 fundraisers in California today, Obama thanked himself and the government for creating the Internet and entire new industries. Thanks Obama!
The internet, “together we made that investment.” and “entire new industries have been formed.”
