    Look, it's not that we don't want Scott Walker to succeed when it comes to jobs -- it's just that he's too blinded by his own ideology and his self-regard to work across the aisle or to abandon his own failed policies.
    If I understand correctly, these policies of his are not failures because they do exactly what he wants them to do: undermines the work force, undermines the traditions of unions, undermines education, undermines jobs, transfers buckets of money to the elites and taxes the middle class and the poor. His backers want just that. Dems have to get over themselves in trying to preach political correctness. OWN UP TO THE FACTS. These folks are tools of the Kochs and other pet billionaires. Only when you are clear sighted can you fight this nonsense.

      I hate it when Democrats try to couch what the GOP is doing as being a matter of incompetence.  The GOP is split into two parts - the strategists who run things like ALEC and the patsy's who believe the crap.  Even though Walker is probably a patsy who may have drunk the kool-aid and believed what he says (and therefore is incompetent), that doesn't mean the policies are failures.  They are doing exactly what the strategists he obeys wanted them to when they cause mass unemployment.  Desperate people will work for less.   That's not a mistake.  It's the intention.  And if you can attack education you get a triple benefit - you make people out of work in the education field AND you help make the next generation easier to manipulate by making them poorly educated AND you help fuel the perception that public schools are a bad idea and thus you help prop up your buddies in the homeschool and private school sectors.

        It never gets old for them...

        Help American return to sanity - vote the GOP OUT OF the House Majority and reduce their numbers in the Senate in 2014 elections. America requires Democratic action in order to survive!
