Exclusive: Daily Kos Spearheading Efforts to Recall Republican Wisconsin Senators
Pundit Press ^ | 3/7/11 | Aurelius

Posted on 03/07/2011 2:05:50 PM PST by therightliveswithus

Do you already think that State Senators fleeing a state to prevent a vote by rightfully elected officials is underhanded? How about protesters handing out fake doctors notes? Well, here's the newest underhanded campaign by the Left in Wisconsin: Daily Kos is pushing for and collecting signatures for the recall of Republican State Senators in the state.

In an email... Kos's Campaign Director explains in a poorly written email about the plan.

"Scott Walker was threatening to fire a bunch of people," he writes. In response, "the Democratic Party of Wisconsin was collecting recall petition signatures, threatening to fire Scott Walker's Senators." In other words, Senators that are in agreement with Governor Scott Walker to, you know, balance the state's budget...

"We are winning this fight," he adds, using imagery that the Left whined and wailed against just two months ago.

He ends his delusional email with: "Man, it sure feels good to be winning. It will feel even better when we win."

Hypocrisy and dirty tricks........the cornerstones of the left. The more they get their asses handed to them, the more desperate, pathetic and unhinged they become. This country is in such need of a MAJOR CORRECTION it is unbelievable. Personally, I think nothing short of another Civil War is going to do it

I got a hand addressed (Just PO box number and zip) envelope today that was postmarked phoenix Arizona.

Inside was an index card with the hand written words “Think about our heroes. Recall now”.

I’m in Michigan BTW.

Recall our 8 and we’ll recall or expel their 14.

The GOP can pass a law at anytime that a legislator that misses so many session is automatically expelled and the Rats would have to return to challenge the law.

I hope things don't get violent and I'm still optimistic that the 2012 election will be victorious for our side. But the left is going to get nasty if they think they're on the verge of being kicked out of power and there's no telling what measures they will try to take to keep power. Be prepared.

It’s just snake oil. Delusional is a pre-req to join the POS cadre. Markkkos got his azz handed to him astroturfing Loughner, and after it was discovered he also gave diary space to what was by all accounts the initial suspect.

Watch out for forged signatures on the recall petitions.

“”Man, it sure feels good to be winning. It will feel even better when we win.”

This libtard sounds just like Charlie Sheen. Hey! Charlie is available to be their leader now. There couldn’t be a better fit.

By “heroes” were they referring to the cowards who tucked tail and split rather than let the legistlative process work like it’s supposed to.

How utterly pathetic an excuse for a person do you have to be when slimy, spineless cowards are your heroes.

When I think of heroes, I think of Ronald Reagan, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln. I think of all the brave servicemen and women who sacrificed greatly during WWII to stop the Germans and the Japanese and I think of all the brave soldiers I have had the privledge to go to combat with over 4 combat tours.

When I think of those worthless libs who split rather than do their job, even if they knew they were going to lose the vote, the only words that come to my mind are spineless, unscrupulous, gutless COWARDS.

This is not about a recall. It's simply a fund-raising scam based on an emotional issue.

I could never hold office. At this point if I was an elected official in Wisconsin I’d call a press conference and let them have it with a long tirade of profanity telling them they can shut the damned state down for all I care. The last thing I’d say is “When it has all crashed and NONE of you union members are getting paid anything and you want something done about it, call me.” Then I’d walk off and let the communists have it.

That’s all these Lefties do is take our ideas(for Democrats)and try to promote them as their own with lies. How original do you have to be to mimic?

If you examine the rough attitude of Americans in 1840 to 1860....I believe you’d find that we are rapidly approaching the same situation. As for the recall? Well....if you talk folks into dumping money into this...and the vote occurs this year...which it could....and the Republicans all win (which I believe they could)...then they flushed millions down the toilet in a year before the election. That’s the most stupid strategy that anyone could dream up to waste money.

The REAL HEROES are the TAXPAYERS

When more than half the people work for the government in some form, local, state, schools, or federal, we have reached the point of no return.

We HAVE reached that point.

We need to fight Fire with Fire.

Please—will someone who knows send a link where I can contribute to Wisconsin DEMOCRATIC Senator recalls. Only 8 of the 14 fleebaggers (who were elected in 2008) are subject to recall. We should focus on recalling those in swing ditricts. We need to beat the kos folks at their own game. How can I help?

To: MillardFillmore; Admin Moderator

To answer my own question on how we fight kos’s effort wirth our own effort (above) did some research

The Dem Senator that should be the biggest target is
Jim Holperin of the 12th Senate District (D-Rhinelander).

He was elected from the district that had the lowest Obama total 53% Obama- 46% Mccain.

Bush won his district 53%-46% over Kerry in 2004 so it’s a swing state senate district.

He was elected in 2008 (as required by Wisconsin law). He’s in his first term. Holperin only won by a 3% margin.

http://recalljim.com/ is the link. Looks legit. I plan to send them some dough.

Can we get the Admin Moderator to help get more notice for an effort to donate funds to such efforts?

We need to get as many D’s recalled as possible in case the D’s sucessfully get one of the R’s recalled.
