Wisconsin T Party Xpress ping — Mark Neumann
FReep Mail me if you want on, or off this Wisconsin interest ping list.
We pretty much agree up and down about the issues.
These days, I am actually working in Wisconsin, and have a better feel for the local vibe.
At first, I was willing to support Thompson as a minimally acceptable conservative who could beat Baldwin without too much sweat. Even stalwarts like talk radio hosts Belling and the exceptional Vicki McKenna seemed good with that.
I then discovered how much Thompson has really turned off the actual WI base, and I think they should have a say in this race.
WI will be close. If voter ID weren’t stalled, I ‘d give it to Romney. As it is, I don’t know. Unlike the recall, they can’t bus in people from other states as much because PA and MI needs to keep their own boots on their own ground.
I see Hovde as vulnerable in the general election because he’s spent the last 24 years in Washington DC. He is running a clean as the wind-driven snow outsider who gave money to (former Dem. gov) Doyle in 2005. He does have good presence in ads, and of course can self-finance. To his credit, his attack ads were responss to other attack ads.
Neumann’s attack ads against are largely misleading (taking quotations out of context). Neumann also played attack dog against Walker last tme around. Typical maneuver for someone trying to come from behind.
Fitz has not gotten out of the starting blocks. Too bad, ‘cause he’s a solid guy who is probably running for the wrong office.
Thompson is a pretty establishment guy with an affable manner who can handle the race. I also found out he donated to Bev Perdue (Bev Perdue?!), reminding me that he is VERY establishment.
I do believe that any of the four can win, with Thompson having the easiest time of i (despite recent polls to the contrary). If Baldwin wins, she could be there for 30 years. She’s no dummy, just evil.
I concur, Jean. I would support Neumann over Thompson.
Project much ? I’ll put my record up against yours any day of the week, pal. I had two candidates I was supporting in Nebraska, both were Conservatives, and one of them prevailed. You were backing the RINO and misleading FReepers to support Bruning. Even after giving you article after article about Bruning, you scarcely acknowledged your “misjudgment.” You could’ve simply stated, “I’m sorry, I was wrong,” but your arrogance wouldn’t permit such.
I pointed out you were doing it again in the Wisconsin race and you seemed to flip out in righteous indignation. As I said, you’re acting like a schmuck and you’ll notice why nobody else who has any credibility on the subject of these political contests has come to your defense. Wisconsin FReepers have told you flat out that they’re not supporting Neumann. I’ve given you Neumann’s political history, and as with Bruning, you largely choose to ignore it and continue to pimp the candidacy of a bad candidate.
Simply put, what is your major malfunction, Private Pyle ?
Why is Neumann a poor choice, dj, I really don’t know but knew that he lost to Feingold in 1998?
This basically sums it up:
The incumbent freshman Democrat that Neumann barely beat in a rematch in ‘94, Peter Barca, has become more powerful in the years since, and is now the Assembly Democrat leader.
I’m listening to Mark Levin on ‘I <3 Radio’ and he just endorsed Neumann. I am surprised so many here dislike him so.
Because he is a demonstrably subpar (and has-been) candidate. Levin didn’t do his homework on this guy.
LOL, project much?
Sorry, it's hard to communicate with those with reading comprehension problems.
No it wasn’t.
So you think you know better than the grass roots activists of Wisconsin who know all of these guys, who’ve spoken to them many times, who watched them closely in previous positions and know their records? Wow - Presumptuous much?
Forget it, Lou. Syncro is certifiable.
You should believe my warnings about jumping on the Neumann bandwagon. I've been a Wisconsin-based state & federal government affairs pro for nearly 20 years.
Neumann is neither a GOP insider nor Tea Party outsider.
Wisconsin legislators can't stand him (please note that Neumann's politician endorsements are ALL from out of state).
State GOP leadership can't stand him.
Wisconsin Tea Partiers actively involved in GOP politics can't stand him (The Wisconsin GOP & local Tea Party groups are the most intertwined in the country).
Who does that leave as voting-eligible Wisconsin Neumann supporters?
1) Tea party outsiders who are new to politics.
2) Casual GOP and independent voters who recognize his name and prefer him to Thompson.
That's not normally a winning coalition. For that reason, if Neumann somehow survives the primary with a 30% plurality, he will have just a tepid party unification for the general election. I fear he would be too weak to beat Baldwin - weaker than if any of the other 3 candidates prevail in the primary.
You have me mixed up with someone else.
I never had anything to do with those fantasies.
It seems a lot of posters want to tell me what to do, and what I have done even if it isn’t true.
You guys are horrible examples of “conservatives”
If someone doesn’t go along with your opinions, you attack them.
No problem, you are both dismissed.
BTW, I am mingling with hundreds of WI Conservativers/Tea Partiers that support Neumann.
Which you both seem to want to ignore.
So you throw fits and attacks.
You might want to assess your methods of “communication”
Should get the malcontents going...

You might want to assess your methods of communication
Do you think carpet bombing messages from out-of-state carpet bagger organizations is an acceptable form of "communication"?
LouD, fieldmarshal & I have attempted to engage you in an actual discussion of Neumann's bona fides as a conservative and the views of Wisconsin FReepers & actual Wisconsin resident Tea Partiers.
Your response to date has been a series of inane accusations of "projection" and sidestepping of any substantive debate on Neumann's merits and faults.
You have not provided one iota of direct information as to why YOU support Neumann, much less why others should.
Please enlighten us as to why YOU think Neumann would be the best choice to be the GOP Senate nominee. I'll settle for why YOU think he is even a good choice.
