You rock, Ed Schultz. DNC really MUST donate to help WI get rid of Scott Walker.
But I fear he will be thrown under the bus like so many others have for so long. It's getting pretty crowded under there. It's uncomfortable to ask your own party to be accountable. You end up under the bus.

The DNC won't commit to $500,000 for the Wisconsin Democrats.

Ed is right, they need to do the right thing.

1. it's very important to help WI get that numskull out!
And I'll always refuse to toe the party line on every policy just because some say we have to. Anyhow, It's shady under the bus, so I'm content! :rofl:

2. Link to Daily Kos story and link to Act Blue to donate to recalls:

Daily Kos story: DNC refusing money to defeat Walker (and other recalled candidates):

Link to Act Blue to donate to recalls, given on the website of the Wisconsin Democratic Party

Ask Senator Martha Coakley how much help she got from national Democrats when she was running against Scott Brown. Oh, wait.....

4. And with all that huge amount of recs...it is not on the rec list there.
at least I can not find it going back 4 pages of rec lists. It was posted around noon yesterday, so how did it disappear so quickly?

5. Wow, madfloridian, we have been down this awful road before.
When I heard the story about the DNC refusing to support the Democrats in the pitched battle in Wisconsin to oust Scott Walker, I flashed back to this.


And this.

And this.

And this.

And this.




We've seen what happens when we have inadequate party leadership. It leads to destructive outcomes like this.


But, when the peons like ourselves point it out before it happens, we are told to sit down and shut up.


We don't forget things like this.



Good luck, Wisconsin Democrats. As far as the DNC is concerned, you are on your own.


If the millions of secretive, out-of-state corporate dollars pumped into keeping Scott Walker in office are successful, it will endanger an Obama win in Wisconsin, as well as give unbridled license to the GOP to unleash more of this unchecked poison into other states.


What interesting times we live in, madfloridian.


We aren't taking this lying down.

6. And then there was Mahoney who said he owed the party nothing, was pro-choice off and on.
Tim Mahoney, FL Democrat : ''I don't owe the party anything"

"This is what you get when your party leaders hightail it down to South Florida to pick a millionaire Republican to run as a Democrat while kicking good Democrats out of the race. Rahm Emanuel and Karen Thurman did just that when they recruited millionaire Republican businessman, Tim Mahoney, to run for Mark Foley's seat."

Aha, found it. Mahoney: "in this room, I am pro-choice, here."

"Mahoneys response was that he stood where the district stood on the issues. Specifically, on abortion he said in this room, I am pro-choice, here."

Being pro-choice in one room is not good enough, because hearsay is that he already told the rural community in the district that he is anti-choice."

7. I missed it yesterday, but he was back on the DNC today
and so were a bunch of his callers! Some of the callers were pissed off and i wondered if anyone in the DNC was listening.

I received something in my e-mail a day or 2 ago to make donations to the effort in WI and I need to find it again and do that.

I just responded to an e-mail request from Chelsea Handler on behalf of the HRC and I donated immediately. I wish that I knew how to pull an e-mail into a post, as hers had me fired up, yet almost in tears.
