So Walker is among the five favorites of a couple of billionaires who have enough money to run self-aggrandizing ads on the nightly news?

The Koch ‘Endorsement’ of Scott Walker Never Really Happened

A couple hours after the Times story broke, David Koch clarified what he had really said. “While I think Governor Walker is terrific, let me be clear, I am not endorsing or supporting any candidate for president at this point in time,” he said in a statement.

Lets turn this thread around and ask the question.

Why would anyone support such a corrupted Presidential Candidate like Ms. Clinton? Do you realize there people in prison because they refuse to testify against the Clintons (White Water). Ms. Susan Doogle a bell?

She has pay offs as Sectary of State and had unauthorized e-mail that has disappeared. If Clinton was a Republican you would be demanding their arrest and dropping as a Presidential hopeful.

Why is Clinton leading as a Dem. Because the party has dictated Hilary as the one. Bad for Dem good for the GOP.
First of all, there are 25 boring "Hillary-is-horrible" threads going at any given moment in the P&C forum, but you still want to talk about how much you hate her in a Scott Walker thread? Your hate-Hillary obsession says more about you than her.

Your obsessive hate for Hillary, overuse of emoticons and bolding notwithstanding, Walker's popularity in Wisconsin has taken a nosedive. Personally, I find that more meaningful than your off-topic criticism of Hillary Clinton. If he's doing such a great job, why are Wisconsinites liking him less? Walker must be doing something wrong!

Dumb Scott is a perfect stooge for the Koch Reptiles.

Hopefully they'll throw billions at the soft eagle scout's (inevitably doomed) campaign...

sigh.. You have no idea but continue to post. FEMA is a perfect example. Wisconson pays into the system on FEMA. It's THEIR money. That's another problem you have at times. The inability to take the thought process to the next level.
Get it now?

You post links but don't have the ability to expand on that or take the thought process to the next level. I just showed you in my post right before this. Like I said, at times you just post the link.

Once again, ALL governments balance budgets by borrowing, what part of this is difficult for you?

Obama has balanced the budget by borrowing upwards of 8 TRILLION dollars..

So if I created a thread citing a story I would write, showing Obama balanced the budget, by borrowing, you'd be equally appalled? Can I expect you to source the story on anti Obama threads?

So you admit he wasnt endorsed, meaning the other posters demand for "accuracy", stopped when it involves his own statements.
