    Are WI Republicans fighting the recall hard enough?

    Are WI Republicans fighting the recall hard enough?

    The recall petition drive against Scott Walker has more than a month left to get the required 544,000 signatures.  Organizers assert that over 300,000 already have been collected,

    The assumption has to be that they will get enough signatures and that there will be a recall election sometime in the spring.

    Christian Schneider says it’s time for Walker to start hitting harder:

    Each one of Walker’s three television ads to date feature someone in the education field (teacher, school board member) explaining that they are standing behind Walker for making the tough choices to balance the state’s $3.6 billion budget deficit. Two of the ads end with Walker himself calmly reassuring voters that Wisconsin’s best days are ahead. (The teacher in the second ad recently revealed she has been receiving threats for appearing in a pro-Walker advertisement.)

    The ads are well produced. They make excellent, well-reasoned points and adequately defend Walker’s position. They are also a complete and total waste of money….

    Wisconsin has become a place where public vulgarity is not only tolerated, but expected (here’s a compendium of people online inviting Walker to engage in intercourse with himself. Language warning, of course).

    The message is simple: If Walker is recalled, these people win. Their grotesque tactics will be vindicated, further ripping the state apart. Wisconsin will cease being the state its residents love; it will instead be a place where threats and intimidation reign.

    Wisconsinites get this.

    I agree.  The unions and their supporters have been profane, violent, malicious and crude.  Don’t do the same thing, but run endless commercials showing who wins if Walker gets recalled.

    The network for evaluating the recall signatures needs to be in place long before the signatures are turned in. Have volunteers in place, with duplicity of effort, to enter the names and addresses into compatible spreadsheet pages. A central group would then compile the names, checking for wrong addresses, multiple or artificial submissions. Having a multiplicity of checkers means Democratic-fascist-socialist-progressive plants, who might approve of false names, would be caught by the other, honest, volunteers. The petitions I have seen on the GAB web site were either the handwritten signatures, or typed names. But both were as images, not a text which could be manipulated. Getting that network ready in advance is vital. Once the petitioners submit their signatures, the GAB is not going to be sympathetic to giving Walker time to review the signatures.

    What is being done to protect the Lieutenant-Governor? Aren’t there a few Senators also threatened with recall? What spoiled brats we’re dealing with, and what a mess they are making!

    This is slightly off-topic, but encouraging, regarding the union hold in Wisconsin’s schools:

    @ Milwaukee:
