  • Prosecutors allege that Gov. Scott Walker was at the center of an effort to illegally coordinate fundraising among conservative groups to help his campaign and those of Republican senators fend off recall elections during 2011 and '12, according to documents unsealed Thursday.

    In the documents, prosecutors lay out what they call a "criminal scheme" to bypass state election laws by Walker, his campaign and two top deputies — R.J. Johnson and Deborah Jordahl.

    The governor and his close confidants helped raise money and control spending through 12 conservative groups during the recall elections, according to the prosecutors' filings.

    The documents include an email in which Walker tells Karl Rove, former top adviser to President George W. Bush, that Johnson would lead the coordination campaign. Johnson is also chief adviser to Wisconsin Club for Growth, a conservative group active in the recall elections.

    Goal Thermometer Surprise surprise, Rove is involved.

    Gotcha again!!!!
    You are so befuddled by my CRUSHING analysis of white guys that your only defense is to lash out using your only tool.... your racism.

    I am not African American. I am a pale male of Irish descent. Yes, I do enjoy making fun of other white guys.

    Women will CRUSH the GOP in November

    See, your thoughts are part of the white male thought process. Let me explain. NO woman wants abortion. However, they want that choice WITHOUT any interference from flabby middle aged white males. THAT is why women will CRUSH the GOP.

    Here is another example of white male ignorance of women, and why they perpetuate the war on women. Of all the flabby middle aged white males across the Old Confederacy, that loudly proclaimed their superior knowledge of women and their health needs, and using that knowledge to restrict women's choices, because they know better, the flabby white guys NEVER asked a women why she would want to have an abortion. Not a single woman was asked, yet the white guys put in highly restrictive and intrusive requirements for women and their health choices.

    The main symbol of the GOP War on Women is the mandatory state-sponsored rape of women that are seeking an abortion. All because of white guys.

    The Republican Party has failed to understand the toxicity of impeachment. They were completely blinded by rage against Clinton. He was and continues to be wildly popular as he finished his presidency AND his current status.

    It would be a death sentence for the GOP to actually do such a thing to Obama. He is PERSONALLY liked by over 70% of Americans. Hate from the far right based solely on skin tone will kill the GOP. Particularly among women and people of color.

    However, that said, the lame duck session after the November elections will be the time that they will try it.

    The fact that women have been subjected to intrusive invasion of their health choices by flabby middle aged white men. Abortion restriction, dictated by flabby middle aged white men, reproductive restrictions dictated by flabby middle aged white men, House sub committees discussing women's health choices to catholic priests when the committee is exclusively flabby white males. Women being denied access to Planned Parenthood by flabby middle aged white men.

    The fundamental underpinning is the premise by white males that women are not fit to make their own decisions about their health and reproductive rights.

    That is just the beginning. But it is enough.

    Drooling idiot.
    Nixon had plenty of evidence against him to support the impeachment process.

    So far, NOTHING to support any impeachment...... except for dark skin tone for Obama.

    Nixon was never impeached, idiot. He resigned in the face of charges of conspiracy, both political and criminal.
    Using the CIA to monitor Americans was far more devastating. That was when the "wall" between agencies was formed..... not during the Clinton years. It kept agencies from collaborating to target individual citizens.

    Yes, you were a 3rd grade drop out.

    Wage disparity is real, but it is not the top concern for women. Women's health and their right to make decisions about their health and their sexual choices about when and with whom to have sex is a top concern.

    They DO NOT want flabby middle-aged white males making those decisions about women's bodies, health, and choices.

    Also calling the Democratic candidate for governor in Texas "Abortion" Barbie is an insult to women across the country.

  • ....threatening to shut the government down AGAIN. Please, please, pleeeeeeasssssssseeeee do it.

    I'll be honest, my first reaction was to laugh at the notion that Republicans would consider another shutdown, especially given that in an otherwise rough poll released today by NBC and the Wall Street Journal, the public strongly supports the Obama administration's position on stronger regulations to prevent global warming over the coal industry's pro-pollution agenda.

    But then I remembered I didn't think Republicans would be crazy enough to shut the government down over Obamacare, yet they did.

    And if they were willing to shut down the government to prevent a program that is now delivering affordable health insurance to millions of Americans who were previously without coverage, then there's no reason to assume they wouldn't do it again over something that their financial backers are demanding.

    I still have trouble imagining it happening, but with today's GOP, truth is stranger than fiction. Just ask Eric Cantor.

    Hispanics are dissatisfied with the administration's aggressive deportation of undocumented migrants.

    However, the GOP is actively blocking immigration reform and amnesty for those already here. Since you live in a lilly white world, your analysis of Hispanics running to the GOP (remember "self-deport") is laughable.

    What the writer(s) are not mentioning is that the modeling and the predictions about global warming were off. The reality is that their predictions are occurring much FASTER THAN PREDICTED.

    Here is where the authors are actively deceiving the reader:

    "Anyhow, computer models of climate can never be superior to the knowledge based understanding derived from experiments and classic field observations. Models may prove powerful instruments in improving our understanding of complicated laws and process associations. But until the empirical knowledge coded into them is perfect and comprehensive, they still have to be considered as predictive tools with many limitations. "

    When the models predictions are accurate beyond empirical measure, i.e., the predictions are happening sooner and FASTER than predicted, the models are far more accurate than any field observation. The bias is in the writer.

  • The latest NBC/Wall Street Journal poll isn't good news for President Barack Obama.

    On the other hand, he's not running for re-election.

    On the other hand, Republicans are, and the data is brutal.
    Hillary Clinton: 44 positive, 37 negative, +7
    Democratic Party: 38 positive , 40 negative, -2
    Barack Obama: 41 positive, 45 negative, -4
    Republican Party: 29 positive, 45 negative, -16
    Tea Party: 22 positive, 41 negative, -19

    Republicans might have a better chance of taking advantage of Obama's weak numbers if, you know, their own numbers weren't in the gutter.

    And we don't need to throw Republicans any anvils as long as the tea party is doing it for us. Meanwhile, women hold the keys to November.

    Republicans are in worse shape now than they were four years ago, too [...] Views of the Tea Party are even worse, with 22% seeing it in a favorable light and 41% in a negative one. In June 2010, the Tea Party’s fav/unfav was at a positive 34%-31%. That perhaps helps explain why Democrats in our current NBC/WSJ poll have a two-point advantage on congressional preference, 45%-43%, despite the brutal numbers for Obama. And then there’s this BIG difference: At this point in 2010, Democrats had a narrow congressional-preference lead with women (44%-43%), and the GOP had a significant advantage with white women (51%-36%). Now? Democrats hold a double-digit with all women (50%-38%), and white women are pretty much a jump ball (GOP 45%, Dems 44%). As we’ve said before, female voters -- and female candidates -- are likely to decide the outcome of the midterm elections and specifically control of the U.S. Senate.

    For the math lazy among us, that's an 11-point gain among all women, and a 14-point gain among white women. More evidence of the power of the woman vote this year?

    I had hoped that you actually read a peer reviewed journal to make the claims of bias in predictive models. Surely you can point out where the bias exists. And if so, get it published because that is extremely important.

    BTW, what specifically was the foundation for your claim of bias?

    Improving ACA has never been a part of the GOP. However, they are going to have to do something to improve it, as the pressure from voters will be overwhelming.

    There has never been ANY other means of paying for ACA than taxpayer contributions. However, those contributions are FAR less than the costs we taxpayers incur because of trips to the ER by the uninsured.

    It is a win for the entire country, and it is the first step in getting the US up to standard in the health of it's citizens.

    President Obama has long described the political aftermath of the attacks in Benghazi, Libya, as a “sideshow,” a running series of partisan theatrics designed to embarrass the administration and inflame the conservative base.

    It is now, for the first time in nearly two years, at the center of the American political conversation on terms Obama very much favors.

    The weekend capture of Ahmed Abu Khattala, one of the suspected ringleaders of the Sept. 11, 2012, assaults on a U.S. diplomatic compound and a CIA-run annex, gives Obama another I-told-you-so moment in Washington’s scorekeeping culture.
