    First it was a Republican victory in Wisconsin, a Republican victory in Minnesota today, and a Republican victory in Washington tomorrow. Looks like the Republicans have "The Big Mo" working for them.

    The common theme is smaller government and more focus on personal responsibility.

    Who walked out in this talk?

    No one.

    So, I'm not sure why you keep on bringing up Wisconsin.

    David Vitter is still in office after cheating on his wife.

    And the only people who 'smell blood' are in your head.

    This is starting to look like a repeat of the Wisconsin budget battle that was won by Republican Gov. Scott Walker. The voters backed him up by voting Republican conservative Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice David Prosser back into office over his liberal-supported challenger, Assistant Attorney General JoAnne Kloppenburg.

    It's what we call rubbing salt into the liberal's wounds. Obama is weak and the Republicans smell blood.

    yeah, end the ethanol subsidies.

    "Clinton reverse his falling fortunes and recast House Republicans as stubborn partisans, not savvy insurgents" Wonderful spin doctors clinton employed - they could sell ice cubes to eskimos.

    Clinton had as much culpability for the 95 shut down as the repubs, but he spun it better. the end result was the repubs were able to force slick willy to accept LESS SPENDING, which reduced the deficits.
