Barack Obama-Leave my state alone!

    Obama is meddling into the affairs of the state of Wisconsin.  This after he meddled in the affairs of the state of Arizona.
    Did this guy ever read the Constitution?  Did he understand it if he did? 
    The governer of Wisconsin told Obama to butt out, it was none of his concern.  And it isn't.  The people of Wisconsin voted for the governer and legislators in office now after the previous governer and legislature did not have the brains or the guts to resolve the issues the state faces.  If it isn't what the people of Wisconsin want, they will vote them out next election.  My guess is the only ones leaving will be the cowardly Dems that don't have the guts to stand up for what they believe in.  Ironic that they fled to Illinois isn't it?

    Obama better worry about his own issues in trying to solve the problems with the federal budget.  He can't fix anything there so he has no right to preach to a state and tell it what to do!

        I haven't seen any evidence of Obama 'meddling'. Your OP suggests it, but offers no facts to support the assertion. I have been watching the news and the White House has done nothing beyond offer opinions. Is there a clause in the Constitution that I missed which prohibits anyone in the federal government from stating an opinion?

        Beyond that, Wisconsin is still one of the 50 states.. last time I checked.

    Apparently he didn't meddle ENOUGH in Arizona, as Arizona is now suing the federal government for not protecting their borders adequately!

    Yet another damned if he do, damned if he don't scenario....

      Arizona is suing because the federal government does little to protect the national border not its border with California but, considering that California is a tick away from total collapse, they may want to close that one, too.

    I actually love the idea of Obama over reaching even more.  What a boon to the 2012 GOP nominee.

    Trust me on this one, UCV.
    If California should implode completely, the only people emigrating to Arizona will be from gated, country club communities in Orange County. Arizona will be happy (and lucky) to have them.
    The rest of us wouldn't go to Arizona if you paid us...

        I am from Santa Cruz, 70 miles south of San Francisco. It's what's called Northern California - which is quite beautiful. We refer to LA as the armpit of California.

            And we thank you for the usual dispassionate and impartial opinion of Californians as 'all leftist wackos'. BTW, I am in FL now -- the water is warmer.

            Leftists bankrupted the state? Then please explain to me how Texas has a higher debt than California does.

    Leave it to you, LaLo, to reduce the most geographically diverse state in the union to two cliches.
    LA is not California.
    And actually, given the results of our recent gubernatorial election, it's not even Republican!

    Ironic your profile does not list a location.  I highly doubt you really are from Wisconsin.  You probably do this any time Obama's name is mentioned in relation to any state.

    There is nothing wrong with asking government workers to pay in more for benefits.  Faux News has people thinking this is what it is all about.  For you people who get your fake news from them and Limbaugh listen up.  The main issues are, the governor talks of a budget gap, yet lowered taxes, and more importantly, is trying to take away the long held state right of collective bargaining.

    Since Faux and them have your brainwashed to think unions are bad, maybe you should do history on how well the wonderful corporate leaders treated workers before their existence.

    Hmmm. Since 1900 Republican governors have outnumbered Democrat governors 3:1 (15 vs. 5).
    But it was leftist wackos who bankrupted the state, eh?
    Perhaps you are not following the actions of our newly re-elected Governor Jerry Brown. He is cleaning up the massive mess left by his predecessors. Not unlike the mess left for Obama at the federal level...

    I know, huh, Doug!
    I hope our buddy Tony0724 of San Diego doesn't catch wind of this. He would not appreciate being called a leftist or a wacko!

    I have to admit that I think Obama should stay out of this. It's clearly a state issue and the people and their reps should make this decision.

    And I'm a very liberal democrat from Massachusetts. But I would not have wanted George Bush meddling in Massachusetts politics. Come to think of it, I don't want Obama deciding what benefits our state employees get or not.

    (He's meddling because his White House political team is helping to organize the public unions across state lines.)
